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.

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!

Thank you for your kind words. So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and managed to get a good night's sleep. Such good news that you found our hostel clean and comfy and liked your breakfast. Our free shuttle meets all Premier and Greyhound buses between 7.30am and 9.30pm. We would love for you to visit again. Thanks again from the Flashpackers Team.

Great hostel, was only there a night which is why we maybe didn't notice much of an atmosphere but the staff are super lovely and the rooms and bathrooms are great so perfect for a stop off to recover on your way up or down the coast!

Thanks for your review. Our staff enjoy making our guests feel comfortable, glad to hear they are doing a good job. Good to hear you found our rooms and bathrooms great, we are especially proud of our waterfall showerheads. Hervey Bay certainly is a great place to chill out by the beach, watch the whales between July and November or do a tour of Fraser Island. Enjoy the rest of your travels from the Flashpacker Team.

I'd highly recommend this hostel, it's one of the best we've encountered in months of travelling. The kitchen is spacious and always spotless and the seating area is comfortable with a great, laid-back atmosphere. The cinema room is amazing and the free sausages, wine and crackers went down a treat! Lockers would be a good addition to the dorms.

Thanks so much for your awesome review. We're glad you liked our kitchen and common area, we find it great for people mingling and chatting while cooking or eating. Our lounge chairs are also comfy for relaxing while using the free wi-fi and our cinema is a wonderful place to chill out and watch one of our hundreds of movies. Glad you were with us on Fridays for our free sausage sizzle and Mondays for free wine and cheese. Enjoy the rest of your travels in Australia from the Flashpacker team.

It's a nice place to stay at. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Most beds have their own lights and plugs. However there were no lockers. Like in the most hostels the mattresses are quite uncomfortable, but that's a minor point.

Staff at flashpackers were really friendly & helpful. I felt like I was at home. Rooms were spacious & clean & so was the kitchen. I'd go back to Hervey Bay just to stay here again! 😊

The staff were very good and friendly. I liked the fact the manager tried to know everyone's name it was just a nice touch.

Everything was great, only thing needed is ac, those rooms get hot! I did ask for and receive an extra fan which was very nice. Staff was great, free WiFi as well. The double room is really nice and I recommend if you can afford.

I stayed in flashpackers in both Noosa and Hervey Bay and enjoyed both locations. Hervey Bay is lacking storage lockers and has few plugs in the room but the main reception area has plenty as well as free wifi. Hostel has a nice vibe but many people are only staying one night before going on Fraser Island trips. Staff are excellent. Unfortunately it is a pretty long walk to a supermarket so make sure you shop before you arrive!

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.
