Location was nice.

Location was nice. Bed looked clean. However, While we were taking a shower, we felt a bit cold. Besides, Air conditioner was so loud when I slept. But totally, It's good.

3rd Visit

Location, Price, Food
This was my 3rd stay in under 3 months - this is now my go to place when I stay in Sydney. Great Location, ridiculously good price, rooms are good, comfortable and clean. Staff are friendly. Don't hear noise from the bar or the railway. The food in the pub is excellent and really reasonably priced, if you want to go out Surry Hills is one of the best dining districts in Sydney.

Not recommended for couples or young children

Not in the best part of town
We had to find a place to spend the night as we had the early morning flight the next day and not a lot of choices left. It is a pub and they have parties going on all night. Not recommended for families.

Great bargain in Sydney

Location, price, Food
This was my second stay, I love this place, rooms really comfy & clean. No noise from the pub downstairs or from the station or main roads. The food in the pub is excellent and a steal. For $100 its fab and lots of nice cafes around to get breakfast in the morning.

A Gem

location, Value for money, Food
This is a great little hotel, above a pub that does really good food. The location is excellent, at under $100 for Sydney I wasn't expecting much, but this place is fantastic! Great sized room, comfy bed, good sized bzthroom, everything spotless. Friendly staff and no noise to note from pub or Central station!
