    The staff was fantastic! We were able to check our bags and then go and see the city. Super convenient with a 5 minute walk to Central Station and then rode the Big Red Bus for 2 days. Quiet room and very reasonable rate for a Saturday night. And nearby Paddy's Market and some great local food.

    No ice available and the water temperature in the shower was inconsistent. But would still select them again if in Sydney.

    Clean room with a spacious layout. If you're only looking to sleep and shower its a good place. Nothing is complimentary.

    This place will nickle and dime you to death. I was surprised I didn't have to pay extra to gave running water. Nothing is complimentary. They charge extra to store your bags, insane rates to do laundry ($5 per pair of underwear as a start). Internet charged with time interval, but all have a 1,000 mb limit that I'm pretty sure us programmed to countdown autonomously. I purchased 24 hrs of internet and it reached its bandwidth limit within 20 minutes after I sent 2 emails and accessed 3 webpages. Overall, not ideal for business travel or long term travel.

    Comfort is certainly not the goal

    Location--close to Central Station.

    The bed was really uncomfortable. I hadn't slept in nearly 24 hours, and I could barely sleep on this bed. The rest of the room served its purpose moderately well, but was in desperate need of a bit of color/an upgrade.

    The price was very reasonable and the facility was really good. The location was perfect. It was located in the main street, Gorge St, and it was really convenient. As it is located in the center of the city, there are so many shops around this hotel and I could go and have meals easily.
