Liked: Overall quite clean, well organized, good facilities and a good location (if you're looking for a place next to the beach, outside of Sydney).

Disliked: Even though our room seemed to be clean, it didn't smell that way. Every time we opened the door when we returned, it smelled like mould.

Liked: Staff were friendly and easy to get to from bus stop.

Disliked: Nosey gang took over outside eating area every night which made it very off putting to eat your dinner. Bikes were knackered and not much selection if you wanted a surf board. The beach was really close but not much else going on.

Liked: Individually lockers (take your own padlock. And location were so close to beach.

Disliked: Otherwise very good place, but there was no control over christmas to maintain peace and quiet during night time. There were noise. Also at the day time they were allowed to play music too loud, you couldn't hear your thoughts while making a meal.

17 December 2010

Liked: Location.

Disliked: Bathrooms on floors 1 and 2 smell of urine. Kitchen is often dirty, not many pots and pans to cook with. Rooms are small, and the rooms are too hot. As of today they are turning the TV room into a 10 bed dormitory, which is probably ILLEGAL seeing there is no proper fire escape for that room! No Christmas decorations anywhere in the building. This hostel will have a long awaited change of management on January 1, 2011.
