    The staff were wonderfully friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The location was great, with a view. There were lots of places to enjoy company or be alone.

    One of the stoves needs upgrading, as was very slow to heat up.

    Such a beautiful location! Very friendly guests and staff, quiet and relaxing yet still enough space to have fun.

    * Close to the Greyhound bus stop * Lovely common & outdoor areas (there’s a pool and a garden w/ a great view onto one of the marinas) * Free tea/coffee all day * Not far from town centre (10-15 mins max by foot) * Free shuttle to the marina meetup point for our Whitsunday tour! * Clean, well-equipped kitchen and clean bathroom (separate female-only and mixed bathrooms) * Lovely quotes and citations on the walls around the hostel made it feel that bit more “homey”!

    * No return shuttle available (had to walk 35 mins back) from the marina upon our return to Airlie Beach from the Whitsundays tour

    Nothing.

    The toilets were not clean. The sheets smelled. The toilets smelled. Online, we booked for a 8 dorm bed. But when we got there, we got know they don't have 8 bed dorm at all. This shows that wrong information is been advertised on the website. Expensive without any good quality living.
