    Very relaxed hostel with small swimming pool. Kitchens were ok, but a bit chaotic and equipment missing. Constant written reminders for users to wash up! Otherwise a brilliant place to stay and a great base for our snorkelling trip with Wavelength.

    Overall we had a very good stay here. We were in a private room and it was roomy and had an en-suite. The hostel was expensive compared to hostels generally, but coming from Asian prices, this was to be expected. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and helped us whenever we needed.

    Great location and very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Kitchen wasn’t that inviting to cook in due to other guests leaving a bit of mess and not a lot of cutlery being available. Great idea to have an area set aside for some exercise.

    really nice hostel! their website needs to be updated tho as we saw one price but when we got there it was more, they told me must be an old website i saw but it still let us book deposit through it and shouldn’t really class themselves as a working hostel as the only jobs i saw on the jobboard said to go on indeed, which i could have done at a normal cheaper hostel

    Nice hostel in a great location with all the facilities you need. If being picky one thing to improve would be signage/directions to the showers as that took a good 30mins to locate! Would definitely go back!

    Very Good

    All the facilities are there and are basic hostel standard. Kitchen was fine but food storage wasn't great just because of the fruit flies- despite numerous signs that people should keep their food in bags people still didn't. Also the previous persons food hadn't been cleared out of my shelf which wasn't great. Met some nice people in my dorm and staff were so lovely but wouldn't stay again just because it seems to be a hostel for long stay people and it was quite cliquey (imo) Great location!

    Very Good

    Hostel was in a good location and staff were friendly. There were also a lot of dinner deals around town if you show your guest card, which were great and cheap. Hostel itself was not super clean or secure, though they did have key card entry into rooms which was good. Bit of a party atmosphere, but it quieted down at a reasonable hour which was good for people looking to get some sleep.

    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.
