The room and bedding were clean, I had a single. The breakfast had a broad selection of both hot and cold choices. I was in Sydney for a very short stay so did not spend much time in my room - I found it to be perfect for my needs on this trip. While the bathrooms were shared, there was plenty of privacy. It is very close to a ferry stop and that made travel quite easy. The staff was pleasant and friendly. I would recommend this to single or pairs of travelers, especially those that will be out and about most of the day. I am not sure that it would work well for families with small children, but older (10 yrs and above) would likely find it to work for them. The cost was very low for the Sydney area and value per cost was extremely high.
