We are a family-run business and pride ourselves on offering an enjoyable and comfortable stay for all our guests.
Whether you’re staying with us whilst working, travelling, on holiday or just stopping by, we offer a friendly and welcoming vibe and a ‘home from home’ experience.
To help us ensure that all our guests – including you – enjoy their time here, we ask you to respect the following guidelines.

Let’s start with the basics…
* Rent is due in advance – so have your dollar ready to secure your booking
* Treat all staff & guests respectfully – no one likes a douchebag, so just be nice, okay?!
* Our kitchen closes at 10pm – so get your food and midnight snacks prepped and cooked before
* Clean up your dishes & surfaces after cooking – we don’t want the hangry feeling to kick in for the other guests because you haven’t done your dishes! ($25 may apply if staff have to clean up your mess)
* Label your food with your name & date of check out – we like our fridges to be smelling sweet not sour, and so we do regular fridge clean outs.

Then there’s a few no gos…
* Don’t smoke inside the building (we’re a home, not a chimney and it is safety hazard)
* Don't take any drugs on the property (that includes baloons)
* Don’t drink alcohol after 10pm on the property (there’s plenty of bars nearby)
* Don’t use or go in the backyard after 10pm (our neighbours don’t like it…)
* Don’t be loud or party after 10pm (some people have to be up in the mornings)
* No visitors after 10pm, and don’t let them in your room at any time (maybe go to their place ;) )

Ps: The serious side note… any behaviour which does not align with these guidelines is subject to the owner/manager’s discretion and you will be asked to leave ( so please don’t be THAT GUEST okay! Simples!

But the great news is…
* We have high speed free WiFi ( feel free to stream as much as you like it)
* Entertinement room showing all sports channels around the world including live brodcasts and latest selection of movies for free
* There’s a huge backyard with tables, chairs and free BBQ for you to enjoy…and yoga mats if you’re feeling the need to zen – again, just keep the area clean ($25 may apply if not)

We love to have a good time too…and we look forward to sharing a beverage (or two…) with you at some point if you can keep to the above, with respect to other guests.
So now that’s done with… enjoy your stay and let us know if there’s anything you need to make your stay more comfortable. View House Rules

    Our stay here was one of the best stays we have had in Australia. Marco, Andy and all of the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. Very friendly atmosphere and super close to the beach and restaurants. Would definitely recommend! 🙂

    Very clean, quite, excellent staff. The deposit required for dishes means that the kitchen stays clean, and the no alcohol/party rules are enforced, so there's not too much noise at night. I stayed here while looking for an apartment, and loved the peace and quite. Thanks guys!

    The place was amazing, clean and well maintained. Great location. Everything at a walking distance. The staff, particularly, Marco and Rose, were really helpful and are great hosts. In all, had an amazing stay.

    I have had an absolutely amazing stay at this hostel! The staff are extremely friendly and very helpful, they’re are always looking out for their guests. The rooms are cleaned daily and are very spacious. Excellent atmosphere, very easy to socialize and meet other travelers/residents. I would definitely stay here again!

    It’s a bad sign when the person responsible for cleaning the place, complains about how gross the place is. Majority of guests were long term, but very friendly. No lockers anywhere. Lots of cockroaches in the backyard and kitchen at night, but didn’t have any in the room. Bring earplugs cause people get home late and someone was up at 5-6am every morning. The doors closing and the footsteps will wake most people up. But lots of food options and the beach are very close.

    Good location, friendly and helpful staff that went out of their way to assist me. However the good ends there. Toilets were out of toilet paper for a couple of days The only thing you could call a common area is a table in the backyard. I wouldn't say clean, but I wouldn't say filthy. I had a private room, the window has to be open because there's no aircon, so for security theres some of that flimsy wooden garden lattice. There was a fan in my room though. Won't stay again.

    Never left a hostel early, but this is the exception. Not sure why it's rated or priced so high. The vibe isn't there, it's filthy & worn & full of long-termers who don't have any consideration for other guests. The 1 and only night I stayed there I was woken by a long-termer drunkenly shouting. Another guest and the night staff confronted him about it and then they all broke out into a fight – which I then had to help break-up. Not offered a refund – appalling. Stay at WakeUp in Bondi instead.

    Absolute nightmare 2 nights here. I stayed because of reviews saying it was a quiet working hostel. Not really the fault of staff but the disgusting, ignorant pricks staying in my room made my stay hell. Woken up at 4 am for the 2 nights with lights on, loud talking and laughing. No consideration at all. Room was a complete mess, hardly anywhere to put my stuff and no lockers either. I couldn't wait to get out of the place.
