"Very cool plave to have fun"

26$ for two people and a minivan: cheap for Airlie. Kitchen was very clean and nice. Showers were ok: some are reserved for campers. The place is very cool, there are a bar and a night-club. Staff is nice. Must stay here: perfect to meet new cool people

"Great value for money"

 Clean, accessible to all areas of Airlie. Good night life and facilities. We had a quite Saturday night visit. Air con and fridge inclusive in dorm facility. Worth the $20 we paid :) The staff were friendly and helpful. We left a jacket under the bed and it was located and returned. Very grateful

"Had a very good time"

Checked in way too early which was no problem, had a private room with fridge, plates, cettle and balcony. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and the view was good. Kitchen was clean and there is a large area with music in the evening to relax. Free WiFi in common rooms works fine. The staff was very friendly and booked a great tour for us. Would recommend!

"Perfect as a base to go Island hopping"

We stayed here for 3 nights while we went exploring the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef. It's a 15 minute walk from the Greyhound bus stop and the Cruise Whitsundays terminal but is right next to Woolworths and Macdonalds.  Maccie D's is particularly useful as the free wifi at Magnums is not great and only seems to work in the middle of the night!  The other facilities are good though with a decent laundry and plenty of washing line space. 2 kitchens are good and the bathrooms are outside which is quirky!  Our double room was small but well fitted out with fridge, cutlery and plates as well as a telly. You have to leave a deposit for the remote but if you are not lazy you can just do it the old fashioned way!  If you are in this part of the world, you only need somewhere to get your head down and this is just right for that!
