With the best staff, location and ability to find work this is a must go on your working holiday. The beach is amazing and Mike, Rene and the rest of the staff are very helpful. Close enough to catch the subway to Sydney but still its own awesome community Cronulla is a great spot to check out.

This place is great. The people are awesome and it feels like one big, weird family. I came here with almost no money and found a job really easily, and it's a really nice area of Sydney. If you are in Australia and looking for a place to chill on the beach, make money and have lots of fun than... More

Friendly staff, big kitchen and super nice TV room. The location is perfect: close to the supermarket, a lot of restaurants and near the beaches. The train station of Cronulla it's far only 6 minutes walking.

Staff were friendly however I arrived late at night. I was note notified or advised I needed to hire utensils, plates etc. I literally had already started cooking before I realised I had nothing to eat it with. Expensive & overpriced. Not a chance of a good night sleep. Unless you are an 18yr old classic backpacker looking to only... More

This is the worst hostel we have been to so far! We booked the hostel by the phone and because it is an YHA we thought we were certain of some kind of quality standard. Never been so wrong in my life! As we entered, the putrid smell of this damp place blew in our face and it smelled awefull.... More

If I could give this place zero stars I would. Paid $105 for a private room with ensuite, not even worth $20. I read other reviews about noise/cleanliness so was already prepared for the worst, but it was worse than I expected. Staff were completely disinterested, noise was unbearable in the common areas (even during the day for some reason,... More
