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

This is the worst place to stay in Newtown. Do not do it to yourself. It cost $100 per night which is a massive rip off for a room the size of a large cleaners cupboard and a shared bathroom which was the size of my kitchen pantry. Spend a little more and go stay somewhere, anywhere, else.
