    Great location, nice rooms and a good vibe. The hostel shares a kitchen and common area with base hostel. The kitchen was extremely dirty and really really needs cleaned more than once a day

    Great location and hostel, rooms, facilities and everything clean except the pool. Only think is went to go for a swim and the pool was green and you can’t see the bottom so didn’t bother.

    Dorm rooms were huts which was pretty nice, with benches outside to enjoy the sun. Was right in town so great location, had a bar attached to it although didn’t hear it from our room and has a good atmosphere in the bar. Lots of outdoor sitting areas and 2 pools. Only issue is code was on an app and didnt work when typed in manually, so need to make sure phone doesn’t run out of charge, and was outside so many ants got into beds on lower bunks.

    No common area for socialising. Wifi is rubbish and didn’t work at all. Facilities were dated and not cleaned thoroughly. Wouldn’t stay again but served a purpose for getting to the Whitsundays.

    There really needs to be somewhere solo travellers can go to meet people, especially over meal times. The benches were deserted.

    Pretty decent stay for the price! Massive hostel on a huge property so lots to explore in terms of different people and facilities. I felt this property lacked a bit of basic cleanliness in the bathrooms as well as a locker to put any valuables in. I still think this probably the best option in Airlie for the price other than Magnum’s.

    Nice Location. However really noisy at night, my ensuite bathroom didn't have a door, kitchen was really messy and dirty around 7-8 pm doesn't really make you want to cook anything, no space in the fridge. Wifi was really bad !!

    -Extremely slow wifi, that was only available at the reception and not in rooms. -There was not really a common area where you can make friends. -I only received a thin blanket so it was cold at night. -Understaffed. There's always a queue in front of the reception. -There was no soap for washing hands in bathrooms. Overall the worst hostel I stayed in so far, wouldn't go again.

    saw a small cockroach in the toilet. basic amenities. beds are comfy but no blankets provided. staff are rather unfriendly but generally assist you, straight to the point. wifi is poor so don't bother using it. Location is terrific. generally quiet enough for a good night's sleep

    It wasn’t clean at all, our beds were used before our arrival. Accessibility to get to the room is a mess, people yelling out of the room the entire night. Someone knocked the door five times at 4 am. Not recommended at all.
