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

Stayed for two nights over the weekend while visiting friends in town and was happy with the accommodation, I was in room eight which was fantastic as it is upstairs with a great view! I enjoyed being in the communal areas for breakfast and speaking with the different characters staying there. All the people are really nice. On the other... More

Friendly and relaxed but they don't tell you about the fee to stay after check out and to be driven to the bus (even though I booked by phone and made it clear we were on the bus). People wandered in from the street and walked all around the hostel "looking for their friends" so lock up everything in the... More

We stayed downstairs in room 2 for one night and ended up leaving the house and sleeping in the van around 11pm. It is noisy noisy noisy! If you must stay here (and I can see why you would be tempted - its a great location) - don't stay in room 2. Its next to the bathroom and the kitchen.... More

Staff were very kind and most helpful. Even though I was only there for 2 days I was offered free pickup to and from the train station, a heavily discounted tour of the surrounding area, and as much information on the town and area as I wanted. It was a 5-minute walk to the river which was a lovely place... More
