Me and my boyfriend have stayed in flashpackers for 3 nights and thought it was fantastic! The kitchen/common area was insane! Always clean, lots of utensils and the cinema area was brilliant! So cosy! Our rooms were fine as well, stayed in a 8 man with a private bathroom where the shower and toilet are separate which is cool because... More

Chose the Flashpackers due to the Tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. The showers were excellent! The kitchen facilities were also great. If you get a chance make sure to watch a film in the cinema. This was perfect for a rainy day and was a great way to meet other hostel goers. Flashpackers I found to be the easiest... More

I stayed here for one night only as a base for a Fraser Island trip. I have to say the staff were really friendly and helpful and the free pickup from the greyhound was a bonus. But sadly when it comes to my room vs the photos on here it's like I stayed a different place. The communal areas are... More

We stayed for three nights at Flashpackers and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were friendly and helped us to book our trips. The kitchen / communal area was the best set up we've come across... super clean and tidy, sociable, and free breakfast and tea/coffee was a great touch. The room we had was comfortable and clean (if a... More

We stayed in Flashpackers after a 3D/2N Fraser Island tour. It was a great place to regenerate having slept in a tent and not showered for a few days. Something that can always make or break a hostel is the staff members. The manager was very friendly, happy to answer any questions I had and generally seemed keen to ensure... More

Great place to stay. Free shuttle transfer from bus station. Beds very comfortable. The kitchen facilities were great lots of pots and pans available for use. The pool was great although it was a little cold to enjoy it in July. No much to do around Hervey Bay but good stop over for fraser island or whale watching. Free breakfast... More

This place is amazing! The staff are incredibly friendly, the facilities are amazing, and it's super easy to connect with some new people here. Although Hervey Bay as a place to stay is fairly boring, this hostel makes it all right. I happily extended my stay to chill out and hang out with the guys here for a few days.... More

I just had one night here whilst I was in town to do a Skydive and I really enjoyed my stay. The manager and staff were all very friendly and helpful and the hostel is really clean, tidy and well equipped. Free breakfast and Wifi was a big plus.
