    Had a great stay at surfside, so good I kept extending my stay. It's so close to the beach and nightlife. The staff are very helpful especially if you need help setting yourself up for a working visa stay. For $3 dollars you get access to 2 free dinners, breakfast, surfboards, skates, table tennis, ect. You also get discount at so many local businesses which is ideal on a travellers budget. The other guests are really friendly so it's ideal for a solo traveller like myself.

    Staying here is a MUST!! Stayed here before we started our east coast trip and after we got back to Sydney from New Zealand. I have never stayed in a more welcoming, sociable hostel. Great atmosphere throughout and you can even BYO which is very rare in Australia. Myself and another traveller booked an airport shuttle which was cheap, however it was fully booked so the hostel manager, Richard offered us a lift in his car which was extremely helpful! Would I stay here again? YES!!!!

    Nice place, everything was pretty good. but before you book, know that the price is actually $3 higher than listed because they make you pay an extra $3 to use the facilities or whatever... pretty sneaky. Also the breakfast includes cereal but no milk, so if you want that you'll have to buy it.

    Basic things that I expected to be there such as towels and curtains for privacy weren’t. There aren’t lockers in the rooms however everyone is so trustworthy this isn’t a big issue. The atmosphere is amazing and after 4 days there I already feel like part of the surfside family

    Ended up extending twice so I was here for 3 weeks in total. Location is perfect, good transport links and the vibe is perfect for Bondi! Only criticisms is that there is nowhere to unpack and put your stuff and it could 've cleaner. Other than that, great hostel!

    Toilets and showers are not very clean. Broken locks on shower doors. Great location. Free surfboards are handy.

    The hostel is alright, nice atmosphere and good location. The problem is the staff; he’s very unfriendly and keeps track of everyone’s moves. He charged my friend a 100$ for standing on a table?!!? And dont be fooled; the price on website is only for the nights you book online. If you wish to extend you pay almost double?!? And ur not allowed to book through website again.... deceiving

    Lad was a con artist paid $50 for a room key and only got $47 back. Very basic hostel but was still a good laugh. Good atmosphere as most people there were more or less permanent residents. Made some good memories but not really a very good hostel.

    Only stay here if you are a major partier. The bathrooms were disgusting and the bedrooms air conditioning wasn’t working. People partied until 430 in the morning downstairs. Would not recommend. Left early and switch to another hostel because we hated this one.
