Absolutely one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Lovely bohemian interior, nice rooms, tabletennis, a pool with hotel-like lounge area, a pool table, tablesoccer, clean and big kitchen, loads of places to hang out, friendly and laid-back staff... Nothing to improve 😊

I love this hostel, I was meant to come for a week on my way to Byron Bay and ended up staying for two weeks. I'm now back here for a week. The staff are so friendly and make you feel so welcome. They are more like friends rather than members of staff (obviously they still run everything very well...

So glad we ran across this hostel! Wonderful outdoor spaces, super helpful and engaging staff, friendly guests. Free easy parking on street, clean rooms with big lockers, decent bathrooms, and nice kitchen area. Only downside was wifi was rather slow and spotty even right next to the reception. The staff helped recommend and book a wonderful whale watching trip which...

Stayed as an overnight in a double room, the room was spacious with a basin in the room, which was handy. The toilets and shower facilities were very clean and well organised. Excellent location, will definitely return and recommend to others.

My partner and I stayed here for one night in a queen room with ensuite over the June long weekend. The room was basic but fairly comfortable. The floors were tile which was really cold for the feet and there was no heating, but it's a youth hostel anyway. Most backpackers are probably out drinking and sight seeing and what...

We stayed here for 3 nights and after travelling the east coast, this was our favourite hostel. The hostel has good social areas; games room, pool, tv room, table tennis tables etc.. We had a private ensuite room which was nice and clean. The staff were really friendly, I would definitely recommend the sunrise surfing with Kit! It's worth the...

This was my first hostel on my eastcoast trip, had only 1 night (2days) in the hostel. Staff is super friendly and would highly recommend the 06:00 surfing lesson for only 35 dollars. Clean and good service!

Ozzie Pozzie Backpackers has a terrific atmosphere. Everyone in the common areas are friendly and chatting to each other. Does this seem like a weird thing to write? Maybe. But we have been backpacking for 30 years and we hate arriving somewhere to find everyone ignoring each other while they stare at a screen booking their next night's accommodation (Sorry...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ozzie Pozzie is Port Macquarie’s most highly recommended resort youth hostel by "Lonely Planet" and "Lets-Go" and Port Macquarie’s best value and cheap youth hostel accommodation. While this quiet youth hostels location features a great social atmosphere in a tropical setting, it is only 5 mins walk from town, shops and bars. Richard used his 8 years of backpacking hostels experience to renovate and extend Ozzie Pozzie and operate it as a friendly fun-filled hostel with lots of free extras. Newly extended it is spotlessly clean with two cosy courtyards to meet and greet, and lounges & hammocks to enjoy in a cabana around a palm fringed pool. ... more   less
