This is an odd hostel, different to all the others we stayed in Australia. It's like a huge old style house with lots of rooms. Dorms were ok but my main issue was the amount of cockroaches that I saw rubbing about in almost every room, it made me uneasy at night thinking they might crawl over me. Anyway wouldn't... More

The hostel is old and looks like its last upgrade was a few decades ago. bathroom and kitchen are clean, location is good. I mainly have issue with the cleaniness of the bedroom. found bugs on the bed. last time i stayed in YHA canberra which they provided a sheet to cover the blanket. Not in Newcastle. luckily i have...

We only stayed here one night as part of our roadtrip from Brisbane to Sydney and stayed in a 4 person female dorm. This house brought me back to my days of living in a sorority house- The old architecture, dark wood and open entrance was awesome ( I think it was an old men's club). Anyways, facilities were clean... More

Had a faultless 3-night stay at this wonderful YHA. I booked a single room at the reasonable rate of $60 and was glad I did. The room was spacious, comfy, clean, quiet and had a TV for a spot of luxury. All of the communal areas are similarly impressive and the hostel itself is a beautiful old building. Managed to... More

Stayed here for two nights over the weekend and I was very disappointed with the standard of this hostel. The staff were nice enough but the room looked like it hadn't been decorated in decades. The beds were uncomfy and there was little to no atmosphere in the place. The location is good for the beach but if you enjoy... More

Stayed here overnight while seeing relatives in the region and very impressed with the friendly relaxed service, room cleanliness, location and all round unpretentiousness of the place. The Newcastle Beach YHA doesn't pretend to be anything its not, it's cheap and cheerful, it's basic, but comfortable and it's clean. Constructively, the common space downstairs could do with some better lighting... More

Really enjoyed my stay at YHA Hostel – the building was charming and very close to the beach and the cafe life of Newcastle. My room was spacious and uncrowded and although it was June and a little cool there was still enough guests in house to create a great atmosphere.

I stayed here for two nights, arrived early morning and as it was quiet could get a bed promptly which was great! Rooms are basic in varying size, bathrooms are clean! Kitchen clean with what's need to cook a meal. They appear to arrange lots of activities! You can walk to the main shopping area and there are free buses... More

The beach YHA in Newcastle has a GREAT location near fun little cafes, wonderful shops and the beach! The building is gorgeous with grand stairs and a common room to die for. The family room was simple and relatively clean. No closet space or fridge which is fairly common in similar places. Very clean toilets and showers. I really enjoyed... More

This was a pleasant hostel. The staff were very helpful. The twin room was great, twin beds rather than bunks and a flat screen tv. The female toilets and showers were spotless and never busy. We didn't use the communal lounge but it never seemed to have any life in it. We used the kitchen once, it was fine but... More
