“Neat, Clean, Hygienic - Helping / Friendly Staff”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

I wanted to explore Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands in March 2012. After doing some wandering research on the internet and discussions with my Oz buddies, i decided to stay at this Magnums Backpackers. Although i am not a proper backpacker but try to travel with minimum luggage so thought of staying here. When i arrived at Airlie Beach from Hamilton Islands, the first thing i noticed at the Magnums Reception that they are disciplined and organized with almost everything. Staff briefly narrated me the rules and regulations of the hostel, Dos and Donts, Fines and Penalties, Happy Hour and Silent Hours etc. The room i was allotted was enough to make 8 people settled and the most important "toilet and washroom" was hygienic enough to make yourself FRESH anytime. The dorm mates were friendly and accommodating. My 4 nights stay at this MASSIVE property was a treat for myself. I would definitely recommend this property for the travelers from every wake of life like Solos, Family, Couple, Friends etc.

Here is the conclusion :

Pricing : Fair (so many options from Rooms to Dorms to Private Rooms). Within Budget travelers limit.
Cleanliness : Fair and Hygienic
Staff Behavior : Friendly, helping and Trustworthy. (you can deposit passport, money etc).
Restaurant Food Quality : Fair
Restaurant Pricing : Not Bad
Bar Scene : In my opinion - Best Bar in Town with Music.
Bar Atmosphere : Good for all the options (Music, Party, Relaxing, Hanging out).
Location : Centrally located.
Transport : Available - Bus, Cabs
Adventures : They organize all kind of adventures for GBR. (Ask the staff).
Smoking : Only allowed in designated areas, not in the rooms.

Room Tip: Dont hesitate to ask for a better room if you dont like it, they have so many options. Doesnt matter...

Check-in wasn't great or overly friendly but thankfully the accommodation was!

Funky little log cabin style rooms with laundry facilities and bathrooms on every floor. Privates come with free unlimited aircon which is ideal!

If you book a tour with these guys you get 2 free night in a private cabin or deluxe dorm plus they hold your luggage free of charge for you so this is definitely worth doing.

Room Tip: It's definitely worth booking a trip through these guys and getting the 2 free nights.
