No lockers in room, the bathroom needed a good clean and lots of insects in room due to windows being left open. Location was great and staff were friendly. As a deposit is needed for crockery, it meant sometimes waiting for a while at reception and having to go back and for. Wifi wasn't great (even paying the $4 for 24 hours didn't work great)

The kitchen and bedrooms are pretty disgusting. But the atmosphere at base is amazing. Met some incredible people while there and all the staff are lovely. My advice would be to stay at nomads instead. It's all attached so has the same atmosphere but the facilities at nomads are far better.

The dorm rooms were spacious with ensuite bathrooms and bathtubs. Good meal and drinks deals at the Down Under bar next door and the meals there were surprisingly good given the cost ($12 including a drink). Unfortunately the state of the kitchen & common room lets the hostel down. The kitchen is filthy (layers of grease on the shelves, floor always dirty) and there was a dead baby gecko & fly on the common room floor. Sofa is also badly ripped. Overall, OK for a couple of nights.

Hostel is ok for pre and post accommodation for the whitsundays, however the first room I stayed in was overflowing with ants and the bathroom was disgusting, dead ants and insects everywhere. Second room was nicer but was on the second floor.

An ok hostel, atmosphere wasn't amazing and the 4 bed dorms ensuite was gross. A massive bath with a shower and no screen or curtain so the floor got soaked. Staff weren't very friendly. The girls only dorm 'sanctuary' pack is a nice touch though- towel, and free shower gel etc.

This, together with Nomads (They share the grounds) is just a night stay place before or after your whitsundays trip. Its fine to sleep, rooms are okay, aircon is nice. Would not stay longer in Airlie beach for there is not much to do, especially during the day.

Couldn't check-in till 2pm which is annoying when most Whitsundays trips arrive back and 11am. The room was a standard hostel room and it was good to have a bathroom in the room although it wasn't particularly clean and the shower head was so low you had to squat to wash your hair - as a person of average height. Down under bar has cheap drinks which is good and its a good hostel if you're wanting to go out at night.

You have to pay for everything as additional here!!! The wifi, parking, to store your luggage. You have to leave a deposit for cutlery and dishes, and wait in a huge queue to get them from reception, and to return them for your money back. Dorms are nice and private bathroom. Dorms are clean and functional. Communal kitchen was disgusting, dirty with loads of flies. Once you had cooked there were only two bench tables to sit at, which was not enough for everyone there. No alcohol allowed.
