Positive Reviews

Fantastic location by the beach

The best asset that the hostel has going for it is its location – according to the sentiments of former guests. The property is positioned right next to Coogee Beach, while most major areas of Sydney are also just a short drive away.

Friendly and responsive staff

Despite some complaints, the majority of past visitors were happy with the customer service they received during their time at the accommodation. For the most part, the staff members have been considered responsive and friendly in their approach.

Great views on offer

The views delivered by the hostel's beachfront location was applauded on occasion by previous guests. From the main balcony area of the building, you apparently get fantastic views of the beach – something that is made even better during sunsets!

Negative Reviews

Substandard cleanliness levels

Most former visitors have highlighted the accommodation's cleanliness levels as one of its biggest negatives. From the rooms to public areas, countless hygiene-related problems have been encountered throughout the property.

Wi-Fi close to non-existent

The Wi-Fi service has proven to be a typical source of grievance for past guests of the hostel. In fact, most have had difficulty in even getting connected to the facility during their time at the property.

Breakfast in a poor state

The quality of the breakfast was condemned by many of those that sampled this aspect of the accommodation. Along with a real lack of variety with only cereal available in terms of food, the need to purchase milk was routinely lambasted, and went against the 'complimentary' nature of the breakfast.
