The bathrooms were pretty filthy but for the price it was fine. The rooms itself was quite small and without a ladder on the top bunk it was awkward to get in and out of bed, and would have been helpful having more electricity sockets.


Daniel, the host - is an awesome guy and always happy to help you out - in my case even with a job! The hostel is right at coogee beach and you only have to Cross the street, so it's an awesome location. Staff is friendly and will tend to your needs. Would again.

It's loud outside on the weekends but the hostel itself is pretty quiet. Rooms were a bit smelly but a lot of the people live here permanently. Great location ! Highly recommend the coastal walk to Bondi beach!


Hot water is not nearly hot enough, and the room is very cold, living there is suffering during winter time or rainly days.

Was alright, really close to the beach


Just an average hostel


Some of the guests got quite loud at early hours of the morning there should be more in place to prevent this from happening. Some staff members were beyond helpful, really went above and beyond whereas others didn't seem to be so hands on. I think wifi should be free to guests too.


No wifi. The hostel was mostly dominated by long termers and not travelers.. the vibe was not that nice and atmosphere either.. if you're up for meeting new people I'd recommend Surfsides instead..


Wi-fi was expensive and didn't last


The hostel is in a great location but aspect is poor. Needs new furniture, good painting and new sheets. Renovation in the bathrooms would be great.
