I stayed here one night and I booked the YHA because I expected a clean and modern place. I booked via telephone and the check-in on the next day was easygoing. The room was clean and spacious but the toilets and showers not. The YHA needs in my opinion a renovation. The location is good because it's close to the...

Not a good stay at all! Considering the experience, cleanliness and whole atmosphere of the place, $33 is extremely overpriced! Stayed 5 nights here in the YHA and I had to use my sleep lining bag on arrival and check in, my bed was covered in thick black hair (I am blonde...!). All over the pillow and bed sheet. Gingerly...

A bit of a mixture this place. Nice laid back vibe with decent facilities, but a bit of a shortfall in the cleaning department. The showers and toilets definitely needed a bit more attention. The location is very handy, close to pretty much everything. Newcastle itself is a delightful city and it is a pleasure to be staying in such...

Clean rooms. Comfy beds the best nights sleep I've had so far. Games, DVDs, videos available to use. Free body boards and surfboards too. Clean kitchen with a freezer. The best shower facilities too. Staff are helpful and friendly. Location is ideal right near the beaches and Coast.

I stayed here for one night on my way to Melbourne from the Gold Coast. Big and quiet hostel. Stayed in 5 girls room and i got a good night sleep. The room was big and easy to move around in and place your stuff. I got sheets but also a thick blanket if it got to cold. The kitchen...

Cute hostel in great location however... there are dead cockroaches in the showers and common room. Brought this to the attention of reception but didn't seem to care and they were still there for days after... Also heard of several people having food stolen from their shelves (this frustratingly happened to me also). Newcastle as a whole is quite pretty...

It is only a 2 minute walk to the nearest beach which is perfect. The hostel itself is very nice, with old features and a large kitchen and social area. Lots of videos to choose from to watch and there was free popcorn the night we stayed. Downside, there's no wifi, unless you're prepared to pay for it or are...
