We stayed at O'Malley's located in the King's Cross area of Sydney. Despite the obvious drawbacks I would strongly recommend O'Malley's to the budget conscious traveler. The Hotel O'Malley's is located above the lively Irish bar also named O'Malley's and consequently there was a great deal of noise into the wee hours of the morning. The King's Cross location certainly has more than its share of weirdos but that added to the charm. Huge plus was the subway station conveniently located near O'Malley's. During our stay the hot water heater was broken so the showers were ice cold but our rate was reduced as compensation. We took two side trips (Katoomba and Tasmania) and left the majority of our luggage which was stored safely for us. Our room key was available to us from the bar when we returned late from Tasmania. Major plus was the convenient subway location from which we could reach all areas of Sydney. No restaurants I would recommend nearby!
