Port O'Call is not only a clean, beautiful, quiet and relaxing accommodation but also it's run by friendly staff and his owner, Tom. Have a swim in the swimming pool, walk around the quiet town, and if Tom has a free day he will not hesitate on bringing you and other guests on to the river. I stayed there for... More

I planned 5 nights in port douglas but because of the excellent environment in port o call, I extended my stay and it was perfect. Very friendly staff, they are always happy and helpful rather than just being polite. I didnt know that they offer free transfers between PD and Cairns twice a week, which is very generous (the cheapest... More

Me and my sisters had the best time ever..! We truly felt spoilt at the hostel, it was more like a hotel to be honest. Very clean, the beds were comfortable and we enjoyed our outside balcony area as well as the swimming pool! The reception were great with organising our excursions and giving us advice, we didn't realise there... More

The owners are incredibly nice, and it's clear that they love the place and want everyone to have a great experience. No matter what the hour, I saw them around the property making various improvements and just generally putting in a lot of TLC. If only all accommodations were looked after in the same way. You'll enjoy yourself as long... More

We planned on meeting some friends in Port Douglas for a couple of days and found Port O'Call Eco Lodge had favourable reviews. They offered a free shuttle bus pick up from Cairns, which was a massive help to us. Tom pick us up and during the hour long trip gave us information on the local area and made us... More

Finally someone in Port makes a great green chicken curry - thanks. It has taste, it's hot but not so that you loose your mouth. It was made with a smile and delivered to my table by the chef - and I am writing this as I eat it.

I stayed here with my mother while travelling Australia, and it was definitely the top place we stayed. The staff were so helpful with planning activities and the food at the cafe there was great. The rooms were clean and everything was very well maintained. Great staff, great atmosphere. Definitely would recommend.

This was probably the top hostel I have ever stayed in! A friend and I shared a room and it was like staying in a hotel at hostel prices! The room was very clean, very neat and very nice. The overall setup is fantastic and the people working there were extremely helpful! I'd absolutely recommend this place to anyone!

Hi Wloftie, I remember driving you back to Cairns in our free shuttle when you dropped the "I'm from Moscow Idaho" line. I nearly choked. Firstly who would have thought such a town would exist in the USA and secondly who would have thought you are the second person I have met who comes from there! I just sent a... More

This place was so clean, my room was immaculate, you could tell the whole site is maintained very well and reguarly. My room contained 2 single beds and a set of bunks, again... More

Four of us (2 x couples) stayed here at the end of September and could not fault the accommodation, location or Tom, who welcomed us each day with a beaming smile and great advice! Pleasant stay in a pleasant area that I would definitely go back to if I had the chance!
