    Amazing hostel. Great location and friendly staff. The hostel was clean but unfortunately no soap or antibacterial wash in the washrooms in the room and only 1 outlet in the room in the washroom. There is 6 people in a room so having 1 outlet is not the best. They have events going on most nights so it’s somewhat social too. Kitchen is great too!

    Very Good

    Meh. Wasn’t really good nor bad. The building was huge and fairly industrial feeling, and not in the hip way. The rooms were clean, but the bathrooms were not so nice. Lots of concrete. Bar was ok, but not a lot of people hanging out there. Location was close to the main parts of town so getting around was pretty easy.

    The staff were lovely, atmosphere very strange, 30 dollars a night quite expensive but so we're all in Port Douglas, not very clean, toilet seats had fallen off toilets, and just felt a little run down, had a good night's sleep, but probably won't stay again.

    Great location. Could be a good hostel if they just employed cleaners. The bathrooms are disgusting and looked like they’ve never been cleaned - kitchen and communal areas are also not great.

    Friendly staff and noce common room area. room was spartanic at best. Kitchens looked gross bordering on beeing unhygenic. (also somebody stole my food. hardly the hostels fault but still 1st time that happened) bathroom was disgusting. opted not to shower there at all

    Bathrooms were really a mess for the first two days and had an aura and smell of an over-used public toilet. 10 person dormitory is uninviting, not well ventilated and so smells horrible, and storage barely fits a large backpack. Pool table was free but dodgy. In retrospect this was one of the few good things here.
