This is hostel is alright... but nothing more. It was not particularly clean, there was also a distinct lack of sockets in my room. Whilst in a good location, staff were not particularly helpful, and actually quite surly. I stayed in Backpackers by the Bay the following night, and although the accommodation was actually worse, I had a better experience..

Stayed at Airlie for 3 nights in March in a private room. We had a ground floor room and our balcony wasn't usable as it looked out onto lots of trees and bushes to shield it from the road. It didn't get any sun at all. The room was very basic, literally just a double bed which is annoying, a... More

We stayed here for two nights in a private room with a shared bathroom. Room was small, but had a double/single bunk bed. We had a small balcony area to the front of the street which made the room feel a little more spacious! Only came across staff when we were checking in/out, but they were polite and friendly. The...

Great specious room with individual plug sockets for each bed. Nice bathroom with shower. Very good aircon. Good size communal areas with a nice pool. Extremely central. Very happy with this place after some bad experiences. Only downfall is the extremely poor staircase at the back of the building. How they get away with that is beyond me. Take it... More

I stayed at Airlie beach YHA for 10 nights in both dorms and a private room . The rooms were very clean and spacious with air conditioning and lockers for personal items. The staff were absolutely amazing and could not have been more helpful. The hostel had a nice central courtyard where most fellow backpackers could mingle and share travelling... More

The first 3 nights, we stay in a private room with a double bed sharing a bath with another room. So small, enough space for the bed no for side tables. If you don't suffer from claustrophobia you will be all right. The last two nights we move to a more expensive room with a private bathroom, plenty of space.... More

We were very pleased with the Airlie Beach YHA. The kitchen was quite nice except that it had no freezers or ice machine. Most people opted to eat out in the courtyard when space was available. Our room, part of a two room unit that shared a bath, was very nice, especially since it had an air conditioning unit, which... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. It is one of the closest hostels to the bus drop off for Greyhound/Oz Experience and Premier. Rooms are clean and very comfortable with a/c. Staff are really friendly and it is a short walk to local amenities. Would recommend to other travellers

The conditions of both were nice. However the kitchen was almost abandoneded wirh only 2 or 3 stove rings working. Also, the laundry price is ridiculous!! A total disrispect!! Much... More

A friend and I rented a double room on two different occasions. The first time we were given two single beds and the second stay we were given a bunk bed. The front desk staff were good when it came to matching Agoda's rates and were good with short term notice with extending our stay. The rooms are pretty average... More
