It's a really cozy hostel with a great courtyard and rooftop terrace! Only 5-10 minute walk to Bondi Beach. A few bathrooms for that many people, but the rest makes up for it! Had a really good time here and I will stay here again when I return to Sydney!


We stayed in a private room which was very big but with a bunk bed and practically no furnishings at all. It was very loud so we had to wear earplugs every night as well as an eye mask to block out the light. The other guests were not rowdy apart from one night but it was mainly due to the single glazing windows. Womens bathrooms were clean but mens not so much. Good location for us as it was out the way but others may find it not central enough.


Shower each floor only 2cubical, hv to wait long for peak hour.


Nice hostel a 10 min walk from bondi beach. Rooms n bathrooms very clean and staff were great.


good facillities. good place to stay in. a bit expensive. wifi is not free.


This hostel is so dirty. Everythings covered in dust. Bathrooms are vile, stunk of mould and the water leaks everywhere which is dangerous. Hardly any activities for solo travellers. They easily could hold a quiz night. Helpful receptionist let me check in at 8am unfortunately was in a room was a crazy lady who found it acceptable to shake me awake! Was supposed to stay here 7 nights, lasted 4 and even that was too much.


The bald bloke who works the front desk is a bit creepy with the girls and hostile toward guys who hang out with them.

8 Cockroaches in the room!! When I asked for help the blonde manager was very helpful, however more kept appearing and when requesting a room changed was advised it was not possible.At checkout I advised the dark haired 'manager' the situation she was abrupt and stated 'welcome to Australia' no apology!! You have to rent your cutlery, plates etc which is added pain on top of the fact that my food was stolen from the fridge in less then 24 hours!! Bathrooms generally dirty, hair in sinks etc!


Very clean, friendly hostel with good facilities. Staff were great. No complaints whatsoever.


Amazing hostel. The staff is great, the washrooms are clean and the socializing is awesome. There's a central court where everyone hangs out, makes meeting people very easy.

Clean, quite and not to far from the beach


The only negative thing about this place is that you had to pay for wifi and it didn't always work. Everything else was great, it was clean, good location and staff were nice

If you are unlucky and get a room downstairs next to the court-yard you will have non stop noise until at least 22h00. But other than that, the youthhostel and it's atmosphere is very nice.

Nice and quiet neighborhood . Hotel very close to the beach. Cleaning could be better


The cleanest hostel I stayed in in Oz. Very good facilities and rental options. You have to pay for your wifi of course but at least its working not like in other hostels. There are even mirrors in the rooms! Amazing view from the top deck on the coast. 5-10 min walk to Bondi. Supermarkets bit further away.


Over priced. Rude staff. They take your goon


AWESOME LOCATION! Short walk to Bondi Beach and the great surf culture/nightlife there. :)


I could not figure out how there are any bad reviews on this place. So big, clean, welcoming and the roof top view and location is a HUGE cherry on top. We paid for a 6 bed dorm and got put into a 4 bed for no extra charge. Everything was so clean - rooms, bathrooms, etc. I only stayed here two nights and am still kicking myself for not staying longer. Staff were so friendly and helpful, especially Edwin. So great with helping us map out bus routes and finding our way around. DEF WOULD RETURN!!


Staff attitude is kind of "please do not bother me". Its also very annoying the hostel is trying to make money out of everything (selling toothpaste, water, wi fi) Given the price I would expect some all these things to be included


Strange rule with no cutlery, plates, cups in the kitchen but they rent it out. So everybody keeps running around with everything. Washing and drying is ridiculously expensive with 4$ each and washing only 30 min (only 2 machines each). The rooftop terrace is great though and I recommend the coastal walk to Cogee.
