    Fabulous

    The position in Potts Point meant access to shops, cafes and transport options was excellent. The room costs were fantastic for accommodation in the central Sydney area during the Easter break.

    Rooms were small, old and tired. However, the rooms were clean with access to a communal kitchen helping to keep food costs down.

    Very good

    The location with good access to public transport. Nice restaurants/internet/ and a large grocery store was close to the hotel.My room was clean and the bed comfortable. Good information on tours and a city map. Airport shuttle was also available. Quiet area.

    No elevator. I was on the third floor but the staff were very kind to take my suitcase to and back from my room.

    Fabulous

    It is very close to my daughter, so I didn't have to travel far.

    I would have liked a balcony room, and a little more space, but I only really just sleep there so it was good for what I needed. I did think the bathrooms were a little small !!!

    The location was good. Close to kings cross and a half hour walk to town.

    the room smelt like cigarettes and the hotel staff were reluctant to offer us clean towels even though we stayed there for 6 nights. Rooms were dirty and the bathrooms were rarely cleaned. Ideal if you're on a budget and plan to spend most of your time outdoors.

    I booked a 4 person room, so I liked that we could all stay together & liked that it was only around the corner from kings cross.

    It was a tiny room, not really worth $40 a person per night, the bathroom was the size of a closet & the extra blankets in the cupboard were stained.

    Superb

    Great position, yet quiet, with easy bus/train walking access to City. Variety of restaurants, delis and excellent supermarket

    No lift could be difficult for those older or reduced mobility.No hand/face towels.. although we were given extra bath towels on request.

    The staff, very nice and helpful.

    Do never, ever go to Chalis Lodge. The pictures shown in the site are completely different that the reality. The rooms were cold, dirty and old. We had to leave the hostel before the end of the reservation. Chalis lodge is a nightmare.

    Receptionist very friendly. Good location.

    First room (cheapest) we booked was an absolute dive. Asked to upgrade (an extra 15 aud) was much better but bathroom still rubbish. Shower leaked. tv reception awful.
