Hostel was unique with Asian vibe and great value for money. Location is excellent, near bus stop and shops. Customer service would have been better and it's a bit weird that you have to like them on Facebook before you can use the wifi. Although, hostel is good value for money.

Reeflodge is an exceptional example of what a backpacker's should be; reasonably-priced rooms, in a quiet, brightly-decorated and safe environment. The gardens provide a welcome tropical touch to the atmosphere. The rooms are very clean, and well-serviced, the beds very clean and comfortable, and shower, toilets, kitchen and common areas are also very clean and excellently-maintained. There are plenty of...

Central to the city shopping district, museums, art galleries, the Strand and beach amenities, this quiet and very clean hostel is great value for money. The owner operators are consistently friendly and helpful as well. I stayed for 9 nights and was able to easily walk to all the main sights then come back for a really restful sleep. Wifi... More

Recently spent 6 days at Reef lodge and was surprised by Asian style decor, but it was a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Staff were friendly and helpful but understandably busy, Facilities were clean and modern and we'll worth the price. Room was spacious and clean, with 4 bunk beds and plenty of space for luggage. Enjoyed stay so... More

It`s a very pleasant and friendly athmosphere. Staff consistantly kind and helpful. Everything is clean and tidy and decorated nicely. It is close to Citycenter, the beach and the fairy to Magnetic Island.

This hostel was sufficient for a short my short two night stay. It's within a 5 minute walk of the Greyhound & Ferry and the same distance from the promenade. Clean with all the amenities that you need. Check in experience was very efficient but the focus on rules was off putting. My dorm was right on the road and... More

Firstly I'd like to say this place is clean and tidy and is worth spending your $$ on for a double room. Didn't see the dorms, only privates. Private room had a bar fridge, TV with some channels (not many) and a kettle with tea/coffee making facilities. Shared bathroom. What I didn't like was: 1. No mention of the fact... More

I loved everything about this hostel! The staff were very helpful and there was a really good atmosphere. The place has a real hippy vibe and was very clean. Extra attention to detail made it an excellent place to stay.

I stayed in a double room here for one night in May. Unfortunately it did not get off to the best start. When I arrived at 2.30pm the door to reception was locked. The first thing I saw was a bell on the wall which I assumed was to notify the staff of your arrival, so I pressed it. After... More

Firstly thank you so much for taking the time to leave your review as all feedback is good. I am not trying to excuse your reception when you arrived and for this I am sorry. However, sadly we do close for lunch for approximately 45 minutes. Our reception is otherwise open for some 12 hours a day. We try to... More
