    Unbeatable location. Staff are generally friendly. Didn't realise we need to 'request' blankets - no blanket for my first night; made do with sheets and towels.

    Very clean hostel. The atmosphere was on the quiet side, understandably given the covid situation. Big common places to chill. The staff is friendly and you get great meal deals at the pub downstairs. Overall a nice place to rest while in cute Port Douglas.

    Really enjoyed my stay here! Port Douglas was much more homey than cairns was and the overall feeling at the hostel was great! Rooms weren’t very clean but we that’s to be expected at a youth hostel and WiFi bandwidth was an issue at times during peak hours since it was shared with the bar downstairs. Overall very satisfied tho and recommend the stay.

    Stayed in a private room after a big race. Room was nice, had to get staff to flip the circuit breaker to get the power to work. Bar had good vibe despite COVID

    I liked this place for the most part - good location, cheap, rooms weren’t bad. However there were a few things that ruined it for me. First, they didn’t have lockers. Second, I stayed two extra nights and they charged more than the regular price of a booked stay because I extended it. Third, they advertised that there was a free shuttle bus to cairns on tue/thu/sun - however it “wasn’t running” the Sunday I left. The reception didn’t give a reason and couldn’t tell me where to book one

    Very noisy at night. A lot of shouting and loud talking going in hallway/ smoke area. Could be cleaner/ tidier outside the entrance, Phoned a few times couldn't get an answer. During my stay I had to go looking staff as they weren’t on the front desk. Bedroom clean Bathroom clean

    Payed for a room with my wife at 5pm. Went upstairs to our room. Tool was stinking with underware on the floor. Went back downstairs to get a refund and leave but they could not give a refund as it was after 12am. Never got nothing back apart from our room key deposit. Not able to give a refund 80 seconds after transaction? Pathetic. Very disappointed
