This is a great solution for solo travelers looking for affordable accommodation that is close to the CBD. The location of this little hostel/hotel is particularly good as it is tucked away from bustling Kings Cross and Potts Point so it is quiet but still extremely close to the restaurants, nightlife and amenities of the area. This is definitely a budget option so don't expect much in the way of extras eg. no hairdryer or ironing board or bathrobe in the room. I spent three nights at Springfield but had to change rooms so got to experience a twin and a single. For the small difference in price I would opt for the twin even when travelling on my own as the layout is better with room for a suitcase and the bathroom less cramped.
One warning for travelers: rooms on the first floor that are on the right hand side as you enter the building have windows that open out to a light well that has lots of air conditioning vents and probably pipes that hook up the building's plumbing. This means that it could feel hot when you opened your window and there were a few times in my stay in the single room on that side where I could detect the smell of sewage and cooking fumes. The better option was my twin room which was 115.
I think most rates are room only and it is better that way as the options for food in the area are excellent with lots of places open early and very late.
Finally, if you have the chance to book in advance rooms can be had for as little as $90 a night.
