This is a tiny inner city pub. Recent;y the restaurant has been renovated. Can't comment on the food. But as a little pub it has a great band playing most saturday nights. Very hard to dance lindy, rockabilly or RnR but not impossible. Most locals cannot dance so bring a dance partner. The music is from a regular local music...

My husband and 3 freinds stayed here on a "mens" trip to Sydney. Tehy couldn't fault the value for money - honestly a teenagres backbacker costs more! And they were sure I would love it as great area and very rustic with lots of character - but only a short walk to entertainment areas !

Stayed for 4 nights - it was basic but comfy. Loved the proper pub downstairs with its wide array of drinks. The small kitchen was clean and very usable unlike some other budget accommodation. Enjoyed chatting with the other guests in the relaxed atmosphere of this hotel. Good value and an easy short walk from Darling Harbour.

Such a nice area, really cute accommodation. Free wifi and own private bathroom for a good price. Pretty small room and small TV! Owners are really lovely and friendly. Would recommend for travellers seeking budget accommodation.

Stayed here for two nights before catching a flight from Sydney. We arrived at around 11pm the first night so it was convenient to stay here due to the later check in times they allow. The accommodation is over the little pub which looks cute. Our room was a good size and although basic, had all we needed, although no...

This is a great little pub in a leafy quiet area of inner Sydney. The rooms are basic but comfortable and very good value for money. The city, Darling Harbour and so many other attractions are all just a walk away.

A small, local pub in Ultimo area. Its kind of hidden from eyes. I can't really say anything for staying part but the food and drink is good & reasonable. They have specials some days. I have tried burger (chicken), there was also BLT option. I can easily say for $10 it was pretty satisfactory meal with chips. Recommended if...

I stayed at this hotel many times and I think I have tried all rooms ;-) (but my favorite remains the n8 with double bed). Located just buried the city center, it is a calm and quiet place (except for the birds singing every morning). Great pub and bistro appointment floor. Really cheap laundry ($ 3). Quiet and clean. Small...

“Try and get a room on the top floor to avoid the noise and the smell of gas. But if you are especially susceptible to the cold, you should try and get a room on the floor below as the top floor is freezing”
