    Great location - just steps from the beach and groceries Awesome staff - friendly, welcoming & helpful Good facilities - rooftop patio, awesome common room, everything cleaned multiple times a day (besides room) Good vibes - felt more like a family than a hostel. Just say hi and the rest is effortless.

    I stopped here for one night whilst in Manly, it's a brilliant location directly looking onto Manly beach from the balcony. I felt that some of the rooms could do with a bit of TLC as the beds were a bit squeaky but you have to remember it is a hostel! I was only there for one night and saw the place being cleaned twice, people are long-stays but you get that everywhere. Hostel was v good price, very beach-vibes and full of surfers. Just needed an up-lift in the future.

    This hostel is in a great location with a nice rooftop area! The only downside was the lack of air conditioning so it was quite hot during summer but you get what you pay for, good value for money if you're on a budget.

    The Boardrider is in a great location and the staff are incredibly friendly. I wish it was a little cleaner and that the breakfast that was included was more than a piece of toast. But the location and friendliness can’t be beat.

    Pros: lovely staff and good location if you want to stay in manly. Cons: The place is dirty and run down, especially the bathroom and kitchen. Bunk beds look like they'll fall apart any second. Rubbish for solo travellers, full of long term residents who were stunningly rude and kept bringing guys into the female dorms (staff said they would deal with it). Low security as guests prop the doors open and lockers don't work. It's so expensive for what it is, you're better of staying somewhere else

    GO TO THE STOKE BEACH HOUSE. I would strongly not recommend this hostel for the expensive price I expected much more from it. It is like walking into a dirty smelly adolescents bedroom and the toilet and shower facilities are disgusting. There was one staff member who was friendly but the others were damn right rude and obnoxious not being able to help with the simplest of questions.

    This Hostel is terrible. Full of people who do d*** all day and tell you off if you do something that is against their way. Dirty, unfriendly staff and expensive.
