Friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Stayed at both the Hervey and noosa flashpackers both as good as each other, clean, chilled and free fast wifi! Noosa had lockers
Good hostel overall. Nice, clean and well located place. But Hervey Bay is a pretty uninteresting town. Only recommended as entry/exit from Fraser
Need aircon. Perfect kitchen good rooms just hot n stuffy on an evening. Would highly recommend even so.
Me and my friend stayed at this hostel a few weeks ago and it was perfect! The rooms were clean and comfortable with great showers. The pool area was lovely and the kitchen/ chilling area was brilliant to socialise in. The staff were very helpful and friendly
The rooms really need air conditioning but the free WiFi was awesome and fast.

The main issue is the staff. It was difficult to tell if they really worked there or were just enjoying staying there and we were an inconvenience. One woman spent her time just shouting her mouth off. Standing in the middle of the kitchen shouting "who has just checked out of room 4" and various other things. If you were 5 mins late for breakfast there was no chance pathetic and heaven forbid you forgot to close the fridge door properly. These people need to learn some basic manners.
Good little hostel, one of the v few places that gives you both a free brekkie and WIFI-awesome. Basic, but v clean. Staff are great, really helpful and friendly, they offer regular drop offs for the greyhound and to the supermarket. Only bugbear is the lack of lockers in the dorms! Apart from that a good place to stay!
Manager extra helpful. Went Over the call of duty. Thanks Bill!!
Great brand new hostel. Good for a quiet stay - Hervey Bay is definitely not a party town. The hostel was brand new so everything was great except that it got fairly hot at night with only one fan!
Loved it here, really nice place and owners are great, the kitchen is amazing, loads of anything you need, which is a definite luxury!! Dorms quite hot but bearable :)
I loved how the rooms each bed had it's own individual light and plug socket, so much easier than fighting over one! The only thing I wish they had was somewhere to lock away valubles in room! Free wifi was a bonus Also staff holding weekly BBQ for free was so nice, the staff were so friendly!
Best hostel I stayed in for facilities and cleanliness loved it
Fab hostel, kitchn and communal area really good. Pool was nice too. Perfect location for Fraser Island visits
I was intrigued that our 'deluxe' private double room lacked some basic amenities. There was nowhere to hang a towel, no shelves, a very small free-standing fan and a mattress that had no protective cover, which, when stripping the bed revealed large stains. We were anticipating basic accommodation, but I suppose with the 'deluxe' tag we were expecting just a bit more than we actually got. On the plus side, the staff are brilliant and the inclusion of breakfast is a bonus.

Overrated hostel - It claims to be more than an average hostel, but this isn't really the case. The kitchen is great and clean but the tables are usually dirty. Moreover, there is rarely someone at the reception and there is no AC in the dorms. So it gets extremely hot during the night, when you don't leave the dorm door open. In addition, there are no lockers! Apart from that, the hostel was on or above average, but the Flaspacker in Noosa is way better!
Flashpackers is great! I liked it more in Noosa, but Hervey Bay is also great. big kitchen, coutch, loads of tables and plugs. Free WIF!!! Nice pool and very clean. Just lacked a locker in the 6 dorm, but felt really safe here. Luggage storage is safe and you can spend the day there after checking out and waiting on the greyhound bus. Location is not central, but doesn't mind, they have a free shuttle bus.Helpful staff! Recommend it definitely!!!
One of the best hostel i have stayed in oz. Free pickup (bring food if you come late evening by bus!!), free breakfast, nice common area with wifi where you can cook and have dinner with others (if you speak german:) ), very nice staff ready to help and a little swimming pool. No lockers is the only bad thing. Some of our things needs to be locked and thats it; no way 'we can keep it for you at reception'. I want to be free and take my valuables even at 3am if i really want. Easy.
Nice welcome on arrival, with free shuttle and briefing of what to do on hervey bay. Free breackfast. Very good staff, just anoying that there is often nobody in the reception, because they re busy around. Rooms could be more clean, but it s still correct. Good place to relax with the huge sofa and the open kitchen (fully equiped), who create a good athmosphere and make easy the people connexion. Free diner 3 time a week, good wifi for free. Chilly hostel, not for party.
Had the best shower of my traveling life here! Free wifi was also a huge bonus! Massive clean kitchen was great! Location is good for walking to the beach. There are no grocery stores or bottle stores nearby but the free shuttle covers that. Only minor problem is that the staff are sooo busy cleaning and running the shuttle there are many times where nobody is present at reception. Great value!
