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.

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.

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!
