8/10 Very good

he cleaner replaced the batteries, I returned a month later and it still didn’t. Most channels didn’t come in, but I’m not there to watch TV so not much of a bother. There was a fridge, but on the rubber seal it looked stained and wasn’t sure if just kinda an old discoloration or if more mold. It was unplugged when I arrived so it did smell quite a bit. The only thing I wish did work was the WiFi. I think it’s room dependent. I was on Room 30 by the elevator on Floor 3. I could access it if I went and sat on the staircase. It is just the 1 thing that would be nice to access from your room. The rooms are definitely dated and scuff marks are on wall and carpet is a bit discolored in spots and a crack in the door with tape over it (didn’t affect the security of it.) So there’s that type stuff but I found it to be clean like sheets, towels, sinks etc.. The bathrooms were fine. For females there were 2 toilets and then in a separate area 2 sinks. The only odd thing was that there was no sink with the toilets. You could go into the shower if it wasn’t in use and use the sink with the shower or the sink in your room. It would be nice to have a sink by the toilet but again for the price not something that bothers me. My room was facing York St. so there’s a little bit of road noise but not bad on the weekends. There of course is noise from the pub downstairs but that probably depends on the night and time of year, but it’s to be expected. I really liked it and stayed there 1 more n

4/10 Fair

Terrible choice for staying in Sydney
It does not have an air-con in my room. Two sockets did not work correctly. The window was opened for circulation, but it became super noisy until late. The bathroom light 💡 did not work properly either.
