    Our deluxe room was the best, worth a 5* hotel: very spacious, comfortable king bed, TV & DVD, fridge, tea & coffee, lockable cabinets, direct access to rear garden, front parking, 15 min walk from shops and marina. The kitchen, swimming pool and shared areas (with pool table) were lovely too. We loved it and we will definitely stay there next time we go to Port Douglas.

    People: Tom and Kasia are so lovely and I can't wait to go back to this hostel. They gave me so many wonderful recommendations for things to do in the area - swimming and snorkeling in the river and hiking to waterfalls. They know all the fun things that are going on and they're always happy to make recommendations. Rooms: The rooms are fantastic, with large storage areas that are lockable. They are clean and a comfortable space for 4 people. The bathroom was fantastic. Space: The lounge areas are clean and comfortable and it's easy to find space to sit on your own or hang out in a group. Bonus: Towels provided!

    Hotel was great but in a dorm room don't expect courtesy from other roomies. I haven't stayed in hostel accomodation before now I know why. But hey it wasn't anything the staff could do about that. Young rude disrespectful tourists.

    They've nailed what a hostel should be. Clean, well maintained, friendly staff, great relaxing areas, good value. Best yha so far by miles.

    This hostel is one of the best I've ever stayed in. It's in a great location - a short walk to the shops and marina, and a couple of minutes from the beach. It's very clean and there are lots of different spaces to relax if you feel like some time to yourself. The rooms have their own bathrooms, a fridge and big lockers which fit suitcases/packs. The pool is great. The staff are very helpful in organising tours for you.

    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.
