The best holiday is where you dont have to go far from your accomodation to do stuff. The shops and restaurants are right there, the beach is over the road and that pool is a god send from the heat. Great spot

The rooms in this hostel are adequate enough, in line with expectation; clean, comfy albeit quite hot even with the fan on full blast. The common areas were clean and tidy, with a very well equipped kitchen in terms of utensils etc. However, numerous signs plastered on the walls and tables saying 'CCTV; we're watching you' is slightly unnerving and...

We stayed here as a family of four (with two very young children). We booked it unaware that it was a hostel (using some hotel site). Once we arrived we quickly realized what had happened but there were no refunds on our booking. The staff were very friendly and arranged it so that we could get a room with a... More

Stayed here a couple of times now, rates have been great for a private room, super clean and very friendly staff. Great location near the beach and the Harbour and only a short trip into town. Would certainly recommend to others passing through Coffs.

We were just in Coffs overnight, so chose the hostel's private room with bathroom. It was very clean and tidy throughout. There's parking, a pool, plus all the hostel necessities like kitchen, laundry, common room and tv room. There's a limited amount of free wifi, but it only works on lower level, so we didn't use it. It's in a... More

Love the laid back vibe here. Staff are really friendly and helpful, common areas are well kept, and rooms are spacious and have mirrors! Best shower pressure in any hostel I've been to, and such as short walk to the beach. If you are lucky, you might even see the dolphin that lives under the jetty!

Ive been to hostels in beautiful locations from Cancun to Cambodia but Coffs has to be one of my favourites. The location is amazing, walk to the beach and the Jetty Strip (must do), clean rooms, friendly staff and they have a bbq and a pool to take advantage of. Will be back guys. Keep up the great work!

Oh! What is there not to like about this clean, well-run, gorgeous little place, and only a two-minute walk to the beach to take in the most spectacular sunrise at six in the morning? The proprietor Brett even runs a city tour and for only $10, he takes us in his van to various places of interests including, of course,... More

Hostel of deceit This place survives on misleading people. Free Wifi? - LIES - you only get 250mb A DAY!! Australia is still in the dark ages with Internet and to Europeans/anyone else you will find this laughable.

Hi Guys, Sorry to hear you were dissapointed with your stay. In Regards to wifi we do provide free wifi however we limit that to 250 meg per person. If we were to provide unlimited free wifi we would have to reflect it in the pricing of the rooms and your stay would be more expensive. Our shuttle bus runs... More
