I had such an incredible time, and the X Base Magnetic hostel was a big part of that. Younger crowd, lots of friendly people from all over the world travelling through, island bar with great parties nightly, and located on the beach/ocean in Nelly Bay. Conditions are extremely lacking in rooms (basically run-down shacks for housing luggage, equipment, etc.), but who wants to stay in their room at a place like this? Not ideal if you're looking for a clean, ritzy establishment. But if you just want to hang out on an island and party for a few days, it's perfect.

Very friendly helpful staff, 2 very clean, well set up kitchen and relaxation areas. Our tent was clean, beds comfy, power available......everything we needed for a budget stay. An echidna came nosing around the garden in front of our tent and a mother possum with baby on its back came to the kitchen area in the evening - delightful. Only one shared toilet and one shower which could have been an issue but it caused us no problem.
