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

This hostel is GREAT. Socialising is easy, staff is friendly and there is something to do every night. It is one street out of the main street, which means you have a quiet place to sleep. There's a swimming pool, great hammocks, clean kitchen, breakfast for cheap rates. Also good More

Different layout to your average hostel. Dorms dotted around. But good value for money none the less. More

Base has a lodge type layout which means everything is spread out. No lockers in rooms and lack of plugs in the bedroom. Ours had 4 in the bathroom and 3 in the bedroom. Good location and staff were very helpful. Also has a good coin op laundry. More

Nowhere to sit and play games in the evening except adjacent to bar, whcih was way too loud. No chairs in rooms or on balconies. TV room tiny with two chairs - why bother for such a huge premise. More

Nice resort, really spacious, nice staff. Airlie is cool, I didn't have a chance to get to the Reef but probably should have done from Airlie!! I'd stay here again and may do on way back down the coast! More

Great location, right on the ocean front. Good mattresses and beds, yet too many people in one room that prevent you from sleeping well. I felt itchy and when I shined some light on my legs in the bed there were ants in the bed, with little wings on them, biting me. There were so many that More

Great location right at the waterfront. Room was full of long term stayers so their stuff was everywhere. Two toilets near my room were broken but there were additional facilities off the kitchen. The garbage in my room never got changed during the stay and was already overflowing when More

I stayed here because it was the only hostel at Airlie Beach that didn't have a load of negative reviews. I shared a private room with my boyfriend for one night and it was fine. Friendly staff at check in. Everything was clean. Not the most inspiring rooms, but the reason we were there 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

Kitchen was dirty with very few knives, receptionists seem uninterested and rude, except for one lady who was always really nice. Hostel was really loud and other guests were partying untill 5am and were never told to stop which is annoying when your awake for sailing at 6am. More

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 More
