After checking all options I made a gut decision and booked a 5 day Surf&Stay package at Ozzi Pozzi's - best decision ever!!! Super friendly and caring staff Ruby quickly booked me in at Soul...

Stayed here for a couple of nights in a 4 bed dorm. The dorm was in the corner and seemed a bit cramped. Also there was no ladder to my top bunk. Apart from that the hostel was very nice. The rooms and common areas were kept clean and tidy. The kitchen was spacious and well stocked with cooking utensils.... More

I spent 1 night there with my boyfriend ; we shared a dorm with 2 girls. The staff is nice, everything is clean, the kitchen is well organised. The beds grate but despite that we had a good night. If you have a car you can park it outside. I'll recommand this place.

I passed just one night. Nice hostel. Very good and soft mattress and big pillow ! Clean. Staff cool. But really noisy, the room is not soundprouf. The bathroom is really small only 2 showers and 2 wc. The city is not so far. It s à good place probably in summer.

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
