About Port Macquarie Backpackers

Don’t sit on the bus for 13 hours going to Byron bay, Stop at beautiful Port Macquarie! Port Macquarie Backpackers is the closest hostel to the bus stop so if you’re catching the night bus it’s a straight 700m walk to your bed! You can even see the hostel from the bus stop. Impossible to get lost and you don’t have to walk for miles in the middle of the night. With 24hr check-in, you can get a good night’s sleep before exploring Port Mac!

Pay for your bed - the rest is free! Unlimited WiFi, bus pick up, swimming pool, beach & koala hospital shuttle, pool table, coffee tea & sugar, body boards, snorkel gear, fishing rods AND kangaroo sunset tour. Join the fun at our weekly movie night, trivia night and the Saturday pub crawl. All free for you – no hidden costs. There is no better place or value for money to enjoy Port Macquarie!

Port Macquarie Backpackers is the original and the most awarded hostel in town. There is always something new like the new kitchen installed in 2015 - including four superb cooking stations all in a central island to bring sociability to the kitchen. New mattresses and linen in November 2016.

People say Port Macquarie Backpackers has a homey feeling and that's exactly what it is, a big home! It’s the oldest house in Port Macquarie and Elsinore (that's her name) has a beautiful feel about her as you walk though the big hallway, nothing like the usual sterile square box hostels you find elsewhere. Owned and operated by backpackers we have the friendliest staff on the east coast!

With 9 beaches in town there is always a good chance to have a beach almost to yourself. We have some of the nicest coast line in Australia and there is lots to see and do or just relax and chill on the veranda or swing in a hammock by the pool.

Please let us know your arrival time. If you are coming after 8.30 pm at night we will need to send you our door code. :)

Hope to be seeing you soon!

We are a travellers hostel and do not accept children, sorry.
