Stayed at the parrotfish for three nights in a six bed dorm. I have to use the word stay and not slept as sadly the amount of sleep I got was limited. The hostel is very noisy.. We were in a room right near where people seemed to congregate after they had been out. On our first night we were... More

This lodge is centrally located and has very friendly staff they serve a bowl of great fruit for breakfast it is a backpackers lodge so reasonably priced BUT our upstairs private room was basic and reasonably clean and the water pressure was variable according to how many showers are going, sometimes just a dribble. There was young persons noise but... More

Myself and 2 friends stayed at Parrotfish as it was the only hostel in Port Douglas with availabity for us all to stay in the same room. As soon as we arrived, we realised why this was the case. The place looks like it's falling apart. The walls are crumbling, there's rubbish everywhere, the so called TV room looks like... More

The only reason I didn't give this place one circle rating is because of how close it is to the marina and promenade. My friends and I stayed as a large group and the moment we stepped into the room we knew we weren't going to be pleased with the rest of our stay. The room was untidy because it... More

On check in the receptionist didn't charge one of our group members for the 1 night stay which is a simple mistake to make but we wasn't informed of this until 2 hours after check out. They also didn't know which group member they didn't charge, so they would have just charged anyones card if we hadn't have gone back... More

I've stayed here for 3 weeks last december and it was the perfect place to finish my 3 months travels round Australia. Parrotfish was just great to come down, relax and to enjoy the beautiful side of life. I loved the pool area and the rooms were big and clean compared to all the other hostels I stayed in before....

I worked in Port douglas for a couple days and stayed in Parrotfish. It is a very cool hostel with quiet athmosphere and polite personal. I liked it very much. Everytime when I had questions the people on the reception helped me quick. You have a good access to wifi and free computer available. Visit this place.

Great to head in for a drink depending on if your made welcome! Wouldn't recommend you booking in to stay. Very unclean rooms.. shower area and dirty kitchen. Very quiet this can be a good point for some people. But we later found out it was quiet as there were not a lot of people staying here. A few moved... More

I stayed in Parrotfish lodge a couple of days and it is very clean, good and free breaky. The staff is always friendly and funny. There is a nice bar in the Hostel where you can play pool and drink beer. A very good place to stay in Port Douglas
