Travel Gay Reviews of Sydney SaunaLeave Review

    Rip off and rudenesses

    “Staff very rude advised me one price but didn’t tell me there was card fee on top for using card what a joke this place is and had a smart ass response when you question anything avoid this place full stop.“

    First time. It was okay, I guess.

    “First time to a bathhouse ever. I'm an Asian twink, not really sure there's a place for me. The sauna wasn't that packed, got to give a few oral sex but clients were mostly in their 50's and on the chubby side. I like bears but the average age was a bit too high for me. I went on Sunday at 12 but I couldn't help but wonder if the cheap admission would only attract certain people? Fairly nice facilities but too dark in places, I hesitated to make a move in case I got closer and ran into a geriatric. I wanted some advice before I went in from staff, but nope.. give me my money, here's the towel. Goodbye.“

    Excesive volumen in music plus unfriendly staff

    “I've been 6 times in the past 3 weeks, the venue is clean, rooms are comfortable, spa is wonderful. BUT, it seems difficult to the Manager to understand WHY customers go to a Gay Sauna?. Probably 99.7% to have FUN, others like to watch adult films, using the internet facilities, etc.
    But it's a GAY SAUNA, not a GAY DISCOTHEQUE, from a business point of view simply can not understand the need to play LOUD music. People cannot talk freely and haven't seen anybody dancing. Icing on the cake has been the DJ playing on Sundays at 1 pm, yes almost lunch time and using the ONLY area to have something to eat or a simple coffee. The music was already loud, now is louder.
    Went on Friday and almost nobody was there, I decided to leave losing my money and I went to 357. Wonderful and polite people at reception, small dressing area but who cares?, it's a GAY Sauna, rooms clean and a big variety, people nice and 5 times in numbers. Age of customers average 35 probably and they can enjoy and talk without suffering the Disco music.
    Don't you think you are doing something wrong at Sydney Sauna?
    And talking about manners, when the reception guys say hello to you, please feel lucky. If you have the bad luck of finding the "olive" skin guy at reception, rudeness will be guaranteed. But nothing has been done and every time they have less customers.“

    Good place to have fun with a medium and mature age audience.

    “Well organised in general, wonderful spa and good rooms, comfortable in general. Staff don't seem to know that we customers pay their salaries, with one ore two exceptions they are not willing to even say hello when you arrive. The music is too loud and has been mention to the staff endless times.“

    “I was there two nights ago and out of the 15 people 8 yes 8 would have been wired - people talking incessantly and all over place - it’s getting worse. A truly disappointing experience.“

  6. V V

    “The cleanliness was maintained throughout the day. At times, it got busier and customers need to be considerate; dispose used items properly, not just in this club but also in other public areas, eg. public toilets, buses, streets etc.

    There's a mix of guys and if there at the right time, the right guys will be there. Some times, when there're too many guys, nothing happens because everyone is going after everyone and cabins are occupied most of the time.

    As for the staff, I haven't had much contact with them (made payment at the reception and I'm on my own). Actually, it's beneficial to be friendly to any hospitality staff. When no one is in the club, they might tell you. I use this connection where ever I go and it works, eg. in the plane, restaurant etc.“

    Best facilities in Sydney - Why isn't it busier?

    “Sydney Steam has by far the best, most modern, fit out of anyone the Sydney sauna. However, the clientele still seems to be the older crowd from before it was upgraded. I'm not sure if it's not being marketed well, but I'm sure if more people knew about it a younger more diverse crowd would choose this sauna over the others.“

  8. I Ian
    Friendly? Not on your life.

    “A sparkling facility marred by poor management. I will never go back.“

  9. P Peter
    I am 50 I was the youngest there LOL

    “Great if your into older gentlemen like me, I however am not so great fitout but no Asian guys at all and I went on the weekend night. Guy long blond hair very rude.“

  10. J John
    clean new place, nice staff

    “The place is super nice, the staffs are also very nice as well. Too bad I only see old guys (60 up), there were about 20-30 people when i visit on Tue evening. All of them, and when i say "all" I wasn't joking, have age more than 60 up.

    Only 2 Asians guy that younger, one about 40 another could be 30 something but not very attractive.

    Try to pick a weekend, maybe the crowd is better.“

    “Visited on Tuesday and was great, friendly and very clean, found it good value and the new cafe menu is excellent, around very pleasant, staff helpful and well mannered also.“

  12. D David
    Is the spa working and ablutions ?

    “Last time I was there only one toilet and shower no spa - -could not understand the guy at the front counter when I paid as to what was happening out the back then I'd realised my mistake and thought what a mess - --just tried calling the listed phone no it's been disconnected wtf - -if it's been a busy night refill the soap and replace the toilet paper ..... really... customers shouldn't need to ask....“

  13. J Jay
    Great venue with no customers, badly run

    “Ive been to this place a few times and its the same every time. Hardly any people, it stinks of smoke, the techno music is really loud and tonight the spa was cold. Usually the steam room doesn't work but there's always a problem.

    The dolt working on the front counter didn't tell me the spa wasn't working tonight before I went in. This is typical of the staff. Rude and disinterested gay guys who don't care.

    How anyone can have fun in an environment with loud techno music playing is beyond me.

    Don't waste your time or your money on this place. “
