generaly the hostel was ok. computers/internet failed many times. one of the male toilets was blocked the whole time i was there. 3 occupants of my room were very messy and smelly. the staff were very good with respect to my car security and letting me get it out early. it suited my needs, i would not stay there again though.


Great location but not much else was very impressive

Manly Backpackers has a good localization and kindly staff but the cleanness is not so good.


Manly Backpackers is located right next to the beach, which is a HUGE plus! Few coakroaches running around in the room and no air-con made the stay a little less comfortable. Also there was a weird smell in the corridor next to the kitchen... They got a new cold room during my stay, looked better than the old fridges! Also in the kitchen little coakroaches every time one had a dinner there. Quite alright for a hostel, if one is not too picky :-)
