Dougies

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 4, 2007

Hostel with plenty of camping too, a pool and a large bar.
Another one of those places where you have to pay a deposit for cutlery and plates.
The kitchens were large but got very messy and not all the hobs worked anyway.
Cost us AU$24 per night for a 4 bed dorm, luggage storage in the room it was kind of a complex of huts, not bad.
Large toilet blocks though not enough dry space in the showers.
Good clothes washing/drying facilities.
Reception has a large amount of information and will help you to book tours.
They also do a free pick up from Cairns on certain days.

I didn`t stay here but i spent loads and loads of my free time here using all of there facilities a bit cheeky, i know. It`s a very well looked after Hostel and you have the choice of camping or staying in the dorms.
Theres a swimming pool out the front which gets well used in the hot tropical weather and they have Internet,Sky Tv, own bar(with top notch juke box) and good cooking facilties. I well recomend it and the staff are great. They put on BBQ nights and theres a pool comp every tuesday night in which i won 2 times and lost twice in the final. Good stuff.

Dougies is the only backpacker hostel I could find from the internet providing free pick-up from Cairns (city/airport), no matter how short you stay!!! This really attracted me, as I just planned to stay in Port Douglas for 1 night and this offer really saved me some money!!!

The coach ride was enjoyable as the driver acted as a tour guide, telling us about the history and stories about Port Douglas, plus recommending us special places to visit. On the way we drove pass a river, where we saw a croc lying on the embankment; in order to let everyone see the croc, he made a u-turn and drive back to the spot. How nice!!!
He also stopped at Rex Lookout to let everyone make some pics of the nice view.

At the check-in counter, you've to pay a deposit for a set of cutlery. This was new and interesting for me but I do think this system works.

Unfortunately I was the last one to check-in my room, I was forced to take a lower bunk bed. The beds were designed for kids, though I'm just 166cm in height, I found it difficult accomodating in my bed, I couldn't sit up straight talking with my room-mates at night.

Unique Quality: 1. Wonderful staff - very patient in answering my emails before my arrival.
2. Nice kitchen and eating area - great for meeting people.
3. Clean bathrooms.
4. Free pick-up from Cairns.
5. Lots of travel info.

Yet to be improved:
1. The beds are really too small.
