Couldn't have been happier. Coffs is quiet but we had just come from Byron!


Didn't stay and we weren't able to cancel so general review


Average hostel, overpriced for what you get. Charging $35 a night with no aircon and a run down room seems a lot. Clean though just needs to be updated.


Lovely staff and really nice place, would stay again


Best hostel so far!!!!


This hostel is very far from the city center but really close to the beach. Very clean and good cooking facilities, you can rent bodyguards and surfboards for free. Staff is friendly and they arrange several pick ups and drop offs to the bus station which is quite far away (3k)


Nice place, great location! :)

This was the first hostel that I have ever stayed at. I was a little nervous at first but it had everything that we needed. The washrooms were not very clean but they reminded me of my dorm room bathroom in college. The beds were not the best, but we were there for a very short time. The internet would only work in the common areas and not in the room. Overall it was a great place to stay for just a few nights.

This is a home away from home. A lot of long termers that gives a family feeling. The staff is welcoming and helpful if You're there to find a job. A lot of free och really cheap activites and clean. Loved this hostel!


Nice place, quite quiet but staff were friendly and helpful


Decent hostel. Near the beach, near an IGA, but really expensive, so a bit of a walk to Coles. They do a good evening tour where you see the banana, kangaroos on the headlands with sea and beaches in the background for good pics. Only $10AU. Kitchens are clean and big, lounge area was comfy and big. Overall decent stay.


Quite dissappointed for a YHA really...staff seemed indifferent as to whether I was there or not. My dorm was an absolute mess with food scraps and dirty clothes and the combined smell in there was enough to make me sick! Also poor security, as the door to the dorm was chocked open when I arrived,I closed it, and it was chocked open again in the morning. Did the staff not see this?!? For a saturday night the hostel had no activities going on which resulted in zero atmosphere about the hostel.
