The description of the hostel was deceiving when we read about what to expect. The "hostel" has no office, no phone to use, it was nearly impossible to find the owner to get anything we needed. It's a big apartment with 3 separate rooms, and one shower between the 3 rooms staying there. The kitchens small, the door to the patio area can easily be opened even when it's locked. There was supposed to be a shuttle service to the city, but there isn't. You have to pay for the bus.
Good stay next to the beach. Better suited for couples or a bunch of friends. If you like to surf and you have your own surfboard, this is the place to be. Bit hard to get around if you have no car because it´s not in the center.
It's basically a house where you can rent one of the bedrooms. We stayed there for one night and enjoyed the atmosphere and the TV in the living room area. It's close to the beach and the twin brothers are very nice and friendly! The only negative aspect is the distance to shops etc, because the bus is quite expensive.
door didnt lock properly. location wasnt good, bus needed to get to the main part of town. self contained apartment was a nice change from a hostel. shared with a couple and another female traveller. nice to sit and chill out and watch the telly
This is not a traditional hostell, but more an apartment. There are two rooms, one with two beds and one with double bed. We were four people staying one night. We therefore got a whole apartment to ourself ( two floors!) which was great. The owners were very helpful and versatile as we arrived late and left early. The location are great if you want to be close to the beach. Still, it is a little far to the main centrum so it can be good to have a car. But you can take the bus.

Kind of a bare basics kind of place - you even get to make your own bed... It's a bus ride away from Noosa Heads and a walk to Sunshine beach, but if you're looking for a quiet place away from everything else, then it works.
We had a nice stay at Melaluka Apartments. The owners are very nice and helpful.
Enjoy Melaluka! It's right next to the beach, the owners are very nice, everything is clean and you'll find everything you need (washing machine, tv, etc.). I couldn't find anything to complain about. I was impressed about the price as well: a 16 bed dorm in Noosa is more expensive than the single room at Melaluka, the twin bed rooms are even cheaper! I stayed in many hostels, hotels and motels in my life. This one was one of the best accomodation so far. I warmly recommend it and will be back.
We would stay again.
