    It's a nice hostel, directly located at the beach, Only problem is that it's a bit of a walk away from restaurants and bars... But there is a free shuttle service provided by the bars/pubs to get you home!

    Great hostel in a magic location! I loved exploring Straddie, and Manta Lodge is the perfect place to stay.

    It is wonderful that the YHA is just steps away from the beach. Staff were very friendly. Great place for a getaway from the busy city life.

    Manta Lodge is the perfect base for visitors to explore Stradbroke Island from. Great location, bus stops right at the door, food outlets nearby, helpful staff & so close to the beach that you can hear the surf! A great get-away spot.

    It's a lovely place for backpacker. I was staying at the time the owner brought some oranges from his farm for us to try.
