Positive Reviews


Great Bar Shed

The Shed Bar at the hostel was a hit with backpackers who stayed here with many saying that it was a great place to relax, grab a drink and meet and hang out with fellow travellers.


Good for Camping

Backpackers travelling in camper vans or with camping equipment commented that this hostel had a great space allocated to people wanting to camp and self-cater as well as having  access to bathrooms and hostel activities.


Great Location

Backpackers who left reviews about the hostel commented that it was in a super handy location only five minutes walk to the Airlie Beach Lagoon and the restaurants and bars in the main street.  Departures to the Whitsunday Islands are also only a ten minute drive from the hostel.

Negative Reviews


Filthy Kitchens

The communal kitchen did not get good reviews from backpackers who stayed here, with many saying that there was limited amenity, a lack of pots and pans and no soap.  It was obvious that staff did not regualrly clean the area and backpackers   did not clean up after themselves.


Dodgy Rooms

Backpackers complained that the dorm rooms were not very well maintained at the hostel, with many people reporting holes in the walls, rickety bunks, a lack of pest control and no sound-proofing.


Check-in Dramas

A number of travellers complained in their reviews that the staff on reception were really slow at checking people in, which was a source of frustration for many who had a very delayed check-in and were made to wait due to a lack of staff at busy times.
