Nothing in Room, only Bed & Sink
Good Location
Stayed there for 3 nights. The room is so small and nothing in my room, only bed & sink! Free Wifi & clean enough for the room because this hotel was under repainting during staying there. Shared bathroom is clean enough. Good location! Close to King Cross Station & only 1.5km walking distance to CBD and 2km walking to Sydney Opera House

Not suitable if check in late
Convenient location, clean and good security
The problem is their reception close at 8.30pm. This has to be stated upfront as it caused me great trouble. Have to call the staff to come and let me check in. Imagine, when u just arrive at a country and if without telephone coverage, how to call? and there is a $10 charge for late check-in. Besides, they don't even allow half an hour late check out even when the guest check in late.

Staff is great
Helpful staff, breakfast, fridge in room
This place isn't the greatest looking but it has all that you need. The rooms are old but clean with tv and your own mini fridge. Staff is crazy helpful and nice. Breakfast is pretty good. Location is right next to train station.

It's a budget hotel in a great location
Location, Price and Cleanliness
All good- initially it took 15 mins of ringing the buzzer to get staff attention, but this seemed like a one-off.. Room was clean and comfortable.. Only downside- the internet, though free, was slow and unreliable. But all in all, so long as you dont want luxury it's all good

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.

clean and good location
Room was clean and location good to reach city, breakfast okay
Price of the hotel was comparatively cheap for Sydney but comfort is only little better than a backpacker. Although bathrooms are shared, the extra sink in the room comes in very handy.

Great location. The facilities however were poor
Location is the only good thing about this backpackers
The location of the hotel was excellent. However the reception staff were rude, the building was extremely old and run down, and I wouldn't stay here again
