I loved my stay at this hostel. It's very cozy and clean. The beds are super comfortable and you get real duvets. That gave me the feeling of being home. The bathrooms are new and very clean. Thanks to everyone who is working there, you were fantastic! Keep it up :) this is absolutely one of my favourite hostels!!


The house is amazing, I really enjoyed the TV room. The kitchen is well equiped and the pool area is really nice made. There's milky glass used for seperating the showers and you might see the shape of the person showering next to you through the glass, but buthrooms are seperated by gender so that's ok :) You're getting a pickup from bus station if you are arriving by bus (without telling them on before hand) and they drop you off again.


Very nice and friendly staff. Can use all the facilities even after checkout, and for an extra fee (which is alright given the fair prices) even until late in the night. Shuttle busses to the bus stop and the Koala Hospital are extra goodies.


Hostel with very good atmosphere, the staff friendly and very helpful. Free WiFi! The Manager of the Hostel invitied us to a spontanious Trip to wild kangaroos. Also you're might be lucky an see wild Koalas and dolphins in the City and the bay.


I really enjoyed this hostel! The atmosphere is friendly and social. It's clean, warm, in a good location, and also has a pool! The kitchen is well stocked so it was easy to cook a nice meal at the end of a busy day! I highly recommend it!


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! :)
