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...

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,...

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. Free shuttle? - LIES - they do not collect people off of the greyhound bus or return you to it. We heard...

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...

Staff are so friendly, helpful and had a wealth of local knowledge. The showers are hot and very powerful perfect for when you've been camping the previous week!! The location is great, just a few minutes walk from great coffee and not far from the jetty. The hostel also offers free shuttles and secure parking for free which is a...

My dive buddy and I statyed in a 1 room basic accomodation, with own bathroom and shared lounge and kitchen. Walking distance from the dive shop, breakfast and dinner restaurants. The reception is most helpful with local eating facilities. Plenty of backpackers who are interested in a chat.

Probably the friendliest staff of any hostel we have visited in Australia. They offer a fantastic value ($10) tour led by the nicest guy - we saw hundreds of wild kangaroos, a pod of dolphins and visited a great lookout point. We used their BBQ too. Very highly recommended!

I will never stay at this hostel again and I urge you not to waste your money. I don't often write reviews but on this occasion I don't want anyone to be treated how we were. First of all they messed up our reservation. We were due to arrive at 3am on Tuesday morning so called to see whether we...

This hostel picked me up from the Greyhound stop for free in their mini-bus (was about a 10 minute drive). From the hostel it's about a 10 minute walk to the beach. I hired a bike here, and had great fun cycling down to the harbour and along the cycle/walking trails nearby (although most of the bikes they have are...
