We stayed in one of the deluxe bungalows which I highly recommended for any couple coming to port Stephens for a weekend. For this being a youth hostel it's supper quiet and all the rooms and bungalows are spread across the beautiful couple of acres of Forrest. It's located nice and close to both Anna bay and Nelson bay which... More

This place has a world of charm :) It is still very bushy and natural in its environment.....just like a wilderness escape! The cabins themselves are clean, simple and comfortable. We stayed in a standard room that shares a bathroom with 1 other room- this was a point of concern for my boyfriend as he prefers privacy and convenience especially... More

I stayed here for two nights when I travelled up for a triathlon. This was my first time staying at a backpackers & I was pleasantly surprised!! Super clean & comfy bungalow set in a gorgeous rainforest. Small but adequate share bathroom. Only downfalls- super small shower with quite ordinary water pressure & temperature control. Very reasonably priced. Wish I... More

Will no longer pay for a hotel now. Why would you. Lovely location. Gorgeous outdoor kitchen. 5mins from the beach. Fastastic price. Spent weeks there after came down with gangerous appendicitis. Will definitely be back when I can.

We recently stayed here and discovered a little gem! We've stayed in hundreds of backpackers around the world and can quite comfortably say that this is one of the best. With the friendliest owners ever (Mark, Sandy and Bo the dog) you instantly feel welcomed and at ease and they always go the extra mile. The location is great, an... More

As a solo traveller it can be quite overwhelming when you arrive at a new area and new hostel into the unknown but from the moment I arrived at samurai beach bungalows I felt welcomed by Sandy and Mark the owners and Bo the dog. It's like a big family that just keeps opening their doors to more and more... More

I absolutely loved my stay at Samurai. Beautiful location in a mini forest and so close to such beautiful beaches and places to discover. Wonderful staff, very friendly and helpful. Great Bush kitchen, really communal and very Ozzy. Place kept clean and tidy. Would visit again!

Have stayed in YHAs before and had positive and happy experiences but was booted out on to the street late afternoon heading into night time after an unfortunate misunderstanding with a staff member over a bunk bed. Did nothing illegal and ended up staying at a bus stop outdoors overnight having to wait for a bus that only goes once... 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
