4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2010

I spent 5 nights in two rooms at this lodge in early October while visiting my daughter at UNSW. My first room in the back of the building was very nice- adequate size, good bed and very clean. I checked for bedbugs right away and found nothing. The front desk woman was helpful and accomodating. The last three nights was with a friend in a room with two twins- a little smaller and noisier, as it was closer to the front of the building but still adequate and clean. The small kitchenettes are well equipped and guest laundry was a nice touch. Location to Coogee and is great and the bus into Sydney is right out the front door and takes about 20-30 minutes. Internet was good though it cost 10$ per 24 hours. Not bad. All in all a great deal if you want this location.

The other girls did say there was no hair dryer and only a tiny mirror for 3 women to share. The staff person wasn't overly helpful or friendly.

We hardly spent anytime in room - it was just for sleeping.

We were held in Sydney for another two night with the Virgin Blue systems down and we found a brand new place a $40 cheaper.

Above average, small comfortable and clean room; friendly staff; very convenient to shops, transport and restaurants; street and a couple of off street parking spots.
Will be happy to stay there again.

Stayed there 3 night in cold early July 2010, delighted to see the warm air-conditioner functioning well. Very clean room. Very economical pricing at A$81 pn.
Shortfalls: Very small room, only 3 car parking spaces (though it's easy to find one on streets around at night); bath room door squeaks (needs oiling) and complaints ignored. No replacement of linens and towels throuughout the 3 nights stay.
Will recommand you to bring a small WD40 with you to grease the squeaking hinges of the toilet door, otherwise this is accepable for a budget guest.
