Liked: Surely one of the best quality hostels I stayed in. The staff knows how to help, are open and fun and have an answer for any requests. They have great tours and organize a lot of activities to help people get together and enjoy their time. Best thing about the stay was the Coastal Walk from Coogee to Bondi Beach. Connor and his colleagues really did a great job tourguiding and showing us around!Clean, nice, superlocation!

Disliked: Well, the audience is really young and party-oriented. I'm 30, often felt like the oldest person in a room. They give out a lot of vouchers for free drinks, encourage party...I'm a bit over that phase so next time I might choose something more quiet.Oh, what really disgusted me is the "International Bikini Contest" they have on once a week in a bar. Really? Encouraging teeneagers to undress in their bikini for free drinks? Sexist? Primitive? This is 2015 ...just saying...
