A bit removed from the city center, but excellent facilities and the staff was helpful.
Outside of the fact that the room smelled like a petting zoo and the snoring, overall good place.
Solid, relatively quiet place to stay for a decent price. A lot of long-term stayers doing their thing but nice enough.
Costs a little more than some of the other hostels in the area but the people are respectful and you know that the quality of service will be good.
Great place to stay in Katoomba. 15 minutes walk to the entrance of the park. Quiet and comfortable after a long day of hiking! Only drawback is the staff is often on call, not actually on the property, so you have to wait for them to come from some other location.
I was actually moved to Cogee Surfsiders because of overbooking at Bondi. I made it last minute over a holiday weekend so i was happy to have a bed. Great location. Staff was helpful, beds are terrible. A couple good drinks put you to sleep on them though. Outside of the odd Brit getting smashed, acting up, shouting, and slamming doors, the place was good enough.
Great location. Hostel facilities are decent enough. It literally becomes a night club on the 2nd floor on Friday and Saturday so don't stay there if you're looking to get a good sleep over the weekend. Unfortunately, you don't always get to pick your roommates. In a room if 18, at least 15 from the UK that are working in Sydney so they were not particularly respectful of those that were backpacking. Allowing non-paying friends to sleep all over the floor and in any bed they could find. BS!
Good location, staff was helpful and good if you want to get a hood night's sleep.
Great location. Easy to check in and staff was helpful and courteous. Definitely value for the price.
