    Nice place to stay in Manly, near the beach and the shops ! Thanks to COVID, I was alone in my dorm for my first night and only one other person on my second! Place was clean, owners were really nice and helpful! Parking around is a bit difficult tho! Be ready to walk a little or pay for parking ! I would definitely stay there again 😊😊

    Hands down the best hostel in Manly! Such a chill vibe with great people and staff that really want you to enjoy your stay. If you’re looking for a crazy hostel - maybe choose a different one. But if you want to meet great people, have a good time and feel like you’ve got a home in Manly - this is the place to come. Had such a great few weeks here and will definitely come back to this place whenever we’re in Manly.

    Fantastic place that I was sad to leave! Great staff and residents, many working in Manly so it’s very easy to meet people. Quick walk to the beach where surf boards can be rented or lessons taken; 10-min walk to Coles and bars/clubs so it’s very quiet around the house. There are a lot of rules which can be a pain sometimes, but they make for a great stay in the long run (common room closed between 10-1030pm was the biggest one) Highly recommend if looking to chill out; not if wanting to party

    I liked this place and would stay again. It's a bit of a walk from the main area of Manly Beach though; 20 minutes to the nearest bigger grocery store. Staff were great and caring. I didn't like that you were given limited dishes to use - 1cup, 1plate, and utensils. Was really limiting when trying to eat and annoying to always bring it with you. But, as the kitchen is small I guess it is the only way. The long term people here are a bit messy in the rooms :(.

    Great stay overall. Just a few things like mushrooms growing in the shower, and overall cleanliness. I’d definitely go back providing I wouldn’t find anything else wrong with it. The overall stay definitely made me overlook the mushrooms though!

    The staff is a joke. While I was checking in they kept answering their cell phone for obvious personal calls. Fine, you own the joint but don’t ask a customer if they want information then continue to interrupt to answer and hang up for your personal calls. The first room I was in was absolutely disgusting. They moved me to another one because I complained. I usually never do, but this place was bad...More people are living there then passing through. I would just avoid this place like the plague.

    A hostel with a good location. The kitchen was absolutely filthy, lot of flies, the sink was blocked and full of dishes. The staff didn’t seem to care. One guy who was working there was acting really aggressively and swearing on his own. He was also really drunk. Felt really unsafe over there.

    The moment I arrived I was ‘upgraded’ from a door room to a 2 bed private dorm.Turns out I was sharing a room with a 40 year old homeless man who pays for his room by working as a hostel Janitor.The room for which I was supposed to stay was very dirty and always unlocked as this guy just left his key in the door.I was denied a switch back to a dorm as they had booked out my bed.I was afraid to sleep there so I left and was denied any money back.Online pictures are deceiving as it is now rundown.
