Value for money is not good. Way too expensive compared to what you actually get. Nice staff and people, but I expected way more! The location is really good, so there's huge potential here. Kitchen was dirty, full of cockroaches and poorly equipped. Where's the knives? Bathroom was ok, but still kinda dirty. Ok hostel, but considering the price; not good.


Not as good as the last time i stopped here but still a very good hostel(i should have stopped longer)!


Cold and dirty showers. Most uncomfortable beds ever! Dingy place altogether. Staff however we're very pleasant and helpful and it was in a good location.


Positive: Very close to Manly beach, great location. Nice terrasse, very clean and nice bathrooms, drying racks for laundry. BUT: The Manager is cold and unfriendly. Price per night is really expensive. Wifi, plates cutlery and towels are considered as EXTRAS and NOT INCLUDED in the price. You even need to pay to attend any of the social events. Lots of long-stay people not necessarily sociable. Cockroaches in the corridors, kitchen, common areas. Only 1computer on 3 working. NO FREE BIKES
