“As a solo traveller I was more occupied with the location of the lodge rather than comfort. I would not be spending a lot of time at the lodge other than to sleep / shower. I stayed four nights at the lodge and for the price ( 38 dollars a night), I got a single room with a TV and kitchenette. These facilities were decent. My bed was OK, a bit hard for my liking but what more could you expect for the price? As for the location, this is perfect. Located only a few hundred meters from the beach, you are close to cafes and restaurants. Bus connections to Bondi Junction and the city depart frequently. In short, I was looking for a quite place in Bondi. I found it, and for the location and price, this was a ripper of a deal.”
I have enjoyed my stay very much! The girls at the front desk are very nice, especially Laura. I stayed at the hostel for 2 months so they gave me a room with a bathroom for the same price even though i wasn’t supposed to have one! The room could have been a bit cleaner, but i wasn’t bad. It does cost money to use most of the facilities like the kitchen, and the internet, but its not to expencive. The location is excellent! Very close to the beach and its not a party hostel, quiet at night. Norway Female

My experience at Lamrock lodge was great, after a few bad experiences at other hostels it was lovely to of stayed at a nice safe and friendly accommodation.
Also was a great way of meeting people from all over the world. The rooms are well lit and clean with flat screen T. V.and bar fridge. Attractions of accommodation may include;
Internet access, share kitchen with utilities provided to cook meals, nice outside seating,information on events local and around Australia site seeing and attractions, very close to everything including , local pubs,cafe’s, places to eat shopping,public transport and Bondi beach only down the road!!! :).
The over all stay was great also being able to extend are stay the night before was no problem. The only thing there is a lot of young people staying and on weekends they can have afew to many drinks and get abit loud but if you have any problems there is always stuff members near by that will attend to the matter or problem you may have Jenna – March 2012

Laura is a piece of cake
Lamrock is by far the best hostel in Bondi! Its regually cleaned and the staff are really friendly (especially Laura, whos and absolute diamond!!!). So close to the beach and all requirments. Definately one of the best hostels ive stayed in while travelling oz!!!
Quiet place to stay
Very nice place to stay. 2 minutes walking distance for the beach. The place is clean and the staff is friendly. The lamrock avenue is a very quiet place to stay. Can get busy in summer time. Best times in the Lamrock …

Good value for money
Lamrock is a really great place to stay… All the staff are friendly and the rooms are really clean and well equipped. It’s so close to the beach and all the restaurants and is great value for the price. It’s cheaper than all other hostels around Bondi…

Thanks Lamrock for the job
Dear Igor, just a letter to say thank you, Rachel and I have really enjoyed staying at Lamrock Lodge, it was so good getting up in morning to see such a beautiful view! Working at Combuild was more than I could have wished for I and really enjoyed the challenge of such a big project.
I would like if you could email pictures of the building & decking once it is complete. I would like to thank the staff at Lamrock, everyone is so friendly. I look forward to hearing from you. Hopefully I will come back to Australia one day and will pay you a visit in Bondi. Many thanks.
Just wanted to say your hostel is lovely!! It’s the nicest hostel we’ve stayed in. All of the staff were so friendly + helpful (especially the ladies and Michael). Your hostel is so clean – if we could have done we would have loved to have stay for longer. Merry Xmas to all of you and thank ou for making our stay so great! We shall be recommending you to travelers we meet!

Surfing at Bondi
The Lamrock is popular with the cool surfing set. 100 metres to the beach and even closer to the off license. Cable TV, internet access and hyps of Bondi beauties soaking up the sun – Oh man!

Good place for couples
I stayed here when my boyfriend just got into town (me being in Oz for about a month before him). It’s good if you just want to be alone with your boy/girl. The doubles have TVs, microwaves, sink and fridge – which is perfect for staying clean.

I’ll be back at the lodge
Arrival was cool, met people out the front, having fun and honestly enjoing holiday (tha’ts Sydney). At Lamrock no one said” nope, let’s just leave”. We all stayed.Then 2 weeks then 3 weeks, then time was the holiday!!!!!

Thank you guys
Non posso crederci! Il bagno era pulito e cosi’ la stanza. Anche per gente esigente come gli italiani
Very clean room and bathrooms. For demanding people.
