Lovely hostel, lovely staff and free WiFi!!! I really liked the laid-back atmosphere here and the fact that every two rooms have a kitchen and a common area. The hostel is not very close to the centre of Noosa (the hostel offers a courtesy bus though), but 2 min away from the beach and from the National Park!

This hostel is amazing!! It's very close to the sunshine beach and a little bit out of town. But the sunshine beach is soooo much nicer than the main beach. There is also a shuttle bus going to town every 1 1/12 hour. It's very cozy and the atmosphere is fantastic!! Free surfboard and bodyboard hire. Thanks so much, this is one of my favourit hostels!!

Great stay here! Loved the apartment style layout. Great having a kitchen to 8 guests, which was always clean and tidy... Staff were great, super friendly and excellent at making a single traveller feel part if a group! Loved the outside, felt like a Balinese resort... Just a lovely place. Big shout out to Anna, Katelyn, Kelly and Paul!

Wifi was rubbish, had food stolen out of fridge, people walking into my dorm at 2am and climbing through windows both mornings when they weren't even in my room, 9.30am check out any need? All in all just useless

This hostel is very pretty on the outside but not on the inside. There was only 1 bathroom between 2 rooms and it wasn't clean. There was never enough toilet paper; I went in the middle of the night with no paper. You could see into my room from the social area; we wanted to open the window being that there wasn't any AC but it was so loud.People were having a good time which was fine but if the design is how it is, at least put in AC.They made me pay $5 to stay a few extra hours after Check out

Bathrooms and kitchen were dirty, dorm window was facing the area were everyone got drunk so it was impossible to sleep without earplugs. lots of long termers and staff who were very clicky so it was hard to meet people. you have to leave the property at 9.30am if you don't pay $5.

Very cosy place with brightly painted walls, central common area, friendly travellers and great staff! There's a free shuttle bus that takes you to the main bus stops or beach until 6pm which is great, otherwise the public bus stop is just down the road! No lockers anywhere but such a chill vibe, you don't really worry about it. Only downfall is they charge $5 to use the facilities and luggage storage after check out.

Absolutely LOVED staying here! Although it is a bit out of town, there are shuttles about every hour taking you to and from. The set up is like little apartments, with a full kitchen, lounge, and bathroom for every two dorm rooms. Walking distance to Sunshine Beach (which is a lot less busy than Main Beach) and Noosa National Park. The staff are all amazing and social. It is bright pink and decorated with statues of buddahs, elephants and hammocks, which make it relaxing. Wouldn't go elsewhere!

Really nice chilled out hostel with several small kitchens which contain ovens. Nice and clean with really good bathroom. Staff were really nice. Not a party hostel but good for relaxing. Not close to town center but close to a small shop and the nicest beach.

A great hostel near the Sunshine beach, it's just a 5 minutes walk to the beach. Nice staff and a cosy atmosphere. I really enjoy my stay.

Free shuttle bus is great! Wifi only works outside which was cold at night. Seemed like quite a few long-term people living there who were a bit cliquey so was difficult to integrate. Cool outside area

Great hostel. Apartment like setting so every ten beds or so get their own shared kitchen and bathroom. Nice foam beds with clean linens. Very clean! First hostel i showered in without shoes on. Cool, chill common area. Good wifi in common area and a few rooms. Free shuttle bus. Nice staff. I forgot my book and the driver brought it to town for me, thanks paul! Definitely recommend! Also cheapest place during winter in noosa.

We only stayed here for one night but Absolutely loved our stay here. The enthusiasm of the staff was excellent. Although a 45 min walk from main beach there was a regular shuttle service from hostel. Only a couple of minutes walk to sunshine beach, which was much more beautiful than main beach anyway. Make sure you do the coastal walk between sunshine beach an main beach. Breathtaking. The hostel even took us to watch the sunset on their bus. Brilliant service, thank you
