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

    Honestly the staff made my time at Dougies, they are so friendly and helpful and made me feel at home. It was a bit quiet but it was a great laid back vibe and a cool hostel to use as a base to go out and dive the reef or go to Cape tribulation. Thank you so much Dougies I will be back!

    Amazing place to stay in Port Douglas. A beautiful 15 minute walk from town centre, or an inexpensive shuttle bus. The staff are very friendly and will accommodate all your needs. Would recommend to everyone and anyone. Hope to be back one day! Cheers, Fraser.

    Very Good

    Staff at the reception are absolutely friendly and helpful. Very good service. The room I stayed in was a bit dated and dark. The cleaning could be improved; I had to wipe out the draws as they were dirty. The hostel seemed to be dominated by smaller groups of the same origin. There is constant music and it can be noisy depending on where you room is located.

    The hostel is well located. The employees are really nice and very helpful. They have a party every night which creates a good vibe. Nonetheless, the facilities are filthy. The kitchen was disgusting and the shared showers were full of mold. The room was dirty and the bed sheets were stained. It was horrible! The food at the bar was frozen and microwaved; however, the pinot noir was really good! Because cleanliness is so important to me, I won’t stay there again.
