We were very happy with our stay at this hostel. The staff were excellent always happy to help with any queries or problems. The hostel was very clean and we were very pleased with our room. The cinema and pool were definitely an added bonus thank you to the staff for all there help.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hervey Bay flash packers. After three busy and tiring days on Fraser Island we just chilled out for 2 days hanging around by the pool and in the movie room. The staff were really lovely too.

The hostel is clean and has a great kitchen and pool, it just seemed more people stayed at other hostels in Harvey bay, and this one seemed quite empty and not that social.

Hostel was clean and had everything you needed, in particular Bill at reception really looked after me during my stay! I was unwell one night and he went out of his way to make sure I was okay! If going to Hervey Bay definitely stay here

Not only is the location of the hostel perfect if you want to go to Fraser Island, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful! We stayed there the night before we went on a 2day trip and the night after, an additional night because we liked it so much!

After having stayed in flashpackers noosa (very good and clean), we were quite disappointed with this hostel. Rooms we're not clean; garbage can was still full in our room, while there were no other people staying in the room, hair in shower, kitchen tables sticky. Light was broken in our room. We asked to get it fixed several times, nothing was done about it. Wifi didnt work whilst we were there, people from reception didn't really seem to care.

The staff were fantastic, especially during a cyclone scare and the deluxe room was excellent value

Thanks for your kind words. The cyclone scare was a pressure situation for all with transport ground to a halt, so glad to hear our staff made your stay a pleasant one. We are very proud of our deluxe rooms, glad you enjoyed your stay and felt it was value for money. Enjoy the rest of your time in Oz.

We only stayed the one night here but the hostel was brilliant. The rooms were clean and the facilities were really good. Washing machines, a cinema room, a pool, sofas and free breakfast. Possibly one of the best hostels ive stayed in. Also the staff were amazing. Very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The only downsides that I found was that the bedrooms were wayyy too hot and the wifi was hit and miss, it didn't reach the bedrooms either.

Thanks for the awesome review. Sounds like you took full advantage of out facilities. Our air conditioned cinema room is brilliant especially when it so hot outside. Our staff try to do their best to help our guests enjoy their stay, so glad to hear they are doing a great job. Air conditioned rooms will be an option in the future and our Wifi has had major issues recently but we have that under control now. Cheers and have a great time on the rest of your travels.

This was a really great place to stay, there is a large kitcken with everything you need (and free breakfast!) the seating area is cosy and the pool is big and clean. I stayed in two different rooms and it is definitely worth going for the deluxe over budget! The deluxe felt newer and cleaner plus the shower was tonnes better. The shuttle to and from town/the greyhound was great (email them before you get there so they know to come get you). The beach is only a short walk as are shops and bars.

The owners are absolutely lovely and so helpful and the hostel is thoughtfully set out. could do with a little updating but not a problem. Only thing is it is so far from town but they do run a shuttle bus.

I had such a great stay at Flashpackers! The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The hostel has a great common area both inside and out and a lovely pool. The bathrooms in the rooms could've been a bit cleaner and the showers (in the 6 bed dorms) were a trickle! However, overall a really great hostel. Thanks!
