Flashpackers Noosa was so much more!!!

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!
Really nice place! No complains, we recommand it!
I loved to stay here and if I come back to Hervey Bay I would stay here again.
Private double room, felt like an hotelroom, walking fridge, Wifi, continental breakfast included
We stayed in a double en-siute room. It was large and clean with a good bathroom, an excellent shower. The hostel has a nice pool and covered verandah and very friendly staff. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a large, racked cold room for the storage of perishable food - a brilliant idea. The common room has room for eating, some good sofas and there is a separate TV/cinema room. WiFi good in common rooms, patchy in bedrooms, and free. Common areas closed midnight to 7am. Rcommenched
The kitchen is the nicest and cleanest I have seen in hostels so far! breakfast and all day coffee and tea is included. Roomwas ok and ckwaclean, staff very nice end helpful!
Excellent kitchen and common places. Comfortable and clean room. Very helpful and kind staff. Free internet and wifi. Good breakfast options. Not to close from the centre but nice place to walk.
Nice, clean hostel. It has a modern kitchen and a nice lounge area with sofas to hang around and an outside sitting area as well. Highly recommendable.
the staff was friendly and the private ensuite was just perfect (clean, with all the facilities).
Hostel is great, Hervey Bay is not that great..

There was no wifi signal in the rooms but it was good in the common room which was spacious with lots to do. Day staff were soooo helpful and nice. Kitchen was clean. Bedrooms didn't have bunk beds which is awesome! Nice washrooms too. Far away from bus stop but there is a shuttle.
We have been 7 days travelling around QLD and this backpacker was by far the best one. staff more than friendly, the owner was like a dad helping us with everything and booking as well a wale watching tour because we had a problem. really nice place, completely clean and quite. I'll be back for sure.
Excellent, quite new place with friendly staff. Generous kitchen facilities, FREE tasty breakfast, internet access - all convenient things, that do not apply to most other hostels/backpacker locations.

The hostel was really nicely located, just by the beach and a small shop a short walk away. The staff were friendly and the kitchen and dining area is one of the best I've seen in a hostel - lots of cooking space and equipment and very CLEAN! I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.
