Reminded me of a prison cell. Dirty marks where things had obviously splashed on walls and not been wiped off. Cheap, but not cheap enough for the room.

No ceiling fan or air con

Pros: Location was good.
Cons: Staff attitude was not satisfactory.
It was OK for its price for just one night. The linen appeared to have been slept by someone else, by the look of wrinkles and marks. Was disappointed that there was neither a ceiling fan or air con on a hot summer day of over 40 degrees.

Decent but no aircon

Pros: Location
Cons: Air conditioning and access to some basic facilities like irons.
Location: King St, Newtown.... food, drinks and eclectic shopping.
Dorm style rooms associated with Sydney Uni. Younger crowd around and located in an excellent spot, but could get noisy (a few busy roads nearby etc) and the kickers for me - no air conditioning, no iron in the room. So at a cooler time of year, could be OK but if it's hot - probably a miss. Staff super friendly too.

Extremely basic & dirty.

Arrived to find the bathroom was in desperate need of a clean. Grime & filth in the shower & basin. Toilet with marks & floaties! Disgusting. Fortunately staff moved us to another room. It was cleaner but still not what you expect at a hotel. I know this is student accommodation but you expect cleanliness when you’re paying $130 a night. Odd smell in hallway & room. Pillows were paperthin & matress was uncomfortable. The only saving grace was the helpful staff however I will never stay here again.
