Macleay Lodge is a good solution if you want to spend a few nights in Sydney on a budget without going to a noisy and overcrowded hostel.
The lodge is in a good position, 10 minutes walking to King's Cross underground station and a bit more to the Royal Botanic Gardens. Don't expect too much here: the rooms are not cleaned, the towels not changed and not even the rubbish baskets emptied, but you will always find the shared toilets and showers in good and clean conditions.
Our room was a bit on the old side and didn't have much storage space with no cupboards, no shelves, 5 hangers in total and just a bedside stool. A couple of real bedside tables, more hangers and an extra lampshade would help in storing your stuff and clothes making the room more comfy, but one can survive without them.
For those who like to purchase their own meals out and heat them in the hotel, the room had handy stuff like a microwave, a built-in sink, a little dining table and two chairs. Our window faced a dark but quiet courtyard. The curtains could have been better.
The staff here was nice and friendly with us and there was always someone sitting at the reception ready to help the guests. The Macleay Lodge is an average accommodation which gives you a good place to sleep as long as you don't have too much expectations.
