The location is great and the staff also dropped us off at the coach station in time for our greyhound when we checked out which was incredibly helpful The staff are all friendly and welcoming...

This backpackers is a nice and clean place to rest while exploring Port Macquarie. The kitchen set up is great, with plenty of bench space to cook, lots of different pots and pans to use and plenty of storage space for your own food. The lounge and outdoor lounge area are great, with a fire place lit at night and... More

Stayed for two nights on trip between Sydney and Melbourne. Very pleased to see a pickup waiting for us at the Greyhound drop off. Ruby was super friendly and funny. Place was great with a comfortable room and great locale. One minor downside was the free wi-if was very sketchy and the staff was very indifferent about it. Would recommend.

Cheap and comfortable place to stay. The rooms, bathroom and toilet were very clean. Fun atmosphere with a pool, open area to chill and table tennis table. Close walk into town. The workers maybe come across as a but unhelpful, but all round nice place to stay

The heart and soul of the hostel is their lovely receptionist and all round runner around. Hostel was clean tidy and well kept. Sheltering from the storm here was a dream. Free good wifi and the kitchen is well quipped. Didn't use the tv room or pool. Was going to stay 2 nights ended up staying 3. Love Ozzie pozzie.... More

Stayed two nights on our way up the coast. Did the job - accommodated our very late arrival by leaving us keys and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Easy to find. Kitchen large and functional and bathrooms fine, and there's a pool which we didn't use, and a tv room with lots of videos, but smells of smoke as... More

Seemed pretty clean, apart from flies in the kitchen, but everything else was clean (including the bathrooms). Didn't stay here for long but think the smoking area in the courtyard right by the tv room would have annoyed me after a while as the tv room smelt like an ashtray. Also not that happy having to pay $5 to use... More

I was looking for an overnight stop to break up a solo drive from Sydney to Brisbane. Just a bed for the night and, as it was NSW school holidays, was a bit miffed at paying holiday rates for a few hours sleep. The cheapest private rooms were back packers. Well, it had been a long time but, why not?... More

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
