This is my third time back at this amazing hostel. It really one of the most relaxing places I have stayed. Mark and Sandy the owners are extremely friendly and helpful and always make sure you have a pleasant stay. Excellent facilities, the games room is a great place to socialise and a nice touch, as well as the beautiful... More

I really recommend this place! As i arrived i loved this YHA. You stay in the nature but there are buses to take you to the beautiful beaches or to the supermarket. If there is no bus, anyone else will take you there. We wanted to stay only for one night, but after this one night we extended our stay... More

I planned to stay for just one night and ended up staying 9 as I just fell in love with this place! I'd prefer this hostel than any of the 5 star Hotels I've been to before. The place is just amazing, the pool was always clean and so was the outdoor kitchen where we spend lots of time having... More

Excellent place to stay. Sandy and Mark are nice and helpful. Friendly people, beautiful places. We really enjoyed our time here. We were lucky that the weather wasn't so bad during our stay in Port Stephen. It's very chill here so we wish we could stay for longer to spread things out a little and do more. However in general...

Nice scenery but too far away from anywhere and bunk rooms too small and bed uncomfortable. No where to store stuff in the bunk room as it is too crowded and only a chest of draws that was already full. Swimming pool had not been cleaned and was a green colour and not suitable for swimming. Extremely disappointed and will... More

The hostel is special. You live in bungalows, which are situated in a small "forest". Birds fly around and sing. It's a really nice surrounding and the bungalows are quite big and clean. The kitchen area is outside but really nice. They even have a pool and organise different activities. The staff is super friendly. I liked this hostel a... More

Stayed here for one night on our way down to Sydney, wish we could have stayed longer. The owners were lovely and very helpful. They gave us good information on the surrounding area where to eat etc and also have us the choice of many dvds to enjoy free of cost for the night. The cabins were nice, very clean... More

Stunning location: woken up by the plentiful exotic bird noises in the morning, stepping out of our bungalow and immediately being surrounded by the beautiful nature/the greens of the rainforest. Very relaxing. The pool looked amazing but we didn't use it, as it was winter and thus too cold. WiFi is free but has no range in the bungalows, only... More
