Great hostel, so clean and tidy with great facilities, only stayed one night but if I had more time I would have stayed all week! Showers are amazing also. If you're going to Hervey Bay make sure you stay here.


Perfect 11/10 !!!


Not always useful information at reception desk. Breskfast included in the price but because of early check-out, nothing to eat was provided (eg picnic). Asked for an extra blanket and didn't have one. No maps of the area at reception.

The huge hang out area was brilliant and a good place to meet other travellers. The place is exceptionally clean, and free breakfast is a bonus! Staff are helpful and enthusiastic.


Great stay. Fantastic shuttle service. Top quality showers!

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We are proud of our waterfall showers, good to know our guests love them too. Thanks for telling others about our shuttle service, we meet all buses between 7.30am and 9.45pm. Have a great time on the rest of your travels. Cheers from the Flashpacker Team.


One of the nicest hostels we stayed in, in Australia. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and cosy and the shower is great. Free wifi works well and the kitchen is immaculate. We would definitely stay here again

Best hostel I've stayed in ever! Such lovely staff! Very clean, huge kitche, pool, and lots of planned activists. Wish I could have stayed longer.


The girl who manages the place (I think her name is Kaly) is awesome! She is the best kind of person to work at a hostel. So warm-hearted and friendly! She makes this place like a family.

Thanks for your lovely comments. Kayleigh is a great asset to our hostel. Glad you felt at home. Enjoy the rest of your travels.


Awesome hostel, only complaint it can get very cold in rooms and blankets are inadequate


Best kitchen I've seen at a hostel. Very clean. How all hostels should be!


A clean hostel to bed down for the night. Quiet enough and it's close enough to the beach. Rooms were nice of what we saw as we stayed in a private dorm so can't comment. The kitchen is decent and it's very clean. Has a shuttle service to the greyhound bus terminal which is good, however the staff could be a little more friendly. Overall I think we were a little unimpressed by a seemingly average hostel really after hearing some very good things.


Fantastic place to stay, really enjoyed my stay here!

Thanks for your kind words. So good to hear you enjoyed your stay. Safe travels. Cheers from the Flashpacker team


The owners of the hostel were incredible, friendly, so helpful with booking tours and show you round the hostel personally. Only a few minutes walk from the beach, and a shuttle to take you to the shops or greyhound various times throughout the day. Nice calm and quiet atmosphere, which i much prefer to the crazy party hostels. Would definitely visit again. Plus best showers by far ive ever used in a hostel!

Wow what a great review. Awesome news that you wanted to stay longer. Lots of our guests extend their stay with us to chill out and enjoy all the facilities we have to offer. So good to hear we are doing a great job at providing a modern, clean and well equipped hostel. Enjoy the rest of your travels and thanks for your kind words. Cheers from the Flashpacker team.


Good hostel, the staff is lovely and actually bothers to learn your name. Had a lovely time here!


The Hostel was fine for a stop over but I would not stay any longer than a couple of days. I have to say I felt really sorry for the the receptionist, she was a jack of all trades! Which is probably reflective of the owners attitude to staff working in their Hostel... aka lack of respect.


Stayed here for one night before a Fraser Island departure. Was perfect for getting our heads down for the night and a quiet night's sleep before being up early! Breakfast was also included which was really nice, and the hostel was clean and comfortable. I am heading back to Hervey Bay again soon and will definitely stay here. There is a free shuttle from the coach terminal to the hostel, don't make our mistake and walk the 5km!
