    Great stay with helpful staff. Borrowed some snorkels and saw some fish and sharks just a 10 minute walk from the hostel. Highly recommend for the price.

    I had a single room with a double bed - the room was not 100% clean (dust and sand in some places) but the bed sheets were clean. The bed was very confortable, but the room was not at all sound proof so don't go there if you are looking for a good night of sleep. The bathroom was recently redone - super pretty and clean ! The location is amazing ! Would definitely stay there again !

    Very Good

    Great hostel and the day staff were always on hand. There were a few instances when I needed assistance from the night manager and they were not picking up their phone. Cleanliness in the rooms could do with a bit of a touch up more frequently. Kitchen facilities are top notch, the floors get quite dirty over the course of a day so make sure you're wearing flip-flops to the showers. Unfortunately, I had my phone stolen in my dorm, so make sure you store it away in the allocated lockers.

    The place was a bit of a mess, room was overtaken with peoples things, rubbish and food. But the location is good, staff were friendly and I enjoyed the tv room, plus bathrooms were really nice! Just wish the place was a bit more tidy and don’t think it’s worth how much you pay.

    My overall stay at Manly Backpackers was ok. The room and the shower facilities were clean. The bed was absolutely horrible. A lot of very young people who stay there long term. In the evenings there is always a party going on and the kitchen is well used. They have some dinner included, like half pizza or sausages. I think it is a great place if you are young and looking to meet a lot of people and are not dependent on a good night sleep ;-).

    Very, very noisy. I had to cancel as many nights of my booking as I could.

    Hostel had an outbreak of bed bugs but neglected to mention it when we checked in, found out from two girls who were staying in the same room as us. They also said they had been bitten in that room! I feel like this hostel is good if your part of the “click” if you are there for one or two nights it’s awkward and people don’t tend to talk to you! Bathrooms on the plus side were amazing! Probably the only thing about the hostel!

    Checked in pretty late. Night manager over the phone told us he would be down in 10 minutes. About 25 minutes later he finally came down. There were a number of people shouting and banging on the walls. The room itself was reminiscent of a prison cell and not worth the $38 each we spent on it for one night. There was no real atmosphere but the communal areas and bathrooms were actually very nice. Location was good, close to the beach but the experience was already ruined by this point.
