We stayed in a private room with ensuite bathroom for one night in the beginning of January 2015. The room was crampy, very hot and not properly cleaned. The pillow cases smelt like they had been slept on and the shower was covered in hairs. Definitely not worth the AUD 90 something we were charged. The hostel itself had a... More

Living in Sydney, came up for a week holiday. Great friendly and helpful staff! Hostel very clean. Great games room and a pool. Close to the town. Was my 2nd time there and I am sure it won't be my last.

I loved this hostel. I was travelling on my own, and it was my favourite hostel which I stated in while I was in Australia. The staff are nice and it was a really sociable hostel. Wish I stayed longer. It was also really close to the Greyhound bus pickup.

Stayed in a single room for one week which was great. House style. Great bathroom & room. When moving to shared dorms I was mainly less than impressed. The set up is pretty cool with little houses with about 6 rooms in them each sleeping around 6 people but one girl bathroom and one male bathroom. It doesn't really work... More

Nice, clean rooms and friendly staff! It was the best hostel so far! It's not far away from the beach and supermarket. The kitchen is nice and very clean, the toilets and showers where very clean as well. The staff was very friendly. The hostel has a nice pool and you can even rent a bike for only 5 dollars... More

This hostel is a wonderful hostel with great outdoor seating which is undercover, a big kitchen and dining room and a really cool parrot to keep you company. The manager and staff are always around to give you advice on what to do, where to go and to book tours for you. It has one of the cleanest kitchens I... More
