    Amazing first hostel to have stayed in here in Australia! Easy to locate and check in was simple as we landed later on in the evening. Rooms were spacious and the toilets were very clean! Showers were amazing as well. Located right on Coogee beach everything easy to find from there. Meet some amazing people here.

    Great stay, rooms could do with a fan in them though for sooky little Victorians like me. Lovely and helpful staff, great stuff. People staying there were chill, ranty euro blokes aside...but that's hostel life. Incredible location though and yeah would highly recommend.

    Good atmosphere. Met some great people. Kitchens a little on the small side for the size of the hostel but nothing that would stop me going back.

    Me and my partner had a great time staying at this hostel. Can’t beat the location! Plenty to do during the day and plenty to do during the night. Everyone in the hostel was very friendly and inviting, including the staff. There isn’t really a place to lock up your belongings so that would be the one downside. Will definitely stay again when in the Sydney area!

    the hostel was very dirty, the kitchen, the rooms, the mattresses. A girl cleaned the common spaces once a day but it wasn't enough, people leave their dirt on the table and don't wash the dishes. The rooms are too small without having space or lockers to leave your things. The location is very good, in front of the beach and near the center, if they kept it clean it would be very nice.
