Reviewed December 21, 2013

we can call formula 1 a modern backpacker,

we book this because we was with a group of friends and was ok share the room, and also we went to Sydney to soundwave festival and to enjoy the beaches and shopping's not to stay at hotel

the locations was ok, close of the metro and few restaurants and supermarkets

if you don't care about share room this is ok for you

Myself my boyfriend and his friend stayed in a family room it was very cramped and the shower didnt drain well but it had cheap parking $20 a day which sold it for us! Room was clean but we stayed 3 nights and all the maids did was just half heartedly re-made the bed! Would benefit for a fridge in the room but overall did us fine! But for $129 a night including parking it was cheap enough for us.
Staff very helpful

Whilst the staff are pretty good. It is a case of you get what you pay for. It is a very small unit that has 2 double bunk beds crammed in it. I think it would be slightly better even if it had a small fridge in it to store water etc... I saw young families stay there and while I know that it's price would be very attractive for families on a budget, it would also be terribly inconvenient to stay. I don't know if id stay again but as I've said it is cheap.

Service from the reception was good and the staff was friendly and nice. But there was no shampoo. Not a must but would be nice to have some. Loyalty points can't be accumulated. Location is good for us

We stayed for less than 12 hrs as a stopover for our flight. The hotel is strictly OK. The proximity to the airport is the only thing that works for it. The facilities are as basic as you can image. There is hardly space to walk in the room when you enter because the bed occupies most of the room.
