Some More Useful Information

*Bondi Beach Backpackers will require a $100 security deposit from each reservation based on 1 or 2 guests. if you are 3 or more guests our bond is $50 per person. We usually debit this from the card on the reservation on the morning of your arrival so we can leave keys in key safe for you in case you arrive outside of hours. Bondi Beach Backpackers will also require Identification and credit/debit card details from each guest at check in.
* Bondi Beach Backpackers has a minimum fee of $1 per day that we charge every guest from the security deposit required at check in.
This enables us to give you a number of services and facilities that many other places charges extra for. This includes our NBN Wi-Fi with no time or data restrictions. It also includes unlimited use of surfboards, body boards and some skateboards as well as sun cream plus the Monday and Thursday plus multiple vouchers for local food, drink, retail stores and tourist locations.

** Bondi Beach Backpackers offers FREE parking, but we DON’T have a car park.
**The parking we have is street parking. You can park directly out the front of Bondi Beach Backpackers from 9pm to 8am for FREE, however there is a meter charge from 8am to 9pm. We do help with 24-hour free parking in local street but it’s a 5-10 walk depending on which street and availability.
*Parking is plentiful up until approx. 6-7pm when it gets a little harder as residents return from work.
*We have maps to help you locate FREE 24-hour parking. We recommend that you park out front for enough time to check in, collect a map and then park your vehicle. It's much harder to park, walk with bags and then check in.

Really good atmosphere and great people! Worth the money already for the location and it is hostel life so do not be too picky on cleanliness. I thought they double charged me on the deposit you pay by the website etc, but I got a generous refund for one night anyway cause I had to move spontaniously . The room was double booked so I got a refund and a free breakfast !! The staff is doing everything in there power to make your stay as good as possible.

The Hostel was quite sociable for one which was a bit smaller than some we have stayed in. The kitchen was small but had everything we needed. We had 9 people in our room which got very hot and very quickly as there was no air con working.

Hostel has a lot of potential but let down due to the guy in charge. To put things bluntly he was very rude towards guests and staff. He’s money grabbing and keeps a hold of your passport and threatens to charge your card. When he told me to “control my man” made us very uncomfortable. The hostel had great facilities such as surf boards and skate boards but due to the manager we found ourselves avoiding renting these as it always came with an extra problem. Showers don’t lock.
