    I stayed at freedom either side of my trip to Fraser Island. To pool is good and there is plenty of space around the site which make it feel comfortable and relaxing. Free pancake breakfast is a real bonus and there is a good bar and cafe . The dorms are fine with en-suite but not all have air con.

    Really nice clean hostel with great facilities and super nice pool and hammocks area. Clean kitchen and nice rooms with en suite! Not much to do really in Rainbow beach but it’s a great stop point for Fraser Island, and also just to relax

    My boyfriend and I had a 7 bed dorm with shower room to ourselves for two nights. However, air con didn’t work and staff didn’t do anything about it despite asking them to take a look- so it was hot, sweaty and uncomfortable.

    staff was super friendly, the beach is very close and so are the shops and supermarket, the pools are nice and the kitchen is a good size. i don’t think i’d come back but just because i don’t think i’d come back to rainbow beach but the actual hostel was really nice. the AC in the rooms was AMAZING and the common room is full of daybeds and beanbag chairs and was so comfortable. only issue is most everyone is coming from/going to fraser so the people you meet are usually leaving the next day.

    Very Good

    We stayed at a 7 bed dorm room for 3 nights. Dorm room had a private bathroom and as nice as that sounds it just doesn’t work in practice. To many people to share one bathroom. Also the bathroom was smelly and in bad shape. Nice with delicious free breakfast and overall a nice place with swimming pool and a nice cosy feeling. Location was amazing. 10 steps to the hostel from bus stop and only 200 meters to shopping facilities and the beach.

    Why make people buy alcohol for Fraser through your over priced bar? Bar manager said he checks weekly for the best deals in town but the bottle shop across the street is cheaper. He wouldn’t match their price so we just bought at the bottle shop and brought our own stuff. No other tour makes you purchase through them. No ac in rooms and other rooms only have one standing fan for 8 people so your just cooking at night.
