    Super friendly and helpful staff, facilities were in great condition - kitchen kept tidy which is always a massive plus in a hostel environment, bathrooms were also very clean and tidy, social areas comfortable to relax in. Handy proximity to beach / jetty area, and train station.

    I had a great stay at Coffs Harbour YHA! The staff are all friendly and knowledgeable and the hostel was clean and very comfortable.

    The only thing I didn't like was the annoying girls running around the hostel at 3am making a lot of noise on my second night. I was about to rage. Everything else was great, I got put into a room with no one else in it which was really nice. the lady on the desk was very lovely, and I was given a free ride to the airport which was incredibly handy. Also, the showers are great!

    Great hostel, close to train station, jetty, shops nearby. Great base in Coffs. We had a private room with bathroom, which was very clean. The only downside was the mattress wasn't great, and the pillows were very thin and soft. We were able to get an extra 2 which helped. We could hear a very loud snorer next door, but earplugs helped. Would stay again.

    Lots of young people; nice pool area which is especially nice for breakfast in the morning. Nice staff and even if the facilities are a little old they are very good (especially the showers = best so far in YHAs)

    Great spot in Coffs. Friendly staff and guests, with great facilities for the family group too!

    I have stopped in LOTS of hostels, and many of them YHA's, I don't really bother with doing feedback (laziness) but I felt I had to for this hostel as it was an amazing hostel to stay in. The staff were great, helpful and friendly, and the facilities were some of the best I've seen. Best hostel I have stayed in Australia so far, really going to be hard to beat, I even extended my stay there by a few days because I liked it so much. Thank you. 😃

    Staff were very helpful and rooms were good size and clean. Closest supermarket over the road (but small and expensive IGA). Coles is a good 25 min walk.

    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.
