We lived in a female six-share room with private bathroom. The bathroom was not very clean and the trash bin in the toilet smelled like it wasn't taken out for more than a week. We had a very nice balcony that faced the inner yard. The bed sheets were doubtfully clean and not very fresh. The kitchen was very nice,... More

My friend and I thought the whole hostel was dated, especially the rooms/bathrooms. The reception area is tiny but the staff were very friendly and helpful when we were booking our Whitsundays day tour. The hostel was quiet when we visited, we didn't use the kitchen facilities but they looked good! The storage for luggage was handy and ideal due... More

Stayed for a couple of nights in an 8 person dorm. Room was nice and big - had been worried we'd all be crammed in. Everyone had their own locker which is nice and not always provided (in our experience). Also, an ensuite is always a bonus as opposed to communal washrooms. Clean rooms too. My only gripe is yes...

Being in my late 20's, my friend & I were worried that we might be too old for the hostel life but we loved our 3 night stay at the YHA. We paid for a private twin room, which was spotless. Complimentary towels & soap were also included & a massive help. Great location because it's just at the end... More

Very central and very good! A little expensive but the air con is really good and so are the showers. Love that you get a towel on the bed which is very helpful! Spent 2 nights here and I must say a thoroughly enjoyed it! Great thing also is the pool which is also great!

My partner and I booked this hostel last minute, as we realised we would need somewhere to stay the night prior to our 2 day/2 night Whitsunday trip. We booked YHA as it was reasonable price and good location, hadn't really done our homework on it so just turned up blind. This was the first hostel we have stayed in... More

We just stayed here for 2 nights. We stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm. The room was really clean and spacious. It had an en suite bathroom. Air con was good. There was also a balcony and the beds were quite comfortable. The hostel is located right in the centre of Airlie Beach town so restaurants and bars are... More

I stayed with a friend in a twin room for one night in November. Overall it was perfectly fine for one night but seemed a bit 'tired' and not a huge amount of character to make me want to stay longer. The location is excellent, close enough to everything, particularly the beach, but not too close to the nightlife to... More

The room was comfortable room and I enjoyed the view of the trees outside of the front window. The bathroom was shared with one room next door (The Hostel looked like... More

The hostel is in a good location in Airlie beach. Be warned there is no shuttle collection from the bus stop, therefore be prepared to walk with your packs. The rooms were a good size (6 and 8 bed dorms) but were run down and not fantastically clean. Specifically the floors in the dorms and balconies. The hostel charges extra... More
