    Lovely little guesthouse, really friendly man checked us in, gave us great advice on what to do on the island. Highlight was a hidden away short trek up to a rock nearby with incredible views for sunset! Very clean and really nice, modern kitchen. Would 100% stay again, thanks!!

    Loved this place. Everything was great, except for maybe the atmosphere. There wasn't much going on and it was really calm and quiet which I thought was really nice for a change. The staff was super friendly and everything was nice and clean. The room was small but there was a fridge and a sink in there which was great. Good location close to bus stop, beach and reataurants. Felt kind of like a mix between hotel and hostel.

    This is not a B&B. It’s more like a hotel with communal facilities. Know that going in and you’ll have a fine time. Perfect for couples or friends who prefer a chill night. If you wanna party, go to Base. I enjoyed my time here at Cstay. Reception was very nice and the wifi was good.

    Lovely quiet place in Picnic Bay. Very clean place and comfortable bed. Nice hot showers. The only reason I have marked it down in location is that Picnic Bay is very quiet compared to somewhere like Horseshoe Bay and has no real shopping. However, the R&R restaurant round the corner is very good and the bus service is excellent during the day. If you can, I would recommend a couple of days in Horseshoe and a couple in Picnic.

    Anton was a fantastic host who helped us to make the most of our 1 full day and night on the island. The hotel/hostel has by far the best and cleanest kitchen facilities of any that we have stayed in. Private room was comfortable and had our own sink which was nice. Good wifi in the too. Everything on magnetic island is fairly expensive so with that in mind this stay is good value for money. Thank you Anton.

    A lovely, clean and modern place with spotless bathrooms, bedroom and kitchen. We made use of the little pool which was nice and could park the car directly in front of the building. Pub, beach and restaurants less than a 5 minute walk away. Anton was very friendly and helpful. Overall, great value for money and a pleasant stay.

    Overall a good stay, the only thing that put me off was a giant roach scuttling around my room. Great showers with hot water. Kitchen was nice with everything you need and a nice area to sit and watch tv.
