Very close to beautiful beaches and lots of eating places. Fun relaxed vibe and was able to socialise with lots of other travellors. Free activities on week nights and free surfboards anytime you...

GOOD: The staff were very friendly & it's close to the beach. BAD: There are NO airconditioners nor fans anywhere in the property, in any room! It is UNBEARABLY HOT during summer. They say that Heritage buildings cannot have holes for airconditioners or fans, but this is rubbish, as lots of heritage buildings have airconditioning. YHA Newcastle just doesn't want...

Hostel was okay, Nice common are wit nice leather sofas. They give the hostel a nice rustic touch that i really liked. The whole building seems a a little bit old but has his charm. Kitchen is a little bit small for so many people and the eating area next to it resemble to a cellar without windows and coziness....

Hi Max, Thanks for your feedback. Cockroaches indeed love the coast and hot weather which is probably why you saw a few. We spray the hostel every 3 months and the next spray will occur on 14 January. I will pass on the other feedback to the hostel manager. We hope you enjoyed your stay in Newcastle.

Bit of a walk from the greyhound bus drop off, but really good location close to the beach and the main street where there are shops bars etc. Big building with plenty of space in the dorms, kitchens and communal areas which are modern and clean compared to other YHAs. Staff were really nice and the hostel offers ideas of...

The YHA is very convenient, walking distance from the beach and from lovely cafe for breakfast. The service is good, the rooms and bathrooms are clean, and there are lots of nice places to just hang out. Gotta love all the activities on -- especially the Thursday night free BBQ!!!! Absolutely fantastic, would recommend.

The experience was easy and simple. The accommodation was clean and tidy. It is a heritage listed building, but is in excellent repair. I think the price was completely fair for the stay. We had water views, a nice area room, could hear the waves at the beach all night. I'd recommend asking for an external windowed room away from...

Best hostel we've stayed in so far, clean spacious and so welcoming!! All facilities were good including the kitchen and eating area. Defiantly would recommend staying here and would return, YHA hostels seem to be better than others on the whole.
