    A fantastic hostel and a must stay for anyone in the Port Stephens area. Mark and Sandy are so friendly and helpful and went over and above to make sure that everyone was happy and enjoying their stay. They really understand what you are looking for and offer lots of freebies as well as booking up any tours you might want to go to. The location is beautiful and the facilities are the best!

    Cabins in a rainforest - the sort of place that people travel far to findand it is right on our doorstep. We will return. Only problem is that there is very little public transport.

    Had a wonderful stay here with my wife - the setting is amazing and reminded us of the YHA in Punakaiki in New Zealand.

    Samurai Beach Bungalows is a nice place to stay. The rooms are very comfortable. And, best of all, they are surrounded by nature so we were in contact with all the plants and animals of the area. If you are lucky you will see a koala! The staff is really friendly and helpful. The hostel provides free wi-fi and discounts to go to some attractions and pay less money for the buses in the area.

    They had a campfire both times I'd been there. Sitting there with a very charming young man playing guitar and all of us sharing our stories at the fire was very blissful. Definitely wish to go back the next chance I get. Very peaceful and beautiful place. The bungalows are nice and cozy.

    It was good, bit cold so hard to say how the atmosphere is when it's a bit hotter. It looked good though, clean room and very friendly staff!
