Great price and location. Rooms are spacious and clean. Meal deal at bar next door- steak and beer $7! Only bad thing was the mattress was rubbish and you sink straight to the metal bed frame. Very uncomfortable.

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room here. The kitchen was spacious and clean as was the room. The air con in the room was very good which was needed in the humid weather! The staff were all very helpful and friendly, so all in all a good hostel!

For a budget backpacker in this iconic town it's pretty great, the staff are great the rooms are pretty standard backpacking fare with the added bonus of ice cold air conditioning. Something that is incredibly welcome in this tropical climate. A nice big meal with a drink for 6.50 every day you stay is an added bonus. If you're travelling... More

Very comfortable space, airconditioned room, ensuite, staff are super friendly,and helpful, made to feel right at home straight away, great meal and drink deals, really exceptional value, and high quality too, great social buzz, atmosphere, we found it super convenient for heading out to the Whitsundays, for diving, island hoping, and everything else, highly recommend.

I stayed here before and after my Whitsundays sailing trip and both times my experience was very enjoyable. Air con in rooms, en suite, very comfy mattress (but not the pillows), cheap meal deals with drinks and a central location to the bus station and the port.

We stayed here last week for one night after catching the night bus from Hervey Bay. It was early morning and we called to see if they had a shuttle from the greyhound bus, the woman on the phone was so blunt and said 'no you have to walk' considering we had loads of luggage was like a twenty minute...

Loved the hostel and the bar. Quality of the room is average, but the location is nice and there is a good vibe. However, they don't do pickups or drop offs from or to the busstation. So you'll have to walk for 15-20 minutes with your stuff in very hot and humid weather. Or call a taxi, but as a... More
