    Bed in 6-Bed Female Dormitory Room

    Great small hostel”

    It was nice to go to this nice and reasonable sized hostel. We like the fact it was an historic building. The 6 bed dormitory were spacious, enough space for everybody. The only thing that made us feel a bit uneasy is that the girls shower are only separated by kinda blurred windows instead of normal wall, so you could actually see each other naked ! I would go back there if in Port Macquarie again

    I only stayed one night - single room. Jess was rally helpful with my booking, and Ben helped me with some printing in the morning. The place is so well-run, friendly, clean and cheerful. I loved all the heritage features. NB room was chilly - winter's night - but second doona provided by hostel helped :)

    YHA is always better by Far”

    No Towel provided, no top sheet, booked a two bid twin room, but was given a 6 bed dorm room. Key pad lock on front door is in the dark requiring a torch to enter entry code. No breakfast provided despite advertised as such as being included in the price. Staff park in such a way that make guest parking very difficult.
