* 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 goes

    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! 🙂

    Idk nothing about something, but these here pods are kinda neat. I like the privacy aspect, it would be even better if each pod was a private room with a bathroom and stuff like a hobbit micro thingy me jig. Kinda sux you have to be mindful of ppl next to you. The no alcohol rule sux balls, I'm not 16. And the outdoor area rules also sux d**k. An anti social hostel.

    The pictures don’t accurately reflect the environment. Lots of clutter and terrible smelling rooms. My pod didn’t have power to the outlets

    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.

    Was notified at 8pm on the final night that a + Covid case was at the hostel. I had left the hostel at 8am and was just walking to the hostel at the time I got the message. Didn’t feel comfortable to stay the evening as I would have been exposed for a further 14 hrs. I asked if I could receive a refund for my final night given the health and safety risk, and the fact I hadn’t been at the hostel since early morning. They refused, said my point was valid but they are running a business. 0/10

    It’s a budget hostel, I get that. But it doesn’t mean that things can be out of use. Things that were broken and unusable/disfunctional: the locking mechanism for my locker just didn’t work, the only sink in the male toilets was out of use, the locks on the shower were not functional, no heating in the bottom floor bedrooms, so it’s absolutely freezing in the winter. The place has some really odd uncomfortable smells throughout the building, damp, open pipe smell, cheesey damp in the room.
