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.

    Jules and Lou at the front desk were so friendly and helpful! Magnums is a great location close to the marina and in the center of shopping at Airlie Beach. Very unique set up with cabins around a wildlife jungle. Very convenient to have the large grocery store just behind the hostel. I highly recommend getting a private room if you are traveling with a friend because the dorm rooms don't have use of blankets included and the price per person ends up the same.

    Probably the best on Airlie beach for a good night out and party vibe. The grounds are so beautiful, looks like you are in the middle of a forest. Private rooms are much nicer than the dorms (dorm wasn't so clean in the bathroom). Right next to the Woolworths and on the main road for all the bars and clubs. Close proximity to get home drunk late at night without getting too lost! :P There isn't really a social area, isn't a quick stop hostel for 1 or 2 nights but serves it's purpose well.

    We really enjoyed our stay here- the 8 bed dorm was clean & bug free with good AC. Its a big hostel with a bar attached so good for socialising. Only complaints are the shower was tiny & the kitchens were messy with nowhere near enough space for the amount of people using them.

    I wish there were lockers in the rooms, but besides that it’s a good stay for the money. Nice location and really pretty tucked back into the greenery.

    Had the smoke alarm in our room go off during the first night and then every one in the area we were in went off at 6am the following morning. The 2nd night we had the same issue. The smoke alarm in our room kept going off randomly. We were booked in for a 3 night stay but left after 2 nights. The staff were reluctant to refund us for the last night but eventually agreed.

    Bed bugs! On the first night of our stay it was clear that our room was infested with bed bugs. The beds had clearly not been cleaned or checked in a long time with dead and live bed bugs all over the bed. When we complained to staff they were very hostile, and dismissed our complaints until we showed them (took 15 seconds to find bugs). After that they admitted it had been a problem and offered us a refund for one night. We were told the manager would be in touch but so far...nothing. Avoid!
