Weird vibe of people living there longterm. Music as loud as a nightclub. The rooms are gross. The wifi didn't work. And the staff was drunk. When I woke up in the morning the kitchen was as gross as a nightclub, including glass and blood on the floor.. When I tried to speak to someone at the reception in the...

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.

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...
