I was robbed while staying here. $200 worth of belongings stolen from a locked bedroom. Security is very poor. Staff were apologetic but unable to help with matter. Told me to basically be more careful in future. I can't recommend staying here.

This hostel really makes you feel like you're at home! The staff are very accommodating and give you a map and a run down of what to do in Newcastle as well as a tour of the hostel when checking in. Anna & Mama Shar treat you as if you're one of their own. The room I stayed in was... More

We arrived at the hostel, intending to stay for just one night. The plan was then to go up to Port Stephens and do a dolphin swimming experience. It turned out that planning is not my strong suit. The experience begins at 5.30am, and the wonderful owner, Anna, informed us that there was no way we would get there in... More

Stayed in this hostel with some friends on the 2 of the 3 nights we were in Newcastle... not the best hostel experience for travellers based on the noise and the distance for everything except a supermarket. Staff were friendly and helpful though but wouldn't recommend as a place to stay. There are better places in East Newcastle (near the... More

Me and my partner stayed here for a few days about two weeks ago when we first arrived to Newcastle. We googled a hostel for one night and we picked this one by chance, boy were we glad we stumbled on this place. Upon making our booking on the train, the woman who runs the place informed us she would... More

The hostel is located a bit away from the city center, but there is a free bus going there all day. And it's close by the supermarkets and a nice mall. The rooms are very spacious and it's easy to see it used to be a home. The kitchen is nice and there is a good atmosphere. The hostel feels... More

I stayed here during The Lions tour in June and loved it! Yes, it was a little far from town but that wasn't much of an issue for me. Upon arrival I was greeted by the manager Anna who was just wonderful and kind. After a speedy check-in, she showed to to my room (a 4 bed mixed dorm). I... More

We were picked up from the station by a lovely lady who works there- an added bonus! because they weren't too busy at the time. Was a cute place, tidy and clean. Appreciated staff letting us know we had 30 mins left to... More

Good to stay! Nice manager, and everything was clean. We could lock our stuff after checking out. Next time again! Quite close to the center and very close to amazing stadium of New Castle United! Christoph
