Fabulous stay. The staff really looked after me for a quiet room. Kitchen was always very clean and tidy. Heaps of fridge space. So close to everything, an amazing stay. Would definitely stay here again.

Insgesamt macht die Herberge einen sehr tristen Eindruck. Dazu kommt, dass das Management nicht den Eindruck macht, dass sie gerne Gäste haben und sehr unfreundlich sind. Morgens um kurz nach 09 Uhr wird durch einen Lautsprecher gebrüllt und man fühlt sich wie beim Militär und nicht auf Reisen! Desweiteren ist die Küche und der Trinkwasserspendr nicht gut gepflegt. Ich habe die Herberge gewechselt!

Other hostels seem to be more pro-active about recycling. I didn’t see any info in my room. Maybe there was something in the dorms (I was in a private room).

Only stopped over one night but was a brilliant location for boats to the Whitsundays - booked from the hostel

The mattresses need replacing, not the best nights sleep I've had in a hostel. The location is really good, at one end of the High Street with good access to restaurants, the beach and the lagoon.
