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 as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.

Hi. I think we both know that this isn't about rats, cockroaches, drugs, or the cleanliness of the hostel, but the fact that you were upset that your ice cream was taken. Being the manager, I can assure you that I am polite, I do care, and I solve a lot of problems. I just couldn't get you your ice cream back for you. But we did refund you the cost. I also offered you a refund so you could move on as you were clearly unhappy about the loss of your ice cream. You chose to stay. Making up lies about the hostel and about things that I personally said, is pretty low, and frankly ridiculous given the nature of the issue.

The location of the hostel is the best: meters away from the beach, and located in the Main Street with all the shops, restaurants and bars. It counts with free breakfast in the morning and also has a job centre where you receive lots of jobs opportunities everyday :)
