    The host, Zoom, was very welcoming and helpful, and efficient. Unfortunately, the hostel is starting to show its age - the room could use some attention regarding cleanliness. Saying this, the bathrooms and kitchen were very clean and pleasant. Well located hostel.

    Great location, however, work needs to be undertaken on the bathroom. Stains on the doona cover. Gentleman upon arrival mumbled and rushed to explain where everything was. Gentleman upon departure was friendly. If you don't have high expectations on the accomm you will love it. Needs some TLC

    Wonderful hostel with a great atmosphere. Almost upon arrival we felt right at home, both in the hostel and in the town.

    This is the best hostel I've been to in Australia. Bellingen is beautiful, but the hostel would still be worth visiting if it was located at the center of a town sized cat-litter-box. The managers are super cool guys and the staff is amazing. The hostel is a big beautiful old house with a great view from most rooms and the porches. Tons of wonderful wildlife right outside the door, A+ stay!

    Customer Reviews on yha.com.au

    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 yha.com.au, 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.
