Brilliant stay in Airlie Beach

We had two brilliant stays separated by a 3 day tour. The staff couldn’t be more helpful and the place is amazing, like being in a rainforest. Can’t recommend highly enough. Great location.

Great place to stay!

The Location was excellent right in the centre area. Friendly helpful staff. I booked a private chalet type room - and it was absolutely fabulous - roomy, excellent facilities, exceptionally clean and quiet. The key drop box was handy as I checked out early in the morning. Negative: Nothing - it was all great.

Had a great time here!

Had a great time here! Stayed just one night, arrived after hours, so phoned ahead to let Reception know. They advised they would pop a key in a safe box for us and text us the pin number, which they did. Super smooth check in. The room was fine, and the overall layout and feel of the place was great! Excellent location, right across the street from the lagoon. The friendly Reception staff were happy to mind our bags for a few hours after we checked out. Highly recommend this place 😊

The location!

The location of this hotel was great! It’s very close to the beach, shops, bars, and restaurants. Even though the downtown area can be a bit noisy I couldn’t really hear it from my room. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the facilities were very clean too.

Really convenient location

Really convenient location, right in the middle of everything. Love the rainforest vibes - had a private double with shared bathroom and although bathroom is all open, didn’t have any issues with cleanliness or bugs etc. Kitchen was always clean and plenty of space for cooking, not crowded. Staff were really friendly and helpful with booking trips, one of the reception staff remembered us and our plans personally a couple of days after check in which was nice. Would recommend & return.

Can't fault the place

Stayed for 3 nights for my birthday in Airlie beach and really enjoyed it. The place is so well run, clean, generous sized queen cabins, fully equipped kitchens with plenty of space. The adults-only element is perfect as it stops the screaming kids, and associated chaos 😂 The location is excellent, right in the centre of everything! The layout of the resort is genius because we never heard a single sound after 10pm from our cabin. There is a lively atmosphere out front with music and themed nights. Can't fault the place....I wish I had the money to stay a month, haha!!

Probably the best hostel on the East Coast!

This hostel was a pleasure to stay at. It was so clean, comfortable, there was plenty of plug sockets in the best places! The showers were good water pressure, good heat, and well designed so you can put your things and they stay dry!! The kitchens were so cleans and the only ones to have air fryers on the whole East Coast we came across! Would highly, highly recommend this hostel. The rooms and area was quiet and good WiFi.

Perfect place to stay!

I stayed in a Queen cabin suite which was lovely. The trees and plants outside gave it a wilderness feel and the room was decorated nicely, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. I had two washing lines outside my room, the parking was easy to get to and close to my room and the laundry and kitchen facilities were easy to use. Honestly this place has everything you need. Central to everything and just a short walk to the lagoon, the beach, the shops, restaurants and bars. This place was perfect for a female solo traveller because there was enough going on at the attached bar to meet new people but it was still quiet at night as my room was set back.

Hidden oasis in the centre of town

A real surprise when we arrived as it was in very busy street & hotel but a little hidden oasis that provided relaxation & privacy yet convenience to walk to everything including shops, lagoon & Port of Airlie.

100% Recommend

I came here because it had been recommended to me and I was right to choose it. Very clean, a very well equipped kitchen and a very pleasant atmosphere. I would choose it again if I had to repeat. The rooms are comfortable and very well equipped for its size.

Absolutely amazing place!

Super functional, great location, staff was friendly. Kitchen was super useful. A Woolies is like 10 steps away and you are a block away from the ocean and 3 min walk to the Lagoon which is an awesome public pool. Recommended!

Resort style accommodation in the middle of Airlie Beach

What a fantastic place to stay! It's so quiet that you wouldn't know that you were in the centre of town & just one block from the beach. Woolworths, BWS, cafes, restaurants, etc right next door. P.S. Highly recommend KC's for food & music!

Nice and cosy!

We stayed here for 3 nights, which was amazing. I was a bit worried that it would be loud at night since a bar was nearby, but it was really quiet. Rooms are small but not too much. It gives a nice cosy vibe and was in a natural environment. Kitchen was really clean and has pretty much all utensils. Toilets and showers were clean and we didn’t have any comflict with other people using those facilities. Has an ac and a fan, which were working well. I was sad that I needed to leave here ;(

What a fantastic place!

Super central and nevertheless in a quiet and green oasis (at least if you are staying in the private cabins). Loved sitting on the terrace in front of my cabin. Special thanks and shout-out to Jules at the reception: so knowledgeable! Really great recommendations for tours!

Honestly, a great hostel!

First of all, I would like to highlight the exceptional work done by the hotel's housekeeping team. Everything is very clean. The toilets are cleaned regularly and the kitchen is one of the cleanest I've had in any hostel I've been to in Australia. The hotel is quiet and the setting is pleasant in a forest that is quite relaxing. The staff is very professional and serious. Good value and great location in Airlie!

