Stayed here three nights with my daughter. The rooms were very basic and small, but we only needed a bed to sleep in as we were out mostl of the time. The rooms were clean and well serviced, staff were very helpful and the free breakfast was a great bonus. Proximity to public transport and the Sydney CBD was excellent.

Staff seemed very unenthused to be there.Facilities were rusty, bathroom door was a home job that did not close properly and the exhaust fan cover fell off left dust bunnies all over the counter. The chair in room was falling apart. Ok price but not worth the bad quality.

The staff as usual are very helpful and friendly. I normally am able to stay in the same room which is clean and a suitable size for 1 person. The staff at the cafeteria are also very friendly and helpful. I will stay there again .

For the budget accommodation, the hotel is pretty great. Rooms are very small and the breakfast buffet is not the largest of a selection, however it IS included in your booking! There is a train station behind the hotel so I did hear many of them during my stay. They did not bother me however if you are a sensitive...

The price was good and the room was clean however the breakfast could be a little better. Location is close to the city and if you want a nice bed with TV and small fridge and your own bathroom at a cheap rate then this hotel is fine. The rooms are small but you only sleep in it when your...
