    Had an amazing night here in one of the permanent tents! Was so tranquil, and quiet. The view was amazing. It's a shame we could only stay one night. We will be back again definitely, next time for longer :)

    The hostel it's self was average. There was nothing special about it. We did see the occasional cat sized rat running around... That was fun. The persons that stayed there- who I believed worked there, were friendly, however it all seemed a bit clicky.. So we felt awkward and out of place. Sort of like staying at some strangers house as a guest. The beds were pretty uncomfortable too, and unlike it shows in the pictures, it's seen better days. The photos were clearly taken a while back, everything is very well used, holes in the hammocks, and A LOT of wear and tear, for things that are easily sorted. I don't see myself returning anythime soon :/

    I had trouble sleeping as the television was on in the lounge at high volume until late in the night. The hostel is quite a long walk into the town. The surrounding scenery is very beautiful.

    I had a great time here. The staff were so friendly and relaxed. The place is kept in very good condition and there are even star fruit trees and pineapples growing within the hostel grounds! Would definitely stay again!

    This hostel has a great chilled atmosphere and feels really homely. The bathrooms could do with a lot of work but other than that it's great.

    We stayed in the tee pee and there were mice running around inside the tent for the entire night- when we woke up there was droppings over all of our stuff !

    Wonderful location, helpful staff Kept Clean as well. Keep it up as it is the no. 1 place in NSW amongst the YHA group.

    Best hostel I've stayed in, all the guests were really friendly and the staff were awesome, Tim especially. The only problem being that the YHA system messed up and our room was double booked. However Tim got us all sorted drove us to somewhere else for the first night then picked us up the next morning and sorted us out rooms for the next 3. The worst thing about this hostel was that we had leave.

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
