Aussie Woolshed is a really calm and beautiful place to stay. Hervey Bay may not be the most happening place, but the beach is beautiful (amazing weather around July!) and Hoolihans is a fun place to grab a drink. The rooms are spread out into three different buildings, with really clean bathrooms and laundry close by. I had no problems with bugs and only saw two possums (so cute!) Megan and Brent are incredibly friendly and I am really glad I chose to stay here!

Amazing hostel! One of the best vibes I've ever come across in my travels. It's like your own tropical oasis in a relaxed beachside town. Easy walk to a clean, beautiful beach. Facilities were immaculate, beds were comfortable and the owners - Brent and Megan - were super helpful and friendly. I definitely recommend this place!
Ended up staying at The Woolshed for more than 1 night just because of how good it was! Family owned & run, the staff are very friendly & pleasant to be around & nothing is any trouble. They have great knowledge, offering sound advice on Fraser Island & which tours are best. The hostel has plenty of grounds to relax in, it can feel like a home away from home.!The showers, kitchen, lounge & all rooms are cleaned thoroughly (communal areas daily) & you have facilities to do laundry and hire bikes.
Very nice hostel with unique garden features. Hammocks were awesome! I stayed in a second floor room and became ill during the night, so the walk down the stairs and across the garden to the restroom was a difficult as I became weak and spent that day in bed. That said, the hostel took good care of us, and went out of their way to inquire whether our tour company might refund our tickets to Frasier island after I was too unwell to attend. Would recommend to a friend!
cute little hostel with a good feel about it and friendly knowledgeable staff. tropical gardens ideal to relax in before and after a trip to fraser island (which is possibly one of the best things ive done in aus!) dont need a party hostel, hervey bay isnt exactly a party town..maybe consider locks on main gate, but otherwise this is one of the best hostels ive stayed in in Australia. Thanks!!
There were lots of insects in the hostel. Mainly ants. Probably as it is a wooden building.
Great place, nice rooms and the staff is just amazing!
I had a wonderful stay in the Woolshed. Staff are super friendly and helpful. I stayed in the double en-suite room and it was very comfortable. I loved the communal areas, really lovely kitchen/sitting room and great outdoor area with hammocks. Not a party hostel, but great for a chilled out, homely vibe. Easy walk to the seafront, and you can use the hostel across the road's shuttle service for the bus pickup/dropoff.
