This is one of the best hostels we've stayed in during our two months in Australia.
The building is very plush and could easily pass for a hotel. Our room was large and had a TV and DVD player (you can rent DVDs for free from reception). The staff are very helpful and can advise on any tour bookings (the Hunter Valley wine tasting tour is fun).
The kitchen can get a bit cramped but the eating area is huge. The shared toilets and showers are very clean.
The one downside is that the internet WiFi options are $4 for an hour or $6 for two hours - not great. The free body boards and surf boards just about make up for that though.
If we were to come back to the beautiful city of Newcastle, we would definitely stay here again.
