Basic but clean. The kitchen facilities were good, lots of utensils to use. They charge for towels which are usually provided free at other hostels. We found the staff to be quite rude and unhelpful. Three staff at reception were middle aged women who would not look up and acknowledge us on many occasions, either ignoring us completely or carrying on chatting amongst themselves about the latest TV or other until they couldn't ignore us any longer. No atmosphere but an ok base for whitsundays.

Was a horrible stay random staff members would walk in and out of our room without saying anything or knocking first , sheets and beds weren't clean, bath room was very poorly cleaned, the pool facility looked like it had not been cleaned for months and was milky white very disappointing stay.

Very good stay, just a shame to ay for the wifi... at least let a free data amount to everybody....


This hostel is a little bit off the main strip and is not as nice as some of the other hostels on the strip or other YHA's I have stayed at but was adequate for our one night stay. The rooms were equipped with lockers which increased the security of our belongings. Staff were warm and friendly.
