Great room rate and fantastic location, a block to the beach and a few minutes to the Sydney ferry.
Keep in mind that this is a youth backpacker accommodation and you should expect noise.
We booked a double bed Motel Room. On arrival we were put in a "family room" with 2 bunk beds, and told the price would be straightened out in the morning. Upon further discussion we were given no discount or concession and spent the remainder of our nights in the "family room". Staff said it happens all the time and tried to make excuses regarding online booking.
Location was good but thats about it.
Well its not really budget because it was $100 dollars for the night. Had no parking so had to parked about 2km away. Feared for the worst when we seen the earplugs on the bed, also our room was beside a smoking area, groups of people standing shouting outside our window. Bathrooms were dirty also.
Smell, un mean communal facilities
It is very close to the beach and Board rentals are cheap for guests.
Not very clean, showers never stayed at the same temperature, noisy (Buy some ear plugs), Cramped kitchen and fridge, not much room for anything (While i was there.)
Place was dirty. Not staff fault but residents. Each morning the corridor was covered with litter. Cockroaches were prevelant. Have stayed many times before because it was a clean budget well located place but not anymore.
Very messy and dirty looked like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks.
The location was good, the room was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The beds were the most uncomfortable I've ever attempted to sleep on. Also I wasn't a fan of the plastic sheets or pillows.
Lage, Leute, Wifi
Super Lage in Manly, fast an der Beach und am Corso. Freundliches und unkompliziertes Personal.
Dorms sowie die Gänge waren schmuddelig, hat teils ziemlich gerochen. Hatte ein Einzelzimmer welches im grossen und Ganzen ok war, bis auf Kakerlaken und den schäbigen Teppich der im ganzen Backpackers verlegt ist. Einzelzimmer ist definitiv zu teuer. Auch sitzten die Gäste in den Gängen rum.
