Stayed at the Humpback for just over a week and had a really good time. It's pretty much right on the beach, so from bed to 1st wave is about 10mins! Tyler is a good host and makes an effort to chat to everyone and make them feel comfortable, Jeff is a laugh and has heaps of enthusiasm for pretty much everything.
For a beach hostel the facilities are good, but don't expect luxury. Is about 30-40mins walk from the town, so not too bad for groceries and other supplies.
They can organise excursions for the national park, fishing and whale watching. You can also rent surfboards if you left yours at home. Would recommend!
