Customer service was great. Is

Customer service was great. Is in a heritage building, so does come across a bit decrepit, and the lack of powerpoints in the rooms was a bit inconvenient. Our room was directly off the games room, so was a bit noisier than I guess another room may have been. Excellent location. All told, for the price and allowing it IS a backpackers, it was fine.

Could not find my reservation

Could not find my reservation and nearly had to pay twice to be checked in. Very very basic facilities, even by backpackers standards. NO POWER POINTS IN ROOMS, you need to charge phones etc at the front desk. Kitchen and common areas always very busy and saturday nights very noisy. No heating.

The hotel was literally like a jail cell. There was a mattress on a bed frame and thats it in the room. I've stayed at hostels before but for the price of this place was ridiculous. In the ladies room their is no sanitary bins - so u can only imagine what I seen. Do yourself a favour and do not choose this hotel. Although staff were friendly.

This is not my usual choice of accommodation. Unfortunately I booked attendance at a seminar in Sydney not realising it was the weekend of the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. My choice for central accommodation was at the extremes: backpacker or inflated 5* hotel rates. I had a double room to myself. Three complaints: the room looked nothing like the advertised room, other guests were very noisy and there was no powerpoint in the room. Staff were generally helpful and cheerful.
