Very quiet, nice scenery & pool. Easy walk to potters brewery. Stayed in a 4person room with private bathroom. Basic room with modern bathroom and comfortable beds. Happy that we splashed out on local food & wine and saved on accommodation. Would return.

We were 5 families with kids who stayed here over Easter. The YHA was excellent. Great location, lots of room for the kids to play outside, a swimming pool and big verandahs to enjoy a wine at the end of the day. The hosts are lovely and you can hire bikes to visit the local vineyards. I highly recommend this... More

We came to the Hunter to view the Xmas lights and came for 2 days. Many of the hotels were charging in excess of $290 per night and we did not want to spend this much considering check-in is 3pm and we would be out and about most of the time hence why we chose a budget hotel. The YHA... More

This YHA is the best I've seen in a while: very clean, with a lot of space and things to do (BBQ and wood fire). The landscapes are also stunning! The lady running the place is adorable, she helped us and gave us advice. It's also quite small, so no crowd, no queue for the bathrooms and a very quiet... More

I found this to be a good budget option for basing yourself nearby to the Hunter Valley wineries. It's just outside the town of Cessnock itself and it's not in the best location if you don't have a car, but staff will pick you up from Cessnock bus station. Staff were pretty friendly and helpful all round. Bike hire is... More

Very helpful staff, warm and welcoming. The place is clean (rooms, toilets and kitchen), the location is beautiful, easy to reach and well positioned to visit the surroundings. It can be cold in the night as there is no heating in the rooms, but beds are plenty of blankets. Slightly overpriced for a backpackers accommodation, but cheaper than anything else... More

Came in the coldest part of winter and there wasn't any heater. Water is also only lukewarm. The kitchen had nothing but basic facilities. Everything is just really basic. Staff here are friendly and nice though.

we stayed here with a group and had a double room, I'm not sure how much others paid for beds in the dorm rooms, but I think we paid a lot for our double room. The room was clean with a double bed, set of bunk beds and large disabled bathroom. This meant that after a shower the entire floor... More

This YHA hostel offered the standard facilities of any hostel which were adequate enough for our stay. There were only two female showers and toilets, although this was never an issue for me. The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of seating inside and outside, smokers were confined to the bbq area outside. The notice "quiet after 10pm"... More
