Stayed here for 3 nights while we explored Fraser Island and have found it was money well spent. Absolutely loved our stay here, lovely pool, lovely staff, amazing communal area, free use of computers, nice private rooms (although not being able to close the glass door because of "fire risks" is a little strange!), clean bathrooms and kitchens with plenty of storage and utensils. Also because of the closeness to the marina, we were last to be picked up and first to be dropped off on both trips


The staff here are a lovely bunch of people!!


I loved this hostel. The dorm I stayed in was clean, beds were singles and no bunks, there was a small dining area also. Just in general I thought it was really good. The facilities were excellent and the whole feel of the place was of being highly maintained.


The only reason I put average for the staff was because the woman that checked us in we taught was very rude for no reason as we where on time and had everything in order for her. The rest of the staff where very helpful and mad us feel very welcome.


The pecocks are fun and all just not when they keep you up all night.

Lovely staff really really nice on reception including female owner. Rooms all good (we had private) but you can't fully close glass door only mosquito net that you can lock. Apparently this is due to fire regulations?? Never had this anywhere else however? Great communal area, free bus shuttle, good bikes for hire excellent facilities.definately recooment


Not really a hostel at all - a campground with rooms also. We really enjoyed our stay here. Quiet, not for anyone interested in drinking loads or partying. Massive gardens, cheap bike hire, free (not that great) wifi. Double room was clean, decent size and a good price. Kitchen was clean - you do need a deposit for everything but everything is in good order because of this. TV and sofas in kitchen too. Always there to pick you up from bus stop. Would definitely stay again. Decent place.


The hostel is close to the beach and a supermarket. But this are the only things which are close to it. Sometimes the reception is understaffed so you have to wait but the staff is always friendly. I stayed in the basic room for one night. The mattress is very thin and there are no shelves or lockers. But everything (room, kitchen, bathroom) is very clean. There is a bar with an opportunity to eat cheap.


Charging for luggage storage is abit excessive. Staff are not friendly, never meet you with a smile.


Really enjoyed my stay! :D
