    Third time staying and found once again clean, tidy & value for $. Great location.

    Can be alot of traffic noise but understand being heritage building there is retrictions on what can be done.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    central to everything next door to chinatown easy walk to city and close to trains and buses rooms were clean and comfortable

    late at night and early morning was a bit noisy due to a garbage truck and delivery vechicle because our room was adjacent to the back alley the location of the hotel and value for money totally made up for any slight inconvenience

  • Single

    Its position is great

    No Breakfast and sometimes lacking in astaff at front desk

  • Family with children

    Its location to central Sydney was great. All attractions were within walking distance. When we became stranded in Australia following the volcanic activety the staff were very helpfull

  • Older travelers

    Fantastic location for doing the Sydney thing. Walking distance to city, Darling Harbour and Circular Quay.

    Not really, it suited us perfectly for a two day stay.

    Good location. Across the road from Paddy Markets.

    It is a glorified hostel. But a very expensive one. The lift was the worst i've ever been in. I would have taken the stairs only there wasnt any!!!! Plenty of fire doors to lock you in if there was a fire though! The bathroom was horrific. Fan went on all night. Felt like I was in an old ferry or something it was so confined. 5 beds in the room and we booked a superior double room. And it was over $180!!!! Have travelled through loads of Australia and so far has been the worst place we've stayed. Never again!

  • Group of friends

    It has gone downhill since last time we stayed. The cafe has closed and it looks terrible with the plyboard board closing the door way and it hasnt the appeal it had.

  • Couple
    9.2

    the staff recognised us from a previous visit and made us welcome. the rooms are comfortable and reasonable cost for sydney. with easy access to the main shopping/tourist areas.we would recommend.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Location and having a family room for 4 instead of booking 2 rooms.

    Sleeping on 2 mattresses on the floor. No bed.

  • Single
    6.4

    Did not have much time to explore hotel. Only staying overnight due to early start for work.

    Did not appreciate hauling my bag up 2 flights of stairs as lift only went to 2nd floor. Staff did not advise of direction of steps out of the lift so got lost.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    To be able to stay in the heart of Sydney and so close to shopping and public transport as well as access to great asian low cost dinning at affordable tariffs is very fortunate.

    The only concern is perhaps the street noise at night but it is a small price to pay for otherwise a great place to stay.The other issue is the hot water can be lacking for showers.

  • Single
    7.8

    Great staff and value for money

    Very noisy (people above me made a lot of noise). And do not get the airport bus - it was an hour late, the driver did not help get bags on, I just had to dump them on top pof everyone elses bags on the front seat, and he drove like a maniac.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    We could all share a room without sleeping in the same beds

    The bunk beds were extremely squeaky and the bathroom smelt a little interesting the shower was not good at all

  • Single
    6.2

    It's location and the staff were friendly.

    The room has a bathroom with windows over the door into the bathroom - therefore when it is bright it is impossible to have the room in darkness for a lie in - why are these windows needed. The 2 rooms i had seemed to be next to some skip depot o from about 3am in the morning all I could hear was the sound of skips being unloaded. How can you sleep with this when there is absolutely no soundproofing in the windows. Also the constant whir of air conditioning units could be heard outside the window.
