    Really nice place right on the beach, everyone works there so it's hard to make friends unless you are there for a long period of time.The staff do tend to put all the short stay guests in the same room so it can be a really fun stay.

    A bit unclean and facilities weren't the flashiest but more than made up for by the super friendly and fun atmosphere and the location next to the beach.

    Good place if you want to party with travelers. Lots of people working for their visa at farms during the day. Budget place for younger people. Its not so clean, but there are other good features like being by the sea and cheap discounts on meals at the bistro.

    I'm 56 years old and was told I was to old, luckily I was the only person in the room that night so was aloud to stay, no mention anywhere of age allowance, was going to stay 2 nights but had to leave as others were coming into the room next night. Dissappointed.

    Overall, not bad, good enough for a short stopover. The rooms are clean and beds comfy, but very tight and hot. Its a motel where the rooms have been converted to dorm rooms. Some of the guests staying there are workers at nearby picking farms, and are kind of dodgy and bring down the overall vibe of the place a lot. The staff is great, free shuttles to the coach station, and direct access to great beach.

    Good value for money! Adjoining Bar/restaurant/club obviously has had all the investment, lively place to have drinks but music on very loud until late with rooms right next door! Hostel rooms quite tired but functional, could do with some air con...

    The area was very noisy until late at night (towards 11pm) and also in the morning (from 5am) as other guests congregated and talked loudly. There was no concern for other guests.

    The bar/restaurant on site was great, meal deals for $12.50 although there was good self catering facilities on site, it was good to have options. The bar was taken good care of but The hostel area was very dirty and covered in dirty clothes even outside rooms without long term workers. Laundry facilities were helpful and the TVs were nice to have. Direct beach access and not far from the shopping centre was convenient. The staff were great and offered free transport to and from the bus stop.

    OK hostel for a stop off. I enjoyed my time here but the ratings are reflective of the categories. No lockers so no security. Staff hard to find. Think I only saw any member of staff once in 48 hours. Guests are all long term workers but they were welcoming. Good kitchen and WiFi etc. Great for a 1 or 2 night stop off in Coffs.
