Great Location. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. We could walk to sporting fixtures and there are a lot of very good eating locations very close by. We would recommend this hotel for a budget stay close to central Sydney.

Good clean accommodation and overall good value within walking distance of UTS and central railway. Arrived by motor car which since Chalmers St is a major feeder into the southern end of down town Sydney can cause a problem of parking outside. There appeared to be rear access which it might be worthwhile checking with front desk beforehand as it...

The second time we have stayed here as a group. The first stay was without fault but this time some of the approach to service was not as good as before. One of our party had housekeeping let themselves in as she was trying to say not to come in due to not being dressed.....

I booked this place on the location and recommendation from the websites and I was not disappointed. The beds were very comfortable and the towels were in abundance we could have had three showers each a day if needed. Very handy for the main train station and the bus stops across the road.

The rooms were great, the front desk staff were helpful and friendly. Location is an easy walk from Central station. Sleep quality was reduced by light spill into the room and noise from other guests out at the vending machine until late and in the early morning.

Close to Redfern train station. The room was functional and as I expected. More maintenance would have made the room better. There were two power points that were broken. The bed was comfortable and the room was air-conditioned.

The overall room may not look new but the beds are comfortable and toilet is clean. The 2-seater sofa is made of steel and the edges can be sharp. Though there is a pvc cover protecting the armrest, the corner of the armrest aren't protected..
