    The female dorm we booked was full so we got a free upgrade to a private room. When arriving early the staff offered to store our bags in her place because the luggage room was under Reno’s so very accommodating staff! Good location cowls and bus stop not far.

    This was just a place to stay whilst I visited my family over the Christmas holiday. It was a good place to stay for several nights. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were a few long term stayers who were also interesting and friendly to talk to. The beaches and local cafes were amazing.

    The staff are friendly and I had great conversations with the other guests while I was preparing meals and watching TV. My only complain is that the kitchen really needs a facelift - just fresh bench tops would make a real difference and improve the cleanliness. Otherwise I had a very good stay.

    Below standards experiences so far. I like this hostel, the staff are lovely and helpful, however the facilities need upgrading to compare with others. Room had kid sized bunk beds, dodgy locks and inconveniently placed/not enough power wall sockets. Closest thing I could find to a security locker is an unlocked office cabinet.

    Location is good, but the reception hours are a joke. It’s hard to catch people at the reception. Free bicycle was okay. My privatroom was clean and with soaps :) Kitchen is not so clean and the living room too, looks a bit old and damaged. My Fan was broken, one of the staff members told this the reception which was awesome. Rooms are quiet small, just one electric plug. People were nice and free BBQ was great! For that’s the only hostel in Caloundra it’s good! I can recommend it!

    Stayed here for one night, towels are not included even though it says they are. Bathrooms were a bit dirty. Kitchens are small so get super busy and they decide to clean them at 7am which is a bit silly. WiFi didn’t work. Corridors smell cheesy from everyone’s shoes. Only two power points in the room for three people and one socket is for the fan. Alright for one night if you’re passing through the town. Walking distance to some shops and parking on the street as well as at the hostel.

    This place should be shut down. Half of it is for Island workers The other half the apparent backpacker part is more like a culty commune of long termers. Stay absolutely anywhere else even in the park across the street would be better.
