Dougies backpackers is a very happening resort, so much so that we found ourselves to be old and out of sync with what was happening around us (though we interacted very little with the backpackers). The room is big, clean and cosy. toilets weren't cleanest but that could be because we went on Easter's eve. This is at a fair distance from the harbour and there's absolutely no eatery in 1 km radius. We had our car so that wasn't a problem but otherwise you will need to use the 3$ shuttles.

Really friendly place especially the lady on reception. Nice open kitchen / sofa area with fans! Nice walk into the town from here too. Definitely recommend :)

Dougie's is awesome with the best staff of any hostel in the world. They were really helpful and patient with me assisting with my booking and airport transfer from cairns. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and cleaned thoroughly each day with lots of facilities available and no wait. I wish the rooms had bigger lockers but there is only a small cupboard with a lock in the room. That being said, the place felt very safe and I didn't feel unsafe.
