We got what we paid for, economical accommodation, friendly service, great location and we were most happy with where we stayed. It was like an upmarket style backpackers but you have your own bathroom.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

My daughter and I spent two nights here last week. Very central to Kings Cross and only a short walk from train station. Signage could be a little more obvious as we missed when first waking down the street and only saw it on looking back, as it is placed high on right side of building not out front. And entry off William St is up steps which are really only for late night use. Other entry is off another street. So a little confusing. Rooms on the small size but still plenty of room for the two of us. Very basic and no pictures or anything on wall. And bathroom floor was very tired looking. As we discovered our television didn't work later in the day, we were offered another room immediately. This room was of same size but a lot tidier with pic on wall. And bathroom a lot tidier. Good air conditioner, and not too noisy. We were on 6th floor which made it quite quiet from traffic noise. Beds were comfortable. Staff very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast is only $9.00 for toast, cereals, yoghurt, fruit, tea coffee etc. Light continental buffet, which we thought was very reasonable. So ate here for the time we were staying. Hot chocolates from machine were great! A good budget place and I would stay here again if in the area.

The reception by the staff was excellent. Over the six days of our visit we were greeted with warm smiles from all the staff, and while we didn't know their names we felt part of the family. The close location to Sydney was great, good public transport, and dining at "the Cross" was magic.
