Backpackers by the Bay was the perfect place to end our stay in the Whitsundays. Peter and Hannah were super friendly and helpful, making us feel right at home. The systems work really well, with bathrooms and kitchen super clean, lots of amenities that helped us with rinsing our camping gear, relaxing hammocks. And remarkably quiet for a place with so many younger guests. A great stay and the best introduction to a hostel that our young daughters could have!
