Sydney's southern beachside hostel, Cronulla Beach YHA makes a great base for visiting and working in Sydney. Learn to dive, surf and swim on 5km of beach, walk to shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
Rooms have 2-6 beds and facilities include TV/movie room, internet access and pool table as well as free use of bodyboards and sporting equipment.
For something a bit different take a ferry to Royal National Park and explore aboriginal carvings, secluded beaches and waterfalls.
What travellers think
This place is gloriously run down and quirky. A lot of the European guests wanted to celebrate Australia Day by becoming outrageously drunk and noisy. Ah well, you take the good with the bad. Over all, we loved it in the way that you love an eccentric old aunt. would recommend it
