    A fabulous place and central location to stay as a family to enjoy the surrounding attractions. Would fully recommend to any young family wishing to stay in the Hunter Valley region on a budget. We will definitely come back to stay.

    Nice hostel, great location for wine tasting. Nigel the owner was lovely and very helpful. Only had small lockers so just enough for valuables, not whole bag. Had to pay extra for a towel. When we stayed I think there was only another couple of rooms occupied so the atmosphere was non existent but that's to be expected under those circumstances.

    The hostel was in a beautiful setting. Nigel was very nice and booked us on a wonderful vineyard tour of hunter valley. Thank you Nat and Bec

    Hunter Valley YHA was a pleasant surprise - from friendly owners, suitable family rooms and shared amenities, to lovely sociable facilities. Just wish we had have been there in summer to enjoy the great outdoor spaces in the evening.

    Great place to stay for those who want a change or looking for value for money style accommodation.

    We booked the Hunter Valley YHA out to accomodate our group and found both the rooms and communal facilities perfect for our needs. Location just up the road from a brewery & pub (easy walk to Potters) was also fantastic. Thanks!

    We took a group of year 12 students for one night and it was perfect.

    What a fantastic stay! We rented the whole YHA Hunter Valley for a weekend with a large group of uni students. Nigel and Colleen were very helpful and accomodating. Couldn't have asked for a better time!

    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.
