Stayed here twice, once before and once after Fraser island trip. Really cool place. Owner and staff are brilliant, really friendly, pick up from bus station, free wifi, free breakfast, and free bbq one night as well. Facilities are top notch- kitchen is clean and all working, common areas are good, movie lounge also nice. Rooms have everything you need... More

Just the one night here before we went to Fraser Island the next day. Clean rooms, good kitchen, friendly staff who will come and get you from the bus stop, and free breakfast/wifi! Couldn't ask for a lot more.

Brilliant hostel, super clean, fantastic staff (especially Tom. Such a shame he has gone.) Homely little place where you can relax. Make friends with everyone and watch any of over 600 movies in their amazing cinema room. Hervey bay isnt the most exciting town in the world but easy access to Fraser Island. Beats staying at boring rainbow beach.

Did stay here couple nights when visiting Fraser Island. One friend of mine recommended this hostel and I'm not wander why. It easy to feel yourself welcome here. This is quite luxury hostel. Our room was super! Bed and linen are proved, also blanket and warmer blanket. You have own reading light and plug. This hostel did have rain shower!... More

This hostel is run by a couple which gave the place a little bit more of a personal feel than other hostels I stayed in, in Oz. We were picked up for free from the Greyhound terminal and they offer free drops off/pickups in town from the hostel at various points in the day (to coincide with the Greyhound timetable).... More

I spent 2 nights here before my amazing trip to Fraser island in the girls only dorm which was just lovely. No bunk beds which was such a treat. Free breakfast in the morning and the cinema with hundreds of movies was also amazing. The place is extremely clean which was a nice change from a lot of the other... More

Complimentary shuttle service waits to meet you off the greyhound. You get a quick tour of Hervey bay's amenities/ points of interest on the short ride to the hostel which sets the tone for how helpful the staff at Flashpackers are. Rooms are spotlessly clean and spacious with individual lights and plenty of sockets. Amazing sunflower head showers, no bunkbeds... More

I can't rate this hostel enough, our stay was excellent and must compliment Tom and Paula for their exceptional customer service who made us feel at home for our 3 days here. The hostel is very clean, with good wifi in the common area. The kitchen is big and cleaned numerous times throughout the day with free utentsils. There is... More

This hostel was a great place to stay before my Fraser Island trip I stayed for 2 nights before and after my trip. The staff were friendly and helped me to choose and book a Fraser Island tour. There was a great wine and cheese night, in which everyone who wanted to participate was asked to turn off their phones,... More
