Friendly staff and very good service
everything was excellent. we did the night walk and it was great. everything was clean and in good conditions. the food was also delicious. I would go back at any time.
Haven in the rainforest. No TV, no WiFi limited mobile access, wonderful! Steve&Sally are great hosts, great food, good ambiance in the bar. Night walk with Possum great fun and the Schnapper Island kayak something to remember. A place to really relax.
Loved this place
This place is so nice, everybody is warm and friendly. Just love the vibe. Of course, location is great ... beach is only few mins away.
The best accommodation in Australia
Friendly staff, scary forest seen from the orange rope walk, useful library on natural history, plenty of board games -- we got an Aussie dictionary when we borrowed the Scrabble! The beach is quiet and beautiful amid the mangroves, and when the birds flying through the dining room, and the forest trying to get in under the awnings and the cicadas making a racket get too much, then just soak in the pool and admire this tropical paradise (before coming out for the good food!).
If you, like us, are intending to arrive by bus, you need to know that the bus to the beach has not been running for a couple of years now -- most visitors come by car these days, we were told. Also the local shop has closed down, although a few food items are sold on site. The cooked meals are reasonable value though, at $12 for the main meal. The Snapper Island kayak trip was fun, despite bad weather, but can be canceled at short notice, leaving not much to do if you are without transport. The pool is rather rundown -- hardly anyone used it while we were there.
This is a very amazing hostel and the staff are very friendly. The location is superb -- deep in the Daintree -- down the road from one of the most picturesque beaches in the world. I keep coming back every year because of the beauty of the area. I did the bike hire and went all the way to Cape Tribulation -- stopping at an amazing lagoon down the road as well as the ice cream shop. I also did the sea kayaking to Snapper Island which has amazing coral. So you can relax from the partying in Cairns or do the physical stuff. Must say though that annoyingly the bush pigs have destroyed the rainforest around the area.
Very rustic! I enjoyed staying here for three or so nights. The main entertainment was playing the board games borrowed form reception. An experience -- though not a very high-tech one.
This is a shed in the rainforest with the cassowaries and lizards. There's a free bus to the beach, and an entertaining night walk by Possum, a nice scary walk in the dark to the local pub. A bit boring after a couple of nights, very YHA orientated. No TV or video, plenty of people reading books. It's a nice place nonetheless.
