    Been here 3 times already, brought my best mate, refereed everyone I like here and booking my Christmas vacation here this year. Traveled the east coast over the last 9 months and this is my favourite place and hostel by far. Shane and the Henwood family are some of the most loving people you will ever meet and the people staying here complete the visit! Do Shanes tour!! YAMBA TIME!!!!!!

    The staff of this family operated hostel is super friendly and helpful. You really feel that they love their job. That's why a lot of backpackers stay there for months and become part of a nice community. The place is perfect for surfing. There are 3 beach breaks in walking distance: turners beach, main beach and pippies beach. It takes 10 min by car to go to the reef brake angurie point.

    Room was beautiful. The kitchen we didn't use as it was a mess but this was a reflection of the current occupiers rather than the hostel. Staff friendly.

    Accommodation excellent in purpose-built hostel including cleanliness & comfort. However, the TV room and kitchen could have been cleaner / neater but this was due to the guests not the management. Unlike other hostels, the guests did not include a broad range of ages.

    This hostel is awesome in so many ways: really nice staff and owners, very clean and fresh facilities and dorms, spacious tv room and out-door terrace, inexpensive activities like Shanes tour and surf lessons, well-equipped kitchen etc. The atmosphere at the hostel is so relaxed and Yamba itself is a piece of paradise. Would absolutely recommmend!
