#9 of 39 Speciality lodging in Port Macquarie
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.

We enjoyed our short stay at the Ozzie Pozzie Backpackers. The mattress wasn’t great in our private room but other then that everything was great and the staff were super friendly and very helpful with great recommendations ☺️ Although we didn’t use the facilities there was a good sized pool, nice common area, tv room, games room and even a cosy quiet reading room. This hostel has everything you could need for your adventure in Port Macquarie 👍🏻☺️

Small cozy hostel, outside area and a clean kitchen. The rooms are really warm but the beds are really good and comfortable. You feel save and everybody respect each other. There is a nice pool area. The bus stop (greyhound) is only 15 minutes walk, but up the hill!

I visited this lovely venue a couple of nights ago. I called ahead to let them know that I was arriving before they opened reception, and the lovely girl I talked to sorted me out! She was very helpful with recommendations of what I could do from reception openend until the room was ready. Unfortunately I didn't catch her name, but many thanks to her! The hostel it self was great, nice common areas and good quite rooms! So thanks for the lovely stay.
