Worst night in Manly

Location, clean and freindly staff
Overall stay is ok, just that at night it is quite dangerous especially for girls and there are some other backpackers that get drunk and attack the girls that they even crash into female toilet. We experience it personally as we are walking to the toilet and suddenly a drunk guy came out from the party room and try to attack us. Although we had locked ourselves in the shower room, that guy climb over the door and we were scared to death. Luckily, there was nothing happen at the end. Thank god and please look into this matter as there may be something bad happen to others in future. Thanks.

Good location

Location only
Very nice location and the tall lady in front desk is very friendly. Room is very messy and no cupboard. Please check the rooms of the long staying guests coz they tend to occupy all the space, very messy and no space for new arrival guests. It would be better ito label all the racks and bed numbers.

Great location, basic rooms

Very close to the beach, nightlife, shops etc.
I booked 3 nights here and when I arrived I wasn't sure if I liked it. The rooms are very basic and it felt a little bit dirty however after my 3rd night I really didn't want to leave. The staff let me change room when needed and were really nice about me checking out a few minutes late. The people there were really friendly and they have stuff on in the evenings such as a BBQ which was great! If you go knowing that it is basic hostel accom then you will enjoy it.

Good location and friendly staff

Location, staff
After reading the reviews I was worried with what to expect, but I arrived to a friendly front desk, clean rooms and bathrooms and was pleasantly surprised! Don't let the bad reviews turn you away from a fine hostel!

Great Location but small rooms

Near Beach
I dislike the service provided by the receptionist. They are not friendly. The kitchen is not clean. You will found cockroach on the table. They are providing the free wifi for the customers but not all the computer can access to the internet.

great location

This hotel is a stones throw from the beach. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Toilets and showers on 1st floor off eating area are locked off after 11pm which is a bit frustrating. As the smaller shower and toilets end up with long queues.

Backpacker propre et personnel sympa

La situation géographique à 2 min de la plage, un personnel attentif et une ambiance plutôt décontractée, ce n'est pas la boîte de nuit tous les soirs
Très bon séjour, rien à dire, les hôtes étaient aussi sympa et respectueux, les magasins sont à 5 min à pied, le ferry vers Sydney est aussi à 5 min à pied

Tolle Lage aber dreckiges Hostel

Super Lage, super Strand!
Das Hostel ist super gelegen und liegt 2 min vom wunderschönen Manly Beach entfernt. Das Hostel ist aber leider recht dreckig und man hat viele Instekten als Gäste. Trotz all dem ist es für alleinreisende eine super günstige Lösung! Man(n) muss eifach seine Ansprüche auf fast null stellen, dann klappt das auch.
