My stay here was very pleasant. The location is perfect if you're not much of a party person as it is a five minute walk to the main Street. The décor is interesting and the rooms basic but the facilities are good and the beds were a lot more comfortable than I was expecting. The staff are lovely and you can get breakfast for $3 and BBQ sausages in the evening for $1.5, perfect for budget travellers! Reception have the best deals on day trips too so book through them. Would recommend!

Very clean, tranquil hostel located out of town. If you don't mind a 5 - 10 minute walk to the main strip, I highly recommend

The hostel is a short walk from the Main Street and is a lot quieter than the other party hostels. Each room has a small locker box to keep a few valuables, but no huge lockers. Staff were friendly. If you pay $6 you can leave your luggage whilst you go to the Whitsundays and then have a shower when you get back which is nice!

Good spot a short 8-10 mins to town centre. Nightly quiz made for social yet laid back atmosphere. Clean bathrooms. Rooms were a little run down. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall great value. Would stay again.

Really nice hostel. A little bit out of town compared to others, but a pretty location and not a long walk to get to the main strip. Lockable storage boxes in each room are a nice touch.
