        Stay away!”

        I'm not picky and used to stick to budget accomodation, but what you get in this hostel is definitely not what you pay for: No free wifi, wifi you can buy for 5$/24h doesn't work as well, no common room, no pool, mattresses are uncomfortable and old, staff is the most unfriendly I ever experienced in any hostel on the east coast. Location and the meal vouchers for the bar underneath are absolutely top, but that's it.

        We only stayed here for one night before we went on our whitsundays sailing trip. Good nightlife at this hostel and they give you meal tickets for cheaper meals when you stay here. Big spacious rooms which doesn't usually happen in hostels.

        First class Atmosphere and Welcoming attitude!!”

        clean rooms (cleaned daily), friendly staff, safe and secure feel and finally very cost affective !

        my stay at beaches was first class for back packers accommodation! it was my first time staying in a mixed dorm room and at first the thought of it was unnerving but that feeling was quickly overcome by the welcoming attitude of the the lovely receptionists who took into consideration my personality type when partnering me up with room buddies. i think that is exceptional as they didn't have to do this and is was going out of there way per say. as i was travelling alone i thought stay in back packers accommodation would be better than my normal choice of hotel as it allows my to socialise with people from all over the world, this was in fact the case as i have made a number of friends some that i have met up with after my trip. the room was basic but clean with lining changed after every person and the bathroom mopped etc.which is what you would expect for the price, i think i was extremely lucky as my room as it had a balcony that looked over a small part of airlie beach a view that you would expect from at least a 3/4 star hotel. anyway overall my trip was fabulous and i will recommend staying here to all my family and friends !! thanks
