Location was good and rooms seemed new, but check-in process took forever, Wi-Fi wasn't working, computers were all out of order, and the rooms didn't have any shelves, lockers or hooks to place your things, which is difficult in an 8-share. Fine for one night considering the price, but I definitely wouldn't stay any longer than necessary.


Lovely hostel. I stayed in a female deluxe dorm and it was the best dorm I've stayed in. Very clean with cleaners in every day and sturdy bunk beds which made a change! Air con too which was definitely needed! Loved the fact that the sinks, showers and toilet were all separate so saved an hassle with others! The kitchen was okay but had loads of ants and flies. The vibe in the bar wasn't too good either but it did the job. The movie night was an enjoyable bonus. Great location and staff!!


The rooms are clean, there is much needed AC in them


Nice hostel in centre of town. Decent rooms and bathrooms. Good little pool and bar area is pretty good. All staff were helpful, particularly their travel booking guy.


One member of staff was particularly helpful.


Nicest room in Oz so far!


Should provide free wifi sheets had holes in them

Only spent one night here. Thank God. The kitchen was miles away from everything else and the rooms were pretty basic. The AC was nice though! The staff couldnt care less about the guests. The mango trees were nice, you can find fresh fruits on the ground.


Staff is not helpful, have to rent all your dishes, kitchen is far away from everything. No common area except the bar. Housekeeping will come in your room at 10 am and make tons of noisy and will yell to each other. It's was very distributive. 15 Menton Avenue, Varsity Lakes


The hostel was a good time. Location was very good and the atmosphere was perfect for a starting point to a good night out in Airlie. Staff were friendly.


Great location, helpful staff and overall not a bad experience for a short stay to do the Whitsunday Islands. The free ice pop on arrival makes all the difference when you've had a long walk in the heat.


Basic facilities but the place was quite clean. Great location on the Main Street and only a short walk to the beach


The deposit for plate, knife and these things are so high. In the kitchen are so many ants and i never seen them cleaning the rooms. My bed was dirty. I location is good, it's very close to everything. They are very unorganized.


Staff weren't helpful at all. The rooms were old and the shower tap get falling off the wall and there were lots of ants in the room. People kept checking in during the early hours of the morning. The rooms were spacious but very bare. Location was perfect


Location is a 15min walk from beach but near lots of shops, cafes, supermarket etc. Rooms ok but no lockers. Good travel, trip booking desk


Friendly staff. Girl at the travel desk really helpful
