Base is more on the side of spring break partiers than mellow islanders. All of this is manageable because several of the guests are also interested in quiet and some of the rooms are far from the loud bar. There are NO lockers and people tend not to lock the rooms. Everything was safe as everyone was in the same boat, but it was worrisome. It is beautiful to be on the beach, but it's not a great swimming beach and you're a bus ride from horseshoe bay if you care about the main town.

Gorgeous hostel with amazing views. The little bungalows make you feel like you're at a resort in the wilderness. Had so much fun at the island life party when we were there. However a lot of the staff was incredibly rude, specially one girl, - even though they were also backpackers. Hopefully the staff turnover is high. Get some friendly people up in there to have a good time with you! Definitely stay though!

This hostel has a very good atmosphere and facilitated for every type of traveller. Lots going on in the evening but have the option to chill as well. Staff were really friendly and helpful. The showers and toilets aren't that great and were a little dirty and the mattresses definitely weren't the comfiest. Beautiful views though as the hostel is situated on the beach! However, the location of the hostel is right at the bottom of the island so you're quite removed from the main sights!

Location goals! Ocean front accommodation, wake up to the sound of the waves - amazing bedrooms clean and comfortable enough. Good food for a good price The kitchen is small with not enough cutlery, or cooking pans/ pots. Bar games are dated and cringe but a lot of drink offers. Would recommend purely on location, it's beautiful!

Fantastic resort hostel located on the beach. Super chill vibes and plenty of party opportunities in the hostel bar with different events every night. Very clean rooms. Kitchen was a bit shit, but that seems to be the norm in Australian hostels!

Some very friendly backpackers some not so much. Staff is super fun. The best part is the VIEW and waking up 10 steps from the beach. This place looks like a resort but is kind of far from everything else on the island.

Base on magnetic island was a great social and party venue! Activities and games were happening every night. Great location on the island with beach/waterfront access! Would definitely stay again
