I was picked up at the ferry and brought back to the guesthouse. Make sure you walk past the bus and taxi stand to get picked up as I was looking for the car they advertised on their website and a different one picked me up. The only dorm room has 4 beds, no bunks. There is AC and 2... More

A slightly expensive (for us) way to stay in a tent, but the owners were welcoming and helpful, including a free transfers both ways from/to the ferry. The communal areas were well-equipped (kitchen, TV, DVD player etc.) but not as clean and sparkling as they could be, but the place had a nice atmosphere. Food is EXPENSIVE on Magnetic Island...
