Ozzie Pozzie Backpackers YHA

We are a backpacker Hostel in the vibrant town of Port Macquarie, which has gorgeous beaches where you can surf, chill at lovely cafes and visit our cute city center. It is also home to the one and only koala hospital, which you can visit every day for free. Australia’s Billabong zoo is only 10km away. The hostel is just a short distance from the town center, beaches, walking tracks, shops and restaurants etc. We are known for having a chilled and laid back working environment where everyone is treated as part of the family. Life here gives you the chance to lead or take part in many activities such as sunrise surfing, snorkeling,body boarding, coastal walks, heading to the pub for live music, nightly socials around the hostel and much more. You can just chill out next to the pool or relax in a hammock. There is something for everyone. We encourage all of our team to get involved and interact with backpackers and other guests in building an atmosphere and having fun.

Hi all, My name is Mathilde i'm a 29yo Frenchie who have the chance to manage this beautiful hostel in Port Macquarie. I have a super cool team by my side with Sarah from France and Rajesh and Govind our Nepali team . The four of us are a solid team but we always welcome with a lot of enthusiasm any news volunteers. We love going surfing together after work, watch movies in the TV room and spending time with the guests on the weekend.

I really enjoyed the two weeks I stayed at the OzziePozzie hostel. The hostel facilities itself were very cosy, clean and well-equipped. Mathilde and the rest of the team were always making much of an effort to make us feel welcome there. With the nice team, the two hours work per day, which only include easy and doable tasks, went by so quickly. They also helped us to make the most of our stay in Port Macquarie by recommending us certain places or arranging surf lessons. In the end, I wish we could have stayed there for a longer time and I would totally go and volunteer there again!!

Staying in port Macquarie for 2 weeks truly excelled my expectations. The town is a small holiday, retirement area which is really quiet but soooo beautiful. Even though it was winter the weather was so nice and sunny and there are lots of things to do around the hostel: surfing, hiking, swimming, koala hospital, waterfalls and just chilling at the beach.
The hostel itself is managed with a lot of love and the team is great. Work was so easy and chill. Only 2 hours a day working alongside professional cleaning staff. 10/10 would recommend!!!!

It was home for 3 weeks: only because it had Catan and table tennis... Everything about Ozzie Pozzie was welcoming! Cool people to work with, awesome vibe, close to the beach, pizza night and to top the week off, the staff meal on Friday! The work was really easy and for 2.5 hrs a day, gave you enough time to explore amd check out Port Macquarie.

To everyone i met and who made my stay well worth the time, thanks alot! Miss you guys and if you're ever thinking of heading to SA, give us a shout!

Ozzie Pozzie is a beautiful hostel and the housekeeper is easy!
The team and my coworkers were lovely, I really had a good time with them. You can go surfing, swim in the pool whenever you want to, meet people, share time with other travelers. Port Macquarie is a nice place with lots of beaches, shops, restaurants.. and very chill! I recommend it.
