Very nice property. The Rocks is a great area within Sydney. Did not take me long to get there from the train from the airport. Also, they have many events onsite which are a great way to get to know other travelers.

It's interesting for a night or two, but you're sharing a washroom. The double is quite spacious and was clean. You have to be quiet tho after ten might be something to keep in mind..
