I liked the hostel because the staff were really nice. The hostel itself - extremely noisy until 3am. Bar downstairs opens until 2.30am, people tend to linger and cheer on until 3am. 1 key system for every room doesn't make sense. Fan might actually be a good idea since windows needs to be shut from the noise. Okay good stuff, Ronan and the other lady who sort of extra night for me - kudos to you both! Free drink voucher - that's very nice.
Tiago, the nice Rumanian receptionist girl and Skye, you guys were awesome! I only had a day there due to my own bad planning so I went up to them and asked what could I do and straight away Tiago picked up the phone, called the kayak company to ask if there was vacancy for 1 more person and Skye strongly encouraged Booze Cruise right after. They got everything arranged within 10 mins! Very efficient! Oh and go down to Bondi restaurant which is next to Cloud9 for breakfast and burgers! Must do!
No curtains to cut off lights, no hot shower, found dead bugs on one of the bed, no fan. Opened the blacony door but bar downstairs was quite noisy. Staff was pleasant.
I never given a full excellent but LLH really exceeds its expectations! Tips: take on Anthonio's walking tour, very insightful, he's funny and knows the history at the back of his hand. Then take on his culinary skill in the evening, fabulous food, worth the $. Later on join them for Fado night! Great fun! All the staff were very friendly and always ready to help or for a chat
Staff are all very friendly! Say hi to Geertje, Sheyda, Lucianno and Martin if you're staying with them! They are approachable, friendly and nice to hang out with. More bathroom and more plugs will make it even homely!
There wasn't air con or fan in my room (8) so you either have to open the window for air or shut close off the noise. It does get very noisy at night. Male staff in the evening had a attitude problem when I approach him about some payment confusion. He said I didn't understand English
Could do with hangers or tiny personal space for every bed. At least that's what I didn't get in room 1. Bathroom was quite dirty and slippery of soap residue. But crew was great!
