Very very clean hostel, and a good location considering how spread out Hunter Valley is -it's only a short walk from a brewery/pub with well priced food and beer.

Met some really nice people in the common room that allows people to get together. With a huge pub/Brewery 400m away, it was easy to have a drink. The rooms are simpel but tidy, all you need is at the hostel!

Visit the nearest wine-growing region to Sydney - the Hunter Valley. This purpose built YHA hostel is right in the heart of wine country. The hostel recently completed major renovations, now with brand new bathrooms, kitchen and lounge area; and a lovely new outdoor area with pool, BBQ and hammocks. Wine tours are available from the hostel; and it's only a short walk to the local pub with meals and nightlife.
There is a 2-night minimum for weekend bookings.
