By train from the Domestic/International Airport:
Catch the Airlink Train to Town Hall Station. Take the stairs to street level and look for the big sandstone building we call Sydney Town Hall (opposite Woolworths). We're located directly behind it. That's right guys and girls...walk around town hall to the back of it and you'll see us located next to the Scary Canary Bar.

By Shuttle Bus:
If you are arriving at the airport, we offer a free shuttle transfer for our guests staying three or more nights, otherwise it costs $15 for guests staying less than three nights. All you must do to take advantage of this service is find the Airport Information Desk and organise a transfer on the Airport Connect Shuttle Bus. Provided you are staying 3 or more nights with us, as long as you hang onto your receipt and give it to us at check in, we will refund you $15 of the cost of that ticket! How good is that?! Please note that the shuttle bus hours are between 5 am to 7 pm.

By Taxi:
Depending on the time and traffic conditions, a taxi will cost you $40 - $60.
