Chilled out backpackers with good facilities and cheap drinks. There is a nice pool to relax by in the heat if you do not fancy the walk to the lagoon and there is air con in the rooms. Expect to pay around 29 dollars a night for a room though, which is not the cheapest around.

Great location, adequate rooms Apr 23, 2009
I stayed two nights in a six bed dorm and then another two in a private room. The private room was alright and had its own bathroom.

The good: Great location, nice pool and bar area outside on the second floor. The hostel was busy and full of young backpackers from all around. Great nightlife.

The bad: Because of the pool and shared bathrooms, the tile floors were always wet and dirty. The nights were loud for anyone who may want peace and quiet instead of a constant party. There was a room with lockers, however, the lockers were small and could not fit anything more than a small bag.

*** I talked to a guy who had his luggage stolen there. He just checked in and took one of his bags up to the second floor and left another one downstairs. When he returned it was gone and he just flew in from Europe. It had his passport, money and everything else important. The cops were called but i had doubt that he would see his stuff again. So don't make his mistake when checking in.

Cheap place, good location Jan 20, 2009
A bare-bones backpackers hostel, the Melaleuca on Mitchell is at least fairly cheap, clean and in a great location on Mitchell street near all the tourist facilities. That is probably as much as I can say in its favour though. The internet services are pretty poor (walk down the street to Global Connect for more services at the same price- $1/15 minutes), other facilities almost don't exist and the rooms are really noisy at night as the hotel borders the popular nightclub The Tap and is very poorly insulted from the noise. Perhaps my mood wasn't improved by having to wake up and leave at 1am thanks to someone setting off a fire-alarm by smoking in their room. For people wanting to live the late-night backpacker's life it is probably perfect, and for us (wanting something cheap, central and clean) it was fine, but it isn't the place for someone who plans on spending any length of time in their room attempting to relax.
