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

We are a Brisbane netball association and we have just had two teams and officials staying at Reef Lodge for four nights while we participated at the State Age Championships. The accomodation and facilities were first class. The rooms, bathrooms, kitchen and common areas were spotlessly clean and the staff very helpful. It is very quiet at night and we... More

Hi Liz and we are so thankful it all worked out for you the official and the girls. It is always nice to see these groups come through and the fact the girls seem to enjoy them selves.

A very clean hostel. Rooms are clean with comfortable air conditioning. The kitchen is big and clean too. Free wifi. Nice common area that you can meet people. The location is in the middle of woolworths and coles. I enjoyed my stay there!

I was drawn to this hostel as it was marketed as not being a party hostel. In that respect it met my expectations, quiet at night. I also found the other guests more interesting there (had some great evening conversations) than at hostels aimed at the partying crowd. I also found the place to be clean and well kept, and... More

It is always nice to get such positive feed back from customers. Firstly thank you for taking the time to post such a nice review. We do market our hostel as a quiet place which does cause a number of problems at times when it comes to our no drinking policy after 10-30 pm. However when you get positive reviews... More
