We stayed here as we were on route to the Blue Mountains from Byron Bay. It is tucked away from the main high street with a lovely view of the hills and overlooking the river. It seems a throwback to the 60s in its whole outlook and is a very we'll run place with friendly staff and a good kitchen... More

I'm traveling Australia by myself by cycling. I decided to stay at Bellingen Backpacker before to visit the great Dorrigo National Park. Great warm accommodation. Nice people, great staff, excellent kitchen. I'm relax a lot myself and it was like to be in a great family. Very recommended!

I stayed 1 night at this YHA, with my boyfriend. We were in a dorm but with the low season, the only people in the room. The staff is really nice, and the atmosphere is "cool", we appriciate that. The kitchen is well furnished, there is a shelf with free food that anyone can take (or add more stuffs). Everything... More

YHA Bellingen is a quieter hostel in a quiet town. Our stay there was wonderful with brilliant staff and fellow travellers, and the cat was the cherry on top. The rooms are comfortable for those looking for just a nice bed for the cold night and there are shops and cafes just round the corner!

This is one of my most favourite hostels I've stayed in in Australia. The woman on reception was very friendly and talked to us kindly and with great local knowledge. The atmosphere of Bellingen consumed us when we were here and the hostel embodied it brilliantly; Buddhist tapestries on the walls, beautiful views from the verandah and the Wall of... More

Bellingen itself is such a cute town. We were driving down the coast from Brisbane to Sydney and I highly recommend stopping in Bellingen and staying here if you are doing the same. It is a small two-story hostel that overlooks the river- which is so cool. A great patio outside with hammocks, tables, and couches gives it a great... More

What an awesome place. Very cute Buddhist charm. Two story deck with hammocks overlooks the lush jungle. Staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. Rooms are clean. Not much in Bellingen, so this place was perfect for our 1 night stay (part of a road trip). Only (very minor) con is that the bunk beds are a bit wobbly. I was... More

We stayed 4 nights at this very special place. The house is an old stylish building with a beautiful veranda on ground level where everyone meets and socialises, much more than in other hostels. Upstairs is another veranda with an awesome view. The twin rooms are ok, the bathrooms are very well kept. It's a simple very friendly place where... More

There are so many good things to say about this YHA hostel it's difficult to know where to start. I arrived (and left) by train from the Urunga station, and although this is a fair distance from Bellingen it was great of the hostel to collect me and drop me back. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and the... More

Really nice cosy hostel. The kitchen was very clean for a backpackers hostel, and there was free tea and coffee and plenty of space to leave your food in the cupboards and fridges as it wasn't crowded at all. We booked a camping spot for 2 nights and it was great. It was a cute little sectioned off spot in... More
