I loved this hostel. The staff (in particular a blonde lady on reception) were so friendly and helpful, were clearly busy but never felt like a task was too much. Pool was lovely, and the food oh my god was amazing value! Really tasty. Would love to stay here again if I could, best hostel in Australia so far.


Very nice hostel with great chilled out atmosphere. Not a party hostel but a good jumping off point for Fraser Island.


Organised in advance to be picked up by their free shuttle, but were forced to take a $20 taxi from the bus station. Also expressed disappointment in the tour booked through the hostel - gave some objective feedback on checkout, but was reminded they were "the biggest seller of the tour" and we were the first to ever "complain", was pointed at and told "so you're going down." Customer service fail.


Great place to stay. Everything was great except the flies in the kitchen! Little twin room was perfect great price for a twin. Free Internet bonus! Not the fastest but when it's free can't complain too much! Had worse Internet which had to be paid for! Nice and quiet and chilled. Free pick up from bus station was great. Only problem was we were getting the early 6am bus so there was no free drop off that early. So we had to pay for taxi. Staff really friendly

Pretty clean and very nice environment. Supermarket around. Maybe easier to access everything with a car though. Good value for price!


Really nice hostel! Only downside I think is the location. It is far from the other hostels and the ' city centre'. Also far from the bus station, but the hostel always has a shuttlebus at the bus station :-) Don't know if they also do that in the night though. For the rest it is a very good hostel, with good rooms.
