We stayed here for one night prior to heading out to Hook island to camp. We were not expected much.. just a place to sleep and organise ourselves - but i did not even want to sleep in the room due to the amount of mould on the ceiling (we stayed in a private double room). I know hostels aren't... More

Dear Sydneyannak3, We are really sorry that you didn't enjoy your recent stay with Airlie Beach YHA. We take all comments, good and bad, very seriously and I have passed your feedback onto the hostel manager so that we can take action. Since your stay this room has been de-moulded thoroughly. Airlie Beach is sometimes humid during summer months, which... More

We stayed for 2 nights here and the hostel is very well located, it is right on the main street but just far enough from the noisy bars. The rooms have balconies and the rooms and bathrooms are very clean. There is free parking in the hostel too. The kitchen was well equipped and kept clean too. The staff were... More

May not look like much on first glance, a little bit run down and the place could do with a bit of TLC, but for budget accommodation this place has everything you need and is clean. Good sized kitchen, dorm rooms were well air-conditioned, each had its own bathroom and lockers. I just wish they would provide soap!! Backpackers need... More

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

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
