We arrived at the hostel, intending to stay for just one night. The plan was then to go up to Port Stephens and do a dolphin swimming experience. It turned out that planning is not my strong suit. The experience begins at 5.30am, and the wonderful owner, Anna, informed us that there was no way we would get there in...

Stayed in this hostel with some friends on the 2 of the 3 nights we were in Newcastle... not the best hostel experience for travellers based on the noise and the distance for everything except a supermarket. Staff were friendly and helpful though but wouldn't recommend as a place to stay. There are better places in East Newcastle (near the...

Thanks to Anna and her passion for Newcastle I loved my stay there! Overall the hostel is ok, just an hostel but Anna makes it the best hostel in the world! She know all about Newcastle. I also did a lovely tour wine In the Hunter Valley, under her recommendation, it was great! My advice to you is that if...

Me and my partner stayed here for a few days about two weeks ago when we first arrived to Newcastle. We googled a hostel for one night and we picked this one by chance, boy were we glad we stumbled on this place. Upon making our booking on the train, the woman who runs the place informed us she would...

The hostel is located a bit away from the city center, but there is a free bus going there all day. And it's close by the supermarkets and a nice mall. The rooms are very spacious and it's easy to see it used to be a home. The kitchen is nice and there is a good atmosphere. The hostel feels...

I stayed here during The Lions tour in June and loved it! Yes, it was a little far from town but that wasn't much of an issue for me. Upon arrival I was greeted by the manager Anna who was just wonderful and kind. After a speedy check-in, she showed to to my room (a 4 bed mixed dorm). I...

Stayed here just for a night while we were in Newcastle for music festival Groovin' The Moo. We were picked up from the station by a lovely lady who works there- an added bonus! because they weren't too busy at the time. Was a cute place, tidy and clean. Appreciated staff letting us know we had 30 mins left to...

Good to stay! Nice manager, and everything was clean. We could lock our stuff after checking out. Next time again! Quite close to the center and very close to amazing stadium of New Castle United! Christoph

One of my favourite hostels so far. Picked up from the greyhound by the lovely and enthusiastic Anna, taken back shown to our rooms. What I liked was we were welcomed like guests not checked in and forgotten about like a lot of other hostels. Pool was lovely, kitchen wasn't the best in honesty but its clean (as long as...

We arrived in Newcastle to be picked up by Anna in her minibus. The minibus is in need of improvement. Anna was brilliant, she showed us around and directed us to all the right places to go. Not quite the same with the hostel room. We couldn't tel whether our sheets had been washed and the whole room was in...
