Came here on an overnight stop before heading up to Cairns, I arrived and reception was closed at midday which was odd, so I sat in the courtyard area and they where playing reggae music, which to some gives a hint that drugs could be used on these premises. Finally got to my room which was basic but nice. There... More

Dear Guest, My sincere apologies you did not have a good experience at our backpackers. We do sometimes play reggae music but I can assure you we are not using drugs, it is just simply nice summer music especially for the pool, although I can understand where you are coming from. It is also unfortunate that you happened to get... More

We stayed here for one night - Nice rooms and comfy beds. There are lots of facilities like a big kitchen, TV and pool! The staff are really friendly and helped us book transport. Would stay here again.

We stayed here for one night before our magnetic island trips and we are glad it was only one night. We were told there was a shuttle to bring us to hostel from terminal but when we arrived and called reception we were informed it wasn't actually working on that particular day even though we had arranged it already.

Dear Guest, My sincere apologies that you did not enjoy your stay and that there was a mix up with the shuttle! With regards to the air conditioning, the cleaners just simply knock while they are going around, and if we notice a room which is unoccupied we try to turn them off. This is to keep costs down and... More

This place looks like a scene out of a scary movie. Several junkies everywhere, we felt really unsafe and didn't leave our valuables in the room whenever we left. We only stayed one night as we needed a place to sleep while driving the east coast and we should have just slept in the car. This place is unsafe and... More

Like many young travellers this was chosen because it is a cheap place to stay, however for quality, it's the worst backpackers I've ever stayed at. We arrived as a late check in which was fine, you just have to inform the reception because they close at 7pm. On arrival we were a bit surprised to find the backpackers so... More

After driving 10+ hours I needed a good night's sleep at a reasonable price and that's exactly what I got. Great value for money with friendly staff, especially the very knowledgeable Scottish lass at reception. Sure enough I was most pleased with my stay.

“Ask for a room with a mini fridge so you can keep drinks cold for the hot sun!”
 of 5 bubbles StearmanKiwi, 1 Mar 2016 | Read review
“Ask for room near bathrooms, toilets by the pool as well. Rooms on the side of the water are the quietest.”

“If there are two of you travelling the double rooms only cost $27.50 per person which is only $3.50 more than a dorm room, therefore I would recommend this option as they are nice rooms.”
