Good communal kitchen, very well maintained. Excellent location, quiet, central to everything in town, including beach, shops and restaurants. Very friendly, knowledgeable & helpful Reception staff. Jules and Alana, our special favourites! Thanks for all your wonderful travel tips ladies – we thoroughly enjoyed them all! Definitely recommended”.

“This is a great place to stay. It is very central and has lovely staff. It has basic, clean rooms that make you feel like you’re waking up in the rainforest. The kitchen is also clean and well-equipped. 


Trip Advisor 06/07/2020

“Absolutely love this place. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the location feels like a summer camp in the jungle. A beautiful creek runs through the middle of a bunch of cabins style dorms and it is properly amazing… Wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Airlie after staying here twice”.
