    Fantastic location. Good (clean) double room but it was freezing. The reception staff kindly gave us extra blankets. The bathrooms are a bit mouldy. The hostel has a cold atmosphere in winter but would be nice in summer, although then we would find it hard to get a room. Location alone makes this hostel well worth recommending. Would stay again.

    No, at least not in the winter, because it is very cold in the building and the rooms. Otherwise, average rating for a youth hostel.

    This hostel is in a great location but I could not wait to get out of there. There are a few attempts at decor, a surfboard screwed to the wall or whatever, but the place is well, just tatty. Our mattress was torn, the room had little to distinguish it from from a prison cell. In such a popular location it's hard to see why the hostel needs to look like a nineteen-sixties boarding school.

    It was very cold in sydney and there was no heater in the hostel. It was impossible to stay in the room except in the bed with the blanket. So, we couldn't enjoy the amenities of the hostel because of the temperature. Really didn't worth it for the price.

    Very clean and chill out place to stay. More long termers stay there so its easy to sleep at night and generally quiet. Staff are helpful and the scenery surrounding the hostel is beautiful. Walking distance to both Bondi beach and the train/bus station. Would recommend 100percent and would happily return there again.

    Pleasurable stay at the Bondi Beachhouse YHA. Very friendly staff and clean facilities, not too busy in off season which is nice, with a better price ($40/n). Free street parking was a bonus. Bathroom facilities are a bit small for the amount of rooms per floor (2 stalls), and WIFI a bit slow in the rooms, but other than that everything was great. Would definitely stay here again.

    The hostel is located in a great spot and the staff are very helpful and friendly. It is not the cleanest of hostels - we had a huge roach in our room one night and the showers and sinks had lots of tangled hair. When the cleaning woman was going around I think she did a very poor job.

    I was there for three nights, and it was pretty amazing. The house it a bit older, so it has some signs showing that but the bathrooms get cleaned at least once a day and the atmosphere is totally making up for anything else.

    I came with my family and found the place dirty, really loud at night with people blasting music from their room and running up and down the halls screaming. When we arrived there were dirty dishes in our room, the plumbing wasn't working, and there were no towels. The facilities are totally run down and nobody seems to care about it. This place totally does not meet the standards of YHA.

    First YHA review, staff were amazingly friendly, whole place was well kept and really clean. Not smelly at all. Bed was comfy and room had sea view. Bathrooms are small, but again clean.

    Overall it is good, but it is so hard to park your car . All of street side were full of cars parking there. You have to think about parking issue if you have a car. It is good if you have no cars. Cheap price, good location, close to Sydney centre.
