I travelled up the East Coast of Queensland in May/June 2014 and Flashpackers was by far the most impressive hostel. It really was a welcome break from other hostels we'd stayed in. Things like a fridge that was big enough to literally walk into and en-suite showers that are more like a waterfall are a definite treat for a backpacker!... More

Stayed here for one night prior to going on a Tour of K'gari (Fraser Island). We landed in just before 8am off the overnight greyhound and were delighted to find out our room was free and ready for us to use - we were desperate for a few hrs kip! The room was basic, clean and spacious! Big, clean, modern... More

It is clean and tidy, the toilets I had were en-suite. The free wifi and computer use was amazing and speedy. The location was good and if you needed the city there was a free shuttle too. The kitchen was rerally clean and there was free tea/coffee/breakfast and there was plenty of cupboard space. Good recycling that I could see... More

Simple, cheap backpacker accomodation but clean and had everything you could need. Free Wifi available in large common room / kitchen and free breakfast. Excellent location just 5minutes onto the beach front. Only slight thing is that the reception isn't always staffed - they often pop out. So we had to wait 25minutes to check in which was a bit...

We were three girls staying two nights at flashpackers and even though we got the old room (the new, renovated ones are supposedly AH-mazing!), we truly enjoyed our stay. The common area is very nice and modern, there is a cinema room (and movie sundays with free popcorn yay) and outside they have plenty of room for hanging newly washed... More

I stayed here either side of a overnight trip to Fraser Island and really enjoyed my stay here. My girlfriend and I booked a private double and it was really luxurious especially compared with other hostels and for the cost I thought it was brilliant. The whole of the hostel was clean and tidy. The kitchen and common room area... More

I stayed here for 2 nights during my east coast trip. I have nothing but praise for both Warwick and Bill and the great hostel they are running here in Hervey Bay. It is clean and well equipped. I loved the movie room, it is a nice place to relax after a hard day by the lovely pool! Great shuttle... More

Blows everyone out of the water. Brand new CLEAN kitchen that actually works! Cinema room is quiet and clean. Staff is amazing and their shuttle service can take you to the supermarket if you request. New and quiet rooms and super close to the esplanade. Anyone looking for a great value in their hostel should stay here!
