Could have been so much better
The room was extremely hot with no air conditioning and located right outside a busy bus stop, causing constant noise that prevented me from sleeping throughout the night

Budget hotel in central Sydney
The hotel was good value considering the central location. We were on a tight budget so we did not mind that the hotel was not modern and we had to use a shared bathroom. The staff were very helpful at check in.
