Booked for a Wednesday and Thursday night. Accommodation is simple, small and old. Suitable for travellers on a budget. Problem is I was stung $290/night and realistically should have paid maybe $120-$150/night? Sydney was booked up around the time of booking so I understand peak demand... but seriously even in peak demand, $290/night is just over the top Good facilities,... More

Very Tiny room but clean and the bed was very comfy with crisp white linen. Breakfast is very ordinary cereal and toast but very convenient. The staff were very attentive and replenished juice and read frequently,

We stayed 4 to a room - one double bed and one bunk bed. The room was small and the air conditioner dripped all night. The room was fairly insulated from the traffic noise, but once a window was opened it was very noisy. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was included - simple toast, juices, and... More

location is not that great, not close to the station or eating places; have to pay for wi-fi. Room is tiny. However, love the cleanliness of the room and the premises. Guests weren't noisy at night. Breakfast is a bonus, would have loved some fruits as well. May consider staying there next time.

A clean basic hotel near to central station the breakfast is very basic and finishes at 9:30. The wifi isn't all that good and it's is $6 per 24 hours per device which is a bit backward considering it's 2016!
