    Awesome hostel, awesome staff, definitely recommend! Wish I could have stayed longer. Make sure you get time to go on Shane's tour!

    Loved the warm welcome, friendly staff and the overall atmosphere of the hostel. Would definitely come back and recommend to others.

    We stayed one night while traveling. The hostel felt unclean (especially the bathroom and common areas) and it lacked atmosphere. The rooms were not air conditioned and very humid/hot. It was cheap and you get what you pay for, but it felt lack lustre compared to other facilities on the coast

    The space isn't very nice and friendly, sinks are stuck, doors of the toilets aren't closing. It's not a nice space to stay except in the bar downstairs. Though the staff is very helpful and friendly, nice activities to do, dinners and stuff, cool!

    Yamba YHA was a great place to stay. The bar/café downstairs was awesome, we enjoyed dinner and a few drinks and didn't have far to go back to our rooms. The only issue we had was the ceiling fan in our room worked on 2 speeds, 1 - Don't bother, 2 - Didn't work, 3 - Batten down the hatches we're about to take off.

    The hostel is awesome: nice people, great atmosphere, clean, big kitchen and great deals in the café/restaurant/bar downstairs.

    Awesome place to crash for a couple of nights, weeks, or months. The staff is amazing. Don't forget to book Shane's Tour. Had a great time! Thanks guys!

    The staff at this hostel is at times hilarious and superfriendly! The atmosphere is really relaxing and enjoyable. Young and energetic team and guests.

    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.
