          Stayed here as a last minute option after our campsite fell through. $84 for a private room with no ensuite is steep. The rooms could do with a Hoover, a lot of chipping paint and mould. Staff were friendly but the whole place was outdated.

          Rooms & communal areas are very dated. Received poor customer service at the front desk. Wifi didn't work. The lobby/Reception area is very appealing but once you go beyond that you are disappointed. good location in Coffs Harbour.

          Advised hostel we would check in 1 hour late, they wouldn't leave reception open as they would be leaving the site unmanned after 10pm. Still charged us full price despite this. Really unhelpful on phone. DO NOT STAY HERE
