Nice vibe, stayed in a four bed dorm with clean and comfy beds. Very clean bathroom with a great shower. Lockers big enough for a day bag plus coats and shoes. 5 minute walk from the beach and a simple walk from the ferry.More

Hi Cecilia Glad you appreciated the clean facilities and friendly people. We have found it best to provide all guests with their own crockery and cutlery as they tend to look after it better that way. The system works really well. We got new mattresses...More

Hi Tom Thanks for the review. I found the positive comments to be accurate but the negatives have been exaggerated considerably, At 69 years of age you are a long way from being a teenager or in your early 20's so perhaps backpacker hostels aren't...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
