When paying over 100 $ a night you at least expect the place to be cleaned. This was a horrible experience. We just booked it as we wanted to extend our stay in sydney for 1 night and all of the hotels in our budget were full. Big mistake from our side.

We booked Avoca Lodge due to the proximity to the hospital but this is a warning for everyone who's considering this "hotel". Literally everything in our room was dirty, here's a list: - Dust everywhere - seems like this room hasn't been cleaned for decades. - The carpets are disgusting, not just in the rooms. - The cutlery and plates...

This place did not feel safe and was very dirty. I didn't sleep much throughout the night as people were slamming doors, pacing up and down the hall way. The rooms were tiny, and were not clean at all.

Thank you for your review. I am unsure what you mean by 'unsafe'. The building is locked early evening and only other guests can access the building between 6pm and 8am. Room doors lock automatically. Nothing was reported during your stay. Our single rooms are quite compact and may I suggest you consider booking a larger room next time for...

I'm not a very demanding person. I'm used to adapt to every place I visit, but for this time I found it fair to tell you how awful the place was before you take your personal decision. Firstly, you can find either cockrouches in the kitchen while preparing a tea or in the bathroom while a relaxing shower. The place...
