Greetings all, I lived in Berkeley Hostel from 1954 to 1956. Like many families we obtained a Housing Commission home in Berkeley and members of my family still live there today. It is great to have a forum about hostels which became our first homes in Australia.

I agree with you.Len has set this site up and feel lucky to have it.We were at Berkeley later than you were 1960-61-62.
We did stay there briefly for two weeks in 1956 when we were transferred back to Sydney from Melborne but had a couple of weeks holiday in Wollongong staying at Berkeley.
Hope you post a few memories. Smile
