The hostel needs improvement and supposedly the new owners are beginning to do it. My husband and I reserved a long time in advance when there were other owners. We ended up in bunk beds that were very uncomfortable--squeeky metal frames every time you rolled over. The rooms are extremely hot--there is only one window and no air flow, also very little light at night--one tiny bulb in the ceiling. The owners should put ceiling fans with lights in the rooms. Actually, without spending a lot of money they could add value--like towel racks and hooks in the rooms, a nightstand, etc. The room was very basic but clean and the pool was refreshing, although it seemed a bit cloudy. The location is great by the vineyards and compared to hotels it is very cheap but it is really just a place to sleep and not really relax. Very friendly owners.

Stayed here for 2 nights as we wanted to do some Hunter Valley wine tours. The price of hotel rooms in this area is very expensive so we decided to stay at the YHA.
The brother sister team running the hostel are very friendly and the brother drives the bus for the wine tours.
We had a double room which was very small, one side of the bed is pushed against the wall. The bathroom was clean and not too bad. The bed however was not very comfortable and the walls were paper thin. People could be heard walking outside and you could hear all the noises associated with the Hunter Valley Country side.
We ate the first night in Potters Brewery, nice food, not too expensive and excellent beer.
The second night the hostel organised a bbq, not great value for money.
There were 7 of us on the wine tour, you would not be able to describe the bus as luxurious!!! However the wine tour was good fun.
I would recommend the hostel, however with the warnings mentioned above
