One of the nicest hostels we've stayed in by far! Every member of staff we talked to were more than happy to help and couldn't be friendlier! Bathrooms and bedrooms were very clean and each bed had its own plug socket which was great! The lounge area was nice and big and so was the kitchen with a big walk... More

We stayed here before and after our Fraser Island tours and were generally really happy with our stay. The kitchen and lounge area is a great space, and the walk in fridge and free use of computers are great features. The rooms were all very clean and the receptionist staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful! The only big... More

Stayed here a couple of nights before heading to Fraser / K'Gari Island. In retrospect, the best part was probably the free re-usable grocery shopping bag (which is so sturdy I continued to use it throughout Australia and in South America many months later). ROOM: Average bunk beds in the dorm. Clean bathroom. Decent sleep quality. KITCHEN / DINING /... More

It is a very nice and cozy hostel. The staff is very friendly and felt very welcome here. It was a shame we only stayed there for a night before hopping onto fraser island. They have private parking available in their backyard. The rooms are big enough, clean and airconditioned. Ensuite bathroom with separate toilette is also very convenient. Brilliant... More

We only stayed the one night here but the hostel was brilliant. The rooms were clean and the facilities were really good. Washing machines, a cinema room, a pool, sofas and free breakfast. Possibly one of the best hostels ive stayed in. Also the staff were amazing. Very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The only downsides that I found... More

Thanks for your kind words reflecting everything we try to get right at Flashpackers. Apologies we did have some major issues over the last week with the internet supply to the hostel, one of those out of our control things which is now back up to speed and working well for all our guests and for our reception staff!

We are very proud of all our staff, and yes Fanny is terrific! Cyclone nearby meant lots of rain so thanks for pointing out our cinema room (I love watching movies in there too - huge screen 3.6m x 2.2m). Glad you were safe, comfortable and had a great stay in crappy weather conditions. Trust all is back on track... More

We went to the beach at midnight, with our own champagne :-). And saw the modest fire works, under the stars and celebrated the new year in a memorable way! The only down... More

The best hostel I've stayed at in Australia. The building feels like a plays you would spend a nice summerweekend at. It's very fresh and clean and the rooms are big and convenient. The staff is very nice and the manager has a good sense for humour. They care about their customers and make you feel very welcomed.
