    I spent my holidays at this perfect hostel twice (for this year). Love every moment of being there. I felt like I was at my home in country town, surrounded by trees plants and animals. Love the quietness of the place (except when cicadas are singing) and generosity/kindness of the owner (she is the angel of Hawkesbury Heights) If you love nature, the quietness - this place is definitely a right place for you. RECOMMENDED RECOMMENDED!

    Great place to escape to for a few days.

    It was not made clear that this hostel is quite rural and would not be suitable if you don't have a car. There is no TV or wifi available, which coupled with the location meant there was no entertainment accessible. There was also no oven only a hob, microwave and BBQ.

    Great to get away from the city and experience a peaceful bush setting.
    Jack H June 2016
    This hostel is a hidden gem. The owner is lovely and welcoming and tyne hostel itself is warm, cosy and has a home like feel about it. We loved our stay. Would recommend ear plugs as the walls are very thin. Also note bathroom set up is not ideal but the only down side to the experience.

    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.
