I've stayed here on many occasions & can highly recommend staying here at this 'home away from home'. It's a very friendly place to stay with fantastic staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. They are there to make sure you have a wonderful stay. There's a couple of free BBQs every week, a movie night with popcorn &...

A wonderful find, within walking distance from the train station and the beach. Old world type of hostel. Clean, good beds, good facilities. As an older traveler I felt welcome and right at home. Very convenient if you want to make your own meals

Could just see the water from my window! Could not be closer to the beach. The hostel itself was a charming old building. The kitchen was boring and rather small but the common room made up for it. Rooms clean and everything in working order. Staff were good - there was a troublesome guest who woke up everyone at 2am...

Perfectly suitable for what we needed - two night stay on the way up the coast. Very clean, good beds, great location and big common and kitchen areas. Lots of local info and tips too, and staff all friendly and informative. Social evenings good fun.

Hi guys, Great hostel and location! Only the receptionist Sarah was very unfriendly! I couldn't find my key directly and all she kept saying was you need to pay, what's your name, you need to pay, what's your name on and on..! Not even a friendly smile or even asking how my stay was. I was like chill relax the...

Laid back, tidy, quiet hostel. Great central location a stones throw from cafes and beaches. Perfect for surfers who want a quiet night to crash after a day out in the surf. Simple but well maintained dormitory rooms and shared kitchen facilities. Appropriate for all ages.

We missed our bus and checked in at YHA Newcastle for the night. It was a perfect location and the common area was huge and had billiards, ping pong, chess, movies, and really comfy couches. We ended up finding another bus to Byron Bay and had to cancel our booking with YHA. Damien (at the front desk) was so helpful...

The location of the old building is close to the local surf beaches, car parking between 17:00 - 09:00 is free, during the day you should move your car to one of the local free car parking areas. The building itself is an old one in english style, rooms where big with a lots of space. The place is ok...

Came here on a work trip, we were here to work during the day and then have a few drinks in the evening. On the one evening that we did have drinks, we were told that there was no alcohol in the common room after 10:30 and then every 10 minutes were were told that we were being too loud....

We got in quite late but someone had already emailed us the code to get in and the guy who greeted us was really friendly and helpful. The rooms are fairly dated and could do with a makeover, however all areas were clean and the showers were great. The common room was really nice and if we had stayed longer...
