The Backpackers Beach House is a hidden treasure! Well worth the distance if you have wheels. Located on St Margaret’s Bay, the house looks right out at the bay and there is a sandy beach minutes away along a shared-use trail at the back of the property. Michelle, who manages both Backpacker Hostel properties, is a super welcoming host with lots of helpful tips & info. The house is well-equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We loved it so much we ended up extending our stay!

I had a really nice time here, even though I was the only one! The property is just open again as a hostel after Covid. To get there, you really need a car, but it’s so worth it, since a car then allows you to explore lots of the surrounding towns/markets. The house is quiet and feels more like a bed and breakfast than a traditional hostel. It has a good kitchen, but also there are many places around to eat. Michelle was very attentive and good at suggesting things to see! Would stay again!

The view was amazing from the front windows. It was nice and quiet, since we went off season. The place was clean and friendly. Michelle called me to check up and give some suggestions on where to go during our visit. Would love to revisit when the weather is warmer to experience the beach in a different way.
