This was my first time staying at a hostel, and I was pleased with Bondi Backpackers. Having now stayed at a few others, this one is definitely up there. I travelled solo and I thought there was a good mix of friendly people of all ages. Their activities such as yoga, a bbq and wine and cheese night make it easy to meet people. The location can't be beat. It's close to lots of good restaurants and a grocery store nearby. The rooms and bathrooms were kept clean. I could have used a A/C unit, but it was manageable with the windows open and fan on. There was a bar downstairs that stayed noisy until about midnight, but it was the type of noise that is muffled so easy to ignore. Lockers were new and big enough. Beds were decent comfort. Wifi connection was strong and free. The travel desk downstairs books good excursions (highly recommend figure 8 pool). They rent out/hire surf boards for free which is super nice! Take the transfer shuttle from the airport for $20.
