Location: perfect in one way (central), the worst in another - too much noise from the bar downstairs, couldn't sleep till midnight. Room was located right above the bar.

Rooms are way too close to the bar! Didn't sleep at all. Changed hostels after one night because of this.

Only stayed one night. Another place with a bad bar and a no BYO rule, they will take any alcohol left in the rooms so hide it. Lame policy of putting down a deposit for any cutlery needed, a PITA. Very clean and the beds and rooms were great though. Good enough for a one night stop-over while getting on a boat, but I wouldn't stay longer.

There were a ton of cockroaches in the dorm room, they were even in my bed. When I told the staff, they were not bothered at all. It was terrible.

Average hostel over all. Nothing particularly bad about it, but nothing particularly made it stand out either. Visted a couple of the other hostels and they were a bit nicer. The bar was good fun though and its nice they give guests a discounted meal.

Overall a good stay! They could clean the luggage room more often and maybe have a look at the night gate, because we had some troubles with opening it.

I know Airlie Beach is a party town ;-) but the two nights I spent there were awful ! A lot of noise and guys drunk running naked in the corridor, I've never seen the night manager during my entire stay. The room was disguting and there were cockroaches in the bathrooms ! I would definitely not recommend this backpacker.

Good hostel, good atmosphere. En suite for 8 people to share wasn't enough though. Only have access to toilets in the bar area if your en suite isn't available.

Traveling as 22 and 18 year old males. Staff were not very friendly as is the case in most hostels. Found the room was unclean with cockroaches and had to make and unmake our own beds. Was not cheap enough to justify all of this. It was also on top of a bar which made it very loud, before the boat trip I had hoped to catch up on some sleep.

Place wasn't clean and had cockroaches. Staff were polite but not as helpful as in other places. It's right above a bar so was loud into the night. Beds weren't made which when arriving late is not ideal.

This hostel is alright. The rooms are old and the beds not very comfortable. It can get very loud because there is a bar attached to the hostel. But you get a voucher for a 6,50$ meal drink. That was absolutely worth it. It's also very close to the lagoon.

It was OK. The location was great and the room was clean. The bathroom was dirty and the tap was dripping.

The room we stayed in was not clean, in particular the floor, when you walked on it with bare feet or socks the soles of your feet would be black just walking from the bed to the bathroom. Also the mattress was a thin piece of foam or something that you could feel the bed slats through, it did not make for a comfortable nights sleep.

Really nice hostel right in the heart of Airlie Beach. Really good atmosphere, lot of space in the dorms and good discounts at the bar next door. Really enjoyed my stay there, the staff was really nice and helpful!

A very functional hostel. Special thanks go to the excellent house meal, which is a huge meal and a drink (beer, wine or soft drink) of choice for $6,50. For the wifi, you had to pay $5 for just one day, but it worked well. The rooms were average, and the club downstairs was busy (which is good if you're into going to clubs) and you could hear this into the rooms. But all in all, a good place to stop over before and after a whitsunday islands tour.
