Decent hostel. A little dingy and the reception is open for only a few hours a day but what can you expect from a budget hostel. They do have a free shuttle to town which is useful.

It was a very good experience all the staff were friendly and always willing and ready to help.
Aloysius, us5 night trip
Very good 8.0
A place for backpackers.
The owner and staff was very friendly and happy. This is a good place for lone backpackers (i'm a bit too comfortable but the price was good) A nice place to meet other travelers. The room was nothing but beds, my bed was really bad but the other two beds in that room was good. Jj's is 2km from the town center but there goes daily free trips in a minibuss forth a back (once every 60min). We used it all the time and i was really good. The bathrooms was ok for that kind of place, sometimes out of paper and sope. No towles. I liked the place even though it was a bit run down. / Anton

Staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful. Great value and location also free shuttle to and from night markets in CBD was a great bonus. Arranged a trip to Green Island to snorkel on the great barrier reef from the hostel and would highly recommend it!
