Property Description

Dougies is run by a bunch of us who had lots of fun backpacking around places of the world before, so we decided to start a hostel ourselves. We have the pretty relaxed atmosphere, without all of the formal procedures that some hostels have. Our philosophy is 'kick back and relax at Dougies'.

We have all of the facilities that a fun loving backpacker could ever need, including a bar, refreshing swimming pool, free bbq facilities, shop (coke, ice-creams, chockies etc), a huge self-cook kitchen, laundry, internet, satellite t.v (really big one), hire bikes, fishing rods, tour desk and of course accommodation (doubles, twins, share rooms, camping, van sites and our own stylish canvas tents).

But once you see our tropical gardens and cruisy front lawn you might just want to lay back and relax under a palm tree, kick back in a hammock, by the pool or you may even like to unwind on the grass and soak up some of the Far North's warm tropical sunlight.

I only stayed one night (left early for personal reasons) but probably would have left early regardless. Lovely staff and in theory a nice set-up but the vibe just felt off; lots of big Spanish groups and older long-stayers, it felt very cliquey. The 8-bed dorm was truly grim, one window with a ratty curtain and smelled super musty. It’s a long walk back in the dark from town too. Left my stuff in the car overnight as trusted that more than the cupboards that couldn’t be locked.

Our one night in Dougies was so horrendous we had to cancel the second night. No wifi working; and even if it was you have to pay for it, staff told us it has been off for days. Ants/termites infested in our room and night staff were unable to assist and directed us to speak to the manager the next morning - staff also informed us apparently “i have these in my room too”. Safe key did not work in my safe but I was able to open someone else’s with it. Loud noises all night and our roommate “forgot his key” s

While the staff was very nice, the property itself was rather disappointing. The rooms were very dark and not very clean, and the mattress was very saggy.
