Think of Airlie Beach Magnums as your own tropical oasis on the beach. Stay on-site with a stroll in our lush grounds or take a wander to the famous Airlie Beach Lagoon, Abel Point Marina, or Port of Airlie. Fancy a day trip, or an overnight sailing adventure, to see the stunning Whitsundays? There's a travel desk at our reception area; just chat to our multilingual staff about our range of tours and activities. When you need to refuel, our two kitchens have everything you need to cook up a suitably filling dinner.


No need for a cab! We're walking distance to all the unmissable restaurants, pubs and clubs of Airlie Beach. Take a 15-minute stroll to Port Airlie for the best views, food and drinks, or walk down the road for two minutes to lounge in Fairy Tree Park or take a plunge in Airlie Beach Lagoon. If you're arriving into Whitsunday Coast Airport, jump on a shuttle bus or coach to reach us with minimal fuss.

Rooms and Dorms

If you fancy sharing, we have mixed and female-only dorms. There are also private rooms and, if you're feeling extravagant, deluxe cabins. All are surrounded by tropical gardens that make for great Instagram backgrounds, if we do say so ourselves. After a long day in the sun, you'll sleep soundly in your room with air con, plus free bed linen and Wi-Fi. Don't sweat it if you forget your towel, just ask at reception for one of ours for a small fee.

Extras and activities

Hit up our recreation room for a little downtime before a big night out. There's a 51-inch TV and a host of games to play with your travel buddies. On the nicest days, though, we'd recommend getting outdoors – rally your new friends for a game of volleyball on our sun-drenched court. Alternatively, go in for the full Aussie experience and get your grill on in our new barbecue area.

    Nice stay at Magnums over three days. Perfect position, right in the middle of town on the Main Street and only a short distance to the lagoon. Staff were very friendly and offer heaps to do whist in Airley beach. Rooms were clean with an en suite in each. I was in a 4 share room which was clean and comfy. No issues at all. Thanks

    Great place to stay, right in the heart of Airlie and walking distance to everything. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and spacious. This place is big enough to always have atmosphere but also be able to find a quiet place to chill out. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Wouldn’t look at anywhere else to stay in Airlie, this is the place to be!

    Really enjoyed our stay at magnums! We stayed in a private double room which was such good value for money. Check in was busy in the morning and the nice receptionist managed to get us checked in early. Bar area was so busy with travellers and locals which made for a great atmosphere with live music on every night. Great location just across the road from the lagoon, also the gateway to the whitsundays aswell a short 10/15 minute walk to the bus stop for the greyhound. Would highly reccommend!

    Magnums is in a great location in Airlie Beach and the price for a private double room was an absolute steal. The hostel itself as has been previously commented feels almost like it's situated in the forest and for the most part it creates a very serene environment, although unfortunately there were a few drunks coming back from the bar on the nights I was staying who didn't understand the concept of leaving the party there. Atmosphere somewhat diminished but hey, that's COVID baby!

    The stay was in general very good, the hostel has a very nice and peaceful atmosphere with lots of trees and birds for sure it is the most important point and that I would return. Only two things the hostel needs to improve, the shower did not always have hot water, it was cold all the time. And the kitchen was late to open every day we were at the hostel, we had a scheduled tour and the kitchen took around 15 munutos to open, which was very inconvenient.

    Really good location for shops/lagoon/boat jetty's. Nice relaxed hostel with loads of plants around. Very clean but some bathrooms could use an upgrade

    The weather during our stay was awful but I was glad we had our own room. We were pretty much stuck there the entire duration and would have gone mad if we had roommates. The room and A/C were nice but the bathrooms could be cleaner. Staff were a little rude as well. The location was prime and there was a river that ran through the property.
