I loved my stay in Coffs Harbour. The hostel offered a free pick up and the atmosphere was amazing. Staff was super friendly and helpful. It felt like coming home. They offer plenty of activities and you can rent out so many things for free, it's incredible. I would definitely stay there again. If you're looking for a cozy hostel, that's it. The bathrooms got a little too steamed up so you were sweating after a shower but that's the only negative point. I highly recommend the place!

Great place. We stayed 2 nights with our van on the parking area and we could use all their commodities. The bathrooms are cleaned. Nice swimming pool and the areas outside are good with the hamac! Jamie at the reception is very friendly and will recommend you a lot places to go, to visit and to do! So thanks for this ! Great service !

If you hear someone say "there isn't much to do in Coffs Harbour", it's because they haven't stayed at Aussietel. They organize at least 2 trips per day, and these are very reasonably priced, when not free! The trips are fun, and informative. The staff is very knowledgeable and you always feel like your questions are welcome.

It felt so good to meet genuinely nice staff. I could immediately see the difference, with any other hostel I have been to. I highly recommend this place!

Stayed mon 19/3/18- wed 21/3/18. Check in was great, very friendly and welcoming, gave lots of info on things to do in area and also hostel activities each day, some of which are free like stand up paddle boarding and kayaking. Kitchen was clean. Pool area was great and had loungers for sunbathing which was also great !! Would definitely stay here again and recommend hostel to others.

After travelling the east coast for about six weeks now, this is by far one of our favourite hostels! The activities day and night were above and beyond our expectations, would definitely recommend Emerald Beach, Dorrigo National Park and the big banana trip! Gary, Jamie and the rest of the staff were so friendly, helpful and welcoming. By the end of our stay there we felt as though everyone knew everyone and it had such a welcoming vibe.

As for cleanliness we couldn’t complain, the bathrooms and kitchen were all cleaned daily along with the communal areas.

If you are going to stop at Coffs Harbour I would definitely recommend staying here, the activities alone make it worth it and you get to see parts of the area you wouldn’t normally be able too if you didn’t have a car.
