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

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!

This is a fantastic hostel with clean rooms, great facilities and friendly staff. I had been staying in Cairns before going to Port Douglas, but Port O'Call offer a free pick up from Cairns which is fantastic. The mini bus driver up to Port Douglas was very informative, telling me about the local area along the way. Upon arriving at... More

How nice are you! Thanks for your words. I am so glad you enjoyed Port O'Call's facilities as our staff work super hard to present them to you. As the owner of Port O'Call the only way to know we are doing it right or wrong is from your feed back. Thanks again Tom Quealy More

Dear Robyn & Helen, I'm sooooo glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It seems like we could do no wrong. The staff and management here at Port O'Call enjoy what they do and I think that reflects in the way we treat our guests.

This is a great place to stay if you are traveling in Port Douglas, the location is perfect - it is peaceful and quiet and only a 10 minute stroll into the centre and the marina and less to the beach. It is in fact much closer to town than many of the more expensive resorts. My husband and I... More

I stayed for 5 nights in this super friendly, calm, quiet hostel, in a 4 bed dorm. The room was spotlessly clean, comfy bed, great quiet A/C, closet space, private terrace... The atmosphere was great, with lots of communal areas and stuff to do - ping pong, beautiful pool, kitchen, dining room, tv room, very good food at the bistro...... More

This hostel is really nice, the staff is very helpful and knowledgeable if you are looking for adventures. The rooms are neat and the place is well maintained. Swimming pool is a bit small but with the beach really closeby there is no problem. The city center is 10 mins walk though but I really did not mind. Lovely stay!
