The bathrooms need to be updated and a light definitely needs to be put into the shower area, because it is impossible to shower there mid afternoon or later. Also there were lots of ants crawling in one of the showers. Beds are fine and lockers work well. Love the bus running to and from the beach, though one more around one would be nice.

Good location but the facilities were dirty, especially the kitchen. Moreover, the atmosphere was kinda sad.

decent hostel with a good atmosphere, met lots of cool people. The facilities weren't great though as you could hear everyone from onside the room and in the next room or bathroom because of the hole above the door. Not enough outlets in the rooms. Great restaurant in hostel that I'd highly recommend. Overall had a good time


Overall it wasn't too bad, location isn't great but free shuttle bus is supplied. The hostel isn't fantastic....rather overpriced! $75 a night for a double room in a block with one shower and one toilet for around 20 people just isn't adequate. The hostel is clean enough but it is very rundown and in serious need of a revamp. If I hadn't been paying so much I would've liked the hostel more. The staff seemed quite undertrained, nice enough but check in was poor with no info or linen supplied.


This hostel is ok, nothing more but nothing less either. The location is a bit off but they have a shuttle running regularly to the beach and to Noosa Junction. Walking to the junction takes about 30 minutes. 10 minutes to the supermarket which is good. For what you pay this hostel is alright.


Far away from town but there's a free shuttle that runs throughout the day which is useful! Rooms nice and free lockers with charging points are an added bonus! Wifi can be a bit patchy though.


Very comfortable bed's Nice Service and Staff Free Bus Transfer to Beach and Junction often per Day. 10-15 Minutes Walk to Woohlworth


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.

Fine hostel (although the rooms are too hot). But it's no fun for a backpacker, beach and nightlife is at least 30 min walking distance. Would have been nice if the hostel put together a BBQ or something, but you can see a movie or rent a surfboard for free! That was great!


Decent hostel, about a 30 minute walk to the beach but it is right on the river and the free canoe rental is awesome


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.
