    Love Mad Monkey Coogee! We arrived a month ago and left Sydney for a few weeks, then returned again to the hostel once we came back to Sydney. Can’t stay away! Staff is always friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend staying here if you’re heading to Sydney, to stay out of the hustle and bustle in the CBD. The environment is so lovely, and the buss stop is right outside the hostel!

    Amazing people staying there and great location. However there were not lockers which I could use in my room and I did wake up to a dead cockroach outside my dorm room.

    Really enjoyed having the restaurant/bar in the building. Most of the women in my room knew each other (long term residents/living/working there) which made it harder to make friends. Quite loud in the evenings as McDonalds/pubs are so close. My upper bunk bed had no nearby plug meaning I had to go to communal areas to charge my phone. Not the cleanest bathroom but practical place to be, staff were friendly. Potential for social events. Incredible location on the beach. Good basic breakfast.

    A hip vibe for a hostel loved how close it was to the beach. The guests did not respect the quiet hours or policy rules and made the stay uncomfortable. Wish there was 24-hour staff on site. But they were very accommodating when we needed to check out earlier than agreed to.

    I stayed in the 4-bed all female dorm. Pros: *Great location in front of the beach. *Some nice staff Cons: *Rude dutch lady with curly hair working there. *Our dorm had 4 beds and one bed was twice as big as the others yet we all paid the same price so it's unfair. *I had a top bunk bed and there was no proper ladder to get up. *Theres a balcony in front full of loud annoying 18 year old germans & brit guests being loud til 2 am and disrespectful. Could not sleep *Basic bathrooms & too small

    I stayed In a 10 bed room which are not pictured in these photos - and look nothing like the photos in here. Unwarned about the large amount of stairs and no air con. The rooms were not pleasant to be in and the bunk beds did not have ladders or bars on the top to stop people rolling off. The female bathrooms left me feeling dirtier after showering than before. That being said there was a lovely common room and kitchen area with a nice calm atmosphere which was enjoyable.
