Great location
The location is brilliant, the rest is really terrible! Unfriendly and nonhelpful staff, no cleaning, bad standard of rooms and bathrooms and to expensive for what you get! They choose to not answer your mail with questions if they can't solve your wishes. They give people free wifi if they rate them with 5 stars. And by the way, the wifi you pay for are worthless!! Coogee is a wonderful spot but i will never again stay on surfside coogee beach backpackers!!

AVOID!!
This place is so appalling, it's hard to know where to start. We got bedbugs. We spent the night being woken up every half an hour or so by some wasted backpacker throwing rubbish in our windows, yelling and screaming, banging the walls, f**king up against our dorm door. It was dirty and disgusting and now I'm having to get rid of the bedbugs that have made it back to my house. I've traveled the world and stayed in many hostels, and have never been in such a sh*thole.

Worst hostel to stay, stay away!!
Kitchen is tiny and the whole place smell. The bathroom is disgusting and only one sink works. Lots of hidden fees. Some of the staffs are not that friendly at all and not very helpful. All the hostels were booked up that's the only reason why we stay here because all other places were booked. If you have a choice I would stay away, it takes about 40mins to get to the CBD, and there is not much to do here at all and you have to go into town to do anything.

Bad
In all honesty do not stay here, there are far better options for only a couple extra dollars a night, which you end up paying here anyways due to hidden fees. Terribly living conditions, disgusting bathrooms (not due to the tireless and patient cleaning staff, but the residents), noisy until all hours, cockroaches in the bathroom and kitchen, no one cleans their dishes so you end up doing yours twice. All in all save yourself a trial and go somewhere else. On top of this I had a booking issue which ended up with me being double booked, which cost me an extra 80$, I was back in my home country when I realized and this hostel is blowing me off, cool people.

Poor
Worst hostel i came across during my whole year in oz. Unfriendly staff, dirty, no aircon or fans in peak summer, cramped. People stealing food constantly, Rooms like saunas and a poor atmosphere overall, would not recommend to anyone.

What a craphole -- AVOID
Where to start, embarrassingly overpriced for what you get, which would be dirty rooms and generally unhelpful staff. residents can crash about all through the night but if you are making noise after 10pm you are quickly threatened with deposit loss. only good thing about this place is checking out and going to anywhere else that seems like a palace in comparison. dump, rubbish, an actual joke. AVOID.

Dump
Hated the time l spent here. Rooms cramped, nowhere to store belongings, fixtures in bathrooms broken and not enough of them, noise until the early hours. Coogee is a beautiful place to visit but l'd never stay at this hostel again. Only thing l have good to say about it is that the staff did try their best to help but it just wasn't good enough.
