Fantastic affordable place to stay. Rooms are compact, but have all you need. It’s a squeeze for the 2nd person to get around the bed with the TV mounted to the wall, but it’s fine for a short stay. Beds and pillows are very comfortable. Surprisingly so! Easy access to great food on Enmore Street.

Location is great. Walking distance to train and bus stops. Many eateries in the area too. Soundproofing in room is great. Front desk is helpful and friendly. We have a king suite and the room looks new and well equipped. Will definitely stay again if we are in Sydney.

Perfect. Right in the heart of Newtown but the rooms are quiet. Coffee pod machine and complimentary mulled wine was a nice touch.
