About the hostel

Sorry, we do not accept children in the hostel.

We are the youngest, funnest, and funkiest hostel in town. We love a few drinks, great music and a dash of art. If you are looking to meet new people, have a laugh, and to be a part of great activities then come join the fun.

Our location is perfect; we are the closest hostel to everything that matters. We are the only hostel within easy walking distance to the beach and koala hospital, we are also the closest hostel to the bars and town centre. Just check out our location on the hostel map view thingy! We are not the closest hostel to Mordor if you happen to have a ring you are trying to dispose of.

Like you, we want to keep the world healthy; which is why we get our power directly from the sun via our recently installed solar panels. We also have filtered rainwater tanks for our showers and bathroom sinks.

24 hour kitchen and lounge area are yours. Our main aim is to make you feel like the hostel is your home too.

We created this hostel for you. Yes, specifically for you. If you choose a different hostel it will be like we planned you a party and you didn't show up.

We are young backpackers who simply love backpacking, we are creating the type of hostel we love finding in our adventures around the world. For this reason the hostel has a very unique atmosphere. Our focus is on creating a nice friendly environment where people can meet other guests easily, whether it be over a beer or through various activities.

We also wanted a hostel with great art. A good friend of ours recently won the Australian Raw awards visual artist of the year - she has been furiously painting all types of beauty on our walls.


So if you are a little adventures, a little quirky, and want something different than your average 'Mr Monopoly' hostel, then come join us.

Welcome Vlkommen Bienvenue Huan ying Vitejte Velkommen Welkom Bonvenon Tere tulemast Tervetuloa Wolkom Willkommen

Our target market is Backpackers between the ages of 18-35. While we are happy to accept guests outside this age group (and some of our most amazing guests have been older), older guests should be aware that we are structured to appeal to a younger market. So if you are young at heart, arty and alternative - please join us, However if you are looking for a more big chain type hostel - then please seek accommodation at one of the other great hostels in town.

*There is a well behaved doggo here. She loves walks with guests but sorry if you are allergic

Please let us know if your arrival time is after midnight as we will need to send you our door codes and late check in procedures . :)

If you're arriving on the 5am bus and have not paid for the previous night you unfortunately can't access the hostel before 8,00 am as sometimes we need to sleep :) You can however use the comfy lounges on the side of the building, Alternatively, you can also watch the sunrise over the ocean only 5 minutes away.

This hostel has a 24 hour no cancellation policy.

We had a great time and felt very welcome throughout our stay. Ross, Cerys, and Vicky all went out of their way to help us and we were even given free surfboards for the local beach. Would definitely recommend the hostel to anyone staying in Port Macquarie!
