    I had an amazing stay at mad monkeys on broadway! It’s well located next to a park and the broadway shopping centre and also not far from the central station. The hostel offers a familiar atmosphere and the staff is really friendly, so that everybody feels welcome. Also the rooms, bathrooms, common area or any other facilities are very clean and tidy. I’d definitely go back to this hostel if I come back to Sydney again!

They also host some great nights such as free pasta and free nachos and a bbq on Saturdays! It’s a great place to stay and brilliant value for money

    I’ve ended up at Mad Monkey twice, once i stayed for over a month because the vibe was so good and the place felt safe, clean, and familiar. The kind of hostel where you meet lifelong friends. Kerry is incredible and will always do her best to make you feel welcome and to make your stay as happy and comfortable as possible. Her staff is similarly great. Would and probably will be back in a heartbeat.

    Was a weird time to be in a hostel cos of the corona scare stuff, lots of long termers so felt a bit cliquey. My room was tiny, luckily it was never full so was manageable but we could barely move around just the 2 of us. Showers were decent, could’ve done with more hand soap in the bathrooms, especially given the circumstances at the time but other than that no complaints. Location was decent, not exactly central but easy enough to get everywhere by public transport

    The size of the common areas is very disappointing. Tiny kitchen, tiny dining room and the movie room doubles up as a cramped laundry room so subtitles are a must. My room smelled like a regrettable mix of damp furniture and flavoured vapour. Having more Uber eats delivery bags than guests, it seemed to be a long term hostel without the perks of a long term hostel. Disappointing stay. Definitely better value elsewhere in Sydney.
