Everyone was super friendly! Loved the workers and the volunteers. Good leadership from Matilda and Sarah. Really good hours between 10am-12pm, so you have many good hours after lunch! Nice and clean hostel😃

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!!

Thank you so much Chiara for your lovely review. It was a great pleasure to help you organize different activities , I would do it all over again for you girls , you have been so helpful and nice with us ! I am sorry I didn't get to say goodbye but I wish you the best time ever for the end of your travel in Australia !



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!!!!
