Greatest hostel in the world! I stayed here for 2 months while working at a blueberry farm. Worked my last month as a cleaner for free accomodation. Brett and his wife are lovely. We spend Christmas here with our new family and it was truly amazing. It's a clean hostel with a fanastic pool for hot days. A huge thank... More

Stayed on a weekend trip. Female dorms were clean and facilities were excellent - pool, tv room, free bananas, towel hire and free boogie and surf board hire. Water pressure in showers were excellent and a supermarket and pharmacy across the road. Really close to the Jetty and train station. Front desk staff were super friendly and had arrangements for...

We had a very pleasant stay in the yha. Close to the beach, close to the railway station, close to shops and restaurants. Very helping and very friendly staff whose pleasure it is to provide you with total satisfaction. One of our bedlights didn' t work and we got another room!! We stayed in a room with private bathroom.

Cons: I've been travelling around Australia and staying in a lot oh YHAs and have always met great people and happy staff. Unfortunately the staff here let the place down as they just weren't friendly and unhelpful. Pros: Rooms a good size and shower was amazing.

We stayed in a private double with en suite. The person working on reception (Cari?) was very welcoming and took the time to tell us about the area etc. The room was a good size and clean. No air con but a ceiling fan and a good breeze through the window. Pool and common areas looked good although did not... More

Rooms here were ok but overall I wasn't very keen on the place. Bit of a weird location, not much seemed to be going on and I didn't like the atmosphere, it wasn't very welcoming. Parking on site and pool looked nice. Only had one night and slept badly enough that we were packed up and ready to leave about... More

I decided to stay couple night in small Coffs Harbour and I don't regret that. For some reason this hostel was full of people who just made me feel me so welcoming. Hostel staff is friendly and funny. Hostel is really clean as all YHA hostels are. Its big but still they have really warm atmosphere there. The only weird... More

A fairly big hostel, with good sized/clean bedrooms (smelt a bit damp, but not a big problem). Good sized lockers in rooms and comfy, stable bunk beds. Bathrooms could have done with a bit of a clean. The guy on reception was fairly grumpy and refused to give YHA members discount because I didn't book direct through YHA. It was... More

Stayed 3 Nights over new year with a family of 4 in a family room with ensuite. New year Always an interesting time in accommodation - not knowing the clientele. It was surprisingly quiet even though booked out. Remember this is a backpackers with groups of travellers and the kitchen can get busy but overall a good stay. Good price... More

Awesome facilities - there's free boogie boards and surfboards to use at anytime, pools excellent and clean with nice undercover wooden benches to chill and drink on, showers had fantastic pressure and decent sizing (overall bathrooms clean and nice), and hostel was very clean and maintained daily. Informative staff were friendly. Close to beach front, supermarkets, bottle shop and restaurants.... More
