My friend and I had an excellent stay at Bondi Backpackers! The location is unbeatable and the staff is top-notch... Dave is an incredibly friendly guy and helped us feel right at home upon our arrival to Australia. Can't say enough good things about this place...the people, BBQs, rooftop yoga, pancake breakfasts, accommodations and living atmosphere is on point! Looking forward to future stays with the crew on Bondi Beach!! Cheers!

At first I planned to stay in the Hostel for just 1 week but in the end I was there for almost 3 Months. I am studying in Sydney and thought living in an hostel would be stressful but not in this Hostel. It is super clean, has a perfect location, and the staff is extremly friendly and competent. They helped me to solve whatever problem I had. It has a nice kitchen with everything you need, big fridges, and enough place to store personal belongings. They provide a lot of social activities like free BBQ, WineandCheese, Fitness, Yoga,... so it is really easy to make friends. Also it is perfectly quiete at night so it's not a problem to start the day early. Thanks for everything!

Best hostel I have stayed at so far in Oz. Great staff and daily activities like yoga and cross fit. Wednesday and Friday nights are super lit. Close to a bunch of pretty rippable waves and some gnarly slabs.

Eli My Dude.

So stoked on how hard you frothed on your stay at Bondi Backpackers. The staff here will be mad chilling with your epic words. Glad you got stuck into the great free activities we have going on. I always love a morning yoga session before hitting the ocean to find the perfect curler to get proper stuck into the green room.

Thanks for your great rating and feedback.

As always Keep It lit Bro.

The location is great for the beach and we loved the rooftop terrace. The hostel itself is generally nice compared to others we have stayed in however I think the kitchen was slightly grubby. We stayed here as a couple and booked a twin room as there was no doubles available, however when we arrived it was a box room with a bunk bed and not two separate singles like we had seen on photos. Not to mention the fact the bed squeaked with the tiniest movement. I'm sure the rooms with a beach view are amazing but all we could see outside our window was a brick wall so barely had any natural daylight. We felt very ripped off as we paid $90 per night for this room!

Hi there,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback! we appreciate all feedback both good and bad and view it as a chance to better our guests experience.

We are very lucky with our location right in the heart of the action of Bondi Beach. There really is no better way to start the day than some roof top yoga and whale watching! I am glad you got to get up there and check things out. We do have great pride in what we do and our high level of cleanliness so Im stoked that we you found our cleanliness to be of a better quality than other properties

I must apologise for any confusion surrounding our twin rooms they are advertised online as a single bunk bed as displayed in all our photos, I will be doing a complete audit of the whole building to ensure all the bunks are squeak free! All our beach view rooms are also advertised online as having a beach view or deluxe dorms.

Thanks again for your valuable feedback.

I stayed here for 2 weeks in the end it was such a great place. Waking up in the morning, opening my eyes to the beautiful blue ocean with surfers everywhere was what I imagined it to be and it came true! The rooms were lovely and clean, great space and comfy beds. Lockers for your essentials if you felt as if you needed to lock them away. I had no trouble with anyone in my room we became a close knit family. There's free activities on every morning including yoga, walks and fitness training, in the evening they have BBQS, competitions and loads more. I would say the bathrooms could do with being updated as they are old however they were always clean! The kitchen and dining could do with being extended as it is small but that's just when it's busy in there, there's not much room to cook. Other than that I would stay there again 100% and have already recommended a couple friends to stay and they have.

Hi BethRose,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback. It certainly sounds like you have had an awesome experience with us. We are a smaller hostel so we thrive on a small social family like atmosphere. It does mean out activities are a lot more sociable and we can do a lot more for out guests :) . The kitchen and dining situation is currently be reviewed and we are hoping to make some big improvements in the future. I am so stoked you have recommended us to your friends!

Thanks again for your review.
