“Amazing room!!”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

We stayed in a private double and were pleasantly surprised at how great our room was, we had our own en suite and kitchenette, walk in wardrobe, flat screen tv and a huge bed! We couldn't believe it felt like we were staying in a motel. The hostel itself is in a great central location close to shops and restaurants- a good stop if your going on the Whitsunday's.
Staff were helpful enough too. Only downside was when we stored our bags in storage rooms the girl on reception just told me to put it in there (it was unlocked) and didn't take any details from me or label our bags. The doors eventually got locked but we were a bit worried at the fact that anyone could just go in and pick up any bag. Also when we arrived off the greyhound bus there was no-one to meet us at the drop off point when I phoned the hostel they said we can either get a taxi ($10) or walk 15/20min, so that was a bit disheartening as all our previous hostels have always met guests off the bus. All round the hostel is a good place to stay they might just want to work on a few things.

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

The room at the hostel was spacious, as was the bathroom, it was in a good location and staff were friendly. Didn't use the pool and not sure many did as it's quite small and there is a really nice big lagoon over the road.

Couple of things we found annoying was the kitchen being closed at 9pm, reception closing quite early, and most of all, every single one of the eight beds in our dorm were incredibly squeaky! To the point where we were all waking each other up by turning over in our sleep!

If you like your private double with kitchen room without coat hangers, seats, bed side lamps, bedside tables, comfy beds, cooker, cupboards, complimentary soaps, ceiling fan.... and prefer just a sink, fridge, noisy aircon, plastic coated mattresses, screeching metal bed frames with ends (super great for tall people) and a wafer thin pillow (just one) this place would be ideal for you.

And just to make it all worse you're not allowed to drink alcohol in the room...you paid for.
You can pay to use the Internet. It's $4 p/h. No wifi in room though.

Oh and when you checkout, your'll need to bring your dirty linen to reception.
Still, at least 50% of the staff have a personality.
The lady on the reception is not friendly.

They have a campsite, if you bring your own van you should be okay. Otherwise avoid.

Room Tip: Spent the next night in x-base up the road - was much nicer & cheaper!!

We spent one night there on the Christmas eve. The lady in the front desk was not very professional and friendly when we checked in. We arrived around 7ish pm. And we asked her about the parking. She said we need to buy a permit to park so we decided to park in a cheaper lot and later after we came back from parking she told us actually because the room we booked is private and expensive. It is free for parking!! She could have/ should have told us earlier. Except that, the room is spacious and clean, but very simple. The shower is old. If you are looking for a private en-suite room, basically what you will get is a room with a twin bed put together. No desk, table, reading lights/lamps, or even a chair to sit. Just one piece of furniture-the bed you are going to sleep!! One good thing though is their location-on the high street. So easily go everywhere!!

We got into town really early so we had to wait for the office to open. Then we could not check in till 1pm, so not fun arriving at 4am with an infant and having to wait that long. They did let us store our stuff while we waited but it was a wasted day and we were really beat. The room was large, and we appreciated that a great deal. It was clean too. The staff were kind enough to not charge us the extra credit card charge given our having to wait etc. so that was very thoughtful. We also had annoying older couple trying to have drunken sex in the middle of the night…not fun to hear.

Room Tip: away from the bar is best to keep away from the noise of the bar at night.
