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

    This place is amazing! The setting is stunning and the staff are so friendly! I ended up extending my stay as I enjoyed it, and Port Douglas so much! Would highly recommend

    It’s a great place to stop by. People living in the hostel were super welcoming. The staff wasn’t much aware about people leaving or staying, not sure if they had the proper lockers key. Everything it’s understandable but I would suggest a little bit more organisation. Loved the pool and big recreation area. It’s a good place to party any day of the week.

    Very Good

    Had a wonderful stay. Loved the facilities, pool, food available, drinks, gorgeously tropical gardens. It's a little out of town (20 min walk) but with the help of a bike, that's a plus as far as I'm concerned. The dreamlike beach is within 10 min walk. Very helpful staff. Accidently found out that my key opened another room😅.

    Lots of long term stayers which made me feel really uncomfortable as they were also quite unfriendly in my room with there stuff in my locker and overall disrespect of space and privacy etc. The staff are very nice and helpful but I won’t be staying there again.

    Way more of a party hostel than expected. I stayed in a private room but the party on Monday night kept me up until past 1am - the private room was right next door to where it was. Given that all the tours in the area start super early, this was not a great experience. Cleanliness was below average. There was a smell - maybe to be expected from a sweaty climate but wow the stench especially from the other rooms permeated the place. When I pulled the sheets, I could smell something untoward too

    The hostel is just filled with various types of drifters and vagrants and very few actual travellers. They should consider separating out the long termers from travellers to improve the experience for the latter. In my room I had these drifters with poor hygiene who did nothing but get drunk every night. It was putrid.

    Never got back my $20 key deposit, I paid cash and it was stapled on my reservation with my phone number however nobody contacted me to return the $20 and just pocketed themselves. This reminds me why travelling in Australia is terrible, customer service non existent, expensive and always out for scamming your money
