Mad Monkey Coogee Beach

This hostel is amazing amazing place to stay! I have been in the female dorm for roughly 3-4months and have made some of the best friends. It’s clean and welcoming and the perfect location if you are a beach lover! There is a real mixture of travellers and people using the hostel as a base to work and save for more travelling! Couldn’t recommend it enough.

Such a great hostel ! I have been staying in Mad Monkey for two months now - which tells a tale in itself. The hostel is very clean with great facilities.Mad Monkey is such a great place to make friends and the staff are more than accommodating and helpful. It’s like a big home. Never want to leave !!!

Travelled all over Australia and this is by far the best hostel I have stayed at. The layout of the hostel is perfect for making friends and socialising or if you want to relax it is quiet enough to do so. The hostel is kept clean and Kristy listens to all requests for any upgrades or if we need any new things. Tia is absolutely amazing and will do anything she can to help, with no complaints. And the location is unbelievable, couldn’t be closer to the beach if you wanted to be.Thank you Kristy and everyone else for making my time in aus so good

Had a great time at the Mad Monkey Coogee! The location can’t be beat and it’s easy to make friends and meet your fellow backpackers at this hostel. There have been a few hostels that I’ve been to where it’s a bit cliquey, or it’s more like a hotel, but this one is a smaller hostel with a chill vibe, if you want to meet people and make friends, you can, or if you want to keep to yourself, you can do that. There’s a bus stop across the street that gets you pretty much anywhere you want to go in Sydney not to mention the beach. The hostel is cleaned every day, and luckily we had a pretty good group on both of my stays that cleaned up after themselves, but as with any hostel, every now and then you get someone less considerate in. I couldn’t recommend this place more to anyone who wanted to stay.
