Good location, 15 mins walk to the CBD and 10 mins to Kings Cross. Hygiene here is non-exsitant, Cockroaches everywhere, I counted 5 on just 1 wall in the kitchen within seconds, had them crawling up my leg whilst eating breakfast too. Mold, dirt and dust everywhere. Had to change my bed as soon as I arrived as it was covered in a bright orange substance... don't know what. Would not recommend unless you are desperate, but it is the cheapest you'll find and its a roof over your head.
