Hello all!
Does anyone know of any good and reasonably priced hostels anywhere up the east coast of Australia. I'm travelling from Melbourne up to Cairns and any advice of things to do/ hostels to stay in would be much appreciated!

Thank you all you lovely peeps! X

Cairns i stayed at calypso-first impressions were that it ws a dump then when i stayed there a night later it was kool, it seems very varied depending on where you get placed. If i was only there for a couple of nights i would stay there.

Holiday Inn is a must in Byron Bay.

Maze backpackers at magnetic island-brill place to be!

Koalas at Airlie-also very good.

Argh..can't think, lol!

Hi

We stayed in Airlie beach for a couple of months and I would not reccomend Koalas, When we were there people were complaining of bed bugs and the overall feel and look of the place felt like it needed a good overhall.

we stayed in a place called Bush Village which we found to be one of the best hostels we have stayed in since travelling Oz. the free breakfast which is part of the room rate was fantastic, its only a small hostel which is family owned, which has a great feel of home about the place, all rooms are spotless and attention to cleanliness is first rate. I have attatched the web address so you can have a look .

Happy travelling

I stayed in Koalas and thought it was just fine. It's definitely the most popular place in town for backpackers! Having just run through your posts Alan, I find that they are all about this one particular hostel.... You wouldn't have some kind of association with it that you are concealing now would you???
