The hotel room was small but for the cost it was clean & had a great location, so I would say that it is a great choice for traveling on a budget.

small room

The facility is old and the room is small. The grout between ceramic tile turned black years ago. It is next to China Town and 30 minutes walk from Circluar Quay.

No frills but good location

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and chose it because of the location and the cheaper price. We had stayed in Sydney during the first 3 nights of our trip through Australia and we had stayed at a much better hotel for about the same price. The room here was very claustrophobic. If you are someone who knows you won't be spending a lot of the time in your room and can get it for a good price, then the location makes it worthwhile. Check-in and check-out was very smooth and all the employees we dealt with were friendly and courteous.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you don't mind walking, don't bother to buy one of those multiple use transportation passes. My friend and I were able to walk to all the major sights within 15-20 minutes. It is worth taking a ferry ride once but you can just purchase a one time ticket for that. Also, if you are from the States, (even NYC!), you will find food and drinks a bit expensive, so be prepared! Cocktails will run 14-15 American dollars and there is no such thing as a 2 dollar cup of coffee to go!

Solid one-star hotel in excellent location

The location is excellent, but the facilities are terrible. The room was small and quite dated. It looked like the last renovation was sometime before the 1980's. The sheets and towels were old and threadbare. This is a very solid one-star hotel and does not deserve even two stars by USA standards. Would not book or stay here again.

Bad, Bad, Bad!

Please don't consider this hotel...it's a total dump. Halls are filthy, carpet is stained. Room is a closet, barely enough room to move, walls are all scratched and dirty, carpet again is stained, bathroom is not clean. So many hotels in Sydney that are the same price and so much nicer. Wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy! IF THERE WAS A ZERO I WOULD HAVE USED IT!
