For the money I paid is was good. Basic but that was what I expected. Clean quite good located. It was my privilege to be making use of the international house facilities.

Location ..close to city & walk to trendy Newtown. Spend a week over SydNYE (Sydney New Year) in the premier state. Public transport is great & Sunday is capped at A$ 2.50 /day. The rooms are rather small with shared facilities (bathroom / kitchen)
Mr Alex K

Brilliant location - swim pool in Victoria Park is a great bonus
