Nothing great. Nothing terrible. Just an average hostel. Bunk beds were pretty squeaky with any movement. I always find YHA'S a little over priced for what they offer.

The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and well kept. The kitchen was big and clean as well. Unfortunately the wifi didn't work and the staff was very rude.

An average hostel; fairly expensive for a double room. We later stayed in Magnums which is x10 better and around the same price. Pros: -good location-Main Street -our double room shared a bathroom with just 1 other room Cons: -the power for the microwaves in the kitchen kept on tripping so they wouldn't stay on -all the pans are bent and the hobs are electric -the hostel looks and feels old and unloved -our double room was very small, had just air con with no controller plus a balcony

Decent place to spend a couple of nights either side of a boat tour round the Whitsundays. More like a motel than a hostel, so if you're looking for a party night there are better places in Airlie Beach, but it was fine for us. The member of staff who checked us in was incredibly friendly and managed to get us a very discounted boat trip at short notice, but some of the other staff aren't quite so approachable. You can store luggage for free if you book a tour through them - bring a padlock.

Lady on reception charged our card for the room without letting us know which lead to us being charged extra by our bank in England. We arrived at 7:30pm and the office didn't close till 8pm so no reason for this. No offer to rectify this was made either. Place seemed pretty poorly managed as most of the YHA chains do. Good sized kitchen however and the rooms were a good size offering good security for your possessions. Overall not a great experience so wouldn't return.

Not much going on here. The hostel is clean and has the basics, but as most YHAs are concerned the dryers didn't work. Probably has the worst atmosphere of any of the hostels I stayed in Airlie and is not far away from the action by any means but the other hostels are the action. Stay at one of the other hostels.

Compared to hostels in Asia this place is terrible. Wifi is terrible, beds squeaky, washing is expensive, no towels included, value for money is poor. Basically the whole place place looks and feels stuck in the past, like it's a throwback to 30 years ago. Wouldn't recommend staying here but unfortunately there's very little choice in hostels in this area.

Fantastic staff who were easy to talk to, lot of fun and looked after all of us during Cyclone Debbie and looked after others who suffered from the storm after the initial weather system had passed. Very appreciative of all they did for us, thanks for everything. Matthew

The free wifi doesn't work most of the time and the reception has terrible hours. Some of the staff are really nice, and others are not. The rooms are clean but the shower is not separate from the rest of the bathroom. If you are doing an overnight Whitsundays sailing trip, it is $5 a night to store your luggage, even if you booked nights here before and after, which is more than other places.
