    I absolutely loved my stay at the Woolshed. It has a historic, settler vibe and the staff and guests were helpful and responsive to my questions and needs. It is very economical while offering a safe and comfortable stay. Altogether a memorable experience. Will choose to stay there in future. Plus I got an upgrade to a private room which was charming.

    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.

    Great place to stay in Hervey Bay. Lovely building with clean amenities, awesome common room and kitchen, nice outdoor garden to also cook or relax and have a drink. Also has a car park off the street at back of the property if your traveling with a (small-ish) vehicle.

    If you need cheap accommodation than this is the place, but that's about all its got going for it. Woolshed has more of a motel feel than a hostel. There was no vibe what so ever. The room was boiling hot. The bathrooms are in serious need of renovation. The "eco" element felt a bit like a con. The staff weren't particularly hospitable. On a positive note, it's a great location. Very close to the main shops/cafes/beach.

    We left after the first night as there was a serious domestic alongside of us and our phone call for help got no response from the person managing the property. We were concerned for our car's welfare even. We didn't feel safe to go outside. We also felt the level of cleanliness was inadequate.
