The hostel is an extra 5 minute walk up Pittwater road out of Manly and even if your carrying a large bag/backpacks etc it is well worth the extra stroll! Its quieter without losing the feel of a hostel, you can still enjoy drinks in the garden area or common area without it being a party hostel, which is what I was looking for! Everything is cleaned daily (kitchen, bathrooms, TV area, hallways) the Staff are great and it is very safe to leave any belongings due to good lockers and staff always around!
I stayed for three weeks, while searching for permanent accommodation the area and the dutch influence at the place was great and every week a new group came in of around 20, as there is a Dutch backpackers association in the patio/courtyard area! I shared a four bed room each week with dutch and Swedish travellers and enjoyed it immensely and even though I was working all day I came home and joined in there antics some evenings!
Kitchen area is great with everything you need and they give you your own cutlery and crockery to keep for the week!
overall I recommend highly
