Hostel is nice but a little bit run down. Free bus to city center or 45 min walk. Free Wifi, Movie room is great. Rooms w/o AC, could be hot in summer. Not every bed has light and power plug. Hope they invest to become more like Noosa Flashpackers.

The hostel itself was nice enough. Although it was disappointing that the wifi access did not seem to extend to the rooms and was available only in the public areas. The atmosphere in the hostel was a bit awkward, and not as pleasant as in other hostels I have stayed in. The main problem however was one member of staff, name unknown but he was European and extremely rude, to the extent that he made my girlfriend cry. The Australian staff members were much more pleasant so it was a real shame.

Thanks for taking the time to review. We're disappointed you found our staff not to your standard, as until now they receive nothing but praise. Having Free unlimited wifi for all our guests is a bonus most hostels don't offer, in rooms means people don't mix & mingle. Over 4 nights we host different free events to get people chatting, and enjoying each others company, I don't understand the awkwardness. Different personalities and cultures can sometimes be misunderstood, perhaps that was it!

Stayed in Deluxe 8 bed with ensuite. Rooms was made up of bunkbeds. Nice communal seating area and kitchen. No lockers in rooms which means bags are everywhere. Sometimes people steal your bed. Staff were excellent offering tips for future travel.

Free shuttle from Greyhound station, several shuttles during the day that will take you to the shopping centre. Hostels located just by the beach. Free wifi ( didnt work for me tho) and free breakie. Rooms are small and very personal, 4 normal beds in one room with ensuite (no bunks) , felt more like a motel than hostel except that you shared your room!! Spacious kitchen, free pool to use. Very friendly staff that will assist you in booking fraser island tours :) overall a very good stay!

Great modern place, owners are cool and helpful too! It was a very homely, friendly and clean hostel. We got picked up from the bus station which was nice and everyone - customers, staff and owners were nice. Hervey Bay was quiet but hostel still cool...

Very impressive, best hostel I've ever stayed in and not more expensive than alternatives. Highly recommended. Great staff, free WiFi, good hot showers, clean, managed to sleep undisturbed, loads of room/equipment in kitchen etc. Not in main centre but location is ideal plus they have regular free shuttle bus to town/greyhound stop etc.

I thought that the hostel was very modern, compared to any other hostel I have ever stopped in. The gentlemen that picked me up from the greyhound was unbelievably informative and polite.

Nice, clean hostel. The only hostel so far where i stayed in a regular bed (no bunks in my room). Nice big clean bathrooms and kitchen was huge. Free wifi and breakfast is always a big plus. The flashpackers in noosa was a little nicer because when i stayed there the atmosphere was better and it felt like more love went into the place. But this one is still nicer than most hostels :)

FlashPackers was very clean, Friendly staff, so close to the beach and our private room was like a hotel room ! Very nice bathrooms. Would have been better if they're shuttle ran a little more often, ended up catching a shuttle to get groceries at around 2 and wasnt able to get back until around 5. Other than that it was awesome, we liked the cinema room !

Hostel is lovely. Ive stayed in both flaspackers (Noosa) and they are both really nice. Free Breakfast is a nice touch and the internet is good too.

Quiet but enjoyable stay. Hervey itself is a very quiet place so hostel reflects that. Decent free wifi, nice pool area, cinema room with lots of films, big open kitchen/common space with all cutlery/dishes provided free. Shuttle buses running to bus station/woolworths. short walk to beach. rooms spacious and cleaned daily. cereals/toast/tea/coffee for free breakfast 7-9am. good place to chill and have a couple of days off the drink, break up the journey up to airlie beach.

I really loved my stay. The hostel is very neat, it has a shower, toilet and sink seperately (which I find a big plus) and good wifi. The kitchen is clean and big. The only thing I could recommend are lockers in the rooms.

A great stop off point before or after a trip to fraser island. Free breakfast arranged for before our 7am tour pick up.
