The location is excellent, we walked everywhere from double Bay to Circular Quay, there are many excellent bars and restaurants nearby and the Cross is a stones throw away if you want to catch the death throes of sleaze. The rooms are about backpacker standard. They were clean and well maintained with absolutely no frills. No fridge, no jug no...

We found the hotel rooms dirty. The walls all needed a good wipe and the toilets smelt disgusting! The plus was the staff especially the young girl on reception were very friendly and helpful. We chose this hotel as we did not know Sydney area at all and thought the location to train and public transport would be good.

My sister and I spent 6 nights at this hotel. The first room we had to have, as no other was available, was a tiny cubicle with 4 bunk beds jammed in. This was totally unacceptable as there was no room to even open or unpack a suitcase - and we were only 2 people - not four! The 2nd...

Great view of harbour bridge etc from out 5th floor room good clean room with ensuite which was adequate for our needs - we wanted to be out & about in Sydney so didn't need all the extras - air conditioning was a great bonus as the temperatures soared. Lovely friendly, helpful staff

This is budget accommodation perhaps a few steps up from hostel accommodation, so I had no expectation whatsoever, have worked in hostels in a past life.

Friendly staff but the rooms and the lifts needs a good clean up and carpets needs to be changed. I was actually worried to be barefoot as the carpet looked disgusting! When we first went into the room, it had a terrible awful smell. Great location but not worth the money! Sorry guys. 👎👎👎

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighbourhood Profile
Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
