Basic with not a lot of atmosphere. Nice kitchen and rooms and well organised. It has a pool. No bar. Not great for meeting people but brilliant for staying either side of your Whisunday trip. Good value and you can leave your stuff they during your trip. It's in a good location near the sea front which has some good restaurants and bars.

Having stayed at other YHAs in Australia we were expecting a certain standard, but how this is still in the YHA family I do not know, it was terrible. We had a twin with a shared bathroom. It was run down and dirty. The staff were terrible too, when we asked if there was a shuttle bus to the airport the conversation was like something out of 'Little Britain'. Yes there was a shuttle bus.... pause. Q how much is it?.......pause $15. Q can I book it.......pause yes. Q can I book it then please? Vacant behind the eyes. The toilet by the pool was thoroughly disgusting, it didnt look as though it had been cleaned for an epoch.
Airlie was looking pretty run down, but there seemed to be better hostels towards the front.

The YHA needs to get a grip of this place, knock it down and start again or give it a thorough clean and please give the staff some customer service training.

This is not the nicest YHA's you'll ever see, but it's still OK and certainly not bad.

We stayed here for a night before heading off on a 3 night Whitsunday tour on the Ron of Argyll. There is nothing wrong with this hostel. It just wasn't good value for money. Our double room was, but quite small and with v noisy air con, which kept me awake. Would have turned it off but as we were overlooking the main street, opening the windows meant you then got the noise from the bars in the evening and the rubbish trucks in the morning.

Also, their baggage storage is a bit dodgy. They charge more than other hostels to keep your bag in a garrage that anyone can enter. We decided to use the baggage storage in the PeterPans travel agents instead, which was cheaper and more secure.

In all fairness, the price of this hostel isn't any more expensive than most of the others in Airlie Beach. It's just a shame that you don't get more for your money.

I think his name was Alex and he was so helpful he had the answer to all of our questions on trips, YHA membership, greyhound buses, next YHA etc. Nothing was too much problem. That aside the hostel is well placed in town being just down the road from the rowdy hostels and guaranteeing a much better night's sleep. The room was clean and the ensuite shower hot and powerful. Kitchen was a good size and fairtly well equipped but staff need to keep on top of travellers who don't wash up after themselves,
