Good basic accommodation. Friendly staff. Room needed some maintenance.

Rooms were good - spacious and clean but the kitchen lets the hostel down. There was hardly any equipment so you couldn't cook properly and you are given metal plates and cups to use which makes everything taste metallic. Also no free WiFi. I stayed at Pippies hostel in Rainbow beach as well and that was definitely better than Frasers.


Overall a decent place to stay, the kitchen didn't have much and was pretty small, and cleanliness was about as expected for a hostel full of backpackers staying the night or two. Other than the bars drinks being pretty expensive, it was decent value for money, the common area had DVDs free pool table, ping pong, and sometimes live music, so that's all good!


Excellent location and bar. Room interior needs a good clean and revamp. Front desk staff more interested in chatting with one another than serving guests. Bar staff really friendly and fun!


Really unfriendly and unhelpful staff, atmosphere ruined by how cliquey the staff are. The first night I was there they had a 'lock in' in the bar, which seemed to amount to a private party for male barstaff and female backpackers. I wouldn't mind but the music was really loud and I was obviously not invited to the party (the bar for was closed in my face) so had to try and sleep with music blaring in the next room. Over all the worst hostel I've stayed in. I would recommend Dingos or Pippies

Absolutely awful. Rainbows just a stopover for Frasers but this hostel is disgusting. And they take your passport as deposit...wth?! Stay at Dingos next door if you can.
