This place is beautiful. I stayed here for nearly 3 weeks and I'm really sad go leave. The hostel is clean and has very friendly staff whi h helps you in every situation. The scenery where you can chill in the hammocks is stunning. It's not too far fom town but there is a shuttle bus regularily running.

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!
