Honestly the coolest hostel I’ve stayed in so far, the experience is worth every penny. The staff are friendly and inviting and the dorms are clean and comfortable. Also a really ideal location as bud stop just outside the hostel. Would highly recommend

I highly recommend Port Stephens YHA, especially for its location in the middle of nature. I loved staying in Bungalows sorrounded by trees and listening to the sounds of birds. I think it's the best value for money you can get! I would definitely come back to YHA if I were back in Port Stephens again. Thanks!! The staff is very friendly and will help you and advice on anything you need to know about what to do during your stay in Port Stephens.

An amazing hostel experience! The area around has some of the most beautiful beaches, but some of them are a bit further away from the hostel so a car is recommended. The Tomaree Summit hike is a must! As well as the trail walk/run from Zenith beach to Box beach.

The room was great! Very quiet. Lovely balcony outside set in the rainforest. The outdoor, covered kitchen area is also great! The games room was not so great. Very dark and dated and not very cozy. A bit pointless. WIFI in our room was non-existent. Having said this, I would stay again. This is because the gardens were gorgeous including birds etc. Staff is great. Guests are great. Kitchen area great. You do need a car to get here (or a bus).

CUSTOMER REVIEWS ON YHA.COM.AU

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.

Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
