My girlfriend and I arrived at the Hoey Moey in answer to an ad to work on a farm for days towards our 2nd year visa. We stayed for a week. Getting the bad stuff out of the way first, the hostel only placed adds to fill up their beds with no real intention of finding you work. (I am... More

Stayed in the double room with ensuite quite satisfactory for the price good value. Went into the hotel section for dinner waiting time was three quarters of an hour as it was extremely busy which is understandable delay but the food salt-and-pepper squid was inedible almost left 90% on the plate. Would not eat there again but would stay there... More

This hostel was recommended to us by a staff member at a different hostel; and we're a bit sorry that we took the recommendation. The staff here are lovely and kind people, but the hostel leaves much to be desired. Firstly, there are only two busses from Sydney - one arrives at the hostel around 04.45, and one at 05.25......

Thanks Ilana for taking the time to give us some feedback. In the past month Greyhound Australia did not run a day time bus service from Sydney to Coffs Harbour. We spoke to Greyhound and the good news is that they are going to run a bus throughout the day again from 16th July onwards leaving Sydney at 7am arriving... More

Room was ok for overnight stay. Clean, functional although no seating or table - purely a sleep and shower option. Shower was roomy with plenty of flow flow of hot water. The room I had was afflicted with excess vanilla based cleaner. Days later I still Snell and taste the vanilla. This alone is a good enough reason for me... More

I arrived by myself in January and am still here to this day, I found myself permanent regional work which assisted me with my 88 days. The hostel/motel is a moments walk from the beach with a great bar and restaurant just opposite. Events for backpackers during the day and night, whilst the bar holds its own events throughout the...

The hostel is fine, the beds are comfy and clean, you share the facilities with only your roommates. The kitchen is a bit poor equipped but the fact that you can walk to the beach in less than one minute makes up for this. Also, there are meals available for $7.50 We had a perfectly fine one night stay here

This was advertised as a room with three beds for $240 a night. Booked it for two nights. Upon arrival it was actually a tiny space with two bunk beds and a single bed crammed in. No table or chairs. A filthy little wash room. I was expecting something decent just going on the price. No AC, not even a... More

You booked a triple room with us through Booking.com. We have received hundreds of bookings through this website and we never had a guest complaining about the room being fitted with bunk beds. We have dorms rooms, triple and quad rooms which are all fitted with bunk beds and we also offer private rooms which are fitted with single and... More

I have stayed here a few times for work reasons, the rooms are basic as can be, there is no air conditioning or heating, the rooms could use a real good scrub, and are not worth the $70 a night (off season) they charge for a single, the backpackers party most of the night so if you have a room...

Can't think of many pros about the motel rooms other than being close to a beach and being relatively cheap (still quite expensive). Cons include: No air con in room and only air flow comes from windows that are covered by curtains (unless you want no privacy). Room was quite dirty, bins were not emptied and had to replace one...
