We enjoyed our walk to Glebe then through Syd Uni to Newton and back. Great central location as a hub to explore the CBD

6/10 Good

For anyone looking for a conveniently located short stay close to Central, the property offers good value. Amenities need modernising, and for a light sleeper noise from adjacent rooms could be an issue. Bed comfortable and room well laid out.
