We stayed at the centre for a week while visiting Sydney. It's close to a bus stop which takes you directly downtown in about 20-30 min. Shops, restaurants and bars are all within walking distance. The room was clean but small and we had not nearly enough shelf space. Same goes for the bathroom: nice and clean, but only one... More

I was very disappointed by this place. It was $101 a night for a single ensuite room which is of course quite cheap, but I did expect to at least get a bed that would allow me to rest. However the single bed was like a rock and I tossed and turned all night, every night. In the end I... More

We had a problem with a hostel we was suppose to book, and we found this place had a room available, it looks exactly like it does on the photos which was a relief. It was always quiet and no one to disturb you!, we had the suite room which had everything you needed including a view over Randwick. Close... More

Comfortable, clean and friendly staff. Full kitchen and lounge upstairs for use. I stayed in a share bathroom room and it was fine. Great for a budget hotel. Near all the good restaurants too.. all walking distance away. Would stay here again.

I like staying in religious affiliated accommodation as you are made to feel welcome and wanted. This place is no exception. Whilst dated, it is clean and comfortable, and great value for money. Excellent option if needing to stay close to hospital or attending conference at UNSW. Bus stop nearby. Will return.

“Suite 3 has the most amazing view of the city & a lounge area on a verandah. The downside is that it overlooks the bus stop, so it can be a little noisy (it didn't bother us - we slept straight through the buses).”
