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.

I spend a week in this hostel with my girlfriend, we book a private room with double bed it was the same price as a 8 dorm room in Sydney. So a very good deal for a private room. The room was quite. There is a kitchen area that seems clean but that we didn't use. The common area

Good clean hostel. Really nice staff. Got a free night from picking up a Manly brochure in town (winner). Have to pay a big deposit and an extra deposit for kitchen bits (plates, cutlery etc) but refunded on checking. Very sociable and very close to town. A much better choice

Lived at manly backpackers for over 2 months, and absolutely loved it. The hostel no longer became just a bed to stay in but truly became my home. I was able to find work so easily and made the most amazing friends with whom I'm still traveling with. Would highly recommend ! <3
