Best hostel I've been to in a long time. The staff is friendly and went out of their way to help me. The rooms are quiet and clean with en suite bathroom. I ate at the bistro several times. The food was good and reasonably priced. The kitchen facilities are good too.

I came to Port O'Call specifically to do the volunteer program they offered with Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and ecoreserve. The volunteer program was amazing, I got to hold baby koalas, pademelons, and even wrestle a few crocodiles. The people I worked with tried hard to do something cool with me everyday. But Port O'Call was my home away from home.... More

I stayed here when visiting the Daintree Rainforest and was looking for something nice and cheap that had good reviews. The most important feature I found was that there was a free shuttle bus service from Cairns airport and CBD to the hostel, and then back again after you check out. I cannot stress how handy this was, saves you... More

We stayed four nights in port o call, the day we checked in, we felt the easy going vibe in the hotel and lots of young people and families choose to stay here because the big commune kitchen saves you lots of cash considering the expensive price for dining out in town. The kitchen has almost everything but u need... More

What a wonderful place! When travelling, every now and then one comes across a really special place like Port O'Call. This is my second stay here in 3 months. The first time I shared in a 4 girl room with ensuite. It was sparkling, it had a fridge, hair drier and a full length mirror! Last week I shared a... More

The lodge has a great environment for travelers and families. The managers Steve and Kiri are really welcoming and genuinely excited to share their knowledge of the region and make it easy to choose what to enjoy in/around Port Douglas and Great Barrier reef. Free shuttle bus from the airport! The accommodation is basic but the beds are really comfortable... More

I spent three nights at Port O'Call in June. From pick-up in Cairns to departure, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. They really know a lot about the local area and what to do in Port Douglas and surrounds. The room itself was clean and spacious, and the complex was peaceful and well situated for the beach, town and... More

I stayed here in May and I was disappointed with it. It's winter now so it doesn't matter if you don't have air conditioning on until the evening but I don't like paying $5 to use a blanket for my bed (sheets are only supplied). There are no lockers. The tv room is a room with 3tin walls and a... More

I stayed a week in Port O'Call Eco Lodge and I really enjoyed my stay. The hotel is really quiet and clean. The room are very good and having a private bathroom is great. Thanks to Kiri and Steve I have been able to enjoy my week in Port Douglas, they advised me things to do and took the time... More
