The hostel is very average, nothing special. It's an about 30 min walk from the beach and downtown Noosa, but they have free shuttles. The toilets and showers were a bit dirty. Apparently some rooms have air conditioners which was nice.

I had a fairly good stay at this hostel. It's pretty clean. One thing was that there weren't that many toilets for the number of beds. The lockers had electric outlets inside them, which was handy. The bar/restaurant was great. Nothing too special, quite an ordinary hostel


Good simple, cheap hostel in a nice area not too far from anything. Free kayak and surfboards with the free shuttle to take you to the main spots is a massive bonus.


Nice place, doorms were decent and clean, however the kitchen area was a big mess. There wasn't enough staff to take care of the hostel and bar/restaurant. We had to wait 1.5h for a food as they forgot about our order. No BYO :(


We didn't stay here but can't delete out of my reviews list on hostel world. Please disregard our ratings.


The location is not that good, a bit far from the main streets, but is right on the dock and they do have a free shuttle service. It's really hot in the rooms with just one fan for 6 people and the light in the morning is terrible (there's 2 windows and a gap between the wall and the cieling). Other than that, the kitchen is well equiped and the staff is friendly.


Only a few bathrooms for a lot of people.

Staff were happy and helpful, the hostel was clean. The shelvs in the the shower area very high so hard to see if you have left anything on them. Bedsi and pillows very comfortable and linen clean. 6 bunks to our room and we only had to share it for one night with a couple of lovely swedes. It was great for the children to get an idea of pack packing travel. The children and I enjoyed our stay.. Family rooms could be a good idea for low season.

Great place, good atmosphere and awesome staff. Will definetly go there if ever in Noosa again.


Decent place to stay, a bit far from downtown, but they have a shuttle that runs to and from the city (it's not always reliable, but I think that's temporary because they were looking for a new driver).


Location isn't too good but shuttle bus makes it not much of an issue. Kitchen stays reasonably clean and everywhere else is cleaned to decent standard. Room didn't have a full wall so room felt pretty loud. Bar attracts more locals rather than the hostel guests so there's drinking in rooms so even if there's a group talking in the next room it's too noisy to sleep. Friendly atmosphere.


Noosa and Sunshine Coast generally was nice to visit, good, clean, tidy hostel. No complaints! Not much night life though...
