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...


Had such a fantastic time at this hostel. Originally came for one night and ended up staying 4. The staff and the atmosphere make up for it being a little out from the main beach. But the river just down the road is so pretty it doesn't matter. And the shuttle bus every hour makes getting around so easy. It's a really laid back place, I miss it so much!


Very nice hostel. Shuttle bus goes many times a day which is convenient, nice central common areas, clean rooms and bathrooms and nice staff. It's a bit out of the centre, but with the bus easily reachable. Would stay here again.


As it's not in a central position there's free pick up/drop off to the bus stop and to the city centre. Bathrooms and rooms were clean. It's a bit annoying that there's no plugs in the room but only in the lockers which are outside the room.


Alright hostel. Had to pay returnable deposit for cutlery. Free wi-fi, but was unusable during peak times. Seemed not to be near anything, but they do have a shuttle. The free surfboard rental was nice, although there were no waves at the main beach, I heard later that you should surf at different location. The outlets in the lockers were a nice touch. Understandably our bathroom light was in a timer, so it might cut out while youre showering.
