I love this hostel. You feel like you are on a bush retreat with great views over Pittwater and a laid back feeling. The kayaks are very easy to use and we really enjoyed exploring Towlers Bay. The bush walk up to the lookout is also enjoyable with lovely bush and a spectacular view over Pittwater. The new managers are welcoming and very friendly and knowledgeable. We appreciated the msg before we arrived to ask if we needed directions. Its well worth carrying your food up the hill to stay here.

I love the Pittwater hostel. this place is a magic, peaceful, healthy, environmentalist, everything I love. I did a bushwalking this time, we found a beautiful place to seat and enjoy the view. To love this place, you need to forget about internet or social interaction, because Pittwater hostel is located in the middle of bush. You need also love animals, forest and environmental. In the hostel they have a compost bins, recycle bins, awareness with energy and water.

After a strenuous climb, we were overjoyed to arrive at the Hostel. It is a beautiful building with a ton of history, and we felt relaxed almost instantly. The location is spectacular. We stayed for 2 nights, but felt like we had been away for a week. We'll definitely return.

The Pittwater YHA is an amazing little retreat perched upon on hill, overlooking the water. The staff were very friendly, everything was very clean, and the kitchen was perfectly suitable for all of our needs. The lounge room is also lovely.
