The air conditioning in the dorm room was much too cool and could not be controlled or stopped, which made everyone cold and angry. What a pity . And to get a blanket you needed a 10$/bed deposit... Should be included.

Nice hostel, with a chilled-out vibe and access to a beautiful quiet beach, plus they run a shuttle bus to the main part of Noosa at Noosa Junction and also the main beach there. Only small gripe is the charge for leaving your bags and remaining on the premises after checking out (only five or ten dollars though) - first hostel in Aus to charge for it and it seems unnecessary if you'll only be there for a couple of hours past check-out.

Nice place to be. Friendly and helpful staff. Colorful Building with buddhistic atmosphere. It's not a "party hostel", it's a quiet one. The kitchen and the toilets could be a bit cleaner. There are also no lockers, but I never felt unsafe. The national park was just 5 minutes away and there was a shuttle to the Bus junction and to the main beach.

Disappointed. The room is only enough for a bed. No table no chair. AU95 for a double room with shared bathroom is not a reasonable price. It's more expensive than their own website. 2% charge even for debit card, I am wondering why. They don't have a proper bathroom. It's within the toilet but I can not find any place to put my towel or clothes inside the toilet. It turns out our neighbour don't really care their strict no drink after 7PM rule.

Staff are the worst i have come across, extremly rude and useless. Think its acceptable to climb through bedroom window over beds, play music load at 7am chuck everything around when cleaning in the morning. Cockroaches everywhere and smelly bathroom, horrible stay and wouldnt recommend

Very basic, average hostel, but: really really restricted about everything. The day of check out you have to leave the hostel at 10, or they charge you $5. Lots of angry signs about being quiet, clean, and safe. Also: no alcohol after 7pm and NO GOON. It's just 5 minutes to Sunshine Beach, but the Main Beach is a 45 minute walk.

Funky hostel with a good vibe, best showers in Australia! Rooms are a little cramped if they are full. Compared to other hostels they are pricey for what you get - however it is average in Noosa

It is a very nice hostel but a little bit far away from the main beach. You have to get a local bus or a shuttle bus from the hostel to go there. The hostel has many rules as well. Never saw that many rules in a hostel. But all in all the hostel has a very nice atmosphere, is clean and the staff is friendly.

Small smelly rooms, far away from main beach and Noosa Junction, dirty toilets, no lockers, rooms never locked

A nice looking hostel but staff didn't seem to want to be there and long stay (working) residents watched movies in the dorm without headphones til 2am and then again at 7am before work, along with shouting at each other to get up etc. Also had free surfboard hire when we booked, but changed this policy before we arrived and wouldn't honour it. Annoying as that was why we booked this hostel over others!

Very clean hostel with lots of kitchen space! Unfortunately the hostel was very far out and as the free shuttle caters for the incoming greyhound service, the last shuttle is at 4-5ish in the afternoon. In addition, there are signs everywhere telling you what you can't do (including what times you can hang out washing!) I felt unwelcome and although I didn't pay it, signs remind you to pay $5 if you want to use the facilities after check-out. Staff were blunt (Apart from Ben. He was awesome)

The aircon kept the rooms sooo cold at nights that it would wake u up, the room was tiny, nowhere to put your bags, the locks on the doors were a joke. The staff were alright, one girl came across pretty rude though. The british surfer guy, so hot, keep him!

Stayed only one night, nice enough hostel. Only downside was the aircon. Was there on a pretty cool day already and no way to manually change the settings. The room was like a fridge all night long, ended up sleeping on the couch in the lounge. Overall quite good though, not a party place, but a friendly atmosphere

Unfortunately this is the only hostel I have not enjoyed my stay. staff were unwelcomming. nobody said hello at the shuttle and when I asked for info where to go to go kayaking I was told she doesnt know and to look at google maps.staff didnt seem bothered about being friendly with anyone else. items were stolen stolen. I thought it was bad that u have to leave the premises when u check out. All other hostels let u stay until your bus for free.

The double room was very basic. It had 2 plug sockets, a tv that was at an awkward angle to watch and had terrible signal and air conditioning that we made good use of and was excellent! The wifi was very good here however the private double rooms are just out of range, which was annoying so you had to go to the common area. The bathroom we shared has a clear glass window that looks onto a wall which was a bit unnerving, but was fine. All in all a good stay :)

I didnt like this hostel. You cant have hot showers during the day, and the rooms are way too small so they get smelly and dirty. not to mention that all people leave the doors to the rooms open so there is absolute lack of security. In the morning the music wakes you up at 08.00 and it get noisy. I was glad to leave this hostel.

This hostel is a little outside town but they run a shuttle bus about once every hour to the transit centre. Most people in this hostel didn't lock their rooms and reception don't have a luggage room to store your luggage if you have a later bus, however I didn't personally feel it was unsafe. Overall the hostel was nice, clean and the staff very friendly.
