It is now both owned and run by a young group of friends (Nick, Jess, Giovanni and Jono). All 4 of us have spent a great part of the last 8 years backpacking around the world, so we know what makes a great backpackers! Therefore we offer our guests free high speed unlimited WiFi, free use of computers, free pickup from the greyhound (9am-10pm), free learner surfboards, twenty-four hour kitchen and lounge room, and finally a midday checkout time so you are not rushed in the morning.
Beachside backpackers is also by far the closest backpackers hostel to the beach in Port Macquarie. It is only a 3 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the centre of town. It is also the closest backpackers hostel to the koala park.
Our Hostel is a small alternative hostel in the middle of the action in Port Macquarie. We are a hostel focused on music, art, culture, and evening drinks. It is a homely backpackers both run and owned by 4 young friends who have spent a great part of the last 8 years traveling the world. Nicael lived in Sweden for a year and a half, spent some time in the USA and got lost in South America for 9 months. Jono and Jess lived in England for 2 years and have backpacked through Russia, Mongolia, China and South East Asia. Giovanni managed to make his way from Europe to Australia without taking a plane.
It is a hostel started by backpackers for backpackers, so no hidden expenses, no fun police, no awkward 70 year old women watching you with her 2 million cats. Our main aim is to show you a fun time and to make sure you feel comfortable and at home. We are young, we are friendly, we are pseudo-intellectual, we are creative, and we are exactly where you want to be while in Port Macquarie.
