Cool Paul Definitely a good place to relax, I went when it was getting cold so it was kind of dead, but it did have a nice BBQ area and dining area and pool. Free bike and surfboard hire. It's a little out of the way on the northern beaches but it's nice. not much to do in the are once you are there except go to the beach.

Sander By far my favorite hostel in Sydney, I return here every chance I get. The very best part about this hostel is its location in glorious Glebe, a very welcoming and almost bohemian feeling neighbourhood, with the atmosphere of a small village, yet a mere 20 minute walk / 10 minute bus ride (15 in rush hour) away from central station (take bus 431, and ride it to its next to last stop; you'll know you're there when everyone else has gotten off the bus). Glebe Point Road is lined with awesome bakeries, cafes, used bookstores and restaurants, perfect for spending a lazy afternoon. The hostel itself has good atmosphere, and features an awesome rooftop terrace with lazy hammocks (only in summer) and frequent barbecues. Its rooms are clean, the kitchen large and okayishly equipped (has been better), and the bathrooms are decent (although only just; they could definitely stand being improved upon). I don't care much for its TV lounge either, but with the rooftop terrace, I've never felt the need to hang out there anyway. Highly recommended.

Cool Paul The Palms, The Palms, The Palms, where do I begin? I met a guy in the blue Mountains that said, "If you are going back to sydney you need to go to The Palms! Free internet! Free xbox! Free Breakfast! Tons of cool people..." He wouldn't stop talking about it, so me and a girl I met in the blue mountains booked a night a couple of nights there. Well I got there and my first impression of the place was to turn around and run as fast as I could. the building was mess, I had to step over a people laying in the middle of the floor to get to my room which was so cluttered I couldn't open the door all the way. Plus there were bugs on the walls! I headed out with this girl for the night we partied at a couple of clubs with some people from other hostels, and I came back to the palms at 4am and everyone was still up so I started talking to a few of them, I had a blast made a lot of new friends...next thing I know a couple of weeks passed and I had to pry myself away to see the rest of australia. I could have easily spent my entire trip there. The place is small...it's like a house with 30 people living in it, and most of the people have either been there for months because they like it so much or they are return visitors because they liked it so much. plus the owner, Dan is pretty cool, he has a dog that hangs around the hostel, and takes people to the beach. Best hostel I stayed at in australia...easily!
