We just stayed here for 2 nights. We stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm. The room was really clean and spacious. It had an en suite bathroom. Air con was good. There was also a balcony and the beds were quite comfortable. The hostel is located right in the centre of Airlie Beach town so restaurants and bars are...

I stayed with a friend in a twin room for one night in November. Overall it was perfectly fine for one night but seemed a bit 'tired' and not a huge amount of character to make me want to stay longer. The location is excellent, close enough to everything, particularly the beach, but not too close to the nightlife to...

The hostel is in a good location in Airlie beach. Be warned there is no shuttle collection from the bus stop, therefore be prepared to walk with your packs. The rooms were a good size (6 and 8 bed dorms) but were run down and not fantastically clean. Specifically the floors in the dorms and balconies. The hostel charges extra...

The backpackers is in a good location. Just on the end of the main strip but still close enough to everything. The room was clean and bathroom was good. I enjoyed my stay here and would recommend to friends.

The hostel is in a good location and has good facilities. I was in a 6 share dorm and there was only 3 of us in there which was a bargain, and the room was so clean. The bathroom was also great and spacious, and the shower was nice and hot.

Stayed here for three nights. Couldn't fault the hostel at all. Lovely helpful check in staff, good kitchen facilities, clean and friendly. Kitchen area closes at ten which is a bit unusual, as most hostels the common area would be open later, and you had to pay a deposit to get the remote, it's close to everything in Airlie and...

We stayed here one night on our road trip back from Cairns on December 30th. Overall it was a good experience with reception leaving the key in the lock box as we had a late check in. The hostel is extremely central to shops, restaurants and attractions. It was noisy due to being so close to the night scene but...
