Stayed at the Hoey for 3 weeks picking blueberries, the location, accommodation and amenities make this an ideal spot for backpackers looking to get their second year visa. Located right next to a bar/restaurant with a bottle shop attached you're never far away from a meal, $4 schooner or box of goon. The staff are welcoming and Frank the manager... More

One of the best hostels in Australia, great vibe and people will 100% be back. Staff are always very helpful and the event staff always have something running. Great experience and all within meters of the beach.

Staying at a nearby camp site this hotel was recommended by a local taxi driver. We visited on a Saturday, it was buzzing, very busy but so friendly. We sat in the open air section and enjoyed free chips, chicken wings and snacks from the bar. Lots of raffles, racing events and good fun to be had. Went back on... More

Broke up a trip to Armidale via Waterfall Way (extraordinary) with a stay at the Hoey Moey. Loved it because it's exactly what it said it would be - cheap, cheerful, clean and right on the beach. It's not 5 star but it doesn't pretend to be. Loved mingling with other travellers, bar and bistro closeby is a plus, and... More

Bus came in early so the cleaning staff prepared my bed while I waited in the common area and gave me my key as soon as possible so hats off to them! Room was ok, had a fridge which was good, but bathroom wasn't in the best condition. No lockers in room which was a let down. Great location next... More

Arrived here after a long drive & was very impressed! The staff arranged for my boyfriend and I to check in after reception had closed, and the process was quick and staff friendly. The bar seemed lively with a good vibe, and we even stayed for a beer just to unwind. The double room with ensuite was clean and well... More

A really nice hostel/motel with nice and clean rooms, parking, a bar and the bottleshop as a neighbour. Great courtyard where you can have fun, play drinkinggames and chill with your hostelfriends. Nice Beach just behind building and good staff! Highly recommended

Just left the Hoey Moey after a week there, Coffs Harbour is a lovely pace to explore with lots to do! The Hoey is situated right on the beach which pretty much becomes your own private getaway! This place is mainly a working hostel so if you want to work get your 88 days done and make some friends along... More
