This hostel is the best in Sydney. The Bondi Beachhouse has a great atmosphere, it is clean, good kitchen facilities and a very friendly staff.
I have met many nice people who now is my friends and we had a lot of great evenings in the courtyard and dining room plus we done a lot of other great social activities.
The hostel is between the famous Bondi Beach and the small local beach Tamarama.
It is a great place to stay, as you are close to the beach and it is very easy to go into the Sydney Inner City.

Enjoyed my stay in this hostel at Bondi. Staff were ok, could have been more friendly. Good location, easy walk to the beach. Good facilities, kitchen, lounge and roof terrace. On the first nice, however, had what could only be a tramp in my room, who was up most of the night drinking, very surprised the hostel staff let the person into the hostel. Enjoyed the rest of my stay.

Stayed here for around 2 weeks last summer while working in Sydney, Great facilities and the TV rooms are great along with the roof top balcony. Ideally located beside Bondi Beach and within walking distance of Bondi Junction so easy access to the City. Would stay again, a little pricey but average Aussie prices.

I have stayed here several times - in a rooms with an en-suite and without - the ones without have some awesome views but are small, can get cold and the beds are typical backpacker - maybe on the basic side

for what they charge they should be doing more with better facilities

For a room with an en-suite you can stay in a 5 start hotel - it is not right on the beach but a short walk.

It is better than the other places but really not worth the money

Room Tip: Get the rooms with a view - it really is their saving grace but really not worth the money!

The room we had was very spacious with an ensuite and the receptionist went out of her way to move us to this room as we travelled with small children and had bad jet lag. The location is quite a big walk down to the beach and it was the most expensive hostel we stayed in during our oz trip. The facilities were adequate but the hostel wasn't very friendly in general. It's good for young single backpackers but probably not for families

I stayed with a friend in a private room, which was TINY! The facilities were very poor overall, only 2 toilets for the whole floor, the kitchen was dirty and cramped and the whole place was FREEZING!! We literally slept with all our clothes on. There were only 2 sockets which were only accessible from the top bunk which proved rather awkward. I cant say a bad thing about the staff,they were friendly, approachable and helpful but the hostel itself is very dated, and needs a massive reno to improve the overall feel of it. The location is good too but considering all the negatives, its very overpriced for a very basic hostel!

Hostel looks ok from the outside. Staff were pleasant on arrival. Room wasn't ready so waited in tv room, impressive room for a hostel. However this is where impressive stopped. Room was tiny, when we opened the backpacks the floor disappeared. One double bed and two lockers was all that was in the room. There was 2 toilets mixed for the whole floor. These were constantly occupied. The laundry facilities were broken. The kitchen was dirty and the whole hostel had a musty smell. I was disappointed with the hostel after spending a lot of money on it thinking we were going to have a nice room. I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't stay on level 3 only 2 toilets for everyone.
