Perfect location overlooking Bondi Beach, surrounded by incredible cafes and restaurants with a nice bar underneath, it isn't central Sydney but it's really easy to get there with busses every ten minutes although they do take 40-60 minutes. The area is really nice and it wasn't a problem being out the way at all. I felt it was pretty expensive...

I stayed in Bondi Backpackers last week and I had an amazing stay. The hostel is lovely, it's got that 'beachy' vibe all white and blue and it's the definition of clean! It is in front of the beach and I could see the ocean from my window! Supermarket, bottle shops, restaurants...everything is walking distance from the building. Staff was...

I turned up at 7:15 on their first morning of opening and they accommodated me straight away and made me feel at home even though they were rushed off their feet! They couldn't have done any more to help - great service! The rooms were spacious and clean, as were the bathrooms. I was very sad to leave this place,...

Staying in Bondi Beach

Neighbourhood Profile
Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.
