A little off the beaten path but a very clean, comfortable place to get some rest. Each little house has a kitchen and bathroom. You pay pay for AC but the beds and cleanliness are worth it. It's also easy to catch the bus or walk into town. I'd recommend it! More

The cabins are nice and comfy, close to the beach, public transport and supermarket. The walk from the beach to Airlie beach marina is amazing at sundown More

Nice place to stay if you don't want to be in the party zone. It's a bit further out but the closest hostel to the bus station. There is just a one hour free wifi which i din't like! Nice wooden beds and working aircon. More

Short walking distance to the greyhound. We could store our luggage for the Whitsunday Tour and could use all the facilities afterwards! the kitchen equipment was not that good and one of the stoves didn't work well. More

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 More

AC in the room was broken couldn't get a good nights sleep. Not what you expect from YHA. One of the lockers in the dorm was broken also but we could share the other one. More

Great location right on the main street. The staff here were fantastic and helped me plan my activities in Airlie Beach. The rooms were large but they only had 1 power point between 8 people! The first room was assigned was absolutely filthy with old food and cigarette butts everywhere. More

All the facilities are dirty, the beds are very uncomfortable, the showers didn't work in the room. We were told to shower near the kitchen everyday because they weren't going to fix the showers. The staff is so rude, the worst I've encountered traveling. I would never recommend staying More

Great location and very clean rooms. Only big issue was the kitchen which people seemed to leave in a tip. Felt sorry for the staff coming in to do the dishes... More

Double room is good with a fridge, air con, fan and a kettle. The hostel is made of lots of different buildings. Wifi is only available in one place and is very slow. Good value for the price. Staff are very slow at the desk. More

Very nice atmosphere, but the kitchen is really really small! It's in the town center just next to a Woolwoths. Luggage storage is $5 for as long as you need it. More
