Good hostel with decent rooms but don't rent the bikes for $5. They are awful quality and fully rusted and will not get you through the hilly roads of Port. They need a major upgrade - even if they charged more for them. Had some good amenities but nothing was running (surfing lesson) due to lack of people interested in...

Nice hostel, good atmosphere, very clean, few very cheap activities. Do whale watching for $35.- u will see also some dolfins! They offer longterm accomodation in the back in shared houses, bit small rooms though and not the best place to stay but if u consider to settle down in pmq, it might be a good start for short term.

Stayed here during a road trip, loved the feel of the place. Very clean! Great friendly staff who are all so knowledgeable of the area. The pool area is a great space to chill and is exactly what we needed after a long day of driving.

Pick up and drop off to the bus station really handy, staff are really friendly and helpful with things to do whilst there. Loads of places to chill around the hostel, as well as a game & tv room gave it a really relaxed vibe. The free wifi was either unbearably slow or not working at all, but they do...

Soon as I arrived I knew it was going to be a good experience! The receptionist was really friendly and gave me loads of ideas of what to do whilst I was in Port Macquarie. The hostel itself is really quirky and has lots to do if the weathers bad such as a dvd room, books, boardgames. The kitchen was...

My partner and I stayed in Ozzie pozzie for 4 nights and had a brilliant time! The facilities are great, we made full use of the ping pong and pool table and used the BBQ on several occasions. The staff were also great, very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. When we arrived we asked about the sunrise surfing...

Imagine you're having a dream about staying in a magical wonderland where you had a pool table, an air hockey table, a table tennis table, chess, a DVD room, a pool, and a sick kitchen... And then you woke up and discovered it was real and you were staying there?!?! Well this you shall have if you stay at Ozzie...

Such a nice hostel - really laid back, with great facilities and a nice atmosphere. The kitchen was big and well equipped. The staff were so nice and helped us book lots of tours, saving us money and time. A great stay !

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
