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

    Had an amazing stay! Rooms are far enough away from bar so it’s quiet and easy to sleep. Always something going on, live music is great and cheap drinks! Will definitely return!

    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!

    Really good hostel. Nice stay in little jungle houses as dorms. Staff super helpful and friendly. One thing I would suggest is a free shuttle just for the greyhound bus arrival / departure and that would the hostel faultless! Great stay though

    The hostel had a amazing location in the middle of the town and yet was surrounded by jungle. Really close to the supermarket and a small walk to the lagoon. Great atmosphere and security. Very helpful staff.

    Really cool because it feels like you’re in the jungle, but that obviously brings bugs with it. We personally didn’t mind at all but the bathroom area is full of huge moths and bugs, could do with some sort of prevention on this. Other than that good place to stay and good value!

    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!

    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.
