Travel Gay Reviews of 357 – Sydney City SteamLeave Review

  1. B Bruce
    Only decent sauna I've been to

    “Good facilities but I feel like it's not worth it for me to go on weekday nights after work. I haven't tried Friday nights which apparently peak. I dunno, 3 years ago, I used to snag at least one guy a night but I'm pretty sure the last 4 times I've gone empty handed. There's just not enough population for a twink that loves bears.“

  2. C Charles

    “First time since Cov19 was awesome. Friday night on 3rd floor - lots of hands/touching recognised one by is touch warmth he remembered - too great fun. xx“

  3. N Na

    “Harry the customer didn’t go on a Friday or opening day so wouldn’t know what he is talking about.“

  4. M Mark

    “Harry you haven’t been there outside a Wednesday since these guys have reopened I’d keep very quiet you don’t even know what your talking about.“

  5. H Harry
    in defence of 357

    “In case some readers are alarmed by some of the recent reviews, I believe someone is intentionally smearing this venue (also happening on another website).

    First up the nonsense about their pricing is easy to disprove. Just check their official website. Maximum price is $30 on weekends/ public holidays.

    Regarding cleanliness and smell, I assure you it is not a problem. Sometimes I go on a Wednesday lunchtime, which a very popular nude event and one of their busiest times. The dark room gets a bit messy following this, but I have never come across a smell issue.“

  6. M Money hung

    “$50 entry on Friday nights for DJ seriousness way too much to come here.“

    • K Ken

      “Since when have you ever paid $50 at 357. I never have and am always happy to go and use my loyalty card.“

  7. M Money hungry

    “Charging $50 Friday nights for a DJ sesh the place was a mess and has become Sydney's most expensive place and Sanua to go to being so greedy and charging lot more then ever before and no landline unbelievable, can’t even pay a landline bill.“

  8. N Na
    No more

    “$40 from Friday 7pm onwards for a weekend entry now just too much place smells so bad guys don’t come here.“

  9. S Stinky

    “Several ppl have complained about smell in level 3 and when we asked to have it cleaned up the guy on laughed like it was a joke or something smelt gross“

  10. F Fully
    Rip off

    “Changeing $50 for a Monday afternoon session seriously on what excuse then to provide unlimited fake zero beer and cheap cask wine when reopened last year the 1st day being open from a lockdown was only $19 for a week huge price difference in a year“

  11. J Josh
    Awesome Place

    “I visit here regularly each time never disappoints. Lots of keen guys there all time, have had many great experiences with guys here. Best times are the nude events they are lots of fun. Would recommend a visit.“

  12. E Elroy
    Sauna made in Heaven

    “I have eagerly visited twice upon my visit to Sydney and the most easiest location in CBD. I have had so much enjoyment on my couple visits and was lucky to come across some friendly guys just like their staff.. Met a guy from my own country we hanged out and joined others it was a Sauna made in Heaven It was extremely busy the day after Mardi Gras I will look forward again on my next visit?“

  13. S Stephen

    “It's always a pleasure to visit this sauna in Sydney and everytime I've been busy or not the staff are super efficient in keeping the place clean and at off times will ask if one is having a good time, the upstairs chill room and eats is a top idea. Sydney should have had that years ago...er dah dah hello! World class city...wake up you other venues) only one negative, you need a larger spa guys but overall worth every cent a visit.“

  14. S Shane

    “Every time I go there I'm not disappointed. I always enjoy myself with all kinds of men, and mmmmm some gorgeous bodies with nice equipment - I like them big. Well, 357 always delivers.“

  15. a ang
    wonderful experience

    “I have been here a few times. Generally weekday afternoon into early evening. There is a strong Asian presence, perhaps around half, which I love. GWM are perhaps over-represented by their more senior members, but there are certainly some good ones there. The space itself is great. First level has showers, steam room, dry sauna, jacuzzi. Steam room, in particular, a lot of action. Levels 2, and 3 are the cruising areas, cubicles. Generally spacious and clean. Love it!“

  16. E ExpressVPN KEY (Subscription 1 year, auto renewal)

    “Interesting reading!“

  17. S Steve
    Been going here for 15 years...

    “...keeps improving. Highly recommended!“

  18. P Peter

    “My first ever gay experience as I am bi/married. But must say, it was just great. Nice guys and I found one who I loved :) Maybe he as well me.“

    • G George

      “I’m bi/married too, I love meeting new guys each time I go there, clean also the men are very friendly too it makes it so relaxing with new people.“

  19. S Sean
    Saturday night, naked night!

    “Called in last Saturday night, about 7pm. It’s always good to see the keyboard almost empty when you are paying and Saturday nights seem to get a big crowd.

