Positive Reviews

Great central location in Sydney

As well as being in a reportedly attractive area of the city close to shops and restaurants, the location of the hotel was a highlight for many in terms of getting around Sydney. The Central Railway Station is 15 minutes away on foot from the property, while the popular central business district is also within walking distance.

Helpful and courteous staff

When it came to customer service, this aspect of the accommodation was often highly rated by former visitors. The staff members have been regularly regarded as very helpful and courteous overall.

Food tasty and affordable

The standard of the food served at the hotel's on-site bar was praised by many previous guests. As well as the menu being considered well-priced, the food was usually commended when it came to its taste quality.

Negative Reviews

Shared bathrooms far from ideal

With none of the rooms containing en-suite facilities, the shared bathroom policy at the accommodation was understandably seen as an inconvenience by former pasts. Moreover, the shared bathroom was said to lack shelving space, while the cleanliness was also criticised on occasion.

Wi-Fi not available in rooms

It has been noted by previous guests that the Wi-Fi is one of the weakest facilities provided by the hotel. This opinion has mainly stemmed from the range of the Wi-Fi, which has usually been described as really limited - to the extent that the service does not reach the rooms.

Dusty and basic rooms

Dust plaguing the rooms has proven to be an issue for numerous former visitors that stayed at the accommodation. In addition, the rooms have also been considered basic with few amenities available.
