We stayed for just one night after a sailing trip in a 6 bed room with ensuite. After paying the very same price to stay in another hostel in Airlie at the beginning of our stay which was a 10 bed shared bathroom with no ventilation in the room whatsoever, we thought this place was great, we especially appreciated the...

This is clean and tidy accommodation. It's just off the beachfront on the main street. There is only room for three cars though, but there is free parking round the corner if you have a car and don't find a space. It's an OK place to stay if you're at Airlie Beach.

Great hostel. Nice and chilled. Near the nightlife but not in the thick of it. Staff great that helped me book my YHA in Mission Beach, Greyhound and a sailing trip. Cheap too! I really enjoyed my stay here. I'll be back.

We stayed here for one night prior to heading out to Hook island to camp. We were not expected much.. just a place to sleep and organise ourselves - but i did not even want to sleep in the room due to the amount of mould on the ceiling (we stayed in a private double room). I know hostels aren't...

We stayed for 2 nights here and the hostel is very well located, it is right on the main street but just far enough from the noisy bars. The rooms have balconies and the rooms and bathrooms are very clean. There is free parking in the hostel too. The kitchen was well equipped and kept clean too. The staff were...

May not look like much on first glance, a little bit run down and the place could do with a bit of TLC, but for budget accommodation this place has everything you need and is clean. Good sized kitchen, dorm rooms were well air-conditioned, each had its own bathroom and lockers. I just wish they would provide soap!! Backpackers need...

This is hostel is alright... but nothing more. It was not particularly clean, there was also a distinct lack of sockets in my room. Whilst in a good location, staff were not particularly helpful, and actually quite surly. I stayed in Backpackers by the Bay the following night, and although the accommodation was actually worse, I had a better experience..
