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.


Overall a really nice clean hostel. We enjoyed our stay here very much and wished we could have stayed longer. For me the location was great (view from the balcony area is perfect!) as we were close to Bondi Beach but also close to the other coastal walks where the scenery is amazing. The only issue would be the toilet/shower ratio to people.


Had a wonderful week staying in this hostel. Staff were friendly, great location under 10 minute walk to Bondi beach and close to bus stops into the city. Facilities were decent, kitchen is a bit small but large dining area and terrace where they had a nice BBQ on the Friday. Room was clean a cool enough. Would recommend staying here


Very nice place! People very welcoming, rooms a little small but still can deal with it. Would go back any time! ( Of course, don't expect it to be a 4 and a half star hotel ) there are many backpackers partying, but still in respect. Could sleep peacefully when I wanted to! Enjoy your stay :)

The bed and linen did not smell clean or fresh..


The staffs in the front desk were friendly. The private room we stayed in third floor was clean and good. But there was only one common bathroom/toilet in this floor. And this common bathroom was not clean.


The bathrooms were definitely not the cleanest I've been in


Far from the city centre, dificult transport, mainly at night. Staff not so helpfull Durty bathrooms
