    Beautiful place, clean and with a lot of facilities. The staff was really friendly and took us to sandboard for free. The hostel is only 2 mins away by walk of the main beach and the shops. I loved the pool ☺️

    Good place to stay before and after Fraser tour. Had good facilities including good cafe, reception staff were great but bar manager was rude and unfriendly. Rooms and bathrooms were really good. Overall would stay again. One thing to note is that your must buy your alcohol for Fraser tour from hostel but if not all drank on tour the alcohol is taken off you when you return to the hostel. Seemed like this rule was just to make more money out of us.

    Extremely clean and well cared for, friendly and helpful staff, great location 100m from shops and bars, 400m from great beach. Quiet at night and the air con could be switched off when necessary. The kitchen could have done with another sink at busy times as only one was not enough. The only real downside was the compulsory musak filling the outside eating area which was difficult to escape from if you wanted a quiet spot. I would deffo book there again.

    Basic hostel which makes a good stopover on the way to/from Fraser Island, but not much more than that. Communal facilities are good, though they close at 9pm, but bedrooms are basic, most don’t have air con and they’re not very secure. No lockers for valuables and ground floor rooms are sliding doors that people barely lock! Free pancakes are available 6:30-7:30am but good luck getting any after 7am.

    Good hostel close to the beach and Fraser Island. We have a stayed in many hostels and know the standard of hostel kitchens and this one was bad. There is a very limited amount of everything. There are never (once a day a few are brought out) any clean tea towels. This encourages people not to do the washing up or dry their stuff. Due to this flies are everywhere meaning you can’t turn your back on your food for a second. They do offer nice free pancakes at 6:30, but after 7 they’re all gone.

    Reese at the dingoes bar was great. However, there were no recycling facilities which was upsetting to see in the current climate.

    This hostel is huge and I’m not a fan of it. There is only this one and another hostel and both have ridiculous pricing. It’s cheaper to stay in Sydney then staying here. And besides if this it’s quiet dirty. Can’t recommend
