Property Information:

Be at home at the youngest and funnest hostel in town. Free WiFi, computers and 24 hour greyhound pick up. We offer trips to the beach with actual surfers, free pool table, board games, DVDs, tea, coffee and midday checkout! Owned by young backpackers like you, it is a funky and arty surf cottage.

Proudly Awarded ' Best Staff 2013 ' in Oceania!!

As the buses often arrive in town late, we offer 24 hour greyhound pick up (please email us before 7pm). We also allow you to relax and use the hostel facilities for free while you are waiting for your night bus to depart.

Our location is perfect; we are by far the closest hostel to the beach as well as the koala hospital, we are also the closest hostel to the bars and town centre. Just check out our location!.

Like you, we want to keep the world healthy; which is why we get our power directly from the sun via our recently installed solar panels. We also have filtered rainwater tanks for our showers and bathroom sinks.

We don’t turn the lights off at 2230. We love the night – we love to socialise. So 24 hour kitchen and lounge area are yours. Our main aim is to make you feel like the hostel is your home too.

It is a small friendly hostel owned by young backpackers like you, who always dreamed of one day owning their own hostel. For this reason it has a very unique atmosphere. The staff/owners want to meet you, and share their backpacking adventures with you, they want to take you for a surf, and show you the beauty of Port Macquarie. But most importantly, they make an effort to make you feel at home and introduce you to other guests.

It is a funky hostel with great music and beautiful art. A friend of ours just won the ‘Rawawards Austrian visual artist of the year” and being the amazing friend she is, she has been up here painting giant artworks on our walls.

So if you are a little adventures, a little quirky, and want something different than your average ‘Mr Monopoly’ hostel, then come join us.

Welcome Vlkommen Bienvenue Huan ying Vitejte Velkommen Welkom Bonvenon Tere tulemast Tervetuloa Wolkom Willkommen

Our target market is Backpackers between the ages of 18-35. While we are happy to accept guests outside this age group (and some of our most amazing guests have been older), older guests should be aware that we are structured to appeal to a younger market. So if you are young at heart, arty and alternative - please join us, However if you are looking for a more big chain type hostel - then please seek accommodation at one of the other great hostels in town.

    Beachside Backpackers was a friendly hostel with great people and an easy going, warm atmosphere. We would definitely stay here again. The free ride to the bus in the early hours of the morning was really good and we were able to use the facilities until our bus came at 00:55. I would highly recommend this hostel for their friendly and helpful staff, excellent facilities and great location.
