The rooms were minute with grubby damaged furniture. I complained about the room floor being wet only to be told it was the pesticide used to kill bugs left in puddles in the rooms. When I asked the front desk I was told it was "harmless". I got quite ill after a couple of ours breathing in the fumes. My...

I lived across the road from this place back in the late 90s for a few years so was well aware of the traffic. Very basic and small rooms. Other places in the area have shared bathrooms but a sink in the room. Having said that the showers are hot and the pressure is good. Rooms are very small and...

There were bed bugs in our beds. The staff refunded our money but made no effort at all to find us somewhere else to sleep! Bedless at 2am is not great for visitors to Sydney! Had to drive home 2 hours!

We took 2 single rooms here while up in Newtown to see a band. Ideally situated, friendly staff, and our rooms, though minimally furnished were more than adequate, and clean and comfortable. For an extra $10 we got a parking space with them too, parking is at a premium in Newtown. This place straddles the border between a hostel and...

Just so you know, it's not ok to advertise the provision of wifi when it's completely and utterly unusuble. I was on a trip for work when everything else was booked out beyond the allowable expense range so I thought I'd give it a go. I wasn't fussy, was prepared to put up with no aircon in the middle of...

We weren't interested in driving or parking in this very busy section of Sydney, so although it's more hostel style, this was great for my son and I. We each had our own bed and a place to park the car for our entire stay.

Dear Udo: Thanks for your lovely feedback. As a regular guest you are welcome all the time! Please kindly notes our friendly staff next time your favorite "french room", we will hold room for you. Newtown is busy traffic area, due the parking lease expired then we have to fund other space for guests parking, thanks for your understanding. Regards
