Manta Lodge & Scuba Centre YHA hostel on beautiful North Stradbroke Island is the perfect place to relax and escape. Enjoy the beauty of our amazing island paradise in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, where you can meet new friends and catch up with old ones.

Popular with backpackers and divers from all over the world, we offer comfortable dorm-style and private accommodation right on the beach at Point Lookout.


We are a 3½ star YHA lodge providing clean and comfortable backpacker accommodation for up to 60 guests.

Our female, male and mixed share dorms range between four (4) and eight (8) beds per room. Private rooms are available as single, double/twin, or triple share. We also have two family rooms that sleep up to five people. Freshly laundered bed linen and blankets are provided in all rooms. Towels are provided in private rooms and are available to hire for a small fee for other guests. Shared bathroom facilities are located on each floor.  Reverse Cycle Air conditioning is available in all accommodation rooms to keep the temperature perfect throughout summer and winter.

We also have a fully-equipped communal commercial kitchen (perfect for cooking up a storm with new friends!) as well as a casual dining room, common room, and chill out TV room for when you want to kick back and relax. Make sure you take a selfie in front of our new, custom-painted mural on the Chill Out Room wall to show all your friends just how much fun you're having!

Don’t forget to check out our outdoor BBQ and dining spaces for when you want something casual. And when you're done, wander down to our island-style firepit area out the back, complete with hammock, benches and the sound of the ocean – the perfect spot to play your guitar, mingle with other guests, and watch the stars at night!

Our friendly and helpful staff are excited to welcome you and are here to make your stay one to remember, so don’t hesitate to pop down to reception and ask any questions.
