It's a very nice and clean room and a good location. But the service is terrible. I've forgot my watch and I've been trying to contact them by phone and emails since I left the hotel on 16/02 and haven't got any respond.

The room needed a thorough clean! Foreign hair was throughout the bathroom. (yuk) The kitchen was a bit grimy. It was cheap by way of comparison to other accomodation and the location was handy. Not sure would stay there again.

Booked Randwick Space given its proximately to the Sydney Children's Hospital. Received confirmation email to confirm two nights stay. Post visiting hospital we tried to check into this hotel. Spent 40 minutes trying to call after a very stressful day. Finally contacted a customer service rep via the online chat function on their website. They advised we couldn't find the...

I had a great stay at Randwick Space, you get what you pay for which is a clean room in a safe and clean building - centrally located with numerous bus connections to the city, friendly staff and a peaceful nights sleep! The staff recommended some great restaurants to me, which I would not have found otherwise - they are...

Had a 7 hour mid night flight from Singapore to Sydney. We arrived at the reception office for check in and was informed the rooms were overbooked. Apparently they receive an email from Expedia regarding our booking but was overlooked and the staff didn't book us for our 3 nights stay. Staff wasn't helpful and even said that he was...

I stayed here for 5 nights in December. The staff were friendly and helpful, and when I asked to change rooms (due to the noise of the road), they helped out. The rooms with a bathroom are fine, although the beds are incredibly hard. Generally very clean, with weekly room cleaning (not daily). There is no air-conditioning and limited air...

We stayed at Randwick Space for 9 days, as we had found it to be the cheapest accommodation over the New Year period (this was still an EXTORTINATE price for what we got). This ISN'T a hotel-it is a quick way for a university to make an extra $1000 a week-per room. When we arrived the receptionist was polite but...

I stayed here over Christmas/NYE. Basically you get what you pay for. At first I wasnt that happy but the receptionist who worked during the holiday period (skinny tanned girl) was amazing. She made me and my family feel at home and so the experience was overall pleasant.

After staying at a few hostels and b & bs in Sydney, finding this place was great. In Sydney, accommodation is expensive and all the decent places-for decent prices are booked out very quickly. Randwick Space are student halls that they rent out for the summer so you share toilet and shower facilities but they are cleaner and more modern...
