    Our stay here was one of the best stays we have had in Australia. Marco, Andy and all of the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. Very friendly atmosphere and super close to the beach and restaurants. Would definitely recommend! 🙂

    Staff were amazing and helpful. They went beyond by helping my friend and I. I highly recommend to stay long and short term. The location was right next to the beach and supermarket and bus stops

    Very clean, quite, excellent staff. The deposit required for dishes means that the kitchen stays clean, and the no alcohol/party rules are enforced, so there's not too much noise at night. I stayed here while looking for an apartment, and loved the peace and quite. Thanks guys!

    I have had an absolutely amazing stay at this hostel! The staff are extremely friendly and very helpful, they’re are always looking out for their guests. The rooms are cleaned daily and are very spacious. Excellent atmosphere, very easy to socialize and meet other travelers/residents. I would definitely stay here again!

    It’s a bad sign when the person responsible for cleaning the place, complains about how gross the place is. Majority of guests were long term, but very friendly. No lockers anywhere. Lots of cockroaches in the backyard and kitchen at night, but didn’t have any in the room. Bring earplugs cause people get home late and someone was up at 5-6am every morning. The doors closing and the footsteps will wake most people up. But lots of food options and the beach are very close.

    Good location, friendly and helpful staff that went out of their way to assist me. However the good ends there. Toilets were out of toilet paper for a couple of days The only thing you could call a common area is a table in the backyard. I wouldn't say clean, but I wouldn't say filthy. I had a private room, the window has to be open because there's no aircon, so for security theres some of that flimsy wooden garden lattice. There was a fan in my room though. Won't stay again.

    Never left a hostel early, but this is the exception. Not sure why it's rated or priced so high. The vibe isn't there, it's filthy & worn & full of long-termers who don't have any consideration for other guests. The 1 and only night I stayed there I was woken by a long-termer drunkenly shouting. Another guest and the night staff confronted him about it and then they all broke out into a fight – which I then had to help break-up. Not offered a refund – appalling. Stay at WakeUp in Bondi instead.

    Absolute nightmare 2 nights here. I stayed because of reviews saying it was a quiet working hostel. Not really the fault of staff but the disgusting, ignorant pricks staying in my room made my stay hell. Woken up at 4 am for the 2 nights with lights on, loud talking and laughing. No consideration at all. Room was a complete mess, hardly anywhere to put my stuff and no lockers either. I couldn't wait to get out of the place.
