Property Description

The ground floor comprises a historic public bar and restaurant and the upper floors are for accommodation only.

FACILITIES:

Free Hi-speed WiFi in every room.

Flat panel TV with USB, HDMI, and DVD, in every private room.

Ceiling fans, and large opening windows w/ flyscreens in every room

There are six shared bathrooms for only seven rooms without ensuites, meaning you’ll NEVER have to wait.

-IMPORTANT – Guests should be aware that currently - while we do have a kitchenettes for guests - the facilities are limited to toasters, microwaves and kettles. This is due to new council regulations regarding fire safety that do not allow us to offer stove/oven cooking facilities.

However, we are minutes’ walk from Chinatown which offers the cheapest dining options in Sydney, and there is a picturesque cliff-top park 1 minute walk away that has free public barbecue/cooking facilities - and great sunset views!

Our restaurant serves affordable and delicious meals for lunch and dinner 6 days a week. Our ground floor public bar closes at midnight at the latest and is open 7 days.

The hotel is not a hostel in the typical sense – there is not a large common area for guests to sit on beanbags and watch DVDs – however, the bar (and adjacent park) is a great place to relax and meet other guests and local people.

We also have some of Australia’s best blues musicians play live in the bar every Saturday night between 8:30 and 10:30.

LOCATION:

We are conveniently located near Chinatown and Central Station (Sydney’s main train station) in a quiet and leafy part of historic Ultimo, adjacent to a park. Darling Harbour is a 5 minute walk away and colourful Glebe, with its markets and cafes’ is a ten minute stroll.

Also nearby are Surry Hills and Newtown; famous for nightlife, and cafes and restaurants. Sydney locals tend not go to the city CBD, where most of the hostels are - unless it's to work or shop. Once you have seen the major attractions our staff can give local advice that isn't in the guide books.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The Lord Wolseley Hotel is also one of the oldest and smallest pubs in Sydney and certainly one of the most original. It has operated non-stop since 1881. The hotel will appeal to people that appreciate local institutions, and basic, clean and spacious accommodation at a very inexpensive rate.

RECEPTION OPENING HOURS:

Monday - Friday: 10:30am - Midnight.
Saturday 11:30am - Midnight:
Sunday: 11.30pm - 10pm. 

TRAVEL FROM AIRPORT TIPS:

Please note that outside of peak hour we are about $30 taxi from the airport.
Both airport shuttle buses and the train from the airport cost $16 per person, so it is not cost-effective to use these services unless you are traveling alone.

PLEASE BE AWARE; that because our reception closes at midnight (and 10pm on Sundays), if your flight lands within 1.5 hours of reception closing, you should definitely catch a taxi, as it will be cheaper than arranging a late check-in if you are late.

HOUSE RULES:

To be eligible to stay in a dorm; you must be under the age of 40, unless you are a visitor from overseas. Note, when booking out all the beds in an entire dorm this rule is irrelevant.

Under 18s must be accompanied by guardians.

    Superb

    05 Jul 2018
    We’ve stayed in numerous hotels around Sydney that we’re twice the price and beyond of what the Lord Wolsoley asked for, and none of those came close to making me feel as comfortable and happy. The best atmosphere, best location, best showers, BEST CLEANING LADY – will definitely be our go to for Sydney accommodation from here on out.

    Clean rooms and bathroom, limited kitchen facilities (microwave, toaster, kettle), was a bit loud at night from the pub guests below (which is to be expected I suppose)
