This is my favourite hostel where I have stayed in. I got picked up from the bus station and dropped off there for the ferry to Magnetic Island. The couple who runs the place is very nice and friendly. I enjoyed walking to the top of castle hill in the morning with the owner. I found all the facilities very... More

When I visited the new owners had just taken over a few days before. The hostel was very clean and the staff very friendly. They also provide free wifi and complimentary pick up and drop off at the greyhound station.

I came here with 3 friends at the start of the easter holidays and couldn't say how lovely this hostel is. Compared to others the atmosphere is very personal and relaxed. The owners are new and very eager to help you and tell you all the best spots and provided ways of getting there. The free shuttle service saved us... More

The first was when we arrived at 1:30am off of the Greyhound which was about a 20-25 minute walk to the hostel, where they had the keys put in a safety box... More

The hostel itself is very clean with a nice common area, kitchen facility and free wifi. Our room, a private double, was equipped with a fridge, small sink and... More

I had two nights at the civic pub. The linen and towels very clean, and the output of the shower was comfortable temperature. There is a small fridge and sink, and a microwave. It is conveniently close to the convenience store and mall.

I stayed here between my trips from airlie beach and magnetic island, was nice enough but would not stay more than one night. Rooms were clean and the free wifi was a plus even if it only worked in the reception area. The only negative is that even if you are slightly intoxicated they claim they will evict you and... More
