      Not bad. The first 2 nights I was in a 10 bed mixed dorm. Third night (after my sailing trip) I was in an 8 bed female dorm which was much bigger and brighter with an ocean view, but same price as the previous dorm. Full of Europeans. Europeans with tans. Very echoey stairwells and you can always hear the door slamming. Friendly staff.

      Extremely friendly staff and lovely people in my dorm. The hostel was right on the water - aptly named - and even had a roof terrace

      Overall I was really happy with my stay at this hostel. Reception was exceptionally accommodating when I wanted to change rooms, store luggage and book a tour. AND you get a free nights stay by booking thru them!

      Australia Day!

      A travel blog entry by richandmarkinoz on Jan 26, 2015

      Australia Day saw us getting the Greyhound down from Townsville to Airlie Beach, the town we would commence our Whitsundays trip from.

      Our Whitsundays tour included accommodation the night before and the night after our trip - however they had cleverly managed to forget to book us into a hostel, so we ended up with a last minute booking in …

      A travel blog entry by chinaski on Nov 06, 2014

      Airlie Beach is a beach town, a must for youngsters who are looking for party, booz, beach and noise. Full of hotels, hostels and restaurants. The town has a lagoon next to the beach. The lagoon is stinger free!

      Take a day to tour around the town and relax at the beach, the lagoon and do some shopping.
      The next day it's almost …

      Whitsundays Coast

      The Whisundays Coast, a Paradise between Brisbane and Cairns. You can find quite cheap flights from Brisbane with JetStar airlines. There are two airports: Proserpine and Hamilton Island. If you have a small Budget better stay at Airlie Beach, a crowded party town where you can find cheap accomodation (lots of hostels), fast food restaurants and …

      Whitsundays: waar het aardse leven het paradijs overtreft!

      Na een lange nachtrit met de ons inmiddels zo vertrouwde Greyhound, zijn we in de vroege uurtjes van de ochtend aangekomen in Airlie Beach. Bij aankomst wachtte ons een minder fijne verrassing: we waren 'vergeten' een hostel te boeken! Waar oh waar moesten we nu naartoe?! Aangezien …

      The Whitsundays conjure up images of platinum beaches and crystal clear water. Any trip to these islands should not disappoint.

      I had arranged a two tank dive trip to head out from Airlie beach with a stop over at Whitehaven Beach. As we land at Whitsunday Island we make our way to shore and we clamber over the top. No boats are …
