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.
