The place is very nice, staff is very friendly and helpfull. I arrived very late at night and I had to wake up the staff and I felt very guilty but they were all very nice and still friendly. They also helped me with things to do around here. They offer free wifi and free boards for surfing. All rooms,... More

During my stay in Australia I stayed at the Aussitel in total of 5 months. The atmosphere at the hostel is amazing: activities such as tours to see kangaroos, game nights, bonfire, jetty jumping are organized twice everyday by the staff, you can hire equipment for free (proper surf boards, body boards, kayaks, fishing rods etc) and you can find...

Aussitel was one of the best hostels in Australia I have stayed in. there is a really lay back atmosphere there and they really take care of their backpackers. I was planning to stay at Coffs harbour for two days and ended up extending my stay here! They rent out surfboards and paddleboards for free, they do an kangaroo tour... More

Loved everything about my stay at this hostel, such a great vibe! Use of free surf boards and other water sports equipment was so good. Could not fault this hostel! Especially the staff, Nick made us feel as if we had known him for years from the moment we arrived including us in all the activities. A great way to... More

'ONE MORE WEEK' is the well known chant at Aussitel, because once you've stayed at the hostel and experienced the friendly atmosphere, most backpackers tend to extend their stay! I've been here for 3 weeks now & i've had an amazing time at the hostel. I've made some real good friends, including the staff Nick, Rob, Kay, Levi & not... More

As a couple we have found hostels hit and miss whilst travelling up the East Coast, and have much preferred the more chilled out places. Aussitel however was a bit different, it had the immediate vibe of a party place upon arrival with the communal area very busy and loud but we were immediately welcomed. Upon being picked up from...

Had made my reservation for a week by telephone, everything seemed very easy going then. As I was going to arrive at night, I let them know and once more, made sure they understood which date I was going to arrive. They promised to leave an envelope with a key and room number for me and provided me with the... More

Aussitel was one of the best hostels we stayed at in Australia, not necessarily because its facilities were better, but because it was so friendly! The staff were great, really informative and go to great lengths to make sure everyone feels welcome and included. There's a great social scene here, and it's no wonder people often end up staying much... More

The staff were really friendly here and the lady that picked us up from the bus stop was very informative of the local area. It is in a good location not far from the beach and they offer loads of free equipment like canoes etc. The Wi-Fi was free and it was really fast! Not loads of rooms here but... More
