Arrived late by bus and was therefore unable to be picked up, however, it was only a 10 minute walk. Only had 1 day here and the manager was very friendly and helpful in pointing out where to go in Port Macquarie and how best to spend our time there. The wifi was free which is always a bonus, everything was clean and the town itself was only a short walk away. Port Macquarie is certainly a place to visit but probably not for more than 2 or 3 days. The only issue I found in the hostel was that there were no plug sockets in the rooms so found it difficult to charge phones etc.
