Wifi did not always work and was very slow. Good location, close to everything in town and right outside the Greyhound stop. Quiet hostel in a quiet town, but good for one night before/after Fraser Island.


BEST HOSTEL IN RAINBOW BEACH!! Despite being in a small town there was free Wifi (albeit difficult to connect to), free breakfast, good TV room, and swimming pool. The kitchen wasn't large enough and they didn't have an oven. The staff were awesome and the hostel does a really cheap amazing trip to Fraser Island; one of the best tours I've been on, great people!!


The worst hostel I have stayed in throughout my travels in Australia! It is DIRTY, the staff are unprofessional and useless! The 'free' wifi does not work and the 'included breakfast' is toast. Would not recommend this hostel to anyone unless you take antibacterial spray and cleaner with you because that is what you will need to use on yourself when you leave!

Had a nice stay at Pippies. It's no party hostel which I found great.If you want to go for party,just go next door to Dingos. Whole hostel is kept clean,including bathrooms and kitchen. They def.should get new mattresses, they are just awefully soft.Also new locks for most of the doors as it was always a challenge for everybody to get into the room.Could use more atmosphere, they have it all, nice pool,cool backyard,bbq but don't really make anything out of it. Anyways would stay there again.


Nice, friendly and cosy hostel. The Breajfast is deliscious - so much Jam ! and the WiFi usually works as well. Staff is friendly, rooms ab bit too small for a few guests but still very good! Would stay there again. And DO THE FREE SANDY BLOW WALK it will blow your socks of !!
