"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!

"Good Hostel"

Great location and they have an in house travel agency so you can book anything you want there, which is very handy. The hostel is kind of in the middle of a jungle but the rooms are nice and big. There is also a bar/club at the hostel

"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
