Port Stephens YHA

Gorgeous beaches, lush bushland, stunning bay and sea views and a great chill-out spot - that's Port Stephens and its award-winning YHA.

Escape to this YHA hostel set in rainforest gardens - stay in the bungalows nestled amongst the trees, spot a koala from your balcony and chill by the hostel swimming pool. This hostel has free Wi-Fi, BBQ facilities, pool table, sand boards, and bikes available for hire.

Port Stephens is a great short break from Sydney – only 2 ½ hours by road, or use your Opal card to travel by train to Newcastle and then by Port Stephens coaches to Port Stephens from only $8.30.

  • Superb place with laughing Kookaburrahs at your door. No problem at all. We were welcomed by a person just return to job after 7 years. She has been great with us.

  • Great place to stay. Highly recommend. More like a tropical resort than a YHA hostel. Very friendly and helpful staff.
