    Fantastic hostel - great location, wonderful staff, exceptionally comfy and clean rooms and facilities, AND you're able to hire surfboards, bodyboards, paddle boards and kayaks for free!! Amazing!
    Only negative I could find was that in a room of 6 people there were only 4 lockers available, but at least there were any!
    Would definitely stay again!!

    The hostel was perfect! Rooms clean and large, enough showers except when everybody came from "sunset kayaking" and wanted to shower all at the same time. Free boards and stuff to enjoy the water. A little outside the center (15 min walk) close to a lovely path (that leads to the city centre) along a river. I saw a kingfisher there fishing! The staff is very helpful, kitchen well organised, and there is even a little swimming pool ;-) And, free wifi!

    Great hostel inbetween town (15mins walk) and beach (10mins walk). Mini bus is waiting for you when you get off greyhound, even at 6.20am. Was able to checkin at 8am and get into bed, much appreciated after night coach. Sausage BBQ on Wed, $3, very social. Great small hostel. Clean and friendly. Free Canoes for river across the road! $5 bike hike. Excellent.

    Hello again! As mentioned last time, I'm now the mini bus driver for pick ups & drop offs for Aussitel hostel, for people getting on and off both the Greyhound and Premier coaches. There is a bus at 5:25am which means I wake up at 4:45am and leave here at 5am. There's also a 10:50pm bus which means I leave here at 10:30pm. The meeting point is less …

    Hello from Coffs Harbour! My train arrived here at 9pm last Monday (15th), and I made the short 5 minute walk to my hostel with a few northern lads I'd met on the train. I'd heard very good things about Aussitel Backpackers, and can confirm they are all spot on, it's a lovely hostel! Small and friendly, with free wifi, surfboards, kayak, …

    Escaping the high rises and crowds of people from the city, we made our way north. Jumping in a fancy white hybrid rental car, we departed in style, exiting through several tunnels until we hit the freeway. The drive was much rockier than I expected.. Not the road itself, but rather the surrounding landscape on either side of me. Felt similar to …

    Man this place is awesome! Sunday morning we pick up our rental car and our next stop - Port Macquarie and a place called "Ozzie Pozzie". What a nice place this was! Pool, pool table, ping pong, air hockey, fooseball...! We went to the grocery store and whipped up a wonderful dinner - steak, chicken, chicken wings, sliders, mushrooms, onions, …

    Woke up to nice and sunny weather, so too the chance to go and rent a canoe!
    There was a trolly to transport the canoe, which was handy and even more that there was a jetty to launch it. Ari wasn’t too happy about the canoe wobbling about, but managed to get it. The current was really strong, so we headed down river towards the beach to …
