If you're travelling alone and want to socialize, this hostel is perfect for you. I was included in the nimbin rox family right away and spent an amazing time, including Christmas there.

Even with a storm on the night we stayed this was still an awesome place to stay. Everyone really friendly and welcoming. Breakfast (egg and bacon English muffin) made by resident chef was very tasty. Highly recommended.

I had so much fun! Met some awesome people here and was able to spend four relaxing nights in this YHA. I stayed over Easter and Nimbin proved to be a nice getaway for that season. The national park with waterfalls is definitely a must-see if you have a car!

Couldn't speak highly enough of the place. Helped us out of a bad situation with incredible generosity. The facilities were good, the huge L couch was even better! The English guy who ran/owned the hostel even gave us a lift up the road in his truck. 5* service!
