After a hideous experience in Bondi, we were thrilled to arrive at this yha. The resident were more mature and respectful, the lounge was full of people quietly reading or chatting and the kitchen was spotless. Our 4 bed dorm was nice, I even had a single bed in a slightly separate annex to the main room. The showers and toilets were immaculate and plentiful.
The only downside: 100 tiny children staying on a school trip. Cute at 6pm, not so cute when running around late at night and first thing in the morning. Hostel staff and the teachers were powerless, I don't think they should accept children as young as these (approx 7 years old).
