I stayed here for 3 nights. The female dorm room was as you expect with bunk beds but they also had lockers and coat hooks too. The bathrooms and showers were clean. There was space for you to place your dry clothes and change once out of the shower cubicle and still have privacy. The hostel has a separate TV... More

Good hostel, very functional with a clean kitchen and nice common areas. We visited in winter and it was very quiet, almost eerily so, there didn't seem to be anything social organised by the hostel. It's easy to walk into town and there's a good car park at the back. The bed covers could do with updating

Suited our needs perfectly, even had a TV and ensuite in our double room. Amenities are nearby, this place is very well located right down by the beach, with restaurants nearby. Also supermarket, bottle-o and pharmacy, ec. Kitchen was clean, wifi cost money but I heard they were transitioning to making it free for guests after the next month so... More

I know I'm a little older than 'regular' backpackers, but I hate sitting in motel rooms, staring at myself in the mirror, when I travel by myself. I know the beds are going to be too short (at 6 ft 1 in, a double bed just isn't going to cut it) I hate the inherent snootiness with B&Bs. And I... More

Coffs Harbour YHA is excellent! Extremely clean, good clean bedrooms, spacious kitchen, free pick up from the bus stop where the greyhound drops you off and lovely staff. You don't need long in Coffs Harbour as there isn't a lot to do but I definitely recommend staying at the YHA. One of the best I've stayed in!

Great location. Great atmosphere. Great facilities. Lovely counter at staff. But when the sun goes down and the beast appears as night manager. Oh my God. I would've happily rated five stars until she reared her rude head. Please don't yell at us to be quiet and then be heard yelling and screaming at your own family. Glad I wasn't... More

Great hostel, kitchen is spotless, rooms and toilets are very clean as well! Very well located near the beach and shops/bars. MOST staff are very friendly especially Cori on reception who is very welcoming and would do anything to help! However its only downfall is the night manger- she is extremely rude and made me feel unwelcome on my stay... More

Hi Calum Thanks for choosing Coffs YHA. Noise at night is a really tricky one as hostel staff need to balance people wanting to have fun and the needs of guests trying to sleep in the rooms above, as was the case here. More

Great hostel and great atmosphere. I met lots of nice people to travel with in coffs. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Mostly nice staff except for the night manager, who is very rude for no reason. Would recommend a visit though.

Hi ben Thanks for coming to Coffs YHA and your review. Unfortunately, your group was being noisy so the night manager needed to ask you to lower the volume a bit as other guests were being disturbed. This is part of trying to balance the needs of all guests at night. More

We stayed at this hostel almost 3 years ago and enjoyed it so much we stayed again this year. The hostel itself is amazing - lovely kitchen and the best, hottest, most powerful showers and cleanest toilets we've come across in a hostel! However, we were downstairs in the cosy common room area and a group of travellers were chatting... More

Hi James Thanks for your review and staying at Coffs YHA. The comfort of all guests is really important to us and so we did have to ask your group to keep the noise down as it was after 11pm.

Having travelled to Coffs Harbour overnight arriving 06.30am unlike the other hostels I was the only one not by a courtesy bus furthermore I was told I was not allowed access to my room until 13.30 and had to store my luggage in the room which had no lock or functioning light!
