I stayed in a 6 bed dorm for several weeks. The hostel has a great location - situated right by Bondi Beach and the hostel is a bus ride away to the city and bondi junction.
The room itself was spacious, clean and the beds were comfy. They clean the rooms and the hostel daily so is a clean place to stay.
The hostel is pretty quiet so ideal if your working (I was working full time, getting back to the hostel in the early hours of the morning and was ideal) but also there is a lot going on with staff arranging wine and cheese night, barbeques on the rooftop, pancakes morning, costal walks and exercise mornings as well as loads of other activities which are a great way to meet people.
The staff are super friendly and helpful. They come round the rooms and invite you to the daily events if interested, letting you know about local bars etc.
The hostel also has FREE Unlimited Wifi (which you rarely get at hostels) and it actually works really well all over the hostel (a rare occurrence at anywhere else I have stayed.
Overall this hostel is one of the best I have stayed at in Sydney. It has amazing views of Bondi Beach and I would recommend this to anyone coming to Bondi for a visit or for a longer period of time.
