    Bellingen YHA

    Bellingen YHA is one of Australia's most laidback backpacker hostels. It's a beautiful and homely YHA set amongst beautiful country! 

    Relax on the hostel balcony overlooking the river and rainforest gardens. Take a tour to Dorrigo National Park, canoe on the river or explore Bellingen village with its great cafes, shops and monthly markets. Hostel accommodation is in twin/double and multi-share rooms; free Wi-Fi for guests.

    • Location is great, right in the center of town, but set back so traffic or passers by noise is not an issue. Rooms on the balcony are the best. Lovely rural views. It is a YHA, so there's always people about. Not for you if you want privacy. My friends, husband and I love it and we will be back.
