    Hi Katie. Sorry to hear you had some trouble checking in with us. I wish you had mentioned some of your concerns rather than just leaving as we would have tried to resolve the issues you were having. We review and clean each dorm daily....More

    The first nice thing to mention is that - as a couple - you have the option to get a double bed in a dorm. Unfortunately the downside about our dorm was that it was inhabited by very messy people, the smell was awful! A...More

    Manly
    A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
    you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
    here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
    day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
    a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
    Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
    plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
    cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
