    Base Airlie Beach was great! Walking distance from the main strip. Food at the onsite pub was amazing and good value.

    It's a cool hostel in a great location, has it's own bar attached with discount if you're staying in the hostel. Hostel staff amazingly helpful. I stayed in a female dorm which was big but pretty old and not great. Met another girl at the hostel who was staying in a different female dorm amd her's was real nice & modern, so maybe luck of the draw. Great hostel!

    Great location, right in the heart of everything. Would have been nice if we were given an adult sized blanket as it got quite cold at night. Had extremely disrespectful people staying in the room next door to us who partied outside our room until 4am. You get what you pay for.

    The hostel was okay. I found two of the staff on reception pretty rude for no reason. Not the best custom service!

    We booked 2 nights in Airlie beach but we just stayed for one night because we found the minibar fill with garbage, the private toilet was disgusting and the shower was broke down. The x-base staff moved us to a mix dorm where we stayed alone, however we found a c****m in the toilet and p***c hair on the shower floor, to be honest, It was a disgusting experience. Fortunately, the staff gave all our money back.

    People were good, but the kitchen was very bare with few utensils. I had to go ask for a knife, because there was only one and it was in use. Also most of the stoves are terrible. The rooms were clean enough, but found muck around the sink. The blankets they provide were also hilariously useless. Literally these tiny 1m/1m things that are thin as can be.

    I’ve been in the hostel a few times, but my last time was super bad, the room and the bathroom were filthy, like days without cleaning. And the next day when I was doing my check out I speak with one of the girl in the front office and she was like ok, thanks, at least you can try to care.

    I had chosen a mixed bed dorm, but when I got there, there wasn't a bed for me, so I had to be 'upgraded' to a 4 bed room. The 3 other people in that room moved out as they were concerned about a drunk person trying to get in the bathroom window. So then I had the whole room, but felt very isolated. They didn't clean the room/bathroom after the others left, so it was pretty gross with hair everywhere. Needed a serious clean and vacuum. The codes they gave me for the doors never worked.

    The room smelt of chlorine and was not a nice atmosphere. Very expensive for what it was.
