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... More

Great place to stay for a view nights. The hostel was clean and cosy. The Staff members were very Nice as Well. They gave good tips and made the stay in the hostel a lot of fun. Would have been even better if there were lockers were you can keep your expensive stuff.

Arrived late by bus and was therefore unable to be picked up, however, it was only a 10 minute walk. Only had 1 day here and the manager was very friendly and helpful in pointing out where to go in Port Macquarie and how best to spend our time there. The wifi was free which is always a bonus, everything... More

The hostel was well furnished and cozy. The best part was the people. I stayed there in the off season and I was able to not only meet everyone there, but travel a bit with them afterwards. Colin, the manager of the hostel for the duration of my stay, was very friendly and not only told us about all of... More

Having stayed in a few backpackers I found that this one in Port Macquarie was quite friendly, extremely clean and just what we needed for a one night stay (possibly longer if we needed to). Colin in reception was really friendly, giving us directions into town, recommending somewhere for dinner, and something to do the next day if we wanted,... More

We stayed here for one night as a stop over and it was fine for then but wouldn't have wanted to stay much longer. To be honest there's not an awful lot to do in Port Macquarie and there wasn't really much going on in the hostel either. It's very small and pretty basic. The rooms were small, they were... More

We stayed at the Port Macquerie Backpackers for one night in March 2014. It had been raining straight for two days and unfortunately rained during our whole time in Port Macquarie. The evening staff at the hostel was extremely friendly and the rooms clean even if on the small side. The kitchen is however very poorly equipped for the number... More

I'd booked 2 nights here but ended up staying 4 as it was such a lovely atmosphere. The staff are all extremely nice and helpful, everything was clean. The free shuttle is very useful. The hostel is very good value for money! If you're passing by Port M, i would definitely recommend it!

Unfortunatley I just stayed here for 2 nights - I really would have loved to stay longer! It´s a small, quiet and comfy Hostel with great staff and such a great atmosphere. They really know what backpackers want and try their best to keep you happy and help you. I really recommend this hostel, it´s worth a stop in Port... More
