Everything from the friendly staff that can't do enough for you to the facilities to the BBQ and pizza nights put on...it's excellent. It's really really clean, comfortable beds, decorated beautifully, great pool area, great indoor and outdoor communal areas, good... More

Stepping off the plane was like having a hair-dryer to the face, but after a chilly few days in Melboune, it was most welcome. When we arrived at the hostel we were greeted... More

Probably more expensive than your average hostel but well worth it. Decent rooms, good social area and pool. Really good base for activities around carins - reef, cape tribulation, white water rafting etc. Staff very helpful in helping you arrange.

I have never stayed anywhere where you get a welcome as good as you do here! The staff are so friendly and amazingly helpful, and helped me plan my whole trip down the East Coast, giving excellent recommendations for tours and trips all the way down to Melbourne. Not only was this the best hostel I stayed in in Australia... More

Although I only check in at tea-time and left early the next morning, I immediately sensed that this was a decent hostel. All of the staff were friendly and helpful when I checked in. I booked into a single room, which was well furnished and maintained, as was the bathroom area located nearby. A ceiling fan hung above, although coins... More
