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.
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!
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!
Best hostel i've stayed at in aus! Really comfy- wished i could have stayed longer and relaxed! Njce modern kitchen, movie room, free breakfast, free shuttle bus, nice showers and toilets. Everything!
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!
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!
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.
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!
Everything was great but really needs aircon. Staff was awesome. Double room was really nice.
Nice clean hostel, really chilled perfect place to spend a few quite days
