“wished we had stayed longer.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

we stayed her for one night on a trip from the gold coast and as soon as we arrived and saw the room i wished we had booked for longer but we had a tight schedule.anyway the hostel is just outside of nimbin and is a lovely walk while it is still bright.the area is really secluded and after spending a few days previous in sydney it was a lovely change.we booked a double private room and i had such a great sleep,the beds are very comfy.staff are friendly and chatty and it is really good value for money.i would love to stay here againif i ever get a chance to travel to that part of oz again.they have a nice kitchen living room area and outside bbq area and they also have free tea and coffee available for guests.even just for the scenery and wildlife alone its worth heading here for a day or two.

This hostel is the best i have stayed in so far. A little bit out of town, up on a hill, it has this magnificent view and the whole atmosphere is just magical.
You can relax in the pool area and listen to music or go further down for a breathtaking view and some small wallabies.
The kitchen is well equipped and clean at all times.

If you have your own transportation or you are not to lazy to walk up all the way, this is the best hostel ever :)

Room Tip: if you are 2 people, stay in one of the tents down where the tipi is. It's a beautiful view, qui...

My partner and I stayed here a couple of days. We both noticed we were surrounded by young men who seemed to have taken a vow of silence (or unable to have a normal conversation). If you don't mind being surrounded by young men with poor communication skills, and who leave there dirty dishes in the sink, you will love the place. Reception was fantastic. Water pressure was a huge issue also.

Intended to stay for one day and ended up leaving about three days later. Beautiful location and scenery at the top of a hill, away from the main street in Nimbin. Price was fairly decent (I think it was about $15 for me per night) for a campervan and the facilities were good. The owners take a mini bus into town each days to collect supplies which you can hitch a ride on for free, instead of the walk. Like others have said, Nimbin is a crazy place but its good to embrace the culture for a few days.

Well what can I say about Nimbin?!? One of the craziest, weirdest places I have ever visited. We stayed one night at the YHA and had an interesting time. The town is full of drugged up hippies which are scary to look at but seem fairly friendly on the whole. The hostel is a pretty good hostel. Comfy beds, clean toilets and good communal areas. The only reason I could see people coming to Nimbin is to sample some of the local produce if you know what I mean ! That's exactly what we did and then crashed in our beds. Probably the best place to stay when your in Nimbin.

Amazing hostel in the middle of nature, quiet and peaceful. Just a lovely place to chill out for a few days, even if smoking isn't your thing! Lots of nice walks and a creek to swim in nearby.

The atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly and it's not a big hostel so you get to know everyone, which is good if you're travelling alone.
Everything was clean and the staff working there were all lovely. There is a swimming pool (cold!), pool table, fully equipped kitchen and a cosy lounge to hang out and watch movies.

The hostel is about a 15 minute walk from the town, but there is a shuttle bus which goes to and from Nimbin at scheduled times throughout the day.
You also get a discount if you have HI membership.

Stayed September 2011, traveled solo

stayed an extra day, it was so beautiful and relaxing. there happened to be fantastic staff while i was there.
quite clean and great layout, i stayed in room but the campsites looked pretty good. great views on both sides. kitchen is substantial. really nicely decorated throughout. great spots to hang out and gather.
mobile phone signal is dodgy, so great if you want a break from connectivity. otherwise there's internet available at office
