Great hostel, close to everything, including the greyhound stop. It's small with a homey feeling, and the manager will go out of his way to make sure you have a great time while you are there. I was picked up at the bus stop without me having asked for it, and later we drove to the koala hospital with some of the other backpackers, to a beer tasting and to watch kangaroos on a golf course :-D Everything is clean and well kept and it's easy to meet other travelers if you are traveling alone.

Stayed in a double room which was small but good enough. The hostel itselfses is clean, not too far from the city centre and supermarkets. The atmosphere have been good even with not too many people around. Staff is good and very helpful!


Great little hostel! With comfortable beds, free wifi and super friendly staff, it's a friendly atmosphere for backpackers. PLUS - plenty of opportunities to see wildlife at the local koala hospital and kangaroo spotting! Would recommend to all.

Awesome little hostel! Really nice and friendly staff (special thanks to Colin!) - they really want to make you feel at home. Big and well equipped kitchen, nice lounge, clean bathrooms, comfy beds - and so many things for free! If you're ever going to Port Macquarie I would definitely recommend this hostel! :)


The staff was really nice, we enjoyed our stay at this great place where everyone will feel like a home! A special thanks to Roman!


Very nice backpacker !! :D Team is awesome and the atmosphere is very cool. There is a good spirit in this venue. We went to the beach thanks to hostel shuttle and we rented body board available at hostel, we spent very good time in Port Macquarie. Do not hesitate, go visit Port Macquarie !! ;D
