Hostel was in a gorgeous hut, cleanest hostel I've stayed in. Friendly and helpful staff. Cheap beer. And an amazing interactive tour of Koala Park, by tour guide Tony. All praise to Tony, he was awesome and helped with my phobia of snakes! Interact with koala, snakes, lizards, turtles and more. Only negative was the pizza served. They charge $10... More

What a fantastic hostel! I had specifically chosen this hostel, and was not disappointed. The 6 bed dorms are a must (much nicer than the 8 bed alternative) and not at all overpriced. They are air conditioned, and were spotlessly clean (something which is very important to me!). Staff were really helpful, and I really enjoyed the Champagne Brunch which... More

We stayed for four nights at the Bubgalow Bay Koala Village. First of all we got a room, which was obviously full! After complaining we got another room, which was very small and we haven't seen a cleaner during the whole time. One of the staff members were behaving like a real bit** and completely overreacting because of a simple... More

I was really looking forward to staying at Bungalow Bay as they advertise their 'resident koalas' being there.. I read this as them actually being around the hostel site but no you have to pay to go into the wildlife park- completely mislead you! We were given the key to our cramped hot room to discover ants all over the... More

The price is the draw card but if one looks around critically there are other options 5 times as good for just a few extra dollars. We stayed in a 'cabin' - I call it a tepe with bed on the floor and an AC that made enough noise to keep those in the campsites awake as well. If it... More

After staying at base on the other side of the island, bungalow bay was a breath of few hair with nice sized, clean rooms and a welcoming reception! Pool area was very nice and it's a good location. If anyone is wondering where to stay at magnetic this is definitely the place!

We had a private double bunker, it was basic, clean and comfortable. Only quibble was that the aircon didnt work and it was so hot with it being summer. It had a double bed, fridge, bin, mirror and a few sockets. You could buy wifi and internet access very cheaply from reception. All the staff were extremely helpful, knowledgable and... More

The rooms well cute little cabins but very tiny. The double bed felt like it was a mattress on floor but all this is fine. We booked package and was told... More

nice hostel and a relaxed atmosphere, nice stop when you just come from the bit more busy live in cairns. The rooms are quite big and have an ensuite bathroom. Next to that you can visit the koala sanctuary.

I spent Christmas Eve at Magnetic Island and Christmas day, so there was basically everything closed. Nevertheless, the beauty of the island was still to be discovered e.g. on the walking tracks and checking out the lookouts. The hostel was a good starting point, located only a few 100 meters away from beautiful horeshoe bay with a swimmer enclosure and... More
