after check out it wasn t possible to use the facilities due to no entry after give back the key. my bus came 11.45pm, my bag needed to be picked up at 7pm, and i couldn t take a shower or use the kitchen to cook something. normally it is possible everywhere. in the kitchen was nearly nothing. pans, cups, cuttlery needed to be picked up at reception good thing was the free wifi use on the first floor and the view from the balkony.
The staff were so helpful and friendly, it was great. The room was nice, with TV and private bathroom. Location excellent, only short walk from bus stop. The only thing we weren't too sure on was the layout, with the rooms opening up into a food court open to the public, but it didn't actually become a problem.
Stayed in the Ocean View room before and after Whitsundays trip and was excellent! So so clean with really comfy beds and a balcony. Free wifi was appreciated (although a bit poor) and location was perfect. Wouldn't recommend for solo travellers as not a big atmosphere, but a really nice escape from party hostels.
Nice clean hostel, but very little character. Reasonably priced and excellent location.
Had a very comfy and peaceful night's sleep here. Quiet and clean hostel, has free wifi, aircon in rooms. Have to leave a deposit to use kitchen utensils. Very close to greyhound stop.
clean but very few toilets and also showers are smaller than average hostels. found cleanliness as moderate.
They sell different tours too. Pay attention for special prices for backpackers! They didn´t let me know at the time of booking, but i found it out, when i asked somewhere else, there´s a 2 us$ backpacker card available for getting up to 30% discount on tours! Free wi-fi included on the fare!
Great hostel, probably the best I've stayed in during my month in Australia. The staff were incredibly helpful, very clean room and kitchen. The AC was fab and even a flat screened TV in the room!
