Just to be clear, this is YWCA accommodation. The hotel is good for the budget traveller who isn't interested in luxury and just wants a private space to sleep.
The hotel is located a fair distance from the main tourist drag of sydney, if you're not a keen walker then you're definitely looking at travelling by bus to the pciture postcard areas. There are a few food outlets around but this area is mostly residential and offices. The hotel is right next to a railway line, which was okay for us but I imagine if your room was next to it this would be quite loud. There is a large park between the hotel and the main station, which feels safe but occassionally seemed to be frequented by some locals asking for money.
Breakfast is okay but there isn't a great selection and you can't be afraid of sitting with strangers at busy times! The staff are all okay and efficient but don't expect anything more than what you'd expect for this kind of price. The rooms are VERY small and the bathrooms are separated from the rooms by a sort of cupboard door.
GOOD POINTS - clean, excellent value, would definitely visit again if travelling to sydney on a small budget.
