We had a fantastic time at Dougies, it's definitely one of the best backpackers that I've stayed in. There is a really relaxed, sociable atmosphere and the staff go out their way to make you feel welcome. They were particularly helpful when we booked our trip to cape tribulation and hired a car. The bar is also really good, inexpensive drink prices and there were some great themed party's while we were there. The rooms/tents were clean (we stayed in both) and had all the amenities a traveller needs. A great all round backpackers.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Dougies is run by a bunch of us who had lots of fun backpacking around places of the world before, so we decided to start a hostel ourselves. We have the pretty relaxed atmosphere, without all of the formal procedures that some hostels have. Our philosophy is 'kick back and relax at Dougies'. We have all of the facilities that a fun loving backpacker could ever need, including a bar, refreshing swimming pool, free bbq facilities, shop (coke, ice-creams, chockies, etc), a huge self-cook kitchen, laundry, internet, satellite TV (really big one), hire bikes, fishing rods, tour desk and of course accommodation (doubles, twins, share rooms, camping, van sites and our own stylish canvas tents). But once you see our tropical gardens and cruisy front lawn you might just want to lay back and relax under a palm tree, kick back in a hammock, by the pool or you may even like to unwind on the grass and soak up some of the Far North's warm tropical sunlight. ... more less
