    The staff were very lovely, they were very helpful and friendly when I came back from my Whitsunday trip, they let me have a shower, free of charge, even though I wasn't staying at backpackers by the bay, that night ... Peter the owner is lovely, helpful and kind too ... this backpackers is located virtually opposite where the Premiere and the greyhound bus stops, to pick up and drop off passengers

    The location was perfect to walk to town and across the road from the marina. Staff were so friendly and really helpful especially Peter who gave me some great recommendations on what to do with my day around the beach. Dorm was nice and cosy, plenty of room and the bathrooms were always kept clean. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and great to just sit out and relax in the evening.

    There was no railing on the top bunk

    Close to town but far enough away. It was only a 5 minute walk to the port / bus transit terminal.

    I liked everything about this property

    The staff were wonderfully friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The location was great, with a view. There were lots of places to enjoy company or be alone.

    One of the stoves needs upgrading, as was very slow to heat up.

    Such a beautiful location! Very friendly guests and staff, quiet and relaxing yet still enough space to have fun.
