No free food shelf! Nice double room. More family rather than backpackers

We have a sign in our cupboard for free food, maybe there was no free food available when you stayed with us!! We're definitely not a party hostel and are family owned and operated and our main market is international backpackers.

Great place to stay. The family that run it were never too busy to help you and you always got the impression that they were honest with you about activities and value for money. They have good connections throughout the area in terms of skydives, Fraser Island days etc. I can't speak highly enough of the family that runs it. A basic hostel no bells or whistles just a great chilled out place to be and what you see is what you get!

Me and my partner stayed in a 4 bed dorm, it was just us for the 3 nights we stayed, we found the woolshed so quiet and relaxing, the cleanness was unreliable you could smell how clean the place was, good value for money, would recommend staying here, we defiantly will be staying again :)

The hostel is not in easy walking distance to very much. There is no free shuttle to the bus stop nor is there free luggage storage after check out ($5 pp for both and use of facilities). The outside areas were nice to hang out in.

We are 5 minutes walk to the beach, supermarket, bars and cafes. All transfers are free and need to be prearranged for pick ups and booked at reception the night before departure so we can arrange a driver.If you book a tour through us luggage storage is free and use of facilities after check out is free. If your catching a night bus, haven't booked a tour and want to use our facilities for the day after check out we charge $5. Tours available are Fraser, Whales, Lady Elliot, paddle board, etc

Private rooms seem to be made from cardboard, you hear everything what your neighbours do and it's cold during the night... also no towels. And if you want to use a bathroom uou need to go trough outside yard... anyway, very nice and communicative staff!

Very good hostel, with very nice staff. The hostel was really clean, calm and chill out, just 5 min walk to the beach. You can hire bikes for free to discover the city. You can also enjoy some internet data for free. I recommend this hostel for your stay in Hervey Bay.

Thanks for the comments. I agree, May and June are definitely the quietest months of the year for tourism in Queensland. Here in Hervey Bay it gives us a bit of time to catch our breath, catch up with maintenance etc and get ready for the full on rush of Whale Watch season again come mid July...

This is the best hostel I have been to in Australia! The rooms are nice, cosy and clean. In the well-equipped and tidy kitchen and in the common room there is lots of space and you'll find everything you need. The showers and toilets are superclean and there is nothing to complain about. One of the highlights is the big garden with hammocks and plenty of room to relax and enjoy your day - or night with dinner from the big BBQ.

This has been my absolut favorit spot and hostel in Australia. It was well worth the money, beautiful, peaceful and over all really high standards. The hostel has a really nice courtyard which is a great place to hang out and relax. It is close to the beach but a bit far away from town. Problem solved through cheap bikehire. In addition really friendly and helpful staff.

It`s the best hostel that you can find in all Australia. It`s like been in our own place or your home. The staff was great. The room was wonderful.

We enjoyed our stay here, the authentic woodshed style gives it a nice vibe. Make sure that if you are getting the bus to the main bus station, you arrange your own transport to and from, as the hostel will only give you a transfer if it is at a certain time. The wifi was good and the hammocks very comfortable! Our room was nice, and the showers were big- always a positive!

Super friendly staff greet you when you arrive and remember who you are throughout your stay (and if you come back!). Very clean, great showers (large, good water pressure and hot water). Quite far from the bus station, but a free shuttle is provided to and from to help.