    A good mix of people old, young, fit and not so much. Most of the younger crowd were Asian, which I love, but it would be good to see a bit more variety. 357 is such a well run venue it attracts big crowds for its events. If your thinking of trying out a sauna, give 357 a go-but maybe not at the peak times as it could be a bit intimidating for a newbie.

    I love naked nights. Guys seem a lot less inhibited and ready to play. It was already packed when I got there. I barely had a chance to get my bearings before a muscular twenty something caught my eye.

    When it’s busy the staff do struggle to keep it clean, but they do their best and a little mess is to be expected when you have a few hundred men rooting all over the place!

    Awesome sauna - try to go to naked/blackout nights or one of their other events for the biggest crowds.“

  20. J Jacob

    “Visited for first time yesterday, had a great experience with variety of men (tops needed)
    Can’t wait to get back!“

  21. G Glenn

    “Went there last year, the owner told me the rules, being a bi, had lots of fun. Seen lots of things that were very interesting and tried them, too. I did not want to leave, but after 4 hours, sadly I had to.“

  22. P Peter
    nice fuck by more than one guys

    “I went there last weekend and it was super pleasant. I started it with a nice glory hole and finished by having fun three lovely old guys (not at the same time). You can easily get watched when someone is working on you which is what I like doing.“

  23. J Joan
    Sin city

    “Packed sunday afternoon 2 to 530pm, full of variety of occupants, doesnt feel to be the cleanest sauna but fun can be had in light or dark rooms. Staff fine, music a bit dance party but all in all a good spot.“

  24. M Mitch
    Best Sauna in Sydney...

    “I was on a Sunday night at 357. It had a lot of people in the place. Not only Asian or old, but also many young and different nationalities. I was very surprised and can ONLY write positive.“

  25. J James
    The only good sauna

    “My husband and I visited this sauna a couple of times and it was great. The staff is really friendly in the best way. The sauna area is small but very nice. The maze, video room, and the glory hole areas are great fun. There were many hot men there, and the other saunas in Sydney are not worth the visit. This is the only one worth spending the money on.“

  26. I Ian
    Friendly management who try for their customers

    “I have visited 357 many times and find the staff and management friendly. In Sydney this counts for a lot. (Heard of Sydney attitude?) The foam party is really well done and the top floor lounge with cafe and separate movie room are great for socialising and relaxing. The facilities are good although the locker areas always seem congested and short of space. Lounge and/or house music is never too intrusive. The facilities are good and reasonably well maintained. I would suggest expanding the wet areas with a bit more architectural imagination. Others might not agree. Less of the 1970s black paint and more variation in lighting woukd be good too. However in a city where this type of venue has either closed down or grown completely utilitarian, it is good to go somewhere welcoming, relaxing and with a bit of heart. Oh yes, you can have fun here too.“

  27. R Reggie

    “I have been here twice being a married person. Wow what an experience. the atmosphere was great and wandering around seeing what happens was amazing. Nice people and very relaxing. I felt comfortable being my first journey into a sauna. All in all what an experience and I look forward to going back to Sydney one day and dropping in again. Thanks to all at 357“

  28. P Peter
    One of the best sauna in the world

    “Packed... Foam party every Sunday 4pm, naked party every Wednesday midday hundreds of guys Sat nights also really busy, lots of white guys during the day great mix and clean and well run by gay men, its 2busy sometimes and manic but lovely staff and bar open Fri to Sunday for a beer. Loved it! Thai and Chinese speaking staff often at door very nice.“

  29. P Paul

    “Pushy customers can't understand why they keep on harassing after you say no thank you.“

  30. S Simon
    Best sauna for seniors and Asians

    “I'm a big daddy and love coming here as its Asian heaven. If your into chubby older men then you too will be happy. Best sauna for guys wanting older men and Asian guys.“

  31. R Rowan
    work and play

    “Came here 4-6pm on a Sunday. The place was like their website described. Definitely a lot of guys though not the triple digits advertised (which is good cause I can't imagine this place holding that many people!). Most guys appear to be Asian as well as more mature Caucasians (close to 100 total). The stand out for this place is the variety of activities you can do. Glory holes rooms, cinema room, chill out room, swings, live camera room, shackle rooms as well as your standard things. If variety is the spice of life then 357 is a spice rack!“
