“Fantastic location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2012

We were recommended the Y hotel by a friend who lived in Sydney, as he had had friends stay there who found it clean and reasonably priced.

First up, the location is fantastic. Less than a minute from Hyde park and right in the center of the city. It would be hard to find a better located hotel in the city.

We were on a budget, so opted for a shared facilities room. The room itself was small, but well equipped with tea and coffee facilities, fridge, air conditioning and a television that pulled out from the wardrobe. It was also very clean.

The shared facilities were the most disappointing aspect of the hotel. There were separate facilities for men and women, but the men's only contained two toilets and one shower. Another shower at least, would have been useful given that there were quite a few rooms sharing these facilities (the female facilities had two showers). Although, to be fair, there was only one occasion where the shower was occupied when I wanted to use it. The shower itself was the main disappointment. Despite shower gel and shampoo dispensers being provided in the shower, it is the water pressure that really lets it down. The shower was no more than a trickle, and the temperature sometimes fluctuated. It was also occasionally affected by another hotel guest flushing the toilet.

That was the only negative I could find with this hotel though. A contintental breakfast was supplied, offering Croissants, toast and cereals, or there was the option to upgrade to a cooked breakfast for $5 per person which was good value.

Internet facilities were available, but were an extra charge. We used the internet to check in for our return flights, and the cost was reasonable at $1 for 15 minutes, and 50c per printed sheet.

Dear Cas101
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback of you last stay at Y Hotel Hyde Park.
We are very happy to hear that you found our hotel has exceeded your expectations.
I am sorry to hear about your experience with the share facilities. We do have more facilities on other floors and the ratio of male Vs female does differ. The water pressure issue you mentioned, I will pass on to our Maintenance Engineer to resolve.
The internet fee is very reasonable in comparison other Hotels but it the cost reflects the usage so you only pay for what you use.
I Hope you and your travelling partner enjoyed your time in Sydney and se look forward to when you next return

Warm regards
Stephen Peace

For a precruise hotel this was inexpensive , clean, small and outstanding. We had a huge breakfast included. We were in the heart of Sydney. I would definitely recommend it.

We were going to an event at the Opera House and needed somewhere cheap, safe and relatively close so very happy with the Hyde Park Y. Rooms adequate and clean. Staff very, very friendly and helpful. I left my Kindle there which was returned to me via Aust Post promptly so very happy. We were really shocked we could get somewhere in the CBD that offered such great value. Will definately stay there again and have recommended to others.

Room Tip: Maybe pick room on quieter side but not really that much of a problem. Given the location some noise...

this hotel is in a good location with Darling harbour only 15mins walk away and the opera house about 25! china town is also only around the corner!

the hotel staff are quiet friendly however they were not very knowledgeable when we asked if there was any attractions to do!

the standard double room was clean!but the bed wasn't very comfy as it was 2 single beds pushed together and there was an obvious gap between the beds!

the shared bathrooms were pretty clean in the morning if you get in early (apart from the smell) but come evening they were horrendous

the continental breakfast was good and you can upgrade to a full breakfast for only $5! the only bad thing about the breakfast was the tables were not being cleared and it was hard to find a clean one

all in all, not a bad hotel if you are looking for budget accommodation in Sydney's CBD

Dear MCG88
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback of you last stay at Y Hotel Hyde Park.
Being located near the heart of the CBD certainly is a bonus and with transport and attractions virtually at your doorstep.
The shared bathrooms are serviced regularly throughout the day and at times may have been heavily used prior to the next service and this could account for the issue you raised. I will certain review this issue with my staff.
I am pleased you enjoyed the breakfast provided and I do understand if a majority of hotel guest arrive for breakfast, tables can be limited at times.
It seems in all that you have enjoyed you stay with us and I will follow up on the issues you have raised.
We look forward to welcoming you back when you are next in Sydney

I stayed for 10 nights in March 2012 in a single deluxe, which was perfect for what i paid for it. (Equivalent of £59 per night) Best priced hotel in Sydney, staff were very friendly and room was clean/modern with a decent ensuite bathroom. Breakfast was great!, you can upgrade from continental to a cooked breakfast for a very reasonable $5. Hotel in excellent location off Hyde Park and is a reasonable 20 mins walk down to circular quay and under 5 mins walk to Museum train station, which is on the mainline to and from the Airport. Could not ask for a lot more from this place for the price i paid. Very happy with entire stay and would stay there again when i next visit Sydney!!

Good location. you can walk to the parks.
to be honest, the room is not big and is not soundproof.
The breakfast is decent ,but sometimes it took you some time to find a table to eat.

Dear yzhao
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback of you last stay at Y Hotel Hyde Park.
I am sorry to hear that had an issue with noise. Being in the heart of the Sydney CBD and surrounded by tall building can at times be noisy but we do have quieter rooms away from the main street. I would recommend that you request this on your next stay with us. Our breakfast cafe is well patronised and at times we do get extremely busy with other guests and this does make thing challenging to find a table at times but my staff are they to help and assist wherever they can.
Thanks you once again for your feedback and we look forward in welcoming you back when you are next in Sydney

We stayed in an ensuite double and could not fault it for the price. Simple rooms rooms were clean with all you need. Reception were great and the included continental breakfast was also good for the price. Great value Sydney hotel located close to the CBD.

Reception matched the deals available online over the phone and helped find an extra room for the same price when none were available online. Great service.
