Find it hard to believe that the 8 bed dorm rooms with a full windowed wall have no curtains at all, there is constant light streaming in the windows which can make it hard to sleep. This hostel is also situated right behind their bar which is playing live music all night, the 8 bed dorms are closest to the bar and can be very hard to sleep because of the music and the lights. If you want a good nights sleep it may be better to stay elsewhere on the street for some peace and quiet

Awesome hostel, great location and facilities. The staff are really friendly and helpful too!

It is a hostel for spending a night or two prior or following your Whitsunday sailing trip. The small houses in the backyard are perfectly separated from the noisy bar of the hostel. It is a big place, so it's more just for sleep, but for that reason it's perfect.

The location is very good, right in the middle of airlie beach. it"s quite loud outside because all the clubs are around, but you don"t really hear it in the room. the rooms are very big, so everyone has enough space. staff seemed very bussy, so they were sometimes unfriendly. free wifi in the wifi area and 3 computers right next to the kitchen. one of the best hostels i stayed in, because of the big rooms!!

Reception staff rude in particular older lady glasses. Travellers are humans just on holiday deserve some respect. Private rooms excellent own fridge, bench outside, bathrooms kept clean. We heard of a few break ins from the dorm cabins at back of resort during or stay. Seems to have happened before - not acceptable and security needs upping

The hostel is amazing, the location perfect, you are in the middle of Airlie beach but look like being in the rain forest. The only thing is that is actually a arty hostel and no one was looking after people having party untill 6am and make a lot of noise during the whole 3 nights i was there.

Managed to check in a bit early. Room was spacious and bed was comfy. No curtains in any of the rooms. Wifi is free and works quite well until a lot of people use it. Location is very good, next to Woolworth's, close to all the shops and lagoon. 2 small kitchens, which were never too busy and had lots of utensils! Could maybe do with some more fridges. Good hostel, would recommend!!

Reasonably priced hostel with fantastic atmosphere and awesome environment. Downsides: absolutely no security whatsoever in the rooms (no lockers) which is just weird as it doesn't cost much to install. Dorms are absolutely filthy; our toilet leaked, there was pee all over the floor at all times, and not once were bathrooms mopped the entire week-long stay. "Cleaners" woke us up daily to ask who had checked out which was extremely irritating. Great location though with lots of wildlife.

2pm check in time not adhered told that the rooms were not 'clean' and we would have to wait, try coming back at 4:30! Great. Eventually get into the room. Not clean. Are you serious? 'Non party hostel' absolute rubbish. 'Security' doesn't exist. People paid to keep their bags in luggage storage instead of their rooms. Rooms smelt like damp and the shower was appalling. Oh an why not try putting full size doors on toilets so I don't have to hear and smell other people using it. Disgusting.

Cool resort feel (the rooms are in a garden/forest away from the front entrance) despite being right on the main strip of AB. The bar and club are busy and noisy and music can be heard in the dorms well into the night (that's why you always travel with earplugs). The no drinking in rooms rule is a joke, everyone did it. Let's face it you're only in AB to go to the Whitsundays or party & will be staying at magnums for 1-2 night . If you're coming for a clean, quiet stay, Magnums isn't the place.

Magnums is very conveniently located, right off the main strip and a very short walk to the Port of Airlie. The front desk staff weren't the most pleasant to deal with, but that didn't affect much of our stay. The dorm room is a good size, has a patio, but no lockers. The shower "attacks you" with its super high pressure, it also changes temperature when another tap in the building is used, finally it was home to a colony of ants. Magnums has a great public bar and decent club right beside.

Thank you for not letting us enter even if it was only 9:10pm.

Had a great stay at Magnums. There was a staff member ready at the bus stop to show me the way to the hostel. Check in was a breeze. Room was clean and comfortable. Met some great people. Definatly reccomend it and would stay again.
