Omg only the location is good but the rest is a lot to desire. It was dirty, the walls need paint for heaven sake. The shower had hairs from previous guests. And the smell of the carpet was atrocious. I won’t go there never again. So disappointed I love Sydney and the surroundings and for that price there are better places to stay. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Very central location. Clean, but tired rooms. Lots of carpet stains.

Very small room and different to the photos - I imagined 2 windows that would open. instead there was one looking out at a brick wall. I could not regulate the airconditioning properly - either freezing or too warm good location and friendly staff

Very convenient. Good value for money. Excellent service from staff. Disappointing that we requested a room with view not expecting it to be just the street outside.

The room smelled when I entered, the walls were dirty. It was just a bit gross.
