    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.

    A 'surprise' visit to Coffs Harbour!

    A travel blog entry by mattchurch7 on Nov 23, 2015

    The next chapter had in store for me.........COFFS HARBOUR! I could not resist squeezing in a little visit to my second home here at Aussitel, so I booked the train a couple of weeks ago, and attempted to keep my return a secret by booking under a different name. However, I am a habitually bad liar and the my story was seen through, quickly turning …

    Hi everybody....hi Doctor Nick! This is my final blog post from Coffs Harbour (cue the violins), before I go to attempt some actual travelling. Monday 5th and a busy start to the week, with me dropping off 7 people for the now 6:25am bus (yes I get an extra hour in bed because the clocks went back an hour)! To celebrate such a momentous victory, I …

    Better late than never, here we are once again! Don't worry, I'm home in 2 months, so not much more to endure. Probably a good thing as I'm growing ever more forgetful! Monday 21st began by dropping off 3 for the early bus to Byron Bay, sadly those 3 were Jess, Brooke & Silje! They had pretty much become part of the Aussitel family so it was sad to …

    G'day and welcome to another entry from the *world's best blog (* up for debate)! Time has certainly slipped away from me yet again, and playing catch up means I'll end up writing two blogs this week as I'm 3 weeks behind! So let's get started, with Wednesday 9th September. It began in typical mini bus matt fashion, with 2 people needing picking up …

    *warning - this blog is lengthy* Hello again! Another 2 weeks have gone by and again, I've hardly blinked. Today is September 7th and I have just finished my 12th week here at Aussitel, which is scary as I'm two-thirds of the way through my stay! Only 6 weeks (and 3 blogs) to doubt they'll race by. Let us begin the latest chapter on Monday …
