Nice place, a little far from the center of town, but still within walking distance so it's not a big deal. Good value for money. Nice people. I like the dogs. More

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

Really helpful owner (Peter) friendly atmosphere and nice relaxed little hostel. Clean rooms, toilets etc even had incense and hand towels in the toilet. Like the idea of a quiz every night gets people talking and you can win a bottle of champagne. Would definatley go back, only More

I've been travelling in Oz for 7months and this has got to be one of the best hostels I've stated in. Very clean and big rooms, even 2 ensuites showers in our room, which I thought was a good idea. Friendly and helpful staff, bar area was cool, good place to meet fellow travellers and a More

Lockers needed for passport safety... I thought rather ridiculous to charge for pots and pans...but probably because slack people take and/or do not clean. The reception/booking staff quite wonderful and helpful. I do wish something had been posted as to no pick-ups (because of broken 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

Overall I loved staying here. The room we were in was great, it overlooked the pool and behind the buildings looks like a rainforest! Our room did not have a curtain on the main window by the door which was kind of inconvenient because you couldnt change in the room cause it lacked privacy More

Cool hostel, rooms are huge and staff are fun! You have to pay $5 deposit for cutlery but is expected to stop theft. 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

On arrival I was asked to pay about au$1 more than what was on my confirmation email. I wasn't sure so I did not say anything. Also, i didn't bother to complain, as it is not really worth the trouble.It is hard to believe that it was a genuine mistake, however I am giving the benefit of 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

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 More

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. More
