I stayed at a really nice 8 bed dorm with wooden floors and two big windows and spacious lockers. There were only a few showers/toilets on the floor but it wasn't a problem because the hostel was half empty. The kitchen could have had more pans and other kitchen stuff, it is quite small for a big hostel. The staff was nice and helpful. I would absolutely recommend to stay here if you want to stay outside of the city centre.


Had a great time while I stayed here. Great that they had free snorkel gear and fins as well as bodyboards! The stay was comfortable and even after I checked out they had great secure lockers downstairs to leave my bag in while I was at the beach.


Very clean and up to date. Not a party place but still able to meet people. Good location too

The room are very good there is enough space but the bathroom and kitchen are not very clean. And in the locker room downstairs the use to smoke So the smoke come up and often I smell smoke when I was at the reception. ..


Great place to stay in Bondi, beaches right on your doorstep. Could do with a few more toilets and showers. Fantastic stay.


We had a twin room which was cramped, hot and not very clean. It had no air con, which would be fine if there was a fan which most hostels have if there is no air conditioning. Kitchen was too small. Really not worth the money we paid for it, was glad to leave. Showers on first floor there were only two including toilets, they were gross, didn't want to take my sandles off.


Not realyl a party hostel but eveyone was really friendly! Its definitely worth a stay if want to stay in bondi. Near to the beach anc bondi rd, which has some amazing chicken and salade bars.


its a perfect hostel if u dont wanna stay in the city and close to the beach. it's very easy to get from sydney city to the hostel. (30 min even if there is a lot of traffic) the staff is very helpful and kind and its a clean pleace. Nothing bad to say!


Amazing hostel! Incredable location, views of Bronte beach from terrace, fee mins walk from Bondi beach, surrounded by bars and restaurant's. Only negatives are those probably caused by their YHA affiliation; no drinking after 9!! Also the outdoor areas close, unnecessarily, and too early. Great facilities, great hostel :)


Stayed in a few female dorms here, ranging from 4 beds to 8 beds. None had air conditioning and not all of them had working fans, so it could get quite warm overnight. Other reviews mentioned that there weren't enough bathrooms on each floor, but I didnt find that to ever be an issue. Liked that the dining area / common room was open all night, the movie rooms were a nice touch, as well as the courtyard and rooftop - though would have been nice if those were open a bit later than 10


Really enjoyed staying here, it's in a great location and was really clean and secure


I got bed bugs from the hostel three weeks ago and the bites are still there. Otherwise it was good. Friendly people and good atmosphere.

This is a nice hostel, it is close to bondi and the beds are comfortable, security is good, a nice lounge area and good kitchen. However, there was not much atmosphere here as most people are living and working here, also seemed very clique. There are good people staying here, but there are one too many bad people here. The staff are okay, the guy from belgium is very helpful and friendly. Not a bad hostel but it did not feel fun.
