The Darling Harbour Hotel is a mix of Hotel and Hostel, I mean, there are shared bedrooms with shared toilets outside and also single suites. I stayed in one of those (therefore I can’t say anything about shared bedrooms and toilets).
It was clean, safe, I can’t complain. No lifts in the building, which means you have to carry your luggage through the stairs. There is a fully equipped kitchen to the guests. In my room there were a fridge and small TV. No AC (and it can be a problem in hot days, although the fan was OK to the mild temperature in the nights when I was there).
Location of the place is excellent. A few steps from the Darling Harbour (one of the most touristic places in Sydney – full of bars, shops and restaurants) and the light rail station (Pyrmont Bay). 15 min walk to the nearest subway station. Walking distance to everything in downtown. Convenience store just across the street.
It’s obviously not a fancy place, far from that, but enough good to the price paid and localization. If you compare it to awful prices of Sydney Hotels especially in New Years and consider its great localization, I would definitely recommend this place.
I see a trip as an opportunity to explore the places and I just use the accommodation to leave my bags, sleep and shower in a decent place. It was the right place to me.
