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.

Our office is in unit 1, and we have a big A frame sign at the front showing this. We have no pay phone, but you have a mobile? Yes, we have 1 shower to 3 bedrooms, but that is for only 5 people, who use the fully equipped kitchen, which is a standard size for such an apartment. The patio door can only be opened from the INSIDE when it is locked? We have shuttle service, you only need to ask. I don't understand why you extended your stay if you weren't happy.

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.

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.

Yes, the apartments are fully self contained with only up to 5 people in a large 2 storey townhouse. We are a 4 minute bus ride from town and a 100 metre walk to the beach, yes, we are the quietest backpackers in town. I think that works also.
