We had two double rooms reserved. We knew we'd arrive late. So we called at 5pm to say we'd arrive late. We arrived 10ish. Met 2 members of staff. Completely doped. They had given our two rooms away to other people. The person in charge, couldn't wake up the other people from reception who had the key to a spare... More

I would totally recommend it. Very friendly atmosphere, the outside area has the nicest view and many hammocks, comfortable seats etc. I saw a couple of baby kangaroos near the garden. Very near to the town and super chilly. One thing that could be improved: cleanliness. The toilet was pretty disgusting. But unfortunately most backpackers have this issue. Other than... More

The staff at this hostel are so friendly, helpful and genuinely want to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. Rooms are spacious and clean. The communal areas have everything you need including a tv and playstation for those lazy days. Set just outside Nimbin, the location was perfect. If all hostels were this good, it would be a miracle!

Our band stayed in 3 different double rooms for 1 night and loved it! The garden room near the fire pit is the best room - fabulous view, fire pit, friendly wallabies, comfy bed, great tent. Beautiful site, great pool, lots of hang out areas so you dont feel cramped at all - really a resort at a budget price.... More

Some time has passed, so I write from a calm mind. Originally I was thinking to stay there 7+ days. Features: Large pretty basic dorm room; which had old marks on the floor. It needed an industrial scrub. Bathroom/shower good, kitchen very good; lounge/tv area small but comfortable. Pleasant location; almost rain forest feel. Experience: Get woken up about 7am... More

I stayed here for just one night and was seriously considering rearranging my travel plans to stay longer. The rooms were huge, the kitchen was decent, there was a nice living room type thing with a couch and TV with DVDs and a PS3. There were free breakfast pancakes in the morning. The outside area was a series of paths... More

Yes, yes it does. My husband and I were booked to stay at Nimbin Rox for only 2 nights, we ended up staying almost 2 weeks. This is one of the best YHA's I've been to. The staff are all friendly and easy going, and they will help you anyway they can. There are plenty of things that this hostel... More

The scenery, atmosphere, accommodation, staff and owners. All of it was brilliant. 3rd night free, free pancakes, free and good, fast wifi. Unable to walk anywhere without encountering hammocks/tree swings or giant cushions. Staying here to relax and recharge is a must. I will definitely go back. Thanks Nimbin Rox YHA!
