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.

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
