    noise is ridicules, also having no air conditioning or window to generate own cooling stinking hot room

    Very good

    The Formule 1 is centrally located, and though the facilities and furnishings are fairly basic it still offers very good value.

    The insulation between rooms was insubstantial resulting in the intrusion of noise to adjoining rooms.

    The location is perfect if travelers wish to be near the city center. But, as said, this is a budget/backpacker class hotel, so comfort is minimal.

    1) The shower has no tray. You wet the whole bathroom floor after shower. 2) In saving energy, the room has only one single ceiling light. Very hard to do any reading task at night.

    Fabulous

    I will appreciate the help of staff especially Daniel. They helped me whenever I approached them. Room was simple but big enough. Even toilet was big which i like most.

    I personally believe during weekended the hotel is used by couple interested in having some fun. Lots of youngsters were there moving around wearing only undergarments which do not look descent. I feel during weekended families may avoid the hotel but weekdays is ok.

    location

    shower is not sectioned off in the bathroom so the entire room gets wet. rooms are very old and needs a LOT of work. only has bed, table and chair. no closet, no beside table. very very basic. you get what you pay for.

    location, walking distance to city and harbour. did have a nice view of the harbour.

    no fridge, tea making facilities, phone. even in budget style motels, they must have the conveniences of tea making facilities and fridge. I was not able to put my medication in a fridge. this was disappointing. this is more like a backpackers. too noisey.

    The hotel situates in a place, which is very handy to anywhere in the city.

    Staff at reception were treating the guests very badly.

    Location.

    For the price it was over rated. I slept on a bunk bed. Everything was hostel-like at hotels prices. No free wifi. Breakfast expensive for very little.

    Good location. I was checking in early and able to get a room which was nice.

    The room smelled of old carpeting, though once aircon was switched on this was not so problematic. Also a street room was very noisy.

    the staff and the location of the hotel. Other than that, I will never stay at this chain of hotels again and i will never recommend it to any one i know

    Almost everything about the hotel. the rooms are really poor, the bed sheets are not clean, the room that i initially booked over the internet was not the room i found. this hotel is was a total shock for us.

    Cheap and staff were helpful Close to Kings Cross and CBD so lots of restaurants, cafes and bars close by. About 1 km from St James station which is a good stop to/from the airport on train. Good for travellers or people wanting a party location.

    Very basic rooms and quite noisy. Next to a very busy street and little sound proofing. I could hear people opening and closing doors all night. Close to Kings Cross so people coming back late at night after drinking. Not dangerous because of that but tended to make a lot of noise late at night. Extra for continental breakfast.

    Superb

    Great location. Very friendly and helpful reception staff. Liked that it had secured night entry. We stayed on a Sunday evening, so fairly quiet. Simple facilities but excellently priced for a brief stay. We had a "million dollar view" of Opera House and bridge from our room.

    Superb

    What makes a good stay is the customer service.... The check-in staff and management here are always welcoming and time efficient. A big thank you to Gopad, Malika and AJ as always. Housekeeping is always respectful especially after a late night at the clubs and pubs.

    I wish this place had a balcony or free internet hahahahahahah - that would make it perfect
