They confirm one price then charge another, directly to your card without your authorization. Is this not fraud? They want you to wash your own dishes and change your own bed linen. Then why am I paying hotel prices? The breakfast is at a super early inconvenient hour, like 7 to 7:30 a.m. WTF? And it's rubbish. The reason? Well, it's convenient for the management. They do nothing but wander about with their fake breasts groping each other (it's a couple -- get a room, one of your own preferably), bitching about other guests and hardselling their sh*tty boat trips where you get bedbugs. They are located off the main drag so one good thing is that you don't hear the din at night. But then you also have to wait for hourly intervals to get home on their bus. And if it's full, it's your tough shite. Plus past 8 p.m., you have to get a cab. All in all, an embarrassment. Not sure what the management do. I am disappointed in the guide book for having recommended. Don't go there.
Good hostel for some peace and quite
This hostel is very different from the all other in Airlie beach in many ways. At first, personality. You feel welcome and everyone is friendly, even the staff. Second, it's quite and relaxing. Not for party hard people even if there is many people sharing a beer in the evenings and taking the shuttle to Magnums or Beaches some nights. The pool is clean and the spa is amazing! Breakfast is hotel-standard with fresh muffins! Bad things is the distance to Airlie beach and the rooms are a bit run down. There is no movie-projector as shown in the pictures, just a very tiny old TV. Internet is expensive, 6 dollar per hour! Also aircondition cost money but not much. Different ages and high rate natives staying there makes it interesting for the traveler to get tips about things to do and see in Australia. Different birds, wallabies, and kangaroos can be spotted in the garden. Could have been the perfect hostel if a little more work in fixing broken and rundown things was done.
Very average
Hostel far from Airlie beach but there are many Free shuttles. cabins are ok but the management is just looking for money. I have been charged three nights and stayed two over xmas. you must insert coin to get air conditioning for two hours! unbelievable. the photos you may have seen don't represent at all the reality -- forget the spa! the breakfast is average and milk out of date! there is no ambiance at all, it is just a quiet place to rest up -- forget parties.
  This is not a Hostel, this is a resort! We stood in a four-bed bungalow. Own kitchen, TV, terrasse, garden. Quiet and clean. Everybody friendly, there for you at every time. Breakfast in the garden, fresh fruits, and self-baked muffins. A family-feeling! Free buses to Airlie all over the day, but also a nice walk. If you don't want to stay directly at the party-area in Airlie -- this is your perfect destination!
  Great hostel -- best in Airlie Beach. Friendly caring staff, the best quality hostel rooms i experienced in a year of backpacking around Oz.
  Excellent Hostel! I have stayed in Hostels all over Australia and this hostel is by far the best. In 2003 i stayed at bush village for three months, had the time of my life and never wanted to leave. recently when i returned to Oz for a months holiday i once again stayed at bushies. since my last visit all of the cabins have been updated (by far the best rooms in an Oz Hostel), there is now a new giant screen TV in the lounge showing movies by request and the staff are more friendly than ever. If you visit Airlie and would like to stay somewhere nice rather than wallowing in your own (and other people's) puke somewhere else, then stay at Bush Village!

  Really great place. Nice and clean, staff really friendly and helped us a lot. Great free breakfast and shuttle bus into town regular. Very clued up on trips and helped us out when we needed to change a booking date for our trip.

  Excellent place! If you're looking to get away from the drunken party that is Airlie Beach this is the place to be. Only a 15 minute walk from marina / town -- or frequent free courtesy buses. Free pick up & drop off to station. Clean, big rooms, spotless kitchen, friendly helpful staff, genuinely fantastic free breakfast -- only served 7.30-8.30 (But you can always go back to bed!). Swimming pool, TV room with projector screen, 8pm nightly movies, 5 min walk to Coles / ATM / Pharmacy / Bakery. Quiet location. These guys have got it spot on!!
