Liked: Very well located, right in the city, very close to circular quar and darling harbour, and if u dnt like walking, there is also the free shuttle bus on george street which runs between central station and circular quay. Free WIFI, big room, big lockers in the room under the bed, comfortable tv room, a lot of pans, plates and cutlery in the kitchen. Friendy staff.

Disliked: The cleanliness...They just empty the bins in the room everyday. You can find sometimes cockroach in the kitchen and in the room. The showers are not every hot, I had to wait until 10 mins to get a hot shower.
