This hostel had a shuttle which picked us up at the bus terminal. There was a kitchen where a light breakfast was served. They have bicycles. These were great for cycling along the Esplanade which follows the coast and goes past shops and restaurants. We took a day trip to Fraser Island which was a rollicking ride in a big... More

The pros are friendly staff, shuttle to town/bus station, pool and cinema room. However the location is poor, nothing around and the hostel was unbearably hot. I actually stood in the walk in fridge to cool off!! I couldn't sleep for two nights and woke up constantly in hot sweats. Apparently they will be getting aircon though but I couldn't... More

G'day mate! I totally agree, it is ridiculously hot and the rooms are very hot, and yes air conditioning is on its way which will make sleeping in comfort possible again. Be aware though during your stay Queensland is just experiencing its hottest night time temperatures in 10 years, so this is an unusual circumstance right now. Within a couple... More

Almost as good as Noosa Flashpackers, only negatives are no lockers or aircon in the bedrooms. Bedroom (4 bed ensuite) was really big and clean. Comfy bed with two pillows. Ensuite big clean monsoon shower. Big common areas, pool and kitchen. Huge walk in fridge. Great cinema room with lots of cushions, large screen and aircon. Shuttle to town. Friendly... More

This hostel is really nice. It has a huge living area with large kitchen, a cinema room, pool and patio. The German, blond guy that was working at the time was really helpful in booking our trips to Fraser. Room was large but I am not sure what was deluxe about it. Very young crowd.

Hostel is nice but a little bit run down. Free bus to city center or 45 min walk. Free Wifi and the movie room is great. Rooms w/o AC, could be hot in summer. Unfortunately, not every bed has light and power plug. Hope they invest to become more like Noosa Flashpackers.

Thanks for sharing your experience with us and staying in both Noosa and Hervey bay Flashpackers. Noosa was built brand new and all rooms have all the accessories and fancy rain head showers. At Hervey Bay we do have those rooms, but also 'older' rooms that don't have individual bed lights and power points. Sometimes the $2 difference in price... More

I stayed there for three nights in late december 2014 and I had a really great time! It's a very nice and modern hostel with good common areas and a big and clean kitchen. It has a nice decking with BBQ and pool. The rooms are big and newly renowated, and are kept nice and clean. New madrasses. The staff... More

We really liked the flashpackers hostel here and in Noosa. It was just as good as the Noosa one except no lockers and no air-con. This one was a lot more spacious and had a bigger pool. It was a really clean hostel and great place to chill out. Also had free wifi. Definitely would recommend it, only thing that... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Flashpackers in Hervey Bay. It has excellent staff, cleaned room and bathroom and nice kitchen and common areas! Good transfer to and from the bus terminal and shops. The best hostel during our vacation in Australia. We could really recommend both Flashpackers in Hervey Bay and Noosa! :)
