This would have been the perfect place to stay for a week and really enjoy Airlie Beach. We only stayed here one night after getting in from a boat trip. Cute and clean cabins in a very relaxed setting. Nice if you want to get away from the noise of downtown and feel like you're staying More

I liked this hostel. It's a 10 minute walk from the center of town, but it means that the partying is kept to a minimum and you can sleep in peace. It was clean and comfortable with good storage space. The common room was a bit sparse--no couches or TV, but the kitchen is well stocked and More

Upon our arrival the staff at reception seemed very annoyed by their job. We chalked it to being the end of a long day. To our surprise when we checked out a few mornings later by the same staff, they were just as rude and dry with us. In 3 nights we were switched rooms 3 times to More

The hostel is well located in Airlie Beach, close to town centre. It's about a 10-15 minutes walk to Abel Point Marina (where all the Whitsundays boats depart). Staff is nice and helpful (they also stored my luggage during my Whitsundays trip). 10 bed dorms are quite big so the number of More

The room itself was really nice with two showers and all, but the overall facilities were poor; the most annoying was that every single kitchen utensil had to be lent with a deposit paid from the reception. More

Nomads was about the only hostel not arranging bus stop pickup. That was the only negative thing, but next time in Airlie Beach I'm staying in a hostel that has hostel pickup. Sorry! More

I stayed in Base for one night after my boat trip. I couldn't check in earlier and had to wait until 2pm because of the cleaning process. I checked in and the Bathroom was still dirty, bin was full and I had a dirty blanket. The rooms and the pool area are really nice. The check in needs More

Basic yha hostel, super clean and well looked after. Right in town and right by the beach! Really liked the bathroom/shower facilities as they are only shared between you and the room beside you! More

Very nice hostel with a good location in Airlie beach, near the town but in a quiet location. Short walk to the supermarket and the bus stop. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were a good size with lockers and ensuite bathroom. Very impressed with this hostel. More

There is one brunette girl with blue eyes from the staff that I really don't know why she works there. She really hates the job and doesn't like to help at all. The place has a very loud bar and you can't sleep until midnight (when the music stops). Besides this, they have good meal deals More
