Disgusting! I was not expecting much for the price and it was just a place to rest our heads after a wedding - I was only expecting something clean. It was definitely not clean. Dust and inch thick on mirrors and furniture. Bathroom was filthy. I wore things in the shower and did not want to sit on the toilet seat.

Goulburn goal has better conditions than this place. No air con, beds over 15 years old, sink smells like urine, $10 Kmart fans. Worst place I have ever stayed in. Don’t waste your time spend a little bit more money and sleep in comfort.

We booked this place as compared to the other hotels around it this stood out as the cheapest for the area, so for this reason we certainly weren’t expecting the ritz but there are a few things that could be fixed up. Let start but saying, check in was easy, staff were very friendly cannot fault that. Room was spacious enough, had a small clothes rack with hangers, a fridge, a kitchen style sink and a fan. I knew it didn’t have air conditioning when booking but for me it was soooooo hot. As it was twin beds, even on pivot the fan would not reach us both. We had the window open too but there was no breeze, and the road below can get a little loud. I brought with me a small towel which I was wetting and sleeping with which helped. As I said though, I knew it had no air con so this isn’t the fault of the hotel, possibly if I had asked for a second fan we could have gotten one but I’m not sure. Then next day I popped down as I needed to change up a note to use the washing machine and dryer, but could not see anyone on reception for at least half an hour despite it being between the times they are supposed to be there, I walked all over and could find anyone so ended up walking to a local shop and buying something small to get change. Even when I went to breakfast area there was no one, not even in the kitchen so if we had come down wanting breakfast I don’t know how we would have gone about it. Not a major issue though. The thing I would take biggest issue with is one of the first floor bathrooms seems to have a big problem with bugs. Not sure what they were but they were grey in colour and there were hundreds of them gathered in the shower and around the toilet. Not the biting type thankfully but still not very pleasant. Wasn’t a problem in any of the other bathrooms though. A couple of times I did go in there though just for a quick wee and there was no toilet paper either so maybe a few extra checks throughout the day just for this would be good. Location-wise you are only about a 10 min walk if that to Darling Harbour which is lovely, lots of restaurants etc. About a 3-5min walk to a small convenience store with anything you might want for your stay. Overall I am not disappointed with our stay. We are on a budget at the moment as travelling all over so it did us for what we needed. Air con turned out the be a bigger issue than I anticipated but I knew they wouldn’t have any so can’t blame them for that. Only that one time was not able to see staff when needed, and a little work on the bathrooms is all I’d say. I have also seen a few reviews commenting on lack of breakfast variety. When I translated to English pounds it is £7.50 for coffee, tea, juice toast, eggs amongst other things I cannot remember right now. For that price I hardly think you can complain, you would struggle to find any cheaper!

they cancelled booking then tried to up the price substantually higher. Would not stay there because of this, people should be aware of this pofiteering attitude of this place, and on looking at pics its not worth the price to stay in what is backpacker rooms

We booked this hotel as a holiday package from Jetstar. It's on a good neighborhood, close to many nice places. However the hotel is actually a B&B and the building is for lease/sell. We got first surprised by the lack of ensuite bathroom in our standard family room. The shared bathroom was dirty, missing tiles and no amenities in there, not even a floor rug. The room furniture was old and damaged, including the curtain,carpet and quilts. I wouldn't reccomend this place. I am not sure how Jetstar accepted this place on their package.
