I was shocked when I walked into the hostel to find it full of older people drinking and gambling, more so that there would be slot machines at a hostel meant for backpackers. After staying for a few days (one extra) I was offered a ride to my next destination and told that they could not refund my money. This was ridiculous as the hostel was not full and it had been an additional night to my original stay any how. Some of the service staff were fantastic, and others (specifically Frank) were rude and inconsiderate. I would not stay here again or recommend it. Truthfully there is nothing worth going to Coffs Harbour for, as Yamba and Port Macquarie are amazing and in both places you can find great accommodation and service. Due to the fact that it is full of long term workers there is not any type of hostel mentality and it is hard to get people to do things with. Don't waste your time or money. If you do decide to stay in coffs stay at Aussietown. I was able to get over there to visit a friend and it was much better and friendlier.
