Very friendly and helpful staff, fantastic location next to the beach. All facilities provided for a comfortable stay.
The hardest working staff except management you'll find. the clientele makes this place like hell at night and could be an asylum for insomniacs. if you like the out of control lifestyle, this is your Mecca. weekends are the best time to experience the street noise in addition to the resident hooligans, which make the english soccer fans blush.
Top location, friendly, clean, massive TV. Fair share of experiences in hostels around the world, and for Australian standards for me it did not meet requirements, very disappointed in the dorm rooms particularly the bunk beds no railing on the top to stop you rolling over, no ladder to climb up, very flimsy and wobbly. After having a family member die from a bunk bed accident, it's a big shock to me. For the money you pay I expect better. Mostly long termers.
Nice friendly vibe with quite a few long termers. Amazing location. Would stay again :)
Large kitchen and common room, sufficient showers, toilets and breakfast. Cleanliness was fine and this hostel was better than any in bondi beach area. Arrived out of office hours and key left on side luckily untouched (but don't see what another option would have been however). Great location to beach.
Good location and ok size rooms. No aircon meant that even though there were only 4 of us in the room it was really hot and stuffy. Coogee is a great place to stay..but the most expensive hostel I have stayed at..cause I stayed for New Years. Just didnt feel the price reflected the standard of the place.
Wifi package is not very good. Other places would be free or unlimited for much less.
It was a great place to stay. Very clean and comfortable. Close to the beach and walking distance to everything. Met some very nice people while staying there too.

We had difficulty finding this hostel as we arrived after hours, the voicemail didn't provide the after hours number so this resulted in us having to stay elsewhere the first night of our stay. The room we had was great although the tv reception went after the second day. The breakfast although basic was a welcome addition and the kitchen was spotless ( must invest in some butter knives tho...none at all as far as I could se). Also a few of the showers were out of order and no soap in the sinks.
Loud doors that slam and at times annoying for when trying to fall asleep..Location is awesome! Nice showers and kitchen.
Staff were rude, tried to overcharge me for key deposit. Other guests were extremely noisy at night, not a friendly vibe at all.
Internet expensive. Near Coogee beach, great with good weather. Reception was often not staffed.
Really helpful staff. Hooked me up with a free hire surfboard for the day which was cool. Nice location in eastern suburbs
Staff are truly awesome. Wifi is not free at all and adds up fast. Even a small amount of wifi should come with the room. The place is clean though and quiet after ten pm. Location is close to the beach and shopping/food etc.
The area is perfect for relaxing, running, walking on the beach or surfing. The staff were very friendly and help you in questions about moving around Sydney.
