how do you feel to pay for a "normal" accomdoation and find yourself in a dirty, extrasmall and not serviced room? not a pleasant feeling the only positive aspect of this "hotel" is position close to railway station. then remain a dull place, where you can't open your window and you never want to come again.

We stayed for a week in central private hotel, and found the staff very helpful and kind. We had a double room and shared bathroom, but rooms with bathrooms are available, however shared shower facilities clean and quiet. For the price I don't think you can go wrong here, location is amazing, right next to central station, convenience stores and...

Considering I booked it at the last minute literally an hour before the price was good for Sydney. The location was great for me too. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room self contained - kitchen, shower and toilet but very small and cold. For one night stay it was alright.

Basic accommodation very close to Central station in Sydney. We went for a double with shared bathroom, our room was on the first floor - showers and toilets on 2nd floor - clean. The room was spacious with a sink and fridge in the room, as well as a desktop computer...! Comfortable nights sleep and for the location and price...

Inexpensive place to stay to explore Sydney from. It's not swanky, but the room was spacious and comfortable and has kitchen facilites. This can come in handy for snacks and taking a break from expensive restaurants.

You get exactly what you pay for in this hotel. It is a no frills experience but with plenty of space, comfortable beds and a good level of service I believe this represents very good value in a city with very expensive hotels. I definitely recommend if you'd like to keep costs down while staying walking distance from the city....

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
