This was my first and definitely my last YHA stay in Australia. The hostel was pretty dirty - the room I paid for was in excess of $100 a night and turned out to be a little box with a bed in it. The walls were covered in gross stains and I did not want to walk on the floor... More

Yha was quite nice and located in the city centre. The staff was friendly and helpful. The double room was clean but had a bit of the Charme of sleeping in the basement. A bit too expensive, maybe due to the location and the town.

It's one of the better hostels in a town that's renowned for parties. I met lots of people who didn't have a wink of sleep staying at other hostels in Airlie Beach. They're basic, clean rooms on the town's main strip, definitely not a party hostel. Tiny pool, decent laundry facilities and guest shower and toilet for before/after check-in. The... More

I liked this hostel - our room was spacious and there was a big kitchen, which was easy to cook in. The staff were lovely and very helpful when we had to change our booking. It is not a very pretty hostel but a good choice for comfort and convenience.

I stayed here before and after my Whitsundays boat trip, which the hostel were really helpful in booking. The facilities were pretty good, even though I'm not a fan of dorms with ensuites. The wifi is awful though. The most annoying thing was a group of people talking very loudly past 1 in the morning outside our room. This leads... More

Kitchen area was full of ants. The sofas in the lounge were stinky. Not the usual standard of YHA hostels. Reception was helpful as we arrived early.... But there were no showers for guests to use and the toilets were really smelly.

Nice place located just few meters from the beach and near some good restaurant. As all the YHA Hostels Chain, the structure and cleanliness is good but not up to YHA standard. If you look for entertainment and new people to meet go elsewhere.

The room was extremely small, shared bathroom facilities with one other room, unfortunately the guests staying in the other room were pigs so the bathroom was always dirty with hair on the floor and vanity. The private balcony was the only thing I liked about the place. Very noisy street with a night club close by. The accommodation spoilt my... More

Dear Leesa, Thank you very much for reviewing you recent stay with us. I was disappointed to read that you did not have a positive experience during your time at our hostel. While many people appreciate only having one other room to share the communal bathroom with, we do understand that unfortunately not everyone has the same standards of cleanliness.... More

Clean hostel. Good location Although nothing.soxial about the hostel, no meet and greets ,no discount food and drink places or game facilities,unlike the other hostels on the street thay were the same price to stay in . Also being woken up two mornings in a row at 7 am due to construction works at your door is rediculous
