It‘s way to expensive for what you get. The work agency was really bad. 3 Jobs in 3 months. Then the kitchen closes at 10pm and there is no longer an option to get access to the fridge, the sink or the filtered water. Even on weekends. Then the rooms are really old and some are in bad condition. The laundry machine and dryer charges 4$ each and it’s not rare that they don‘t work right. There are some people that were really smelly. We‘ve been rhere for 3 months (because we had a job).

unclean kitchen , bathroom & bedroom floor. Sanitary napkin on toilet cubicle floor...used...2 days level 3 female toilet. Kitchen utensils not clean either. Dirt & sand on bedroom floor. Floors need painting with decking paint or something. Other lady sharing (American) also agreed.)

This hostel is a great location if you want to be near to Sydney but not in the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s a more relaxed pace, with the beach on the doorstep and a pool to lounge in. It’s also not too far from shops, a beautiful lagoon, and water sports. It’s tired and dated, but otherwise it’s in a great spot.

Great location just opposite the beach, still quiet to sleep well. Wifi only in the mornings even if you buy premium. No crockery and kitchen tools. Free rental of surfboards... but in poor condition. Friendly staff. Busstop (buses every 10 min) and little cafe(opens at 6am) in front of the house. Suitable for early birds as well. Carpark at the rear. Reception 8.30am till 7pm. Several Eateries (Thai, Mex, Indian... round the corner). No sightseeing places around,only visiting Northern beaches.

Overall I loved it. The staff was amazing, the location is perfect! It’s a hostel so I mean it wasn’t overly clean but the staff did their best to stay on top of things. Guys bathrooms weren’t overly appealing but that had to do with the guys that were staying there. If you love the beach then this hostel is for you.

Definitely air con necessary for summer periods, room temperatures over 27 °C aren’t really comfortable for sleeping. Facilities could be overall renovated and renewed. Soap dispenser, and hand drier haven’t been working for more than 2 months. Furnitures partly in really bad conditions . Hostel doesn’t provid what’s shown and promised on the pictures on the Website.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS ON YHA.COM.AU

YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That’s why when you give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS

If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
