By far one of the best places I have stayed! Amazing scenery throughout the hostel, trees and birds everywhere!! Right in the middle of town so walking everywhere is easy! Great if your alone or with a partner or a couple friends! Thanks!
Great Stay - Trip Advisor
“Very well located and good value for money ”
This hostel is by no means luxury, but perfect for travellers!! For what you pay it's pretty good, we had a private room which was clean with a fridge and good air con. The showers are kind of half outside so there's bugs but they're cleaned daily, and can't really blame the hostel for bugs! The wifi is a bit rubbish at peak times, but with mcdonalds, the hostel pub, Woolworths and peterpans all having free wifi so close by it doesn't really matter! The hostel is so well located, right in the centre of Airlie Beach with a good cheap bar on site. The kitchens can get a bit busy and gross in the evenings, but the BBQ area is always good! For how cheap it is, it's an all round good hostel!

“One of the best hostels I ever stayed in!!!”
The hostel has a central location next to Woolworths and Maccas. The whole resort looks really beautiful, even after the cyclone. The cabins all have a private toilet and balcony which is a nice extra. Also there is free wifi and plugs at the barbecue area. Totally worth a stay and the best hostel in Airlie Beach from what I heard and experienced.

“Airlie beach visit ”
My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights. The hostel was clean, with two kitchens both well equipped and spacious. There is a wifi hub in the middle of the site and the rooms had working air con and mini fridges. It is also a very short walk to Airlie beach and has funky bars, cheap food, and a Woolworths on your doorstep. The staff on reception were very helpful, with special thanks to Mary who was very accommodating and friendly. We'd definitely come back to magnums!

Really cool hostel in a nice area, genuinely enjoyed staying here and staff were really nice. If you're doing the whitsundays trip the staff were really helpful with any questions etc. Very sociable place too and the rooms were clean. Alana who worked here, her service really stood out and made my visit very enjoyable!

I only stayed one night here in the 8 person dorm. The dorm room was a lot bigger than other backpackers I have been to and with ensuite toilet shower and air con included. There was air con and free WiFi but there was no WiFi in the room. The kitchen was good too. The price was good on $24 and they let me check in early with no extra cost. It's a great location in the centre of airlie beach right on the strip of bars, right next to Woolworths and the bottle shop. I sign says no byo alcohol but just do it anyway as long as you are discrete and hide it :)
Cheap Good Facilities Good Location - Trip Advisor
Hostel is pretty clean, the rooms were of a good size, although the top bunks didn't have bars on the beds which was difficult to sleep on for fear of falling out! The surroundings of the rooms and cabins are cool, making you feel like you're in the rainforest! Great location to the main strip with the bars, restaurants and to the beach and the marina for boat tours. People at reception very helpful, especially Louise. Wifi not in rooms only in designated wifi areas within the resort. Drinks quite reasonable at the bar, can get pitchers of beer or mixer for $15-20. If you go on a boat trip from here, they can store your bags for the day / over night for you for $5 pp. We stayed in a female only cabin which had its own private toilet and bathroom which was handy.
"Cool hostel in a great location." - Trip Advisor
We booked numerous trips through Magnum's Info Center and always came back to the same agent -- Alena. She was very helpful and enthusiastically explained any of the trips we inquired about during our visits to the kiosk while we were in Airlie Beach. She also checked the weather service for the best fishing and travel days out on the water. Be sure to ask her about the Spanish mackerel that was unceremoniously removed from her line by something bigger in the water than the mackerel.
This review is really about Magnums Information Centre - Trip Advisor
Good Hostel. Unfortunately, we were only there for one night so I can not say as much. The staff ... Good Hostel. Unfortunately, we were only there for one night so I can not say as much. The staff were friendly. The rooms are large and clean. The kitchen was well equipped and was also clean. The location was great right in town and it was well laid out. Front was the bar and restaurant then there was an input and it was kind of like in the jungle and then there were always small room with extra door. As such a bungalow. It was really great.
Stay Was too Short- Hostelworld
Magnums is in a perfect location along a main street of Airlie Beach. Plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars nearby, and the beach is a short walk. Pickups for any trips you do happen just up the road to it all couldn’;t be easier really. The staff are really helpful with sorting out details for the many trips you can do and will organise them for you. The rooms are in a beautiful tropical garden setting with a really nice atmosphere. All good for a backpackers really
Perfect Location - Booking.com
" The double rooms are small , but definitely adequate. Equipped with a kettle, fridge and own dishes . The shared bathrooms were hygienic and each day were cleaned . The kitchen we could use was super to cook . "
- The Wi-Fi was available at only one point in the hostel and not very good .
