    Lovely stay at Rainbow beach, they offer a free sand boarding tour which is a must! Free drink at Dingos bar and a good kitchen. Only problem was the amount of Cockroaches in our room!

    Not very acceptable of people with disabilities. Cannot climb top bunk, sent emails to hostel to ask for bottom bunk since I cannot climb top bunk due to medical issues and they told me that there was really nothing they could do. I find this quite unacceptable

    Stayed here before going to Fraser Island. The kitchen is absolutely disgusting, flies everywhere, hardly any cups, plates etc. The room door didn’t shut properly so not very safe. There is only one bathroom in the room you share so annoying when that’s taken. Plug sockets only by one bed so everyone has to have their phones etc on that persons bed. You get free pancakes only between 7am-7.30am which is weird. Good location as Rainbow Beach is small. Stay elsewhere if you can!

    I recently spent 3 nights here noticing a rash appearing on my leg I went to the doctors who informed me it was bed bugs!! I informed the hostel who seemed to not take it seriously at all and accepted no responsibility or offered any form of compensation or seemed likely to investigate. My bracelet and headphones also went missing here!!
