The hostel is the cleanest place to stay in Queens land. Their are free reef trips on the owners marlin boat weather permitting. An million dollar view of the river and 5 minute walk to coles and free internet at the library which is 50 metres away.

I stayed here with my boyfriend from September until mid December and it was as much fun as a kick in the balls. When we first arrived there was a great group of people and the manager was decent. However this did not last, along came the new manager and that was the beginning of the end. When she arrived... More

Their website said they had internet but they didn't. It was all very unmaintained - half the stuff in the kitchen was broken, cupboards stank and were full of bugs, the sinks were full of dirty washing, the shower floor was sticky, there were buckets of dirty water the whole week we were there. Really not for us, but the... More

We were traveling South to Townsville and stayed here for an over night stop to break up the drive. Big mistake. Pillows, mattresses and rooms were dirty. Reception staff seemed clueless and didn't want to give us a room key because we were only staying one night! We were glad to leave!

We decided to go backpacking in australia and to do some farm work, we ended up in Innisfail due to the huge amounts of banana farms, Codge Lodge is probably one of the cleaner options of hostels in Innisfail, but it seriously needs a lot of work, the bunk beds are so squeaky and loud you spend all night awake...
