We extended our stay as we love this hostel so much! For someone who has enough from huge anonymous party hostels in noisy cities this is made for you! The staff is amazing, when we asked for the next 4WD rainforest trip (3 $!) they engaged and put our names on the list. Every day the hostel organises events (big banana trip, free quick surf lessons, Jetty Jumping, quiznights, cheap BBQ, GoonPong, etc.). Rooms are light and tidy, as well as all the other facilities. We'll miss you guys!!!

Having the best time! We originally only booked to stay 4 nights but 10 days later we are still here. Everything is fabulous, the facilities/activities are brilliant. The stuff you can rent is really good, we have rented a kayak a few times to take down the creek opposite the hostel so nice. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the atmosphere within the hostel is brilliant made some great friends here, the location is good and value for money excellent. Can't recommend enough.
Free internet! Close to everything! Stuff is very friendly and they organize daily activities!
Aussitel is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. You get so much free stuff, there are two free/really cheap activities a day. I had a go at paddle boarding (free) & 4WD ($3). The staff are so friendly & helpful, it has a chilled atmosphere, spotless kitchen, communal area, room & bathrooms cleaned daily. Its such a bargain I wish I could have stayed longer - its perfect xx
Great staff! Really nice guys and friendly. Had awesome time with them. Hostel is clean and location is really good. Lots of free activities you can do (surfboards, kayaks...)!!! Kitchen works and there's enough fridges so no problems where you keep your food! We were originally going to stay 3 nights here but now there's gonna be almost two weeks that we're here. Love this place! One of the best hostels we've stayed in Australia!
Staff were the best thing about this place, so helpful and friendly. My room was quite hot and stuffy the night I stayed and it only had one small fan but I guess that's more the weather's fault not the hostel's! Everything else was great.
Definitely one of our favorite hostels so far! The staff is just so friendly and personal.there is a big open common room with the kitchen, tables and a big tv corner. They have a lot of movies you can request. The rooms are clean enough and you have got enough space for your stuff. The only thing that could be better was the showers/toilets, but that gets compensated by the 2 (almost) free daily activities that were fun and the free use of computers, free wifi and free surfboards, kayaks etc.
Extremely friendly and social Hostel with everything you need in this area: closest to the beach, Supermarkets´+Bars around, free WiFi as well as exquisite gear you can use. Everyday there are nice activities such as the sunset Kangaroo walk or the sunset Kajaktour. The Staff is super friendly and picks you up from the Busstation and can provide any information. When in Coffs Harbour, stay at Aussitel Backpackers! but book ahead, it is likely to be fully booked!
Absolutely brilliant place to stay, close to beach, and local shops, the use of equipment for boogie boards, surf kayaks etc gave me the opportunity to do things I normally wouldn't have been able to do on my trip.
Popped in for a few days and had a great time. Close to everything, neat, clean, friendly staff and great facilities.

What a nice hostel! Enjoy the activities, the good organisation of the staff and the international atmosphere. It was the best hostel on the east coast we stayed in. Thanks and applause for the owners!
Great hostel! Staff made me feel welcome and are really helpful answering all my questions. Location is close to the beach, supermarkets and great cafés. Lots of fun daily activities planned. Free wifi is a bonus. Planned to stay a few days and have extended more than two weeks!
Too many long term workers at the hostel which means people tend to stick together in groups, difficult to get to know people. Bathrooms were not clean. Free WiFi was good and good activities to get you active and involved in the area. Staff were helpful and friendly, telling you places to go. Pool could do with some sun loungers.
Great hostel, friendly staff and helpful. Free wifi, surf boards, sea kayaks, wet suits, 4x4 driving, cheap car hire and more! So with all free stuff we has loads to do as well as jetty jumping! One of my fave places on east coast. Only had 3 days but could of stayed a week!
Lots of free or low cost activities available at the hostel. Staff do a great job of getting people involved.
