The vibe was very relaxed and everybody was very friendly. I would definitely recommend this place for being social, clean and quiet at night!

The hostel was clean and spacious. The 'beer garden' on the top floor was clean. The TV room had a cool seating set out, with tiered seating. The café on the ground floor is friendly and has a decent range of well priced food.


Yamba is a locality in northern New South Wales, Australia at the mouth of the Clarence River. The first European to visit the area was Matthew Flinders, who stopped in Yamba Bay for six days in July 1799. The town economy is strongly based on fishing and tourism, but has a diverse range of influences, due to the 'Sea Change' phenomena and the large number of baby boomers who are starting to retire to the warmer climates. In 2017, Yamba had a population of 6,135, but as a popular tourist destination, it can triple its population in the holiday period. In 2009 Yamba was voted the number 1 town in Australia by Australian Traveller Magazine. Yamba is known to have experienced the natural phenomenon known as sea foam.
