Great accommodation 4 backpackers / short holidays
Posted Apr 30, 2014
At first, I was sceptical. I had tried one place just up the street around World Sq, and I can hear speakers blaring out late into the night-that was a one private room too, not the dorm style. Still, as I look around in this website, I found this place through sorting out guest exp vs. price. Mind you, I don't want to stay in upscale hotels as I don't have farms full of gold egg-laying ducks but I'm not interested in staying in a room worse than their cages. To top it all off, I had to be in Sydney for a competition, so being fresh for the day everyday is kind of a must. So, let's start.
When I come at night, I was a bit surprised about seeing the place (with a pool and all). Even though it looks more like a kiddy pool, but hey, I don't see much places having that at all ! The overall ambience is what you can expect from a backpacker place-but minus the blaring speakers as it's away from any nearby clubs-which are good if you want to get a good sleep. The kitchen looks clean and maintained more than most places I've been to. The wifi-and later, the lock-was not expected, but the reasonable price was worth it. What made me realize why this place had good ratings and reviews-was the bed itself and the room. I was afraid of bed bugs-which can be prevalent in most places-but I was glad this place was well maintained. The check-out was easy, and I don't need to deposit any money in advance. Less to say, this place was definitely well worth the price.
