State at this hostel as a couple in a four bed dorm, it was good, rooms were good only thing was they only had two plug sockets and if you are using a adapter you can only use one at a time :( location was perfect across the road from the beach and harbour, kitchen facilities were good and outdoor seating was nice in the evenings would recommend

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at Coffs Harbour YHA. What a fantastic place to stay, friendly staff, highly informative about free things to do. Well organised and 1st class accommodation. The place was clean, lots of parking at the back and a beautiful pool.

Room Tip: Choose a room with its own bathroom, the shared facilities are great but your own bathroom makes the...

From beginning to end this was a great stay of 6 days. Room comfortable,if a little warm. Bedding and towels hotel standard. Kitchen ok with great walk in fridge. Pool a great bonus. Management and staff very hands on so always someone around to give you hints and tips on what to do etc.

We got a twin ensuite room here. Apart from the warm room (there was a ceiling fan though) the quality of room, cleanliness, beds, pillows yadda yadda were of a great standard. Better than some hotels I have been in. It was $100 a night...and the staff were pretty friendly. Car Park at the rear (limited spaces) made everything really easy. The ceiling fan rattled a little which meant sleep wasn't ideal, but in fairness I'm fussy.

The geography of coffs harbour meant we weren't necessarily in the hustle of the town, but that was our choice and lack of research.

We used this little place when traveling up the East Coast.
Really well run, check in manager was friendly and helpful. Private double room with ensuite was brilliant; clean and tidy and actually had a really good night's sleep as the hostel isn't loud or noisy.
The marina was a little walk away but not too far.

Would definitely recommend to all travelers, young and old, for a stop over in Coffs.

This is one well run hostel! It is also a non-party hostel which means that noise is kept to a minimum after 10pm and you will generally get a good night's sleep. The managers are superfriendly and helpful. Everything is clean and well maintained and functional. It's also in the very nice Jetty area of Coffs, you can walk to the beach, to the marina and to mutton bird island along the harbour wall (great views from there). The dolphin pool is close by and you can book plenty of activities through the desk. If you want to a have a break, stay at this hostel. If you need parties and nightlife, then this isn't for you. Small pool onsite,plenty of parking and good security. A nice mix of people too.
