I stayed here 4 years ago, when I was backpacking trough Australia. I was planning to stay here for a week, since Bondi beach is such a nice place, ended up staying 5 months.... This hostel is great. Good location, nice facilities, friendly staff and a good common area and kitchen as well. Would recommend this place to all backpackers...

We booked in here as we wanted a couple of nights in Bondi - bad choice! $30 per night which didn't include a blanket for the bed? We had to pay extra money to 'hire' blankets from the rude woman at reception and when we got them, they were crusty and dirty! SO disgusting and the beds looked like they'd...

Sounds lovely, just in front of the beach, nice view on the waves to plan for some surfing. Well, after a heavy Aussie Breaky let's check in ! 30$ per night sounds fair...

I did a trip to Sydney with a mate to see another schooldays girl get married and did it on the cheap staying at Bondi. It's very close to a nice beach, lots of shops, places to eat, hotels and public transport. There were plenty of other people around and I don't think anyone would be lonely staying there longer...

I've spent more than 3 months in this hostel and it has been a fantastic time! The hostel is located in the best place, less than 200 meters from the beach. Perfect for the ones like me that want to surf or enjoy the beach. The rooms are fine and everything is pretty clean and you can always find someone...

I checked into BondiBackpackers June 2013 meaning to stay for a few weeks before moving on up the coast. A few weeks quickly turned into five an a half months! The hostel is slap bang in the middle of the beach, right on the sea front, you can even get binoculars from reception and whale watch from the TV room!...

I am generally not a hostel fan but Bondi Backpackers was such a great experience! Excellent location, and even better people! Very much a family vibe with the other guests with sea views and the beach right across the street! Heaps of cafes, shops, everything right outside the door including buses right to the city! Staff is very helpful with...

Thanks for taking the time to review us. We agree 100% the people make the hostel. We could be the newest, flashest backpackers on the block but that would mean nothing if we didn't have amazing guests!

A warm and friendly place if you want to meet a bunch of great people in one of the most stunning locations in Sydney. Well worth the added travel if you want to be by the beach.

Staying in Bondi Beach

Neighbourhood Profile
Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.
