We came to Port Stephens for a weekend on a tour from Sydney and left 4 months later! The hostel is in such a beautiful area that it really does feel like you're in paradise. The cabins all have their own showers and toilets and the dorms are really clean. Mark and Sandy make you feel so welcome and at... More

Can't rate my experience at this hostel highly enough. We arrived on a Saturday morning expecting to stay for a two day tour in Port Stephens, four months later we still hadn't left! Initially we loved the place because of the chilled 'at one with nature' vibe. When we arrived we were greeted by Sandy who was so warm and... More

We stayed here two nights, and although we were not there much it is a very unique place and the people are super friendly. The jungle setting is wonderful, plenty of spiders around so prepare for that, but it was a great place to stay.

Was the best place to stay on our journey. If we had found this beauty in the beginning, we had not traveled the whole continent, we would had let the time flow only at port Stephens samurai beach :) Thanks guys!

We stayed at Samurai over christmas this year and it couldn't have been better :) The bugalows lived up to the pictures, the rain forest feel was like a vacation in itself, and with it's own bus stop and central location it was easy to see all the sights in Port Stephens. Mark and Sandy (the owners) make it easy... More

I first came in 2010 and plan to stay 2 nights ended up extending it to 5. So when I knew I would be going past it again beginning of december 2013 I knew I would want 4 days minimum, but it just wasn't enough time so on the way back to Sydney I have just checked in for another... More

Such an incredible hostel that I extended my stay and still wish I could have stayed longer. Mark and Sandy are great hosts that will help you in anyway possible. The additional staff on sight are very friendly and approachable, making you feel at home in no time. I stayed in a 5-person room that was kept very clean, and... More

Definitely the most nature inspiring hostel I have stayed in in Australia. The lovely cabins are set in a wonderful wooded area, where you can hear koalas at night and if you're lucky, have a possum jump (or fall) onto your roof in the middle of the night. The cabin I was in was 5-person and was clean and comfortable.... More

Well from 10 mins at the hostel I felt at home and welcomed by family and new friends :) I just love the peacefulness vibe of the place but when you want some excitement its not hard to create a group dinner and drinks or singing and socializing by the fire. I love that just a 15 min bike ride... More

I came to the hostel after being in Sydney for three days in a state of jetlag! The hostel completely cured this. The dorms are nice with a fridge and bathroom just next door. The atmosphere is chilled and the people I met were so nice (a lovely mix of both young and older)! Especially the owners Mark and Sandy... More
