quiet during the week but it is a small town so it was expected hostel had so much space and loved the hammocks around the pool. was really nice i couldnt fault it.


Port Macquarie is a more quiet coastal town, or like one of the many pieces of rock art claims: "A nice drinking town with a serious phishing problem". The YHA is a bit smaller than many which gives a great atmospere, staff is great, the place is clean and early morning surfing is amazing... Cheeqie the house parrot needs to learn some manners though, thats really no way to whistle at guests!


Staff were really nice here. Dorm was a bit dank smelling, but okay. Hostel was really clean with good kitchen, reading room, big tv room, lounge area, bird aviary, tours. We booked whale watching for only $35AU and was incredible. Overall good stay. Can see wild koalas only 10 mins walk from hostel. Really cool place.


The hostel is well located and is walking distance to town and the beach. The staff are lovely and make sure you're enjoying the stay!!


Best hostel I've ever stayed in! The atmosphere is great and the staff makes you feel very welcome. It's like home away from home!

Very nice staff (mainly dealt with Ruby) and atmosphere. One minor complaint: reach of wifi slightly limited.
