Free sausage sizzle every Friday night, free breakfast every morning, free cheese and crackers with wine every Monday night, free wifi, free shuttle bus and heaps more that I can't remember! Huge movie room with over 600 titles. Perfect after a huge Fraser Island adventure to sit back and relax! BBQs, pool and wonderful entertainment area, including lounges and an... More

Nothing like the pictures on line. Booked a twin but there are different types of twin apparently!! The receptionist was completely rude, we received no towels, there was pubic hair all over the bathroom. She never even said sorry. There is no light outside to access some of the rooms either so you are walking in complete darkness. My mattress... More

It seems girls there is always more to the story than one side and although you may have felt put out as you arrived late and changed your booking to a twin room, that appears to be when lots of issues started for you. Having talked to my staff, your threats to write really bad reviews wherever you could is... More

A really fantastic hostel. Ideally located a short walk from the beach and shops. The staff were all really friendly and helpful spending a little extra time to get to know you. They put on a free wine and cheese night and made sure to get everyone involved and mingling, it was a great evening. They also have other activities... More

The rooms aren't particularly welcoming (pictures on the walls would be nice) but the staff are lovely and really make your stay memorable. There was a powerful overhead shower in our ensuite bathroom and the beds were comfy. The kitchen area was less than desirable, sticky tables to eat at and wet tea towels which put me off somewhat. However,... More

We arrived of the greyhound in Hervey Bay with no reservations and Warick spotted us looking a little lost so he piled all our many bags into the shuttle bus and took us to the hostel! Warick and Cameron were so friendly and funny and got us checked in with ease! The room was bright and spacious with its own... More

It was great having the 3 of you with us even for just a short time, imagine how many times you would have locked yourselves out of your room had it been longer! Job for you whenever you need Rebecca as you 'off the cuff' bus commentary was pretty good! I know you 3 will have great travelling memories and... More

This hostel has great staff and a good atmosphere with free WiFi and breakfast. The kitchen and lounge were comfortable and a good size however my room was a little disappointing. It was ensuite but the bathroom wasn't clean and the shower was the smallest I've seen. The curtain was hanging off and the shower heads was wonky. I didn't... More

Our first night we were sent to bed at 11pm, having only arrived at 10:25pm (signs say the common area closes at midnight). At approx 10:30pm, we were told we were 'allowed' to use the kitchen after a lecture on keeping it clean and general anal stuff about the place. The owner stated that the use of the kitchen was...

Hey Guys and thanks for taking the time to review Flashpackers Hervey Bay. I would of loved to hear your issues while you were with us, as most things can be sorted out once we are aware of them. I've sent our crew to tighten all bunk beds now I'm aware there are squeaky beds in one of the rooms.... More

This hostel is great to stop at for Fraser Island trips and to go out Whale watching. I spent a day in Hervey Bay and spent the morning whale watching and afternoon walking down the esplanade. The following day I started my Fraser Island tour with Barefoot Tours. The hostel provides a free shuttle pick up from greyhound, free breakfast... More
