After doing some research I decided to book Nomads as it had all the facilities I felt I needed. However, I called twice to book because I was doing a two night Whitsundays tour in the middle of my stay so I thought it would be easier to talk to someone than make two separate bookings. Both times I called...

Only one reception works and only one kitchen. Expect very big lines on both. Also some of the other facilities are not working including the wifi. It's ok if you only come for one night. The location is pretty far from the bus stop but closer to the marina

I stayed for 3 nights at Base in an 8 person room - a lot of young people, clean facility (although ants, but can't help that), great location. I had just come off the clipper and all my friends I made stayed there so it was a fun community. The community lounge and kitchen are average, but the shed bar...

I stayed at the private room with bathroom. It was a good value for money! The room has a good space with frigobar, air con and beds were ok. The hostel is very well located, close to restaurants, bar and shops. The staff were very kind. I would stay there again!

We orginally intended to stay for 2 nights in a private room (for 2 persons). However, when the entered the room we had an acute asthma attack due to the ceiling that was covered in mold. Overall, the room smelled like a dead cat. The only ones that did seem rather pleased with our room were a family of ants....

Hi Suzannebleker, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us review. I am very sorry to hear about your experience with us. We are still trying to pick up all the pieces from Cyclone Debbie that has caused our property a lot of damage, including water issues both in the rooms and with our plumbing, but that's...

Brilliant, fun place for backpackers. I stayed here when I was a backpacker in the 90's and recently visited family who were staying there too. It's a great place for the young 'uns. Fun, lively and comfortable.

Hi Graciela S, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. It's great to hear you loved our little (big) place as much as we do.

With Airlie being rather small the location of this hostel is perfectly allocated within the middle of the main street. The hostel looks pretty small when you wal in, but the cabins are actually very good and rather new with a pretty bathroom. With the lagune and all the stores, restaurants and harbour on walking distance, it is the perfect...
