Liked: A superb little hostel situated about 15 minutes from the town centre, fantastic and friendly staff who even at 8pm managed to book us on a great barrier reef tour the very next day. Beds are extremely comfy and even got a fridge in our room to keep the beers cool, I've been in worse 4* hotels. Well worth the high rating!
