I would highly recommend this place for anyone caravanning or looking to camp in Port Douglas on a budget. In addition to them being the cheapest accommodation I've found in Port Douglas, they have super friendly service, clean shared areas, cheap bar specials and the camping area is a mini village of it's own. Many long-term campers have set up complete outside living rooms and are happy to welcome backpackers in for a cup of tea or friendly beer. Great energy all around! Dougies is where it's at.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Dougies is run by a bunch of us who had lots of fun backpacking around places of the world before, so we decided to start a hostel ourselves. We have the pretty relaxed atmosphere, without all of the formal procedures that some hostels have. Our philosophy is 'kick back and relax at Dougies'. We have all of the facilities that a fun loving backpacker could ever need, including a bar, refreshing swimming pool, free bbq facilities, shop (coke, ice-creams, chockies, etc), a huge self-cook kitchen, laundry, internet, satellite TV (really big one), hire bikes, fishing rods, tour desk and of course accommodation (doubles, twins, share rooms, camping, van sites and our own stylish canvas tents). But once you see our tropical gardens and cruisy front lawn you might just want to lay back and relax under a palm tree, kick back in a hammock, by the pool or you may even like to unwind on the grass and soak up some of the Far North's warm tropical sunlight. ... more less
