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

The reviews of this hostel don't do it justice. When you pay for budget accommodation, you should expect budget accommodation. When travelling you need to have a sense of awareness that when you're on a budget you're not going to get the Ritz. The staff were pleasant, there was a little confusion about airport transfers, but the lady at reception... More

As budget accommodation generally goes, The Lamrock Lodge is an ideal choice and a fantastic location literally across the road from the iconic Bondi beach and all it has to offer...... If you are a student traveller on a limited budget it's the perfect choice..... Also suited to the more mature too as they offer more private accommodation..... Laura seems... More

Lamrock Hostel provides clain rooms, many bathrooms, included showers in seperate rooms. It has laundry and kitchen, but no public area.

I did not last 24 hours in this Pitt. I do not expect luxury especially in a hostel but I expect a cleanliness. The room was filthy and disgustingly hot. The fan only moved warm air around. There was supposed to be a TV, fridge sink and wardrobe. There was no sink, no wardrobe (only a couple of shelves. the... More

We stayed at Lamrock Lodge for 3 months and out of all of the hostels we have been to, this was one of the best. Excellent value for money. Liked the fact we had our own room with television, fridge, sink and wardrobe. All the staff were very welcoming and available 24 hours at reception. It's in the best location... More
