Port Douglas Backpackers Hostel

37 Warner Street, Port Douglas, Australia

Only opening in April 2015 the brand new United Backpackers Port Douglas has the ideal location in the heart of this little beachside township, just 5 minutes’ walk to everything. . We offer you freebies such as Wi-Fi in common areas, bikes, BBQ’s, car parking and even a shuttle from Cairns to Port Douglas if you stay 3 or more nights. We’ll keep you entertained with awesome daily events such as the favourite free cheese & wine night, taco & trivia Tuesdays, pool parties with DJ’s, games nights and movies under the stars on our poolside pop up cinema. We have heaps of sweet spaces to chill or play like the decked out pool area, bar, open air TV Room or alfresco dining. All rooms have AC, swipe card access, lockers and USB chargers. You’ll love the super relaxed vibe and our team who will make you feel right at home. We even have a hostel dog! Sure most backpackers will follow the usual trend of partying their way up the East Coast with a grand finale in Cairns which we highly recommend, but make sure you leave a few nights spare to relax and unwind on the stunning beach in Port Douglas.
