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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

I planned to stay for just one night and ended up staying 9 as I just fell in love with this place! I'd prefer this hostel than any of the 5 star Hotels I've been to before. The place is just amazing, the pool was always clean and so was the outdoor kitchen where we spend lots of time having...

Excellent place to stay. Sandy and Mark are nice and helpful. Friendly people, beautiful places. We really enjoyed our time here. We were lucky that the weather wasn't so bad during our stay in Port Stephen. It's very chill here so we wish we could stay for longer to spread things out a little and do more. However in general...
