Loved staying in the hostel, I was there for almost 4 months and didn’t want to leave. Tia on reception is amazing, and I’d now call her a friend, she goes above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay. Kataya, one of the cleaners is really good at her job and is so friendly. I really enjoyed my time at this hostel and have recommended it to so many people since.

This hostel is amazing amazing place to stay! I have been in the female dorm for roughly 3-4months and have made some of the best friends. It’s clean and welcoming and the perfect location if you are a beach lover! There is a real mixture of travellers and people using the hostel as a base to work and save for more travelling! Couldn’t recommend it enough.

Travelled all over Australia and this is by far the best hostel I have stayed at. The layout of the hostel is perfect for making friends and socialising or if you want to relax it is quiet enough to do so. The hostel is kept clean and Kristy listens to all requests for any upgrades or if we need any new things. Tia is absolutely amazing and will do anything she can to help, with no complaints. And the location is unbelievable, couldn’t be closer to the beach if you wanted to be.Thank you Kristy and everyone else for making my time in aus so good

Best hostel in Sydney by far, stay is amazing, views are amazing and company is amazing. Couldn’t ask for anything better!
Had a great time at the Mad Monkey Coogee! The location can’t be beat and it’s easy to make friends and meet your fellow backpackers at this hostel. There have been a few hostels that I’ve been to where it’s a bit cliquey, or it’s more like a hotel, but this one is a smaller hostel with a chill vibe, if you want to meet people and make friends, you can, or if you want to keep to yourself, you can do that. There’s a bus stop across the street that gets you pretty much anywhere you want to go in Sydney not to mention the beach. The hostel is cleaned every day, and luckily we had a pretty good group on both of my stays that cleaned up after themselves, but as with any hostel, every now and then you get someone less considerate in. I couldn’t recommend this place more to anyone who wanted to stay.
Amazing location, friendly staff, great vibe and cool people staying. Would definitely recommend !

The whole experience was great. easy to book. Easy to check in. Close to everything. The room & bed were clean & comfy. I slept well & don't normally do that when away from home.

This was my third time staying. Just love the place and the staff!
I stayed here for a few weeks recently. Kristy is lovely and I had a great experience during my stay. Can't beat being next to the beach - very fairly priced, gem of roommates.
