Perfect hostel. Rooms were very clean, kitchen an dcommon room great. Location is near to greyhound bus stop but a 30 min walk to the beach but it's a nice walk. Really liked this hostel, would be amazing if it was in a different place than Coffs! The only strange thing was we were basically the only people at the hostel!! So can't rate the atmosphere .

It's funny reading the reviews of this place-i found central backpackers to be clean,friendly and fun! Not quite a party central,but that's not what I was looking for after travelling byron bay.i have enjoyed having your own room during the hostels quiet period,but I can imagine it being lively when the fruit picking season arrives.The staff are extremely helpful with lots of local knowledge.the kitchen facilities and the free 24/7 WiFi is great to.

Fine for a night, but nothing great about it. Also good to know is that the parking is limited, the only parking is a 2P area.

It was actually a really good stay. Everything is clean, the hostel is in the middle of the city centre and every room got a balcony. At first I was a bit disappointed because I needed 30 minutes to check in. But the staff was in general really nice and always helpful. Sadly they're not many people in this hostel so the atmosphere isn't great. But I don't understand the bad reviews, it'd be a great hostel if they're would be more people !:-)

Upon arrival we had to wait 15 minutes to check in as all the staff were in a meeting. The rooms were fine, comfy beds but the kitchen was quite small and poorly stocked with equipment. Okay for a nights stopover.

Filthy kitchen. Rubbish not emptied. Microwave dirty.Fan in room 8 didn't appear to work. Generally untidy and shabby. Rubbish still under beds-not thoroughly checked/cleaned.

Overall ok for 1 night, no air con. Wifi was good, good restaurant underneath however the hostel kitchen itself was ok. Very quiet, like a ghost hostel.

Really nice, clean hostel. Short walk from the greyhound bus stop, they let us in at 7am and checked us in early. Guy who works there is really nice, got great recommendations for what to do in coffs. Rooms and bathroom are really clean, only problem is there was no aircon and bedroom got a bit hot overnight. It's above a hotel which does a really good $9 menu, a near a cheap Irish bar too. Plus a short walk from coles and the Coffs Harbour mall. 20 minute bus ride from the jetty beach.
