"Beautiful"

Wow! Backpacking in style or just a weekend away (as we did) this place is in best location of town and surrounded by rainforest. A very cheap price too. The girls in reception were very helpful and the crowd they attract are happy open minded backpackers. We'll be coming back!

"Great hostel - nuff said"

Not much to say really. Clean, spacious, cheap and well maintained. Definitely the best hostel in airlie beach. Stayed with the other competitors and magnums beats them all by miles. I would rate this the 2nd best hostel on the east coast that I've stayed at.

“Great location, clean, calm and cheap”

We were lucky to get at Magnums as every other place we asked were fully booked (twin rooms at least). The funny thing was that the other places were a lot more expensive, and for some reason the cheaper alternative had plenty of rooms available. It had no reasons not to be fully booked as well, the rooms were clean, and places way in the 'back' of Airlies main street so that we got away from the noise. Our room were equipped with a waterboiler, a fridge, plates and cutlery and there were not a thing we missed. It was a shared bathroom, but you only shared it with the other rooms on your floor (3 in total), so you basically had it to yourself anyway.
Another plus was that when you rented a twin room your check out time were at 11 am instead of 10 am.
Breakfast was not included but they had nice facilities in the kitchen, and there were even little cafes/diners were you could buy food if you wanted to.
Magnums were located right in the main street of Airlie beach so your have everything right where you live. It is a brilliant place for a couple of nights in Airlie/Whitsundays.
