Property Description

Clean, quiet and friendly. Quality Accommodation at a budget price.
Your home away from home with real beds, real kitchens and all the little touches of home that you don't get in other hostels! Dorms only 3 or 4 people, also king-size twins and doubles. Described as 'the best of a cluster of hostels in the street' by Lonely Planet. Now with FREE bike hire - the only way to explore the 10km of bike paths along Hervey Bay's famous Esplanade!

Purpose built, apartment-style accommodation with polished floorboards, back balcony with ocean views and large, bright, cool, comfortable rooms all year round, you can relax and enjoy the delights of beautiful Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. Free Internet access and guest phone for incoming and outgoing calls available 24 hours.

Quiet, safe, spotlessly clean, friendly and peaceful. No rowdy bars, no cramped dorms, no walking to an outside amenities block, just relax, meet new friends and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Experience personal service and develop friendships with fellow guests in a quiet, intimate setting. Unlike other hostels in the area, we do not close our facilities early so you don't have to retire to your room early to watch TV, you can relax knowing that you can cook (in a real kitchen with everything that you need) watch TV or a DVD, make a 'cuppa' (FREE tea and coffee) chat to others over a drink or simply just enjoy being somewhere that feels just like home whenever you want.

Larger groups travelling together can enjoy the luxury, space and comfort of their own fully equipped apartment at dorm prices!

We are completely independent and live and breathe Fraser Island everyday so when you are staying with us we can make sure that you get the trip that's best for you - whale watching in season (August - early November) as well! The following are FREE for all guests; bike hire, linen, BBQ, tea and coffee, forward bus and hostel bookings, courtesy pick up on request from the transit centre. book exchange, tour bookings, cool sea breezes and oceans views from the back balcony! Also FREE bonus options and baggage storage with all tour bookings.
