I first came to this magical place under difficult circumstances with the intention of staying for one night so that I could re-adjust my travel plans, and from the very first encounter with the beautiful and friendly people at reception I had a feeling that I could be staying there a little longer.. The rooms were very tidy and well... More

I’m 50+ and this was my first experience with "backpackers" accommodations. I knew what to expect and Dougies made it a very pleasant experience. The single room I stayed in was a great value.

Beach is five minutes from the hostel and town isn't too far either and there is... More

This place has a great vibe! They picked us up from Cairns and we pitched our tent for the week. We enjoyed using the BBQ and we appreciated the strict no noise in the camping area after 11pm. I love these types of hostels that know people want to have fun but respect that some nights people just want to... More
