This was only a one night stopover for me so I didn't deal much with the staff or get to experience the activities. In late and out early. I think this is a great place to stay if you need a good nights sleep, there is barely any noise. All the people I met were lovely and it feels like... More

We were originally meant to stay in Coffs Harbor for 4 days, 9 days later we are still here. Aussitel is one of the best hostels we have stayed in not only is it such good value for money there is also such a good atmosphere here and with free/really cheap activities to do in the morning and evening. It's... More

Hostel is clean, with reasonable facilities if a little dated. The staff however were extremely rude and wouldn't let us stay in the hostel till our transport arrived to leave Coffs Harbour despite being made to pay $5 to stay that day. This 'rule' was not mentioned on arrival and one member of staff in particular was very rude when... More

You forgot to mention that your transport left Coffs Harbour the following day after you checked out. We allow guests to stay until 11 pm (23:00). That means guests can stay in the hostel for another 13 hours after they check out. Guests can continue to use all the facilities for the rest of the day. We even give guests... More

Great place to stay, atmosphere was good, staff were friendly, the daily activities were really good (especially the BBQ for $4) .. Also they have free renting of surf boards, kayaks etc, and the cheapest surf lessons I've seen in Oz so far!

Great value hostel, includes free Kayak, Surf Board, Canoe hire etc, Over the road from a great creek, although make sure you hold on tight to the rope swing! Friendly staff, great atmosphere all night - $4 BBQ was spot on too. We were in a camper, so didn't stay in the rooms, but best hostel we stayed at.

I booked in here to stay for one night and ended up staying for 4. This is a great little hostel with friendly staff, activities planned everyday and heaps of free stuff including wifi. Dorm beds were cheap too. Based on my experience i would recommend it to anyone travelling solo. The place has a good feel about it.

Had a wonderful time here. We've travelled the east coast for a month and still thought this was the best hostel we stayed in! The staff are friendly and helpful and everyone in the hostel makes you feel welcome. It was nice to be able to relax and enjoy the use of all the freebies - body boarding is a... More

Good value hostel, cheaper than most further north up the east coast. The chap at reception was really helpful, providing a map and a long list of things to do in the area. The kitchen was a decent size as was the 6-share dorm room we were in. In the evening, the guy from reception came around asking anyone if... More

Great that they pick up from the grey hound bus - only problem was that we were than abandoned at 6am and had to wait a few hours until reception opened when really all you wanted was to sleep. As for location - Coffs Harbour is bigger than you think! You can not find a location that is close to... More
