  • Best place for intense study. Love their quietness. The silence place with many visitors. The visitors having a high self-control of not making noise. Love this place so much !!!
  • Beautiful building. Great place to study or do work. Some Computers available for non locals to use, but not many so you may not get one.
  • Best place to study. Contains meeting rooms as well as study rooms. Every book you will find gere
  • Modern, silent and efficient. You can really read and work over there. I was preparing to take an IELTS and I visited the facility a lot.
  • It is a nice and convenient place to enjoy reading and to spend time in completing written papers.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
