We stayed in the teepee which was a really interesting experience, the view from here was amazing, really nice to wake up to in the morning, with a table and benches so you can sit with a cup of tea and enjoy the view ! There are lots of cool places to sit like chairs hanging from the tree and... More

We had a great stay here, very friendly staff with great facilities. One night a long term guest cooked a BBQ for everyone staying at the hostel, I thank him again! They have the option to camp, stay in a tepee or to stay in a dorm room. They also offer a free shuttle to town as it is a... More

Everyone knows what folks go to Nimbin for, and that being the case, you won't have trouble at Nimbin Rox. The manager at the desk was most helpful. The rooms are basic but have A/C, there are communal bathrooms and hot water for the showers, and a communal living area and kitchen with TV and movies. The best part for... More

the receptionist was perfectly disguised as a hippy, but behave like the stiffest Brit I ever met. Monotonous voice, avoiding eye contact, he reminded me of MArvin the paranoid android from the hitchhikers guide through the galaxy, hating life and all. I would have left immediately for this, but the town and nearest hostel is far away, especially with luggage.... More

We had a late check in and got welcomed by some British dude who was obviously high on some drug and just couldn't handle anything. The hostel itself located at a beautiful spot, it's unfortunately just not ran and maintained properly.

I'm truly amazed by this hostel!!! As a low-budget backpacker I spent a lot of time in hostels and I must say this one is amazing! I stayed three times at this place and I totally love it! The region around this place is beautiful, the view from the camping site, especially the van site, is magnificent. Nothing but nature... More

What a gem! We had ignored all the "don't stay in Nimbin more than a few hours" advice and aren't we glad we did! Nimbin is what it is..funky, colourful and liberal with some madness thrown in.

Absolutely loved this hostel, from the hammocks to the tropical pool I can't find any fault whatsoever! Staff are so helpful and the scenery is amazing, it looks out on the famous nimbin rocks (hence the name) and the wildlife is a real bonus. Can't wait to return!
