I ignored the reviews and went anyway, and had a lovely time. I was travelling alone and due to the fact it was off season I got a whole dorm room to myself. The kitchen is very basic and the place could all do with a bit of a clean,but I have stayed at much worse hostels and the island... More

Ferry ticket price was ridiculously expensive, terrible service by staff out to rip you off, disgusting facilities, room looked like a cabin from a horror film, "luxurious" pool looked like it had never been cleaned. Ruined our stay in Airlie Beach.

I purchased a package through STA travel to stay at this island for a couple of days. Looking at the photographs of 'Paradise' I couldn't contain my excitement at being able to put this location on my travel map! However, my experience of Long island was far from Paradise. Barefoot lodge was run down, filthy and a health hazard! Our... More

The island it self is very 'back to nature'. The hostel was clean and basic. The staff were lovely. Cold food buffet was fine. Cocktails at the bar lovely. However, they need to improve the food off the menu, basic burgers and caesar salad ok, but thai salad and anything more complex definitely not as described. Would be our favourite... More

Where do I begin - this was possibly the worst hostel I've ever stayed at. The resort itself was quite rundown and shabby. In addition, everything was way overpriced and as there were no self catering facilities there was no choice but to eat at the restaurants and cafes at the resort. The kitchen was filthy and the bathrooms weren't... More

Arrived at Barefoot lodge, Long Island in Dec as part of a 6 wk holiday. Was very excited but that feeling soon left when we saw accommodation. We booked it as part of a package with Peter Pan so hadn't done our research. It's basically a hostel which would be fine but... This was terrible - rooms were so basic... More
