Score from 147 reviews Very good
nice place, friendly staff, clean room and bathroom, comfortable environment
few minutes walk to centre, not too bad, make it quiet in night
Helpful staff Free internet for an hour Nice outdoor area Pick up and drop off to greyhound bus
Kitchen and bathroom could be cleaner Have to pay for extra internet
Nightly quizzes which is a great way to meet new people! Five minute walk to the centre of Airlie Beach. Clean kitchen & bathrooms and friendly staff!
Might be time for the television set to get a digital box or be replaced.
I loved this place from the minute I walked in! The staff were very welcoming and informative and didn't leave any questions left unanswered! The location was perfect; quiet and lovely views but very close to the main town, beaches and lagoon. There were a mix of people and families staying which made conversations interesting and meeting new people fun and easy!! I was gutted to leave!! So easy to feel at home and the staff worked hard (all day) cleaning and making sure you felt welcome.
Having to leave!
Very clean bathrooms excellent location, quiet but close to everything small, friendly atmosphere lots of helpful ideas for trips quiet at night
My glass slide door didn't close completely so was noisier at times than necessary, than if this was fixed.
Extremely helpful staff, nice surroundings, clean shared facilities, quiet place to stay.
The bunk beds were a little bit too narrow but this is rather expected.
Nice and relaxed hostel. A little walk to the main centre of airlie beach but close to the greyhound bus station. They can organize everything and book sailing trips with good stand by rates. Make sure to have breakfast with the Kakadus
Very friendly. Very clean and great value
It was 1/2 a kilometre from the main street of airlie…………..thats really not that bad :)
I like the general set up of the place, it was cute and everyone was of a similar young age so things were lively. The idea of a trivia session every evening was quite fun and the staff there was quite friendly.
Since I was on holiday and had an early morning tour booked the next day, I needed to get some sleep the night before which was nearly impossible with everyone screaming their heads off till 5 in the morning.
Good location about 15 minutes walking from main street in Airlie Beach, lovely feel to the place very homely and holiday, helpful staff
Nothing! All was good
Very nice staff, friendly atmosphere, nice common areas, clean, good location, nice view of the sea, pretty and fun place to stay.
Really slow wifi considering that you had to pay for it, no night lamps (the room is either completely dark or filled with light) or nightstand switches for comfort, the vending machine is broken and on the 10 days we were here they didn't fix it.
Bloodstains on sheets
Nice location, 5min walk from the center of Airlie Beach. Great help, answered all my questions on wished trips on Whitsunday and Fraser Island. Good advices. Great value for money !
Staff was really friendly and we had a great time. Lot of funny birds around this place, really nice !
Awesome stuff, cheap breakfast and sausages for dinner, cheap drinks, but NOT a party hostel as the ones downtown
Staff was great!!! Borrowed me an adaptor without any charges. "Cozy" hostel
Quite short walk to the main streets, not a problem at all, unless is raining all day :( Matress kinda old and thin
SUPER close to the Greyhound Bus Stop, Very helpful staff, Giving with luggage storage, Great Suggestions, Very central to town
The bathrooms were not super clean most likely from the quality of guest staying there, and overall the rooms were not fantastic. However, it will suffice for a night or two surely....
This has a great location, with beautiful views. Staff were great, they make a real effort to get you in your room ASAP, no strict 2pm check in. Made to feel really comfortable. Breakfast is a bargain!
For what we paid it was perfect, no complaints.
The staff were fantastic! Always willing to help and go that extra mile. The hostel was always clean and even when one of the fridges stopped working, all of the food was moved into another.
the petty german girls
having to wake early to catch a flight
Although they overbooked and didn't have any beds available even with a reservation, they called around and found a room at another hostel, taxi'ed us over there, paid the difference, bought drinks.
They overbooked and didn't end up having a room for us even though we checked in with them a few days prior.
Very friendly staff and very clean and comfortable bed
Public spaces are nice and cosy, staff is enthusiast and willing to make you comfortable and to help :)
A bit expensive for what you get; a very small room with shared bathroom that wasn't very clean.
Hammocks hanging in the breeze Lots of activities within the hostel Air condition in room
bed wasn't very comfortable 10 minute walk from nearest store, it's not right in the center, for good and bad
