This place is great! The rooms are GREAT value for what you pay. Super clean with all the amenities. There is a beautiful pool/lagoon/tropical paradise, with a bar/bistro right next to it. Ann was very friendly and super helpful! If you're bored, ask her about tours! She is a veritable fount of knowledge when it comes to booking tours. The river cruise is awesome!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and we couldn't have enjoyed it more! We were impressed with the room size and cleanliness. It was a treat to have air conditioning too!
The manager, Anne, took great care of us! She was very informed about the area and she had several suggestions about where to go, what to see, and what tours to take. When we make it back to Port Douglas, we know where we will be staying!!!

I had visited with a friend. We had stayed in a double private room. This was my first experience in a hostel, and I was quite impressed. My friend, who has had more more experience staying in hostels, had noted that this is unusually neat and tidy. There was even a little resort lagoon that you can go swimming in, nice touch. My experience was great. When we were there, it was quite hot. They turn off the AC around 6/7am and on again 5/6pm, so if you are around at any other time, you might find it too hot. The customer service was just okay. The lady was very nice, but the gentleman didn't seem to put any effort. Any questions seemed to have been answered shortly. But, all in all, it was a good experience. I would recommend it and I would go again. The recommendations they had for day tours were great!

Port O' Call is a pretty mellow hostel at the end of a quiet street. The rooms are very clean and the cleaning ladies are very friendly. They have an on-site restaurant that surprised me with some consistently tasty meals; I recommend the barrumundi with sweet potato mash!

This was one of the nicest hostels I stayed in, in Australia for a couple of reasons.

1. They will pick you up from the airport and take you to port douglas which saves you around $20. I'm sure they do this because you need a reason to pick this over the other hostels but its really good considering it is about an hour's drive. They will also take you back to Cairns city centre or the airport so long as you book it in.

2. They have free wifi that actually works! I've stayed in so many hostels where you have to sit in a particular place or the signal doesn't work etc. You get a login. Yes it's annoying that you have to put it in every time but you can use it in your room and its good.

3. They have a nice pool

The kitchen was ok. We were lucky that the hostel was quiet at the beginning on Dec so we had a 4 bed room all to ourselves which was perfect. We were able to store our passports and valuables in reception which was also good.

Negatives - it was a walk to the main part of town. I'd say 15 minutes which is fine. I wouldn't want to do it alone at night though. There were 2 of us but walking back next to the big woods was a little scary. It's really not far though and not far to the beach or the marina for the boat trips.

Great little place, but if you're looking to meet a lot of travellers then i'd say the better bet is to stay on the main street.

I stayed for a few days in this hotel.
Service was excellent. Rooms were clean and had more amenities than the usual. The common places were clean.
Definitely a great place for a very reasonable price, especially when one checks prices at other fancy resorts in Port Douglas.
