This place was perfect for us. It had a great kitchen facility which was extremely handy as we had fish to cook that we caught for several days. There was also a nice pool and ping pong table which was fun. Inside the rooms were comfy with big TV's. Being able to rent the GoPro cameras for our dive was... More

Great place to chill out. Clean, cool, well ventilated rooms. Just a short walk to the beach. Has lots of communal areas to relax, a big TV,a pool. If you stay in a dorm you get your own locker which is very convenient. And every room has its own fridge and bathroom. The front desk is very helpful sorting stuff... More

Such a good hostel! The staff helped me as a solo traveller get together a group of 6 to hire a boat and go crock spotting (we saw 6!!), they've also been on many of the local reef and Daintree tours themselves so can give you some really good recommendations. The restaurant and bar opened up during my stay as... More

We made a long weekend and got a great deal on flights and headed up to Port Douglas. Picked up a small car in Cairns and went straight to Port o Call.Tom couldn't have been more helpful, directions tips, packages for diving and snorkelling. Port'o Call is more like a converted motel, but very funky. Tom made us feel right... More

Great place - definitely recommend to anyone looking for inexpensive accommodation in Port Douglas. All very clean, nice big lockers in dorm rooms. Staff incredibly helpful and friendly. 15 minutes walk to main Street. Lovely pool. Bar closed while I was there which was a shame.

I stayed at Port O Call for 4 weeks as part of a volunteer programme in the Wildlife Habitat in Port Douglas and we only did so because the other hostel the volunteers stay in was being renovated. You can see that the lodge isn't really set up for backpackers. Although the free wifi, large tv lounge, pool and ping... More

I stayed with Port O Call for nearly four months while I worked in Port Douglas, it is the perfect place to stay if you're working hard and need a good nights sleep but at the same time you like to socialise and meet new friends. Thankyou to the staff Tom, Kevin and Kiri for being so friendly and helpful... More

This place is very well managed, every staff member is super friendly and useful. As a solo traveller, I like sharing a place for its social aspect even if I like some quiet time. Port O'Call is the perfect combination for this. Families with children stay here as well as backpackers, couples, solo travellers, a nice mix. Every dorm room... More

Excellent budget accommodation. Clean, friendly staff (top class, Kev!), helpful and everything you'd expect and more, for the price. Centrally located and within walking distance of the beach and village. Easy to find too. Highly recommended.
