    Very good hostel! I stayed There for 8 nights and i enjoyed it a lot! Bathroom is in the Room, room was big enough for 6 people and the terrace was amazing! Definitely a good hostel. One negative point though: the entrance is always open so anyone can come in the courtyard! Otherwise all good!

    Rooms are not exactly big (at least not the one we stood in) and not too cozy, but clean, and the staff we were in contact with was very helpful and friendly. The YHA is well-equipped (kitchen etc) and well-located.

    Good location and staff are really friendly. It's quite a basic hostel with dated decor but not in a bad way. It's good for the money.

    Noisey til about 10.30pm as all rooms have patios looking on to court yard. Great staff, we're so helpful. Super clean kitchen.

    Staff were great - very friendly and helpful. I accidentally paid an adult fare for a cruise instead of a concession fare. When I went in the staff member cheerfully refunded the overpayment. Thank you.

    Nice hostel for a night before going on a ship. Staff is very friendly and helpful. You can safely store your luggage for more than one day just for 5 Dollars. Is you just want to store it for your arrival or check out day it's for free. Rooms are big and you have a great big locker and every dorm has its own bathroom.

    Airlie Beach ist ein sehr kleines, aber lebhaftes Städtchen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Es bietet tolle Ausflüge zu den Whitsunday Islands.

    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.
