This was one of the better hostels we stayed in while in Sydney in the summer, it was very close to the beach which was the best part about it, the rooms were fairly clean we had a 4 person room which was a nice change from Sydney's usual 12-16 per room. The only real negative part was how hot... More

Although, ideally located at few steps from the popular beach, hotel itself was terrible , with rooms small , cramped smelly and linen very old. I had arrived from Canberra late in the night so had to stay any way other wise could have cancelled it. Check its reviews at hostel-booking, they are not also good. Always look at the... More

I'm not a backpacker so I can't really compare this hostel to others around Oz, but I'm happy our stay was just a 1 night stay. Room was pretty dirty, so dirty that I preferred to use our own bedding, just to be safe. Toilets look like a caravan's toilet. I wouldn't suggest to have a shower there. Pretty noisy... More

This hostel is one of the cleanest I've ever stayed in. The staff are really good, friendly and informative. It's laid back and pretty quiet. It's really close to the beach and the busses to bondi junction and elizabeth street. I'd definitely recommend!

Stayed in a twin room with my cousin for 5 nights and the place is in a pretty poor state. On the plus side, it's in a great location in that it's close to the beach as well as decent bars and eateries. After that it goes downhill. The floor is filthy, the mattress was very thin, the staff aren't... More

Very close to the beach in a quiet location, which is great. The hostel itself is in a desperate state of an upgrade! The rooms were in a poor state of cleanliness and the sheets looked like they could use replacing. Bathrooms tiny and only one per floor, so there is room for improvement there too. The fire alarm went... More

I don't know what those negative reviews are talking about, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Lamrock. I had a tiny private room for $49 AUD, with shared bath a few steps away. Reasonably clean; don't worry. VERY quiet. Because of the mixed reviews, initially I only booked one night, but stayed eight thanks to Laurie the receptionist working some... More

We had a booked a double room here for 2 nights and after some confusion with airport transfers the kind receptionist upgraded us to a better double with en-suite. The room was clean and well ventilated. There was not really a communal area in the hostel and the kitchen was extremely basic, most people seemed to not use it. Locaion... More

Sadly it is clear that the owners do not put much of their profits back into the hostel. Family owned and operated (it seems), the staff are friendly enough. They do clean the bathrooms daily but the rooms are in desperate need of an upgrade, as they are generally dirty and shabby. TV and mini-fridge in room, towels are free... More
