We loved this place, clean bathrooms and rooms, powerful showers, TV, good wifi, very friendly staff, centrally located. We stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it, it's better value than Maze and quieter However, our whole experience was spoilt by one member of staff, one of the elder women with glasses and long redish brown hair: As we...

The advertisement for this hotel describes it as 'boutique'. I'm not sure what the definition of 'boutique' is but it does not apply to The George Hotel. It is at best a well located backpackers or budget hotel. The room we had was very small. The carpet, beds and linen provided was clean though the quilt had several cigarette burns... More

I have been staying in this hostel for nearly 2 years now and I feel at home with the friendly stuff, the environment is clean, they supply white towel every single day for free and collect rubbish. I found the reception is one of the nicest hostel in Sydney with free Internet and public phone. They have ample sanitized toilet... More

They make money and care not about the place. - the maintenance was terrible. The fridge was overflowing with expired milk and rotten-gone-black vegetables. Things were falling apart and very unkempt. - sheets were dusty, and "hard to reach" corners in the room, below table etc. - were never vacuum. - room with weird smell. Having seen our heavy laugage... More

We all know how expensive Sydney accommodation has become so this hotel was a good little find. Right on George Street and within 10-15min walk of everything makes this place a good start. Stayed in a Budget Single Room, Small room but clean, Single bed but very comfortable, The shared toilet and showers were clean. This place is not the... More

For the price, don't expect too much. But for a backpackers, the service, overall cleanliness, and rooms are good. The kitchen is small, and a little dirty (the fridge is a mess), but I don't think that's entirely the management's fault. I was very impressed with how clean the bathrooms and toilets were, and the availability of hot water. The... More

I was there with friends for a night. We took the family room, which was only AUD110 a night! We chose this backpackers because of its central location. Overall, this is a good, decent, no frills and value for money backpackers. Despite the place looking slightly old and dull, what I really liked were: - Clean sheets - Convenience store... More

Even though this is a budget 2 star accommodation/backpackers it served our needs well.. It is very well located near to all the shops and very handy to Central Railway station. There is No LIFT and you have to use the stairs all the time.. Staff were friendly and helpful
