    This hostel and it’s staff are amazing. Super friendly, great location 5 min from the beach, grocery and bottle shop across the street, organized activities. Came for 1 night and ended up staying 5, perfect place to stop between Sydney and Byron Bay. (Also, the post from the person below is total garbage.)

    Really great hostel, perfectly positioned Dan and the team were super friendly I stayed in room 203 with ensuite. The bed was comfy and even though the room was near the main street I hardly heard the street traffic. The ceiling fan worked a treat. The pool is a great addition not just for relaxing but also to socialise (I was a solo traveller) I'll definitely visit again, thanks YHA and the Coffs people :)

    Staff were friendly and attentive and helpful. Bedrooms or dorm were acceptable and clean. Only concern we had was the ladies toilets needed more toilet paper and even after two notifications, it was not refilled. Kitchen area and bathrooms were very clean and spacious. Salt water pool was a bonus as chlorine is harsh. Thank you for a nice stay.

    Great hostel. The staff are all so lovely, especially Daniel the owner. There is lots of stuff to hire and do in the hostel. Only improvement could have been security because the door to our room didn’t lock.

    I was here over Christmas, by myself, and I was surprised they didn't have any events planned at the hostel. A little disappointed as Coff's Harbour pretty much shuts down so there wasn't anything to do elsewhere. Staff was nice and facilities were clean.

    Mixed opinions of this hostel - staff are lovely and helpful and the location is great for the beach. However, only 2 of 8 hobs work in the kitchen, no kettle or working boiling water supply and we had a small amount of food taken out of our fridge bag by another guest. There were numerous cobwebs in our room and on the stairwell which isn’t pleasant.

    A staff ended up in my room drunk and having s** on the lower bunk under me keeping me awake from 11pm until 1:30am. I asked the staff to leave several times and was verbally attacked by them both. Staff finally left the room in the morning once I threatened to go find the manager, but I just got out of there asap. Honestly it was my worst hostel experience in over 5 years of travel. I will not be staying at a YHA
