My husband and I stayed in the double ensuite bungalow, which was very comfortable and very private, but this place has a camp site and dorms as well so there are lots of accommodation choices. You can also self cater in the kitchen or enjoy the tasty pizzas and other meals on the menu down at the bar. There are...

I stayed in a eight female dorm with ensuite. The room was large and the shower ok. The kitchen got a bit cramped at busy periods. It is located a five minute walk to horseshoe bay. The communal areas were really cool. They only had one washer working, which was not good! A possum joined us for dinner every night...

Sitting outside out bungalow a kangaroo came right up close, the wildlife tour was brilliant, we got to hold Koalas, snakes, birds, crocs and turtles! And a must do is the breakfast with koalas, we had a glass of guava champagne and...

My stay at Bungalow Bay was fantastic! Rustic little cabins with wildlife everywhere, had my first encounters with Australia's native wildlife and the breakfast with koalas is amazing. Large clean bathrooms and laundry facilities and a qaint little bar with great food. Would definitely stay here again.

This is the only place on Magnetic Island that you can stay with a campervan so you kinda have no choice but to stay here so good job it's good! The amenities are clean and tidy and the camp kitchen is vast and has everything you need. The chill out area in the front has huge beanbags for lounging round...

I stayed here for 2 nights and loved this hostel. Location is great, just a 5min walk to the beach. I booked a 6 flash packers dorm, and it was worth the money with a ensuite bathroom and lockers. Kitchen is at the campingground and is ok for a hostel. I enjoyed every minute at bungolaw bay and would definitely...

Bungalows are well nice, air conditioned and up to date. The Koala cuddling experience and the wild life was awesome. I loved Pebbles :-) It's so informational!! The only down fall was that we wanted to stay an extra day and we asked days ahead which they said they we saving beds for if anyone wanted them and when we...

I had a lot of communication with BBKV before booking and staying for three nights and they did their best to answer my questions. I recognize now in hindsight that it was difficult to get back with me because they were constantly busy and often understaffed for the needs of the visitors. This place is extremely rustic. Do not come...

The bar restaurant and all of the surrounding activities to the hostel such as the koala sanctuary were all really good and good value for money. I stayed in an 8 share mixed dorm (bungalow) , it had quite a lot of room but the bathroom was tiny. The bungalow had fly nets across the windows, but no actual window,...

We went to a party on the other side of the island and were informed it would be easy to get a cab back, this was not true, leaving us stranded, this was completely irresponsible. Also witnessed an upset customer receiving some really poor customer service, and the member of reception mocked her after she left, not a good vibe....
