We have just finished a 5 month trip of SE Asia and landed in Sydney staying in Sydney Central for 3 nights........the hostel in Sydney Central was ok but in comparison with Surfside it was a dump! Surfside is the best hostel that we have stayed in! I do not understand how people mention negative comments towards this place! easy access to skateboards, surfboards, bodyboards, table tennis, a basketball court in the garden, a TV room and a great atmosphere! Gutted we had to leave!!!

You have to pay for wi-fi which is one of the most bizarre things i've ever heard of and the toilets are an absolute disaster.

The hostel should have been good, considering the location and bulding. However on arrival hidden in the small print they take $3 of your deposit for sheets, which personally I think is bullshit as we only found out after committing a deposit on hostel world (we chose it based on the price). All the kitchen stuff was pretty grim and the "clean" cutlery was covered in ants... It was a shame as with better management could have been really good.
