jonquel location excellent for transport, walk to city, Circular Key, restaurants, cafes quiet comfortable rooms, decor becoming dated and in need of renewal but not desparate would definitely use the hotel another time and recommend it to friends in-house breakfast appreciated
Sam I Am I find it hard to say anything negative about this YHA but am giving it one star less than Wake Up around the corner on 'Overall' (same for the rest). The only reason I can think of is the atmosphere is a tad stale, something echoed by other reviews here. It's also a great hostel for a slightly older crowd (ie. 30+). The last time I stayed here was with my (then) 7 month old daughter and wife in a dorm room which we got to ourselves. They were able to provide a cot with no problems. A 4 star hotel in Singapore had more problems with that! It's about the same price as Wake Up which puts it in the highest scale in Sydney, but considering location and quality I think that's logical. It's also nearly always full it seems, even though it has over 500 beds! It has a pool, but not a bar (the reason I'm only giving it 4 stars on Facilities), although there's one about 3 steps from the front door and it's nearly always packed with YHA guests. I've stayed here twice and would happily stay here again.
