    The common area can get a bit hot. In saying that though, it was a lovely outdoor/indoor common area.The staff were amazing and heaps friendly. The atmosphere was pretty great and I got to speak to a lot of people during my short stay. The place was clean considering we were sharing with a bunch of people and rooms were nicely air conditioned. Slept so comfortably. Only thing I can fault is the fact that free WiFi is advertised but others said it didn't exist and you had to pay for it.

    For the average backpacker - good for a few nights as a place to rest. The Good: Location, Atmosphere, Value - Port Douglas is great little town and the hostel is close to everything. Beach is beautiful. Park is great for sunsets. Marina is close by. The Bad: Security, Cleanliness, Facilities - Key cards are easily wiped and don't work so residents leave doors unlocked and open. Kitchen is cleaned once a day, when cleaners get around to it. Bathroom is always very hot, humid and stuffy.

    ✅ The manager is really nice and friendly. Location is perfect. Toilets are clean. Lockers in the room. ❌ The rooms are messy. The room door is unlocked all the time, because of the long term guest. The kitchen is dirty most of the time.

    The hostel was disgusting. The kitchen area was full of dirty dishes that attracted many bugs. The hostel was full of people living there so the room was dirty from their possessions being thrown everywhere. The room also smelled like sweaty socks. Surprisingly the bathroom was actually very clean.
