For not very much more, our private rooms are Singles, Doubles (one bed) or Twins (2 single beds) which are made-up. All our rooms have at least one window, offering some rooms Garden or Pool views at no extra charge. All rooms are equipped with fans. Air-conditioned dorms cost no more – we cater to either preference. All accommodation is housed in a separate complex, so you can be assured of a peaceful night's sleep. On-site, live-in Managers ensure that your ESSENTIAL needs are met.

Your room rate includes arrival airport transfers between 8am & 8pm only. However, this service does not operate on Christmas Day. As a guide, Taxi will cost A$25 while Uber Rides range between $14 & $28, depending on availability of drivers.

We don’t have a bar. This allows you to bring in your own alcoholic beverages which can be stored in the designated fridge in our indoor Recreation room where you enjoy Movie Viewing on Fetch, or sporting events, depending on availability of telecast. Or simply “chillax” on the comfy sofas & throw cushions as you take advantage of the all-day complimentary coffee & tea and keep up-to-date with friends & family through our hi-speed fiber Internet. If you prefer outdoors, Hammock Central is our outdoor chill-out area and, as the name suggests, has hammocks to lie in, to while your day away.

    This hostel is incredible, stayed for a week and the owner Annie made it one of the best places I have stayed in Australia. The location is fantastic about 10 minutes to the lagoon swimming pool and main shopping area. Plenty of spaces to hang out and meet other guests and it's BYO with a dedicated beer fridge. All you can eat sausage sizzler on Mondays and pizza night on Fridays. I cannot overstate how welcoming this place is and I highly recommend it to any backpacker or traveller.

    I had a great stay at Asylum. I found the staff to be friendly and genuine and met a lot of interesting and fun travellers. The hostel is perfectly located for easy access to amenities and nearby nightlife hotspots. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place.

    General facilities such as common rooms, kitchen and laundry, etc were great, however: -the hostel does not provide blankets, even in winter. I had to buy a blanket from a local shop and even then was cold at night. -no hooks in the room to hang a towel- the only option if you'd like your towel to dry is to hang it on the clothesline outside. -no hooks in the bathroom to hang your towel/clothes while showering to prevent them getting wet Overall the hostel is great, staff+location were amazing
