    Views from guided walk along shore to Bondi Beach were outstanding. Bagel with salmon at café was very tasty.

    Having to use elevator instead of stairs, which often required a long wait. Loud, unpleasant music playing in lobby and elevators constantly, including the one small area provided for using laptops on table tops. Very small room (made for two) with no chair or anything other than a bunk bed with small mattresses, small nightstand, and wall-mounted TV with no comfortable place to watch it from. Smelly urinals in shared bathroom. Nonadjustable shower heads pointing at inconvenient angle. Hindi Beach was "tour guide" did little more than walk from start to end point, doing very little to keep the group together and prevent people from getting left behind - in fact, when I asked him how many of us there were in the group, he didn't know the exact number. Bath towels but no face towels available.

    Well organized, very clean, still cosy and comfortable

    Hostel with a lot of people in it. Thus hard to get in contact.
