    We loved our stay at the Woolshed Eco Lodge. Great atmosphere within a beautiful peaceful setting. Had a great sleep too. Very comfortable beds and the family unit was perfect for our family of 5.

    Woodshed is definitely the place to stay if you are coming to Hervey Bay. The location is perfect - just about a 5 min walk from the beach and main road. The hostel and our room was really clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and are happy to help you with all aspects of your stay. I would definitely stay again :)

    Easily one of the best backpackers I have ever stayed at. I highly value a good atmosphere and this place was probably the best in terms of atmosphere, I LOVED the kitchen regime, everyone was so respectful! Only downfall was the hard mattress which hurt my hips/back and the pillows which gave me really bad neck pain, I woke every morning feeling very sore! Apart from that there’s nothing to fault, it was definitely the cleanest backpacker I’ve ever stayed at. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm.

    Staff was very friendly & helpful. My private room was big, well kept, had a ensuite shower/air con & was very clean. The property is very well-maintained & has a great layout which makes you feel like you're in a rural, tropical setting & not a suburb of Scarness. The kitchen area is very clean & well equipped. Being such a small hostel there was plenty of fridge & cubby space which was a huge plus as I'm finished with the party hostels at this point in my travels. Very relaxing hostel!

    Great place to stay! Love the decor, common areas and general set up. People there were so lovely and welcoming. My only gripe is that the bathroom/shower area doesn’t provide much privacy, (unless you want to get changed in a wet shower cubicle). Would happily stay here again ☺️

    Really friendly staff. We came late and had problems figuring out how to get our room key.(our own fault)We went into the staff house and They were so friendly and helped us get our room, even tho they were off duty. They offer shuttle bus to and from greyhound bus stop and distance to beach and shopping is not that far. Just a great place in general!

    It‘s such a nice hostel. I was picked up and dropped off to the Greyhound Bus, that was super helpful. They are all so lovely and nice. I did not know what I wanted to do during my stay here so they showed me what I could do and they can also book tours for you. The rooms are good and the kitchen and chill area were so cool and relaxing. I had two awesome nights, free pasta night and playing cards and 6$ pizza and a quiz. If you are coming to Hervey Bay, you should come here!!

    There were 20 big black flies in our room as if someone let the door open and let them all in. It was unsleepable. We left and slept at another motel. We would like a refund. Please contact me at I have a video.
