    Staff very helpful.Good location
    John H June 2015
    Very nice (and cheap) double room. Friendly Staff. Share toilet and shower with only one another room which was unexpecting. Totally worth it!
    Siyu Y June 2015
    Very good services of every staff, very helpful to us and kept patient as we asked lots of questions about local tour.

    Great staff, friendly, helpful and efficient. Cleanest backpackers kitchen I have yet encountered in Australia.

    Basic but clean. Lockers good for security but bring your own padlock. Kitchen was very good. Charge for a bath towel and printing which many other hostels we've stayed at provide for free. Staff were very rude who would ignore you or chat amongst themselves until they could not ignore you any longer and would flap around with lots of pieces of paper getting into a state with just one person in reception wanting to extend for one night. Not complicated. This happened multiple times. The hostel has no real atmosphere but provided an ok base for pre and post whitsundays trip.

    YHA Airlie is the perfect place to stay. Excellent facilities including a pool, free WiFi, kitchen and TV lounge. Location is where you want to be.

    Nikki W April 2015
    Extremely helpful reception staff, happy to assist with all manner of bookings and enquiries. My room was very clean and tidy, and I intend to return for another visit as soon as possible.

    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.
