"Beautiful Grounds"

This is possibly one of the prettiest hostels I've been to. It has a lot of trees and gardens, wooden walks and fountains, and the dorms are little cabins. There was a restaurant and bar on site, and very secure luggage storage. There are a few kitchens, which is convenient, with different eating areas. And it's not a far walk to the beach.

"Lovely Place"

Myself and my boyfriend stopped here twice on our Australia adventure at the start of 2015, we stopped here for 4 nights on both times and we loved it, the first time we were put in a 8 bed dorm, which only had 2 other girls in the whole time we stopped so we had plenty of room, the bathroom is basic but what more do you need than a shower, toilet and a sink! it was very clean and tidy and we found the staff very friendly! On the 2nd visit we asked for a private room as we had been out on the Whitsundays trip and I just needed my own space, aircon was brilliant it was actually too cold at times, woke up freezing during the night (which was a good thing) the beds are comfy and it was very clean, the staff are very helpful as to pointing you in the right direction of places, Woolworths is directly behind the hostel so your close to buying food to make or if you prefer to eat out your very close to restaurants, I would highly recommend anybody to stay here, also if you have a car they had a free car park which we left our car in while away on the Whitsundays tour and it was safe, no damage and very close to the hostel (next to the woolworths carpark) Overall we were very happy with our stay :) xxx

"Campervan stay and used tour desk"

We spent 5 nights here and stayed with the campervan! The camper facilities were great and the staff were lovely.
We also used the tour desk to book a boat trip and a couple of diving trips with Louise, who was really great and able to price-beat for us to get us a great price.

"Basic but perfect for the price"

We stayed here for 3 nights around our whitsundays trip. We enjoyed it here. It's very basic but it is one of the cheapest places we stayed in AUS! It has great kitchen facilities and washing rooms. The dorms are good and have private bathrooms. A double room is only an extra $8/9 dollars if there is 2 of you. Doubles are basic small but do the job! The bar and club at the front are very noisy but if you get near the back you can't hear much. WiFi is slow when everyone is on it as to be expected. We heard of a few break ins and things being stolen but we was fine so would say it's safe from our point.
