I stayed 4 nights in this "tropical" backpackers resort, a great basecamp for daytrips to the Daintree and Cape Trib and the Great Barrier.
Dougies has a lively (sometimes too lively) bar at nights, a lovey garden with hammocks and a swimming pool, and a camping area.
I stayed at a dormitory of 6 (26$ the night) and slept really well, no noises (in spite of the night partys). The staff was really helpful and helped me plan my trips around. The toilets & showers were nice & clean and I was really satisfied of staying there.

Unique Qualities: The only contra is the location, a bit too far from the centre (about 15 minutes walking).

Price Comparison: least expensive
Price: US$40-80
Theme: Hostel

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
