    Perfect location facilities are clean and the common areas for socialising are great, I would recommend Yha for any traveller, many social dinner nights in the week are available for guests

    Really friendly staff on hand to answer any questions especially about the local area. The hostel is in a beautiful old building with the common room set in the old ballroom which only added to its brilliant original character!!

    Very nice Hostel. More experience than for Exemple in Cairns, but still good value. Perfect Location. Close to beach, esplanade and streets with Coffes and Bars

    Had a great stay! The rooms are very spacious and bright and all the facilities made my stay very relaxed. I loved the huge lounge area with the sofas and the record player in the laundry room. I also asked reception to keep my laptop safe which they did each night I stayed. Great service! And the location is awesome. Great hostel and great town!

    Newcastle beach yha has been one of my favorites in Australia! The location is perfect and if you get lucky, the sounds of the ocean will rock you to sleep from your room. It's very spacious and insanely relaxing. You'll enjoy you're time here!

    Great location and a beautiful building - the staff are always helpful. I've stayed several times and will stay again.Pleasant surprise to find free WiFi this time. Some of the pans in the kitchen are starting to look a bit tired - maybe time to replace them? Overall: highly recommended.

    Wonderful hostel, has everything you need. Large common area and the kitchen was the cleanest i have seen so far on our trip staying in hostels. Really enjoyed our stay in newcastle, beautiful city by the beach with plenty of coastal walks and free activities. Would recommend staying here.

    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.