10/10

One of the nicest hostels I have been to! We got a private room and although it was small it was exactly what we needed! There were cutlery and plates and bowls in our room if we needed and there was even a mini fridge! They even provided towels. The bathrooms were really nice, and the kitchen was in great condition and very clean! The property as a whole was great and it was in minutes walk of the beach and lagoon and about a one minute walk to Woolworths! Really pleasant stay and I would definitely come back again.

We will be back!

Big shoutout to Maria, Dianne, and Shannan who made our experience booking the accommodation, finding our way around Airlie, and booking tours seamless, easy, stress free, and cost effective! Thanks to everyone at Magnums for the amazing stay. Walking into this accommodation we were surprised by how large it was and by the amazing amenities available to us to use. The hostel is like an amazing jungle escape and the grounds are so well cared for. We really felt like we got the full tropical experience in large part thanks to the amazing atmosphere created by the Magnums hostel. We will be back!

So EASY, big thumbs up!

Was fantastic, way better than we expected.... Lagoon across the road, supermarket next door and free parking. Jules got us an awesome sailing trip at short notice on Tongarra. We booked direct, our flight was late and they arranged a late check in which worked well.

Rainforest retreat right in the heart of Airlie

Great place! Great location! It's like staying in a rainforest but is close to attractions, restaurants, and shopping! We stayed in a private cabin, which was clean, spacious, had a private bathroom and everything we needed. Magnums even supplied ear plugs which was a nice touch, but we didn't need them. The vibe and atmosphere is fantastic. If you want to be social you can drink at the bar or play pool, or you can chill in the room and listen to the birds. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended!

Would recommend!

Such a beautiful place to stay, being amongst the trees/nature felt like we were staying in the jungle. Kitchen was clean and had everything you needed. Loads of outdoor seating areas with fairy lights everywhere. The bar connected was always buzzing with live music and lots of people.

Fantastic property!

Fantastic property, more of a resort rather than a hostel. I stayed in a cheap private room to chill after coming back from a Whitsunday trip and this was ideal. There is a cool rainforest vibe to the place and it's got everything you need.

Fun tropical experience!

This accommodation is great! It’s designed as a tropical resort with multiple cabins throughout the property. Rooms and bathrooms are clean (bathrooms surprisingly clean since they are open to the outdoors!), the kitchen is well stocked and the location is perfect. It is attached to the Magnums bar with outdoor seating area and nightly live music, which was very fun! And despite the proximity to the bar, noise cannot be heard from the rooms. Highly recommend for young travellers, solo backpackers, couples or friends:)

Would definitely recommend to anyone!

The room was super comfortable and came with great amenities such as a mini fridge, plates cutlery etc. The bathrooms felt clean and were easy to get to for everyone, regardless of where you were staying as they were on each floor. Wi-Fi was really and staff were super helpful. Kitchen was very clean and in nice condition and there was also an outside BBQ area which was fun to use. There wasn’t anything we didn’t like about the property.

Spectacular!

Everything about Magnums Airlie was amazing! Arrived late, got late check in easily. Staff responded to all questions before arriving. Hostel grounds one of the best we've been to! Stayed in 2 double private room and had bar fridge. Everything was clean, tons of outdoor seating spaces with large umbrellas or in sun. In middle of town but you would never know it on hostel grounds. Large kitchen, huge fridges, Magnums Bar - fab live bands. Jules and Chris rock Reception & tour booking!

Excellent

Really good value for money! You get a perfect location and live in a jungle for a few days. Not the most luxurious but for the price I think it was excellent. Highly recommend if you’re on a budget and want to be central to Airlie Beach.

Beautiful, fun place to stay

Magnums is located right in the middle of beautiful restaurants, pubs, shops and much more. The reception was fantastic and Julie was great at explaining all the tours. Seeing it’s next to a pub we were worried about noise at night, but we couldn’t hear anything which was great. And such a short walk to the lagoon was awesome. Definitely will stay again!

Best place to stay - close to everything

Close to everything, good value, great facilities and great staff. We decided to stay here instead of a fancy hotel, due to how much time we spent out and about, the value, and how close it is to everything. They have all you need - kitchen, laundry, bar, it’s next to a shopping centre, bottle shop, and your services!

Great accommodation in heart of Airlie Beach

We came to Airlie Beach so we could access the Whitsunday islands. Because we wanted to do a sailing trip, we didn’t want to spend a fortune on accommodation. Magnums offered great accommodation for an affordable price which meant we could afford to eat out at some of the local restaurants.
Communication before our visit was great. Staff were friendly & helpful (particularly at the main desk). Loved the location of Magnums - so close to everything!
Highly recommend this as an accommodation option when at Airlie Beach.
