Having stayed in a few backpackers I found that this one in Port Macquarie was quite friendly, extremely clean and just what we needed for a one night stay (possibly longer if we needed to).
Colin in reception was really friendly, giving us directions into town, recommending somewhere for dinner, and something to do the next day if we wanted, a very thorough tour of the house, showing us to our room, kitchen and then inviting us to a gathering to watch the AFL.
Our room was a bit small, but big enough.
The ladies bathroom facilities were spotless, and there was plenty of hot water.
There appears to be a good tour desk.
We didn't use the kitchen, other than the fridge, but thought that it looked quite good.
