We really loved this hostel! The location was perfect, and Greg in the reception was excellent! He picked us up in the morning before he started work, and he arranged everything for us with baggage ex, when we went to Fraser Island. The best hostel we have visited in Australia!

It really is a Friendly Hostel! Nice beds, a living room with a tv and a very clean and neat kitchen! Also Ashleigh was very helpful with everything, i.e. giving information about Fraser Island tours. And the free bike hire is very cool! Hostel is also near a supermarket, restaurants and the beach. My favourite hostel so far!

Honestly,friendly was the cleanest hostel I ever stayed!!! The atmosphere is really nice,as I jut felt like I'm at home(definetley not hostel but home feeling!)!! You share kitche,living room and bathroom just with a couple of people,so you never really have to wait for anything. It's not a big party hostel,but is the perfect place to relax and take some time out of the trevel stress.

Not much to do in Hervey Bay but good to start your Fraser Island tour. The hostel is not the most friendly one I've ever stayed in but probably the best in Australia so far. It's more like a homestay. Wifi is free (could be faster) as well as bicycles. Be careful the bikes are not safe!!! Laundry is free if you book a tour with them. Bathrooms and rooms are clean. Kitchen could have more equipment but all in all a good choice.

This hostel is very cute, each unit is laid out like a house, kitchen, living room with TV and couches and 3 or 4 bedrooms leading off. It's very clean and the staff were helpful, just what I needed as a stopover to fraser Island. In terms of atmosphere it was okay, but there were not many people checked in at the time. It even has guinea pigs at the front for a nice touch!

Cannot rate this place any more. The friendly hostel is a quiet hostel which was perfect for me. The beds were amazingly comfortable. Best night sleep I had in Australia! Exceptionally clean and a great place for anyone not just backpackers. Should be charging more money. Amazing facilities and Gary also managed to book a very last minute trip which was amazing. Gary was greatly accommodating and really deserves recognition!!

Well equipped hostel for a nice and relaxed stay in Hervey Bay. Rooms were all very nice and clean, facilities clean as well. Bikes to rent if you are too lazy to walk the longer distances through Hervey Bay. Free WiFi also a plus. Definitely recommend this place if you aren't looking for a party hostel in HB, but more for a calm place.
