Liked: It was easy enough to get to, and quiet which was great as we were knackered from our bus journey. Rooms had air con and there was free wi-fi. I think this hostel is probably the best of what sounds like a bad bunch in terms of the hostels available at Airlie.

Disliked: I thought the kitchen needed a refurb- its pretty old and worn out. The cutlery/crockery wasn't that clean, and neither were the fridges. Bathrooms were so so.

Liked: The hostel manager was amazing at helping us find a trip on the whitsundays to suit us. We also got a free nights accomodation and free luggage storage for booking with them. They have a nightly trivia quiz where you can win a bottle of champagne and a film shown outdoors every night too. The rooms were clean and spacious. Comfy beds, good showers. Can't really fault this place.

Disliked: Nothing

City break

Liked: nothing really

Disliked: The staff was very unfriendly an unhelpfull, they hardly say hello when you pass them. The pool was dirty so theres no point in having it there when no one is using it. I would definantly NOT recomend this place to anyone, there's so many other hostels in Airlie beach that is a lot more nice.

Liked: It is an attractive place, with a sea themed paint job. The beds all have a shelf near them so the room is less likely to get super messy. Sunsets are amazing. The staff were amazing, I was very appreciative of their non commercial attitude.

Disliked: Its not on the main street. But its in a prettier location.
