These guys were great! Friendly, helpful and really easy to talk to. Appreciated the advice on what and where to go for my first night in Newcastle. Kitchen was good, room's have fan's but no aircon. While quite when I was there the people were friendly as well

It suited my needs perfectly, as it gave me a quiet comfortable dorm bed and access to a well organised kitchen and sometimes access to a bicycle. The hostel consists of a newish purpose built communal area, with kitchen, pool, hammock space, bbq area etc at the back of two older houses which contain the dorms/bathrooms etc. The hostel is...

I visited on the weekend, for a conference. My initial impression was that the facilities were a bit run down, but I was blown over by the friendly people that I met while staying there. The location was convenient, being walking distance from Beaumont street too. I have to mention James, one of the long-term residents especially, who struck up...

Was a great experience, even though their was some confusion with our bookings (they thought we were 3 people not 3 rooms full of people) they made it work for us even adding beds to rooms so we could be together. Upon returning at three am we were quiet welcome to stay out in the common area and continue our...

Booked a double room here, on arrival we were told there wasn't one available so we could either leave or take the 4 bed shared dorm, everywhere else in Newcastle was fully booked as it was surf fest so we had no choice but to stay! Didn't get to have a proper view of the room until night time as...

We stayed in Newcastle as a stop off, ahead of Sydney to break up the journey. Upon check in, there was an issue with our payment (which we had paid) however this was down to hostelworld I believe, rather than the hostel itself. Whilst checking in, the guy dealing with us started a discussion with his colleague regarding what they...
