    Loved the pool and sun deck. Rooms were clean with air con, decent mattresses and big pockets. Good facilities too - two kitchens, laundry, gym etc. Chill staff and relaxed vibe, would’ve been comfortable staying longer. Cheers!

    Really lovely hostel with a great setup. The bar and pool area is really fun to hangout and meet new people. The staff are so friendly and incredibly helpful. It’s about a twenty minute walk to the heart of Port Douglas which means it’s in a nice, quiet location. The rooms are a bit small and dark but are neat and clean. The communal facilities such as kitchen, showers, and toilets are all quite clean. Overall, one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at.

    The private room was spacious but had nowhere for clothes. A set of drawers would be useful. A hanging rail was provided when asked for. We are old so thought the painted concrete floor a bit like our garage at home! Tiles would be nice. The bed was comfy but scooted across the floor at a touch - if it were attached to the headboard you could sit in bed and read. Pool area lovely, laundry washed clothes really quickly. Problem I had, dealt with very efficiently by manager.

    If you are going to Port Douglas this is the place to be. It’s a block away from the Main Street, two blocks away from the beach! On top, they have a pool for when you come back. When I was there it was dead but I know it was low season. I had an 8 person room to myself! I heard that during high season is crazy busy. I would stay there again though.

    Good location and good parking facilities. Nice little kitchen too! The room was very basic and not many plug sockets. Also not many toilets/ showers considering the size of the hostel. We stayed during Covid-19 so the bar wasn’t open so not much atmosphere when we were there but I can imagine it could be good.

    This hostel has the potential to be great but was massively let down by the uncleanliness of the communal areas. Both kitchens had stacks of dirty pots and pans and neither looked like they had been cleaned in a while. Sheets in room were stained as well. Also no lockers which was annoying in a 10 bed dorm. However good location, good pool and had gym and movie room. If cleanliness and security was improved would be 10/10.

    Good place For staying just a few nights. Nice pool. But everything a bit dirty. Specially the kitchen. The best thing in really hot days was the aircon in the rooms and the cold water at the reception.

    This could be one of the most disorganized and poorly run hostels I’ve ever stayed at. The pros: - Awesome location (about 5 min walk to Main Street) - Shower pressure was elite The cons: This place is very run down and appears to be an old pub/bar turned into a hostel. The whole place is a labyrinth and took a while just to find the showers. The showers themselves have good pressure but other than that you may as well be in prison. Read the rest of the review on google reviews. Good day.

    Without a doubt, the worst hostel I have ever had the displeasure to stay at. The kitchen area was filthy, the whole place smelled awful, there was no bedding provided, the beds and pillows were dirty and stained, one of the showers was leaking and another's door didn't close so the only one that did work had the worst water pressure. I'm sorry to say there were no redeeming features at all. Would rather have slept on the side of the road, it would probably be cleaner and smell better.
