    I only stayed at Aussitel for a couple of nights but really enjoyed my stay there. The hostel was extremely clean and I appreciated being picked up from the Greyhound bus stop. Chris and Sam were so lovely and helpful, giving me ideas about what to do whilst in Coffs Harbour. The hostel had a variety of things on including a morning of kayaking or paddle boarding for free and they also took us to Emerald Beach for sunset to see the wild kangaroos and for a bbq. Would recommend to stay here

    Super friendly staff and I loved how they did tours and activities every day morning and evening. Large spacious kitchen that was clean. Very open panned so good for meeting people, just lacks a bar. They do free hire for paddle board and kayaks which is fun!

    The bedroom was clean and comfortable. The common rooms were nice but dominated by TV. Innadequate space in the kitchen. Many smokers in the outdoor undercover area made it disgustung for eating meals. Great Gas hobs. Great that gas turned off at night, while kitchen still open and food and cuppa still accesssable in the night. Kitchen sinks filthy. Nice enough staff but not enough of them/ear buds in. Many long stayers, a weird vibe, not so inclusive even though everyone was polite enough.

    Be aware! This hostel is a party hostel and the residents are long term so it's clicky. We had one of the first rooms and were kept awake by drunk people in the lounge/kitchen shouting and playing music till 3.30am and then people were up at 7.30am. We were next to the fire door between the rooms and common area which is very squeaky and slams shut everytime someone goes through. There was no point to complain to staff as it would have been us vs the rest. (Tip:Get a room down the corridor)
