    Amazing, simply amazing! Very cool quite location, spacious room with private bathroom. Our room had glass door opening to the garden. Kitchen is clean, pool looks nice. A lot of outdoor space to sit and socialize. Staff is super friendly and always helpful. Great location as well, very close to the beach. There is a colony of fruit bats just 30 meters from the hostel in the park - super cute furry flying mamals. A frog came one evening to the open area. Magnificent!

    This hostel has been the best experience of my life! Everything was clean and it was so beautiful! The staff was so friendly and have helped me a lot! It became my home away from home! Thank you especially to Tom and Kevin! I would recommend this place to everyone that is in the area!

    This is by far the best hostel I've stayed in. An easy going and welcoming atmosphere made my stay most enjoyable! The staff are friendly and helpful, especially Tom who with much understanding and the odd joke or two runs a terrific hostel. Some may bemoan the condition of the facilities, but that is simply irrelevant for a hostel, especially one which is kept as clean and tidy as this one. The location is brilliant, only minutes away from the beach and a short walk away from the shops.

    Friendly and helpful staff, good facilities (even a hand blender in the kitchen) and clean rooms. Just a bit crowded in the 5 bed dorm. But I appreciated the large lockers.

    It was more than great! The hostel is incredibly clean, the outdoor facilities give you a lot of space to chill out and do whatever you want to (pool, table tennis, tv, a lot of lounges...). The staff were just perfect, figured out everything, they are so friendly and know a lot of cool things to do in the area (thak you Kasia for booking the best tours for me!). I was really sad to leave... I hope I will see you guys again!

    Great setup and experience provided, I would highly recommend it as ideal budget accommodation for anyone. This was my first experience of staying in a hostel and I was very pleasantly surprised. YHA had a great vibe, everyone from the staff to the other tenants were extremely friendly and helpful. I was amazed at everything it had to offer; undercover parking, a bistro & bar w, outdoor swimming pool, sun lounges, table tennis table, a pool table with tv and music, outdoor seating, laundry, communal kitchen and tv room. The reception offered warm blankets towels, aloe Vera, insect repellent and detailed information about everything there is to experience from Port Douglas through to Cairns.

    Great location, as walking distance to beach and main shopping street. Nice walk along the marina from hostel. Staff were friendly and helpful in booking tours. Nice communal areas to eat, work, play and watch TV. Wifi was free with secure codes given, rather than a general use code for everyone. Definitely recommend staying here.

    We had a brilliant time in Port Douglas, which the YHA really contributed to, the staff were really helpful in letting us know what was available and making it happen. The hostel itself has a really fresh feeling about it, the kitchen was great and really clean. I'm sure I'll be back.

    Loved the backpackers it really felt like we we staying in a four star resort. I have never had free Wi-fi and TV in the room before. Thus is the best backpackers I have ever stayed in.

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
