    We had a very friendly welcome to this nice hostel that's in a great location to visit Newcastle. Was great value for money, you can borrow DVD's & they had surfboards that you can use for free and we got free sausage sandwiches & a free drink on the night we stayed. Nice, quiet place, just what we wanted.

    stayed at YHA Newcastle for a period of 3 weeks whilst on University placement. Awesome location, easy walk to The Grain Store (awesome boutique beer bar) and the beach just across the road. Recommended for both short and long stays. Friendly staff!

    not the best we've been to (Katoomba) , bit inconvenient with the kitchen in the basement level, very few power points in room, kitchen small too, great bathroom though.

    We found under the bed in our double room the rubbish of the pre-guest (beer bottle and used tissue). The whole hostle seemed to be in a need of cleaning.

    Fantastic location and a very cool building. The bedding is very old and while it looked clean, it should really be replaced. Shabby is the word I would use to describe it. Also the carpet in the rooms was a bit run down. Overall good stay.

    It is a beautiful place with a lot of character and charm. The twin room we had was excellent. For me the only downside was the amount of stairs to climb from the ground floor up to the twin room and then more stairs down to the kitchen (which is in the basement). As I have bad knees it was hard work at times.

    As most YHAs in Australia, this is a pretty clean, basic and quaintly atmospheric place. The room was basic and the bed much too soft; nice friendly staff. The kitchen was the only place which provokes negative feedback; wasn't well organised and looked a mess. Can't beat the location - 3 minutes walk from the train station and 5 minutes walk to the beaches. Overall - good and to be recommended.

    I stayed in the YHA because I was cycling around Newcastle and doing the Fernliegh Track and north Lake Macquarie. A great place to get to all locations. As a 66 year old woman it was a cosy safe place to stay.

    Only stayed one night so maybe not an accurate review. Good location close to the city centre and the ocean. Good size room, nice and clean. Good Kitchen facilities. Parking was out on the road which was ok. Didn't seem to be heaps of people about but as I said, I was only passing through on the way down to Melbourne. I would recommend it as a place to stay. Nice cafe down the road.
