We were a bit concerned that it might be a 'backpackers' place - and it is- but it is much more too. A lovely base for the GBR and Port Douglas.

I came to Port O' Call expecting another standard hostel in a pretty place - I got so much more! This little gem of a hostel is clean, well maintained, in a wonderful location (maximum ten minutes walk from the main town and the beach) and it is run by the friendliest people who make you feel right at home....

We had a great stay here, very well set up, so much cleaner and better orgsnised than other YHAs I have stayed in whilst in Queensland. Staff are extremely helpful and well informed and free wifi was a big bonus. Would highly recommend.

When I was staying there couple nights in shared room I was thinking about writing review saying simply that every hostel should be like this. Nice rooms, manager switched me to the room with another guy my age saying that this will be a fit and and .... I had a nice company. Hope to be back one day.

This place is great! The rooms are GREAT value for what you pay. Super clean with all the amenities. There is a beautiful pool/lagoon/tropical paradise, with a bar/bistro right next to it. Ann was very friendly and super helpful! If you're bored, ask her about tours! She is a veritable fount of knowledge when it comes to booking tours. The... More

The manager, Anne, took great care of us! She was very informed about the area and she had several suggestions about where to go, what to... More

I had visited with a friend. We had stayed in a double private room. This was my first experience in a hostel, and I was quite impressed. My friend, who has had more more experience staying in hostels, had noted that this is unusually neat and tidy. There was even a little resort lagoon that you can go swimming in,... More

Port O' Call is a pretty mellow hostel at the end of a quiet street. The rooms are very clean and the cleaning ladies are very friendly. They have an on-site restaurant that surprised me with some consistently tasty meals; I recommend the barrumundi with sweet potato mash!
