So, having been at this hostel four years ago I decided to return. I was greeted by a lovely man (Tom) from reception who even came outside to the shuttle bus to help me with my luggage! What a great impression this made. The hostel is one of the more expensive in the YHA network but the dorm I was... More

I can’t speak highly enough about this place! I had only planned to spend a few days here, but quickly decided to extend my stay. And I am so glad that I did! This place is more like a resort than a hostel. Initially, I stayed in one of the 4 bed shared rooms, which are more like motel rooms... More

We slept three nights in this hostel. We laughed a lot with the owner and he was very friendly. He was always there for us, even when the reception was already closed. Weate in the restaurant and it tasted very good. I would recommend this hostel to everyone. We had a nice time!

We spent five great days at Port O'Call! A very nice place with small but very pleasant pool area and a good value bistro with lively atmosphere and tasty food. It was clean and the service was very professional. The location is also convenient, close to the center, the beach and the marina. But, the best thing at Port O'Call... More

My girlfriend and I spent 10 nights at this cute place. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly people helped make this a very good base for our trip to Port Douglas. The staff was very helpful in all matters from sightseeing tips to wildlife trivia. The food in their own restaurant was surprisingly good and we ended up eating there 4 times.... More

This is nice accommodation just up the road from the marina. This makes it handy for those going on reef tours, which we were. The receptionist was very helpful and informative and we were checked in very quickly. We had a double room that was clean & comfortable with a large TV and although the bistro was a bit noisy,...

I stayed in both the private and shared accommodation, and i have to say both were well above average hostel standard. The private room was spacious, clean and well furnished, and the shared dorm was clean and with a ensuit bathroom. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, only 150m from 4 mile beach. I... More

A really nice hostel with wonderful staff. In my experience this has been the cleanest hostel in Australia. The lodge is really close to the beach and maybe about a 15min walk to the town centre. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.
