Property Description

Dougies is run by a bunch of us who had lots of fun backpacking around places of the world before, so we decided to start a hostel ourselves. We have the pretty relaxed atmosphere, without all of the formal procedures that some hostels have. Our philosophy is 'kick back and relax at Dougies'.

We have all of the facilities that a fun loving backpacker could ever need, including a bar, refreshing swimming pool, free bbq facilities, shop (coke, ice-creams, chockies etc), a huge self-cook kitchen, laundry, internet, satellite t.v (really big one), hire bikes, fishing rods, tour desk and of course accommodation (doubles, twins, share rooms, camping, van sites and our own stylish canvas tents).

But once you see our tropical gardens and cruisy front lawn you might just want to lay back and relax under a palm tree, kick back in a hammock, by the pool or you may even like to unwind on the grass and soak up some of the Far North's warm tropical sunlight. View House Rules

    Had an awesome stay! Was full of travelers staying long term but they were very welcoming and so was the staff! Definitely recommend. Great location too(: bit of a walk to town but there’s a shuttle that comes to and from the hostel.

    Dougie's is awesome with the best staff of any hostel in the world. They were really helpful and patient with me assisting with my booking and airport transfer from cairns. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and cleaned thoroughly each day with lots of facilities available and no wait. I wish the rooms had bigger lockers but there is only a small cupboard with a lock in the room. That being said, the place felt very safe and I didn't feel unsafe.

    Dougies backpackers is a very happening resort, so much so that we found ourselves to be old and out of sync with what was happening around us (though we interacted very little with the backpackers). The room is big, clean and cosy. toilets weren't cleanest but that could be because we went on Easter's eve. This is at a fair distance from the harbour and there's absolutely no eatery in 1 km radius. We had our car so that wasn't a problem but otherwise you will need to use the 3$ shuttles.

    Very Good

    Had a good stay and the staff are a wonderful bunch of people. It is about a 20 min walk to the marina which is doable but obviously not in the centre of the township. Main concerns: not very clean. Fine for me but my girlfriend was constantly aware of how unclean everything was. Also, we did not know that this was the party hostel. Night's can get pretty loud if you're a light, early sleeper. Still enjoyed my stay!

    Dougie's staff were very friendly & helpful at check-in, and these accommodations are probably the best you're going to get for that price range in Port Douglas, as it is quite expensive. Location wise, it is roughly 15 minutes to the marina, main street or beach. We did have teeny, tiny ants crawling up the walls in our private room and they ended up inside my suitcase which was an issue for me, however, that might not necessarily be a fault of Dougie's so much as of the tropical and insects.

    Good location. About a 15 minute walk to the main shops, bars and restaurants. We spent most of our time out of the hostel but staff were friendly enough when we needed any assistance. Our private double bed creaked everytime we moved on it. The pillows were not overly comfortable. The fan was noisy but we also had an air conditioner which worked well. A great kitchen with pots, pans and knives which was handy.

    It was ok I guess but I’ve stayed in better hostels for less. It’s 20 minute walk into town and the kitchen was disgusting, not the cleaners fault, they did they’re best, but some people were absolutely feral in the kitchen. Also it was a very young crowd when I was there like 18-20yr olds, mostly American, not really travellers as much as fresh out of school here for a party , wasn’t my kind of vibe.
