Airlie Beach YHA Hostel Reviews

Rude & disrespectful staff accused me of stealing

Terrible rude and unfriendly staff. The manager-on-duty accused me of stealing from the free food section and threatened to call the police. When I told him to review the cameras they claimed to have to prove to themselves that I in-fact took MY OWN grocery bag, he started making up excuses I couldn't understand, never apologized and just kept going around in circles. Don't stay here unless you want to end up in jail being falsely accused during your vacation. Do yourself a favor and stay at base backpackers or magnums, friendly staff with integrity, respect and common sense. This hostel does not live up to the values of a traditional YHA, this is an imposter hostel!

Staff were pretty unfriendly, and I didnt appreciate dried blood on my "clean" sheets. Location is good but that's about it.



Clean, good location, helpful staff, big kitchen, and not too far to walk from the Greyhound stop!



Decent hostel -- clean rooms, balcony, nice kitchen, helpful staff, well situated, swimming pool, decent showers.


Actually really good

The 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. office hours and check in only at 12 p.m. rule is a little annoying, especially if you were on the northbound Greyhound and just got into Airlie at 6 a.m. after a terrible night sleep on the bus. But once you check in, the place is quiet, each room has its own bathroom, and there are only six beds to a room. therefore sometimes it means having to share the bathroom with just one other person! The bed's pretty good and no bedbugs, which is an epidemic in Airlie i heard. there are cupboards where you can put your stuff and lock them, if you have a lock. Quite a lot of clothesline around too so drying stuff is pretty easy. Best of all, the internet is pretty cheap, 3.50 an hour which is decent compared to the $1 per ten minutes one finds down south. The kitchen is perfect, everything needed is there, and the TV room is rather cosy. The pool looks great, I didn't swim though because i kinda got enough of it at the Whitsundays. Overall, if you are here just for the Whitsunday Islands resting, relaxing, and not really for the parties, YHA is the place to stay at.


pretty clean, nice rooms, and more quiet than the other hostels in Airlie. Nice and well equipped kitchen.


What a joy this hostel is. Located about two hundred to three hundred metres from the Greyhound dropoff (to find it, walk from the bustop and take your first left up a little hill, at the junction, take a right -- it's right there). The hostel is immaculately clean. The rooms large and spacious. Each dorm having it's own ensuite bathroom, air-conditioning and if you're lucky -- a balcony. I had a dorm to myself for two days! Theres's a pool which is cleaned daily. The kitchens are very clean. TV room could do with being opened until a little later (ten p.m.). There's one internet terminal -- $3.50 an hour. Pretty damn good.


Clean, reasonably priced and central!
