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

This hostel is the best I have stayed in and one of the cheapest so far. The staff are so friendly it makes a nice change. They make every effort to learn your name. On arriving after a 28 hour journey it was brilliant that the free bus was already there waiting. There is no need to call for the... More

We were really pleased to stay here for two nights, we had a very warm greeting and a tour around the town. The kitchen was incredible and so clean and tidy. Movie room was a big hit as well as the free wifi and breakfast. I couldn't fault this hostel.

I LOVE this hostel!!! The staff are all super friendly and the owner greets everyone by name. The pool is resort quality and exactly what you need on a hot day. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. Bathrooms felt clean and looked quite new which, lets face it, can be rare in hostels. I love the cinema... More

The East Coast is littered with hostels and there is a lot of burning greed to squeeze money out of backpackers. A great deal of humanity and compassion is lost in this rat race. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the generosity, kindness and vibrancy of flash packers Hervey Bay. I got off my greyhound bus and I was greeted... More
