    The first nice thing to mention is that - as a couple - you have the option to get a double bed in a dorm. Unfortunately the downside about our dorm was that it was inhabited by very messy people, the smell was awful! A...More

    I could meet good people from every different countries and had good times here. The location is perfect, they have a job centre where you can find a job, or work here in the hostel if wanted. I will miss the place!

    The hostel is simple and perhaps could do with a little modernising but for the duration of my stay has been clean and generally tidy - there are people cleaning/tidying every few hours it seems! It's a great place to stay if you're a backpacker...More

    Manly
    A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
    you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
    here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
    day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
    a great way to experience Sydney Harbor Bay and the
    Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
    plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
    cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
