Katherina Wetzel

16 December 2007 Katherina would recommend this property

Liked: Good location just 2 minutes from Kings Cross Station. We had a nice double room with fridge and fan. The room was pretty clean, also the bathroom. We were on the 3rd floor, which is propably the best for people needing a quiet night. The kitchen has been cleaned more than 1 time a day, but there are always people making a mess. Many people around making party, outside also many people smoking pot and being drunken as hell. If you dont mind that - this is a perfect place to stay at Sydney!
