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

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.

The good points - the location was spot on, just a 5 minute stroll and your on Bondi beach. A very nice area full of restaurants, cafes and bars. The bad points - I stayed in a twin room which was very basic & pretty dirty. The bed was the worst bed I have ever slept in, the mattress was... More

We have been travelling down the east coast and have stayed in many hostels (most have been cheaper than this) but this is by far the worst hostel I have experienced!! The state of the room is disgusting - dirty bed sheets, unclean sink and fridge, our feet were completely back within minutes of walking on the floor! Nearly every... More

The hostel gave us a good weekly rate which was better than anything else in sydney . We were expecting it to be quite bad for the price we paid but it was lovely. We had our own microwave, sink, fridge and tv. Only bad thing was I had to share a double bed with my friend . It's close... More

When I first walked into this place, I already thought about all the bad things I might be telling TripAdvisor. When I checked out, my opinion had changed. This place offers stuff other hostels definitely would not, and it costs much less! The location absolutely cannot be beat. We had a private double room (a bunk bed) which was incredibly... More
