Basic, decent hostel. Free wifi in the dining room only. Many of the people who live here are longterm workers and lots of families - babies/kids at a hostel - so not much for partying. Its a bit of a walk from Bondi beach but very doable. Staff should offer directions upon checkin!

Not sure why this hostel gets such good reviews to be honest. Clicky atmosphere, abrupt staff and very noisy. We were kept awake until 5am on a Sunday morning by disrespectful guests banging on the room doors and the live-in staff seemed to do nothing about it. The best thing about the hostel is the views from the balcony, but nobody seems to hang around there. Expected better from a YHA and glad I moved to an alternative in Bondi.


Good beach hostel. The showers were kind of far away. Hard to keep things clean and dry, but that's to be expected by the beach.


Good location by the beach and the coastal walk. Lockers, breakfast, and pretty clean. Kitchen common area isn't great for meeting people though and you'll have to walk a ways to get to the grocery stores. Still a pretty cushy stay overall!


Very nice place to stay. Short walk to the beach and the hostel itself is pretty nice. Good value and I would come back if I'm in bondi!


Very social hostel! Staying for only two nights in a hostel usually means that you dont really make such good friends, but this one was different! Very friendly and openmimned people. Really appreciated this!

I arrived by car so it was great that there was free off street parking close by! Very good location if you prefer to stay close to the beach and not too far away from the city centre. I asked the reception how far it was by bus to the centre and they said 20 min and was actually 40 min by express bus. Loved the tv room, Magic Mike!! Would definitely come back here.


Only stayed for one night so can't say much. Nice and clean hostel, not too expensive. Our room was a bit smelly but not sure if it was the hostel or the stuff my roommates had.
