    I stayed over night with 3 small children, all around I would stay here again. The rooms are a little older but they have everything you need. I did find a few long hairs in the bathroom which I am assuming is the cleaner because I found one on the bed too. The staff were very friendly.

    Great budget stay option”

    This was my Eleventh stay at Highfield Hotel in two years. The staff are always so helpful, but special mention must go to recent addition Peter. Peter goes out of his way to make all guests feel welcome and he is never too busy for a chat. This is what makes Highfield Hotel a real home away from home. Likewise Owner Adrian and son Eden go the extra mile to ensure that all of their guests have a pleasant stay. The free included breakfast is plentiful and of good quality. The availability of a kitchen with hot plates, oven and microwave is a welcome feature if you need to self cater. The communal bathrooms have all been renewed and are generally clean. The beds are comfortable and the rooms more spacious than other budget offerings in the area. The location is second to none being a short walk to the Train Station, Woolworths, Coles, restaurants and the Kings Cross nightlife. I personally prefer the Highfield Hotel to more expensive properties I have stayed in the area.

    This is a backpackers, with a few rooms that have an ensuite. Everything was fine, but just know that this is a backpackers and is aimed at people with a tight budget. Having said this, Its cheaper to book other places a bit cheaper than here. But I did have a good stay.

    This is my second stay here. Staff are very nice and friendly. They do provide simple breakfast with coffee, tea, toast and egg. Stayed in shared bathroom double room this time, due to the ensuite room was sold out. There is tv, fridge and small basin in the room. The room is very small as expected, unfortunately, it look old too. Slightly disappointing with it. However, the shared bathroom is very clean. Next time, I would still prefer the ensuite room which is more comfortable. Thanks again to Peter and Adrian which make our stay here welcoming, hope to see you all again.

    During our stay, we found many small insects in our room which is including cockroaches. Kitchen has a small fridge (it's a bar fridge for the whole hotel) and did not have space to put our frozen food. The room is too small for two of us, only one person can go through the exit and the room is not clean at all!

    Good and cheap if all you need is a bed and little breakfast”

    The room was pretty small and if you have a few different electronic devices to charge, the power points were scarce. There's a TV but I didn't find much interesting on the channels available. The WiFi is okay but you only get 500 MB a day, which seems standard most places in Sydney. You have to share a bathroom and there's only one bathroom for males and one for females. The breakfast is decent. You can have coffee, tea, cereal, toast, cheese, and boiled eggs. The kitchen is smallish but it can seat maybe 10 patrons. You can sit there with your laptop during the day but I found it a bit too tight an environment. The general manager is nice enough. He'll help you with your bags. If you're looking for a bed and not somewhere to hang out, it's a good option.

    location. Location. Location.

    except for showering and sleeping didn't spend much time in this hotel but I doubted why it had called itself a hotel It actually have a TV and a small fridge in the room which is not normally found in backpacker hostel but regarding to its other facilities it shouldn't called itself a hotel. The room is quite old and smelt like it was not occupied for a while. It looked quite tidy. My boyfriend had a problem with the noises in the midnights though I am not aware of it while I was asleep. The location is the only good thing, only a minute walk to the King Cross station, supermarket, restaurants nearby and open till midnight.

    Staff

    Photos supplied on Agoda completely misleading as to the actual hotel. Room had no chair or table ( I had to ask for them). Seriously needs some decoration, better lighting. Internet flaky, third floor up narrow stairs, electronic gates would never consider staying here again. With just a little bit of effort and investment it could have been so much better than the stingy place it is. Maybe I am spoiled by Thailand where for the price I paid here it would have been a first class hotel.
