    OMG! The must stay place in Coffs! Clean facilities with free/ or very cheap activities every morning, afternoon and night (3 a day). The owners were amazing, they pick you up personally from the bus station at 6am and were the sweetest couple! Very much a home away from home place. We had a paddle board lesson for free, and the man who owns it even took us to go see some wild kangaroos and I'd an expect on them allowing us to get up and personal. Very friendly place and is the best hostel.

    Sheree was super friendly and helpful to us, really helpful with showing us around and telling us about the best parts of the area and where’s best to eat. Would definitely stay here again if we come back to Coffs Harbour.

    The owners were super nice and really helpful. They looked after our bags all day, gave us tips on things to do and places to eat, offered us kayaks/paddle boards for free, and picked us up and dropped us off at the bus stop. Only stayed one night but wish we’d stayed longer!

    Good sized kitchen and common areas (indoor and outdoor), decent sized beds and pretty comfy, owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Convenient location, lots of parking if you've got a car/campervan, very close to a nice lookout point for a great view of the beach/sea/mountains.

    It was a weekend night when my friends and I stayed there so there was music and people drinking, but it was fine, rooms safe and clean. The female bathroom two of the toilets of three the flush didn’t work but I think it was just that night.

    Fine hostel for what you're paying, but a lot of long termers. Location wasn't great, but close enough to the main attractions. They offer a free shuttle and luggage storage until 3 after your checkout. You have to pay 5 dollars extra if you want to store your luggage after that. That sucks. Next to that everything was fine.

    The bedrooms and bathrooms were nice, the owners were lovely and the free stuff they have on offer is great but the downfall of this hostel is unfortunately the kitchen. The sinks were blocked every time we went to use them so they were full of dirty water and bits of food which was really quite disgusting. From speaking to some of the long term guests (of which they are the majority) apparently this is always the case. If this was fixed then would give this hostel much better rating.
