We stayed here for one night as we were driving from Gold Coast to Byron. There was enough parking available for everyone who had a car. The hostel was nice and chilled, comfortable and peaceful with some nice areas to relax like the hammocks under the tree which is also a nice view of rural NSW. There is also free...

Hippy’s, Hipsters and Happiness…all here Thru the years that I have been travelling each place has had it’s charm, but for the most part one that I can easily move on from and look forward to my next experience. Nimbin Rocks YHA is not one of those places. In fact it is the opposite. It is a home, a hideaway,...

We stayed in the teepee which was a really interesting experience, the view from here was amazing, really nice to wake up to in the morning, with a table and benches so you can sit with a cup of tea and enjoy the view ! There are lots of cool places to sit like chairs hanging from the tree and...

Everyone knows what folks go to Nimbin for, and that being the case, you won't have trouble at Nimbin Rox. The manager at the desk was most helpful. The rooms are basic but have A/C, there are communal bathrooms and hot water for the showers, and a communal living area and kitchen with TV and movies. The best part for...

the receptionist was perfectly disguised as a hippy, but behave like the stiffest Brit I ever met. Monotonous voice, avoiding eye contact, he reminded me of MArvin the paranoid android from the hitchhikers guide through the galaxy, hating life and all. I would have left immediately for this, but the town and nearest hostel is far away, especially with luggage....

We had a late check in and got welcomed by some British dude who was obviously high on some drug and just couldn't handle anything. The hostel itself located at a beautiful spot, it's unfortunately just not ran and maintained properly.

I'm truly amazed by this hostel!!! As a low-budget backpacker I spent a lot of time in hostels and I must say this one is amazing! I stayed three times at this place and I totally love it! The region around this place is beautiful, the view from the camping site, especially the van site, is magnificent. Nothing but nature...
