          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!

          Probably aided by a hangover and late checkout time, we have designated today as an exploratory day of Airlie town, and don't make it out for much of the morning. We begin by walking around town, which being so small doesn't take long to figure out where to grab a coffee and cake. We enjoy the Coastal Boardwalk heading North, and loop it back …

          I find myself out of breath in the back of a very small hatchback. No not what your thinking.

          I've acquired a lift south but it turns out I've barely time to pack my stuff, let alone say my goodbyes to The Goonies and Co. I wrestle my bags away from the clutches of the bedroom Huntsman spider and bolt for the door. I'm ridesharing with a …
