“Good spot, near to everything.”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

The first 3 nights, we stay in a private room with a double bed sharing a bath with another room. So small, enough space for the bed no for side tables. If you don't suffer from claustrophobia you will be all right. The last two nights we move to a more expensive room with a private bathroom, plenty of space. I found the place run out and screaming for maintenance.

We were very pleased with the Airlie Beach YHA. The kitchen was quite nice except that it had no freezers or ice machine. Most people opted to eat out in the courtyard when space was available.

Our room, part of a two room unit that shared a bath, was very nice, especially since it had an air conditioning unit, which masked noise from the courtyard at night.

The staff members were very helpful and kind. My wife found parking nearby since all on-site parking was filled.

Stayed here for 2 nights. It is one of the closest hostels to the bus drop off for Greyhound/Oz Experience and Premier. Rooms are clean and very comfortable with a/c. Staff are really friendly and it is a short walk to local amenities. Would recommend to other travellers

Taking into account only the room and staff, this place present a decent value for a traveler. I stayed at double room that had shared bathroom with another double room. The conditions of both were nice. However the kitchen was almost abandoneded wirh only 2 or 3 stove rings working. Also, the laundry price is ridiculous!! A total disrispect!! Much better walk a few minutes to a private launderrette located at the same street that doesn't rip you off.

Dear Rafael,
Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at Airlie Beach YHA. We take all customer feedback very seriously and appreciate you taking the time to write to us.

First of all I would like to apologize for the experience you had with the stoves in the kitchen. Since your feedback I have spoken to the hostel manager and all stove rings have been checked to ensure that they are all in working order.

Our laundry has dryers and washing machines that all operate at $3 a load. The Hostel Manager has checked the laundry equipment to ensure that they are in working order and not taking more coins than required.

Next time you stay at any YHA please make sure you let someone know during your stay if there are any issues, so we have a chance to try and fix the issue to make your stay more enjoyable.

Thanks again for your feedback, it is a valuable tool which assists us to monitor our performance.

Kind Regards,

Anouk
Operations Assistant

A friend and I rented a double room on two different occasions. The first time we were given two single beds and the second stay we were given a bunk bed. The front desk staff were good when it came to matching Agoda's rates and were good with short term notice with extending our stay. The rooms are pretty average and the bathrooms are clean for a hostel.

We got into Airlie Beach on a Wednesday morning, saw the YHA, having not booked a hostel and went in to book a boat tour and accomodation. The staff were friendly and really helpful and got us sorted on a boat and a nights stay either side of the trip. We were provided with a 50% off food voucher for a bar on the main road and free storage of our backpacks and valuables in a safe while on the trip.

We had a 6 bed mixed dorm which had only my friend and me staying in it both nights. The room had a balcony and a bathroom/ shower. The accomodation was basic, but then what do you expect from a hostel. It was clean and after a heavy night on our last night they even allowed us to sleep off the hangovers in our room past check out time.

We were very pleased with the service and help the staff provided us as they made our trip to the Whitsundays so easy.

We booked a private twin room and even if the room was really small that was enough for 2 nights.
We shared the bathroom with the other private room but it was clean and it worked out well!
We could hear people partying in the room next to us but since they stopped before midnight we can't complain!! It's a youth hostel so we didn't expect a quiet place anyway but when we saw the other hostel with bar inside, I think we picked the good one for the quietness!
Otherwise, the hostel is conveniently located.
The lady at the reception was really nice and advised us to take the scenic flight for our transfer to Hamilton island which was the best idea ever!!!
