The web page is nothing like the place we went as a family couple in one room and 5 in the other if they could not give 5 people beds in the family room they should not have taken the booking. Parking very difficult because there is no off street parking .The place also has bed bugs, there was no...

Our room was nothing like the photos online. Very disappointed with the room we were given. We stayed 10 nights and didn't receive clean linen once. We were told we couldn't eat in our room even though we had a fridge and microwave? Only consider staying if you like the backpacker party seen. Definitely wouldn't recommend as a bed &...

We had four days in Syndey before leaving Downunder and we had a great stay at the Sinclairs. The manager was super helpful and friendly and gave us lots of ideas of what to see. The room was very nice, clean and newly renovated (new bathroom, bed, sofa, TV, etc) with a very comfy bed for the parents. The pull-out...

I stayed in Sinclairs for a week and found it to be very clean and comfortable. Not only was it a short bus trip to the beach but was filled with a good crowd. When I arrived I had the flu and found the management to be very helpful. They carried my suitcases to my room, made me tea and...

Our room stunk of smoking and when conplaining about it were told that just that morning two men had left that room and probably haf been smoking. Great! Always a wonderful image to cozy up in bed to, the previous occupant. the smell...

Hi Sacha423 Thanks for your feedback. We pride ourselves on cleanliness of our property and we take this feedback seriously. Unfortunately we were unaware that previous guests were smoking in the room, this is against our policy. We did our best to service the room and try eliminate any odour. We would like to let you know that we have...

In terms of the accommodation, Sinclairs is what I'd expect from a hostel in this price range. Room and share bathroom seemed clean, and bed was reasonably comfortable. This is definitely a young person's hostel; I am 30 and felt borderline too old. The comments from other reviewers about problems with management fit in with my experience. There is apparently...

Friendly and welcoming staff. Nice room with own TV. Good facilities - clean and comfortable. Kitchen facilities more for quick snacks than big meals. Good breakfast included. Pleasant location - 12 minutes walk from Bondi Junction, 20 minutes walk from Bondi beach. Frequent bus services. Very good value for a single room in Sydney. Well recomended.

Hello, this was the second time I stayed at Sinclairs Bondi on holiday. I really like the Bennett Street location. My room was very comfortable with a nice view of the street and its own private bath. Otto is an amazing host. He took great care of us and was gave us helpful suggestions on things to do and see...

Thanks Otto and Robbie for making my stay so relaxed and friendly. I've stayed on the beach at Bondi and paid the big bucks but I wouldn't stay anywhere else than Sinclairs when visiting Sydney. Besides being great value, Sinclairs offers a comfortable, friendly atmosphere, a quiet safe, environment that is central to beach, shops, cinemas, pubs, transport and the...

“The queen sized room at the front was spacious, but had night traffic. The double room at the back was quieter in terms of traffic noise, but the walls were a bit thin, so you could hear your neighbours.”
