    Staff are so friendly and welcoming. I saw about 5 different people during my stay and they were all lovely. There is a beach behind the hostel within 1 min walk. Home beach /end part of cylinder beach) Entry is clear and flat, no stairs or bushes. Room and bathroom were so old but visibly clean (didn’t use kitchen but looked clean). Wifi works properly on the Ground and level 1 in the rooms. You can leave ur bags in the reception on the floor. it’s right behind the bus stop (30 sec walk).

    The property was amazing - great location and facilities for staying on Straddie. We had actually left an Airbnb accommodation which was not safe and needed a last minute place to stay at midnight. The owner was incredibly accommodating to us and gave us all the info to get in super late, and even checked to make sure we made it okay this morning before even charging us for the room. She was absolutely lovely and honestly this place was super clean with everything you could ask for

    Excellent location to learn to Scuba dive. One of the cleanest tidiest backpacker style hostels I have visited, with committed staff, and pleasant atmosphere. The island of Minjerribah/Stradbroke is always pleasant to visit with a genuine island vibe and culture.

    For a youth hostel this place is great, large air conditioned rooms with comfy beds (we had a double and a single bunk) with a desk, small fridge and some storage space. It was very quiet too with rooms seeming to be quite soundproof. Only issue was doors closing, that is pretty much all we heard at night. The location is right on beach so perfect for sunset romance, walking distance to roadhouse with burgers etc. and other restaurants - we recommend Stans Chicken n Beer which was an underrated surprise.
