We stayed one night in the hostel in a 4 beds room just for 2 of us, so we didn't have to share with anyone. Very friendly staff, it's clean, huge kitchen, living room... the location is great. 100% recommendable!

This was one of the best hostels we've stayed at so far. The people are super friendly and the staff is really helpful. There are all types of activities suggested and most of them are for very cheap, which is nice when you're on a tight budget. The facilities are clean and there are people of all ages so it...

I stayed here for 4 nights as a stop off on my journey from Sydney to Coffs Harbour. The hostel is very similar to other YHAs. The common room has the standard brown leather sofas and armchairs, most of which are in need of replacing. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm. The size was more than adequate. Each person...

Nice hostel in a great location. The receptionist was very helpful and even let me borrow some washing powder for free! I stayed in a 4-bed mixed dorm, which was relatively pleasant except for the fact that there was no air conditioning. Would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere fun, spacious and close to the beach.

The hostel desk man was very informative. Gave advice on where to go for fun, food and drinks. They had a very good common area. Wifi was good! The hostel put on a free dinner at a bar to get people to meet that was fun! Rooms were decent. Showers were clean. Would stay there again!

Very close to beautiful beaches and lots of eating places. Fun relaxed vibe and was able to socialise with lots of other travellors. Free activities on week nights and free surfboards anytime you...

GOOD: The staff were very friendly & it's close to the beach. BAD: There are NO airconditioners nor fans anywhere in the property, in any room! It is UNBEARABLY HOT during summer. They say that Heritage buildings cannot have holes for airconditioners or fans, but this is rubbish, as lots of heritage buildings have airconditioning. YHA Newcastle just doesn't want...

Hostel was okay, Nice common are wit nice leather sofas. They give the hostel a nice rustic touch that i really liked. The whole building seems a a little bit old but has his charm. Kitchen is a little bit small for so many people and the eating area next to it resemble to a cellar without windows and coziness....

Hi Max, Thanks for your feedback. Cockroaches indeed love the coast and hot weather which is probably why you saw a few. We spray the hostel every 3 months and the next spray will occur on 14 January. I will pass on the other feedback to the hostel manager. We hope you enjoyed your stay in Newcastle.

Bit of a walk from the greyhound bus drop off, but really good location close to the beach and the main street where there are shops bars etc. Big building with plenty of space in the dorms, kitchens and communal areas which are modern and clean compared to other YHAs. Staff were really nice and the hostel offers ideas of...

The YHA is very convenient, walking distance from the beach and from lovely cafe for breakfast. The service is good, the rooms and bathrooms are clean, and there are lots of nice places to just hang out. Gotta love all the activities on -- especially the Thursday night free BBQ!!!! Absolutely fantastic, would recommend.
