Liked: Very neat and tidy, good rooms. Everybody has his/her own locker in the room, included an electric point so you could reload your telephone etc. Nice bathroom! Very good location, close to all the touristic attractions.

Disliked: - Internet is expensive (4 AU dollar p/hr) - Doors smash loudly, so it's impossible to leave the room early in the morning without making noise and disturbing sleeping roommates. - I could not check in before 1.00 pm while I arrived at 7.00 am. So had to wait in the lounge.

Liked: Beautiful location in the Rocks district, really close to the main downtown sites. It also had a lot of character, straddling an archeological excavation!

Disliked: A little too expensive.
