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.

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
