Me and a few friends stayed at Lamrock for nearly a month Annan found it did exactly what it said on the tin - cheap, cheerful and basic but such a close location to the beach! I've seen a few other reviews stating how awful they found it, I don't know if we were just lucky or got a good... More

Granted this place isn't going to win any awards for it's staff anytime soon but we got a private bedroom with quite a comfy bed and TV for about $45 dollars a night over the internet. The showers were nice and warm and it's so close to Bondi beach. I do agree with other reviewers about the blankets, the 2... More

Only stayed here for 2 nights but it was enough. My friend had a cockroach on her pillow and was refused a new pillowcase until the next day. Showers were dirty and its quite an odd layout - bathrooms are randomly spread out across floors and I spent ages walking round trying to find a free one.The location however is... More

The lady on reception was really friendly and gave us a free upgrade to a better room as we were on a tight budget. The room was small but included a bathroom, double bed, fridge and microwave. For what we paid it was a nice place to stay and only a short walk to the beach, local restaurants and cafes.... More

Do not stay here!!! The rooms are filthy & freezing!! Bathrooms are vile & would rather wash in the sea! Kitchen area has no sense of hygiene about it ... Would 100% rather eat off the streets than use the utensils. Place should honestly be CLOSED DOWN

We are providing accommodation for thousands of people every year and it is very sad to see that only unhappy people leaving reviews.

Booked for a week but only lasted 2 days in this absolute pit of a place. There was constant drug consumption in and around the premises, the hallways have a constant smell of weed. After complaining to the incredibly rude lady on the front desk after we checked in about the awful smell she was incredibly reluctant to do anything.... More

Our experience at Lamrock Lodge was terrible from the moment we stepped through the door. The lady in the office was rude when I questioned the 2% charge to pay by australian debit card. We immediately could smell drugs coming from several of the rooms and when we told the staff, she sighed and said she would check it out.... More

This hostel is probably one of the cheapest places to stay in Sydney, and I suppose you get what you pay for in that aspect. When I arrived, before I even walked in the door, there were 3 men hanging out in the front lounge area- one asked me if I knew where he could get any weed, one appeared... More

Stayed here for three nights and will probably never return. The room and bathroom were dirty and there was constant noise from other visitors. The internet is also incredibly expensive. The only saving graces were that the staff were always friendly to us and the hotel is a short walk away from bondi beach.
