This place claims to be a "private hotel" when all it is, is a hostel/backpackers place. I had called the hotel earlier in the day to let them know that we would be arriving between 12am-2am as we were driving from Melbourne. The man I spoke to told me that once we got there, to call on the same number...

This is not a 'hotel' but a hostel. Yes, you pay for you get but this was an all time low. To start with high, this place is in a great location. Bars/restaurants across the road and close to the kings cross station. Fairly quiet patrons. The rooms are small but comfortable and clean. The room smell musty the entire...

I got to the hotel before I could check in but the staff were happy to look after my bag. My single bed was comfy as was the pillow. I shared the bathroom but as I didn't take a towel and one wasn't provided, I went showerless for the one night I was there. About 500m to Kings Cross Station....

The title says it all! ThanK you Allan for the great customer service. We are a family of three (with a 3y.o. child). The free breakfast was just a bonus- bread provided, boiled eggs, butter, jam, cereals, milk, coffee, tea, juice - super generous management. Building is safe, had a good sleep each night. Can be noisy at times during...

We were located right next to the staircase and close to the kitchen. The rooms weren't sound isolated and there was a gap between the door and the door frame in the bottom, so all they noise traveled directly into the room. We were there for three nights and didn't get a good night sleep. We were getting woken up...
