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

Flashpackers - Best hostel I have stayed in throughout Australia. Very comfortable and they offer shuttle buses around 8-10 times a day so it is easy to get around. Kitchen is nice and big so you don't have to wait around for long when cooking. Stayed in a private 2 person dorm with an en-suite...bit pricey but definitely worth every... More

Flashpackers was great for a one-night stay in Hervey Bay, before we headed off to Fraser Island. We were greeted at the Greyhound coach stop to find there was a courtesy shuttle bus (great if you have heavy bags!). Staff member was friendly and was prompt at checking us in. The room was basic but all we needed for the... More

Just the one night here before we went to Fraser Island the next day. Clean rooms, good kitchen, friendly staff who will come and get you from the bus stop, and free breakfast/wifi! Couldn't ask for a lot more.

Brilliant hostel, super clean, fantastic staff (especially Tom. Such a shame he has gone.) Homely little place where you can relax. Make friends with everyone and watch any of over 600 movies in their amazing cinema room. Hervey bay isnt the most exciting town in the world but easy access to Fraser Island. Beats staying at boring rainbow beach.
