    Lovely hostel to stay in, really clean and staff are friendly. Close to the beach and some shops. The beds are comfortable and the room had a fan which is good

    Nicest YHA I've been to by a country mile. Need to just put on some information about how to get to the hostel from the Greyhound stop, I walked quite abit before realising the tram drops off just at the bottom of the street. Suffers abit of a lack of atmosphere but it's still really really nice and clean

    Lugar extremamente limpo, staff sempre dispostos a ajudar e sempre cuidando do lugar. Localização perfeita, trem quase na porta, pouco minutos andando até a praia, até o ferry. Só achei que meu quarto especificamente não ficava trancado e isso nos deixou um pouco inseguros, mas eu me hospedaria novamente.

    Great hostel, loved the main common room, good place to come and relax. Ideal location and beds were sooo comfy. Would just advise to bring ear plugs for sleeping cause the walls are pretty thin and my neighbours had movies playing loud all night which kept me up.

    Very good hostel! About 50 meters from the beach and very friendly staff! Very big lockers with power point in it. Kitchen could have been a little cleaner but everything else was very clean.

    Nice hostel with decent accommodations. I didn’t do much in Newcastle besides the Coastal Walk and Bogey Hole so this was my chill time after leaving Sydney. The wifi here was amazing however and was the thing that stood out most to me lol. I got so much work and planning done. I would recommend this hostel for a couple nights if passing through Newcastle.

    It wasn’t 150m from the Greyhound bus stop. One of the reasons I booked it for was because it said it was.

    Not ideal for young backpackers as very weird atmosphere and environment, with much older people staying there, if you was young you wouldn’t want to stay in a mixed shared as would feel very uncomfortable, staff where lovely though and helpful
