So pleased with this hostel. Our trip to Fraser included a night stay before and after the tour. First night we were in a 4bed which has enough space for us all. The shower room was big and both it and toilet room were the cleanest i have seen yet! The kitchen was great although some other girls left it... More

Me and my four girlfriends stayed at Palace Backbackers before our trip to Fraser Island. We got a room on the first floor, and since there were no lockers in the room (which there usually is in a hostel) we had to keep our valuable stuff next to our bed. When we woke up the next morning at six o'clock,... More

Too much to say and not enough time to say it. Great staff, spacious rooms, nice communal areas , clean bathrooms and kitchens and of course a great location. We stayed here for a few days after our Fraser Is trip and was a great way to unwind

I did my Fraser Island trip with palace and stayed there the night before and after the tour. I loved every minute, the staff was helpful and the facilities where good and clean. The tour itself was amazing. The camp has everything you need and is right on the beach. The tour guide was amazing, and he knew everything there... More

Palace is a great place to stay. Clean, tidy and only a 5 min walk to the main stretch of beach and shops. The people who worked there are great. Really helpful when we had questions to ask. The trip it's self is probably the best trip down the east coast. We had a great group of people and the... More

We booked a Palace Fraser Island trip through Wicked travel. The hostel itself could do with some work - the kitchens were so poorly equipped that there was only a single fork in ours to cater for around 30 people! We also had to share an apartment the night before our trip with lots of people who had just got... More

Thank you for your review, Each of our 8 units sleep 17 people in 5 rooms and each has its own kitchen. As groups get together we generally find that our plates,cups and cutlery all end up in one of the other units and a lot of people don't have the consideration for others by returning them to the correct...
