Port Macquarie Backpackers is the most awarded hostel in town, renovated in 2011. People say it has a homely feeling and that's exactly what it is, a big home. It has never been easier to make new friends!
Free pick up and drop off from the bus stop, free beach and koala hospital shuttle bus, fast Internet and Wifi all day everyday, free bodyboards, free fishing rods and tackle, free tea, coffee and sugar all day, free pool table, free day trips to see kangaroos in the wild at sunset (very cool!), and special deals for pizza, ice cream and coffee everyday!
With 9 beaches in town and some of the nicest coast line on the north coast there is lots to do or just relax & chill on the veranda or swing in a hammock by the pool.
Come stay and play you will be amazed!
See you soon, Tony
