Fab hostel, the best we have stayed in Australia! Lovely staff and great facilities - the lounge and tv area were great. Clean kitchen and bathroom and very nice to have non-bunk proper beds! Thank you

WiFi was really great!! Hervey bay is quite quiet but the friendly hostel is a nice simple place to stay if you need somewhere not to pricey to facilitate visiting Fraser island. They had air conditioning but the wire couldn't reach the plug hole which was fairly frustrating. The hostel picked up and dropped us off from the bus station which saved us from carrying our heavy bags, and they let us spend the day there while it rained until our late bus arrived so overall were very accommodating.

Great, I would recommend this to anyone staying at Hervey Bay. Really felt like home! We had almost private living room and kitchen. The free use of bikes was also awesome. Super friendly reception and atmosphere. Wow!

Hostel was very poorly run. No shuttle to pick us up at 7pm from bus stop. No directions either by hostel! Had to find the number to ring the hostel to get our key, as reception was closed (seemed to always be closed). Even though the owner lived upstairs he didn't even come down to meet us! Ants were everywhere. The reception doesn't open till 8am, if you're leaving earlier than this, you can't leave your bags here to be locked up while you go to Fraser Island! -Seemed like we were a nuisance

Hi, if you had replied to our initial email when you booked , in which we ask all the questions that you referred to in your writing, there would not have been any problem ! I do not live on site and ants come out of no where when the rain is on its way. Unfortunately can not control nature - sorry !
