Liked: This is in my opinion the best backpackers in the whole of the east coast. A far cry from the city based hotel like hostels that have no character and no characters. The owner is wicked and the staff can help you with just about anything! There are different activities going on throughout the week and daily surfing trips. It is a party hostel and should be respected as such!

Disliked: Not being able to live there.

Liked: Small, nice hostel with good wifi in the room. It was clean, the kitchen was nice and I really liked staying here.

Disliked: I don't think I have anything to complane about. Maybe that the doors don't lock them self when you close them and the Landry service was not that great.

Liked: I have been to many places around this earth but never felt as home as in this hostel even when being so far away from home. The staff is not only staff but like a good mate to everyone who stays there. The hostel has a cosy common room with awesome couches and there's always something on in the evenings. Cleanliness is good, beds are comfy, blankets are warm. Kitchen has everything you might need (and a lot of free food shelves). It is definitely worth going !!

Disliked: Nothing, didn't like when I had to leave

Liked: This place is THE place to go in Port Macquarie. It's a unique hostel due to its spcial staff! They are very friendly, show you around , go surfing, go to a wine tasting and treat you as if theyd known you forever. The hostel is actually a big house, with a living room, a kitchen and its rooms. The atmophere is very cosy, chilled and warm. If youre looking for an awesome time, go here.Awesome staff, awesome accomodation, awesome location.
