I popped over this backpackers hostel just for one night during my trip on the road. It was definitively what I needed, friendly, easy, very clean, comfy beds, amazing shower and toilet always clean. Chilly spaces outside with so cool couches! Relaxing place, perfect for a quick rest.

Didnt plan on staying in Port Macquarie but I after doing so it is a must and if you do Port Macquarie Backpackers is the place to do it.

Small, homely, friendly hostel which was quite refreshing after staying in a few YHA's recently! Clean rooms, with a clean duvet for a change, hot showers, even a small swimming pool. The hostel had daily trips to the koala hospital (highly recommend!) and to do some kangaroo watching. As for the area itself, it's very quiet and a bit of... More

I really made such a good experience with Port Macquarie Backpackers! First of all: it's true, you just pay for your bed and the rest is for free. So you can get bikes and body boards, they pick you up and drop you off at the bus station, they take you to watch the Kangaroos and give you a lift... More

Lovely hostel with an amazing atmosphere. The staff is friendly and helpful. They will bring you to the wild kangaroos during the evening. The rooms are good and clean. The swimmingpool is nice and a great place to hangout and have a few drinks! The outside of the hostel doesn't look great, but the inside is good and makes it... More

Great atmosphere, really friendly staff, sociable and a great playlist!! Organised trips to the koala sanctuary and even got a lift to the local climbing centre. The pool table and dvd's means even if it's rainy there's still things to do. Thanks for everything guys!

We stay there just for one night and it was just enough. We had a really small room for 4. No lockers no mirrors... But the common rooms were neat and tidy. And the backpack is really cute with a pool at the back. The koala hospital is the most amazing thing to visit :)

After arriving at port Macquarie backpackers we were very tired after a super long trip on the greyhound and just wanted to go to bed. We were given our room, which was a four dorm and could only just about fit 2 people in without backpacks. Our room was in-between the main road where the traffic lights where and the... More
