Customer review

01 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Good place, sadly we never really got to see the best of it because we visited in the winter and it is way too cold to take on their free services such as surf boards and bikes etc.NIce enough staff, and Collaroy itself is a nice town, but everything seems to close about 7pm, so we found we had to travel to other nearby suburbs of Manly and Sydney City to find things to occupy us.

Liked: Right on the bustop across from the beach, bright and clean like most YHA's. All things are free to use like surfboards, bicycles and night entertainment put on by staff. Area is stunning and staff really friendly and helpful. I'd recommend this one over Manly or Bondi hostels.

Arthur Fedor

16 December 2008 Arthur would recommend this property

Liked: There had been a communication errror between us and the hostel staff which resulted in an unwanted booking cancellation. The staff were extremely sensitive to our needs and went way beyond our expectations to rectify the problem. I would not hesitate to recommend this hostel, and I plan to stay ther when I return to the "magic down under".

Liked: Free hire of surf boards, body boards and bikes, lockers in rooms and cinema room with large range of dvds to watch for free. Also very close to the beach. Its about 1 hour on a bus to the city centre but if its a beach stay you are after then this is perfect.

Customer review

13 November 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Friendly atmosphere, 2 seconds from the beach and surfing. Communal areas to meet people. A bit far from the Sydney centre however. Beware, this city is very, very large. The difference in bus fare makes up for the difference in price. If you want night life, pick a hostel closer to town. But if you want a relaxed atmosphere and easy pub nights this is the place!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
