      Really great hostel, it's pretty hippy. The kitchen is quite small but there is a lot of outside eating area. There a nice pool and garden are to chill out.

      Not too bad

      The cooking facilities are quite good here - I was impressed with the gas hobs and the open plan layout makes it seem really sociable at first. The kitchen does however get dirty pretty quickly and there doesn't seem to be any staff to keep on top of it. I often found myself having to wash things up before I could use them (once I had found the item!) and struggled to find a clean, dry tea towel. I never had to queue for a shower or toilet. Staff are friendly but guests were very cliquey. The no smoking areas weren't enforced. Internet access and wifi is not free. Reception & the shop close pretty early. 30 min walk to town, 10 min walk to beach.
      This is only the 2nd hostel I've stayed in so don't have much to compare it to but these standards were nowhere near as high as my last hostel.

      It's a small town full of shops and restaurants, with lots of accomodation for all budgets. You even have a mall with a Coles supermarket.

      As our tour doesn't pick us up until the afternoon, we had the morning free so we walked along Mayall beach and then to cape tribulation beach. Cape Tribulation beach was nice and long but there was signs saying don't go in because of crocs.

      When we got picked up we went to Alexandra lookout which was lovely. You got to see an amazing view …

      ... road hopping all over the place. One observation I have made about Australia is that they treat their people well. They dont charge for you to use public facilities like the lagoons, people respect the land they live on and are polite and friendly to us tourists. You can actually make friends and not worry too much about them being odd bods. London is the complete opposite of that, nothing is for free and we lack that kind of community spirit.
