“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2011

Ozzie Pozzie is by far the best hostel we have stayed in throughout travelling, and so far we have stayed in about 13 different places. The staff are warm and welcoming and the rooms are nice. The pool area is kept clean and tidy also. The kitchen was large enough to accommodate everyone and there was free breakfast and free tea and coffee all day. There was also free internet, although sometimes a little bit of a wait but can't complain. The best part of the hostel was the atmosphere, which is probably the most important characteristic for people travelling. The way the hostel was arranged (with a central area) allowed everyone to mix with the staff and other guests. The people were lovely and it was a fantastic place to stay. If you are in Port Macquarie definately stay here.

Ozzie Pozzie Hostel

I have nothing but great things to say about this place. Richard is a consummate host who knows the area very well and is full of helpful suggestions. The hostel itself is clean, well maintained, has a pool free Internet, a good view of the horbour is centrally located. Everything seems effortless and yet well organized. The staff are friendly, charming and 1000% approachable. There are way too many happy hidden surprises to mention here. IF you are going to Port Macquarie, THIS is where you want to stay!

The only thing that would make it better is if they had WifI

Great location, great service, friendly and helpful staff. Nice place to have a couple of chilled out drinks and great facilities for cooking and hanging out. Lovely pool hidden in the middle of the accommodation. Overall, really nice place to stay.

Really liked this hostel, we were picked up from our bus and checked into our room with no delay. There was a big and very clean kitchen. The TV room was a bit cold - no doors but it should be ok during the Summer. The games room was very good. They provide 4 computers with free internet. Rooms are a bit on the small side but well kept. Drawback - for the whole hostel there are only 2 female toilets (1 of which was broken for our entire stay) and 2 female showers which isn't a lot. We were very disappointed with the staff as we asked them to recommend a hostel for us in the next town we were visiting and they booked us into a Motel which was nothing like what they had described or suited to backpackers at all.

Room Tip: Rooms are a bit cramped and dark but they are cleaned daily.

Only stayed for a night whilst travelling from Sydney to Byron Bay.
3 of us in the room - clean, enough space, quiet.
Bathroom was clean and big.
Didn't use the other facilities but all seemed well set up.
Pool looked very inviting.

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
