Great hostel with free transfers to Cairns

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 5, 2008

Port Douglas has grown extensively in the last years. Most of the growth is due to tourists in the upper economic brackets. Port Douglas has become a destination for those looking to get a quiet stay in a quality resort.

However, for those on a budget who still wish to get see the wonders of NW QLD, Port O Call is a good place. Arguably the same facilities as Dougies, it does have the benefit of being part of the YHA.

The rooms are very clean, the bunks were quite comfortable. The kitchen facilities are very good too. Rooms had fans and AirCon. Kitchen goods, blankets, towels, etc. are all available from the reception with a refundable cash deposit.

Unique Quality: Kitchen, pool, TV room, billiard table, laundry, bicycles, internet, and possibly the best value restaurant (see my other tip).

It might not seem that important, but the rooms here had plenty of table space and electrical outlets. Many other hostels do not have table space and all roommates must share one electric plug. Our rooms had at least 2 plugs per roommate.

About 5 minutes walk from Four Mile beach.

Directions: Corner of Mudlo Street, Port Street and Craven Close.
About 10 minute walk south of center and/or marina.

Unique Quality: I tried out just about all the pools everywhere we went in Queensland, and this one was one of the best of all - especially for the quaint little wooden bridge, and the fact that it was floodlit at night when I was swimming from above and below the water, which was really pretty.

Unique Quality: No 1 for me was the Pool...the restaurant/courtyard bar area right beside it also looked great, but I was too busy in the pool to check them out!

Port Douglas, unlike all the other holiday cities and towns in the area, doesn't have a wealth of backpackers to choose from (only about 3) and by the time we arrived this one was almost booked out, so we just took what we could get, which was
a dorm room in The Bunkhouse out back.

Unique Quality: The room had ceiling fan only, which was a bit of a problem. Dorm cost $20 ea (cheap by most standards but not compared to what we normally got for $20 - our own room!)
The sheets were rather threadbare and I almost give this place the tie for lumpiest pillow award.
BUT: it did also get Best resort pool award for me

(with even frogs pool side - not the notorius cane toads - and wooden bridge over floodlit pool).
