This YHA is amazing! The place is super clean, staff is nice and friendly and the overall experience is worth repeating. All the local recommendations are worth checking out. :) Hiring a bicycle might be a bit adventurous due to the road / cycling paths in the area (well, Australia) but it’s definitely an option when travelling without a car. Public transport connection from Sydney is good and the walk from Cessnock bus station is just fine.

Good hostel, the only problem - is a shower and soap dispenser placement.

Amazing hostel. Nicest YHA that I have stayed in. Family run with attention to detail. It's a beautiful property with horses in neighbouring paddocks and chickens in their little pen onsite. Rooms are immaculately clean, so are the very modern bathrooms. The family take great pride in this place and I can't wait to return for another stay.

Nigel was extremely warm and welcoming and created a great atmosphere. The facilities were well maintained with nice amenities we enjoyed including the hammocks, chickens nearby, and cafe at the check in. Also, the beds were extremely comfortable and had a proper doona and extra blanket which kept us extra warm!

The hostel is amazingly clean, everything in the kitchen seems new, the 4 shared dorm that we stayed in was very comfy (finally some good pillows !!!!). The manager was very friendly and gave us great advices. There is a brewpub 5 min walking, the hostel is surrounded by wineries and is small sized so very calm and peaceful. Thanks again !!

YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That’s why when you give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

We will not publish inappropriate and/or offensive comments.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language, swearing or references to illicit drug usage.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

We will not publish any comments that are not directly related to the hostel, or your experience during your stay.

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated, incorrect or you did not stay at the hostel that you are commenting on.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

We will not publish comments that include full staff names, irrespective of whether your comment is positive or negative.

First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If you make a negative comment, we will remove any reference to particular staff members.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS

If there have been any major changes such as major hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.
