    A little pricy (I was over New Years though). Good location, nicest bathrooms. Wifi is spotty

    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 !

    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 ;-).

    Common area, toilets, staff was all great. Really good atmosphere in the common area, lots of events going on. However room was awful, no ladder to climb onto top bunk and no barrier, it was very dangerous. And cleanliness in room was poor. I wouldn’t not stay here, but be prepared to sleep holding onto the wall!

    The bed was very uncomfortable. It was thin in the middle because of the use, and it felt like sleeping on wires.
