    We stayed in a twin private and it was great. Location was perfect, kitchen was spacious, and the staff were very helpful. The bar is also fun to go to for live music. Bathrooms weren’t the cleanest but not awful. It has a cabin-like feel and was perfect for a any type of trip. Wifi was only available in a certain area, but other than that everything was great :)

    Very Good

    26 Jul 2019
    Some of the staff were really nice, some rather kept talking with each other than help you. Storage of baggage is with a safe system but annoying that it only opens on certain times. Location is good and close to the highlights and only a 15 min walk to where most Whitsunday tours depart. Everything could be cleaner. It was cleaned often, but only the visible parts. I liked the eco mindset, but nothing was bug proof, which you don't want in the room (there were no mosquito screens).

    Good, nice people at reception, kitchen and so on... Free filtered Water would be nice. Shower is unpredictable and changes from boiling hot to freezing cold in seconds...

    Apart from the fact that customer service is non existent ( very non professional and rude receptionists), the place is very dirty and old. I found a very good band playing there at night which made my day. I would not go for that hostel again. Be advised and stay away
