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... More

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... More

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... More

My friends and I really liked this hostel. The atmosphere is really nice. Our room was quite small, but it was comfortable. The kitchen is ok. The bathroom was a bit small but always surprisingly clean. The common areas were nice, there's a game room with ping-pong, pool table and a couple more stuff. The only thing I didn't like... More

Second time I have been here and absolutely a very great and relaxing hostel in a beautiful place. Staff is very enthousiastic and offers great trips. We went sunrise surfing, only 25 dollar for 3 hours surfing after a very nice sunrise. Would defenitly go here again!

Stayed here with a party of 6 for just 2 days but certainly impressed with this hostel. The facility as a whole was at the top end of backpacker accommodation that we have stayed in. the room was clean - as was the bedding, and the facilities, especially the pool were well maintained. the staff were very helpful. Great location... More

We got a twin room which consisted of a bunk bed. The beds were super comfortable so we had a great sleep. We were not disturbed by the usual rowdiness of being in hostel. It was surprisingly quiet. The bathrooms are big new and clean although the shower is tiny. There is ample car parking outside. There are also plenty... More

I wish I could give this place a 5* rating, but my late night arrival experience was terrible, so I had to go to 4*. I'll start with the great things - the sunrise surfing is great (especially if you've already had a few surf lessons). It's cheaper to go surfing in Yamba ($10), but the sunrise surfing here is...
