Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice, quiet and familiar place. I definitely would come again. If you wanna go to the centre of Airlie Beach, there is a beautiful boardwalk next to the sea (ca. 25 minutes walk).

the shower in room 3A could do with improving - or at least a note stating that there is not enough hot water for one person to shower just after another.

We were given a deal on arrival for the cost of our room, dorms are in adorable little cabins with ensuites including a shower (which was terribly strong and either burning or cold, causing us all to dread showerin so be warned!) but we made so many friends and partied the weekend away! SO fun

The meal deals at the bar are really good. It is in the heart of Airlie beach. The staff are some of the best I've encountered in Australia (hostel staff, not bar staff)
