The strand is my local pub so I am a little bias, but the service is impeccable without being over-bearing and the weekly trivia night is a hoot. No attitude, just good old booze-inspired family fun!!

Best part of the hotel is the food and drink downstairs. Really nice! But the actual hotel was bad, literally 2 toilets for 30+ people on a floor. 1 oven with a hob for the whole hotel no chance of ever making food as the kitchen is always so busy. Hotel is full of long term residents set in there... More

The service is horrible! The people behind the bar are not Nice. Almost every person stays there permanent, so the room was a mess like a teenage room! Disgusting! Most of the guests are Britsh, Scotish or Irish and they stick together and are not social at all! So if you want a horrible stay in Sydney, stay here! Waste... More

Hi Jeanine, We're very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. It is unfortunate that our service was not up to your standard. We do have a lot of long-term residents as we are a very popular place for backpackers in Sydney, as such we are currently working on general tidiness in regards to this. When you... More

Not family oriented but children welcome before 9pm, we picked this pub out simply due to its location and what a find. They offer great daily specials, meal size is more than generous. Great quality food, highly recommend if you are after a good pub meal.

Stayed at The Strand for 2 weeks and it was great. The pub served exceptional food and a great Sunday roast dinner! The room I stayed in was a 6 bedded dorm - very clean carpeted room with efficient fan. Beds super comfy and lockers available in the room too. Roof top kitchen which is now very modern and refreshing.... More

Great little pub, with a range of really good quality, very reasonably priced meals. We have eaten here on many occasions and never been disappointed. The sausage and mash is always a favourite. Trivia night adds a bit of entertainment

We stayed directly across the road and thought we'd stop for a quick drink on the way to the AFL. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We ordered food and were very pleased with everything we ate. All meals were decent sized and tasted amazing. Recommend the Chicken Wings either as a share or a light meal.

Well, it wasn't as if the staff at the pub were rude or anything, or the patrons scary, but this place seemed to be pretty boring - it just seemed to be like an ordinary pub, something that really doesn't do all that much for me, especially in the inner city. Sure, as I said the staff were friendly, however... More

One of the worst hostels I've stayed in. There was no fan or air con in the middle of a summer heatwave so had to keep the door open meaning I could hear the noise from the busy road just outside.

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighbourhood Profile
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
