Bare Minimum

I was told many things about Redfern before my trip but I would like to say that we had no issues at all even when we were wheeling our luggage 10:30pm at night (the fact that we are two medium build men might play a part). Got to hotel 10:30pm. The receptionist did his "duty" (the attitude was a bit like.. you're at a budget hotel so feeling welcomed is not necessary, just be thankful you get somewhere cheap to stay for the weekend). Checked in and the room was tidy. Slept fine and had basic breakie (cerial & milk.. toast is provided as well). Stayed 3 nights and had no issues. Thank you Y Hotel for the accommodation during our Sydney stay. =)

Bad Choice!

It was just an unlucky bad choice. The hotel did not look welcoming from the outside and inside. The location, at a road junction, was rather unsuitable tafficwise.The receptionist was also not so friendly and welcoming. Did not bother to open the entrance door for us, despite seeing us from his counter having difficulty opening the door from the outside. It shouldn't have been listed in your website at all!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

to enjoy the night life find a hotel that is minimum three to five blocks away from it all.

Good budget accommodation

Room was small, but that is expected given the low cost. Five minutes walk to Redfern station. WiFi wasn't included in the package but could be had at a very reasonable price. Other reviewers have mentioned about train noise. Yes , the hotel is right next to railway tracks. But the noise didn't bother us much.

Courteous, convenient, comfortable, affordable!

Three nights in clean, comfortable, and convenient accommodation in Sydney! What a find! Breakfast a bonus! Double glazing a big help with traffic noise. Would definitely go back. My husband attended a conference for 3 days, I enjoyed the city sights, short walk to station made travelling around so easy for both of us.

horrible

The room is extremely small, seems like there's only one double bed, 2 of us can not standing or change cloth at same time. Its not relax at all, doesn't matter how cheap this hotel will be, we won't come back for sure.

Girl Escapade

I went visiting Sydney solo for the first time and opted for this hotel because it seemed to be clean, safe and in a good location. I wasn't disappointed about that. The room was smallish, just enough to fit the double bed, a bedside table, a closet and a fridge. For me alone, the space was okay. All the necessary amenities were present and more. I liked that there were an extra pillow, tea and coffee, an iron and a full mirror! The room was cleaned but I'm quite sure the sheets were not changed, which I don't mind anyway. Hot shower, air conditioning worked properly. The hotel also offers adapters for the stay. Various kind of clients stayed there, I saw backpackers, elderly couples, families... but no children! Hooray! It was positively quiet even though some noise could be heard from the hallway. The complimentary breakfast consisted of hot beverage, juices, milk, cereals and toasts. Quite basic but fills the belly nonetheless. About the safety, you'll need a key card to access the lobby. The whereabouts: nothing exceptional. I bought stuff and ate in the city center (15 mins by train) so I'm not sure if there are grocery shops or restaurants nearby. The closest train station (Redfern) is a few minutes by walk. Otherwise, if you don't mind some exercise (lots of ups and downs), some attractions are considerably close. In conclusion, I had a fantastic (4 nights) stay and if I have the chance to visit Sydney again, Y Hotel City South will be on the top of my list.

Value for money

For what you pay you are getting a good deal. Obviously it is not luxury accommodation but it is only two train stops from town, the station is just down the street and the rooms provide you with all the basics you need. Very happy with my stay.
