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

We arrived to Hervey Bay off the Greyhound Bus and were pleasantly surprised to be picked up from the station by the Flashpackers bus. The Manager from Flashpackers gave us quite an informative tour on the bus back to the hostel which was actually really interesting. I wish more hostels would have someone so energetic and helpful. We were shown... More

I stayed here for two nights. This place was amazing, they had a free BBQ sausage for dinner on friday which tasted amazing. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious. The only two suggestions I would recommend is to put more powerpoints in the rooms and include a waterproof mat in the bathrooms as the floor gets wet after... More

In 2 minds about Flashpackers. Staff were nice, there's a shuttle bus, kitchen and communal facilities are great. We stayed 2 nights in 2 different dorms (15 & 4), both had only small fans to keep the rooms cool which was nowhere near enough - we found our 2nd night in dorm 4 unbearably hot. Not sure how people cope... More

I only stayed there for the night so i didn't get to see a lot. All rooms including the public rooms and outside and bathrooms were clean and tidy and looked really nice. Staff was really friendly and helpful! Really nice free breakfast

One of the nicest hostels we've stayed in by far! Every member of staff we talked to were more than happy to help and couldn't be friendlier! Bathrooms and bedrooms were very clean and each bed had its own plug socket which was great! The lounge area was nice and big and so was the kitchen with a big walk... More

We stayed here before and after our Fraser Island tours and were generally really happy with our stay. The kitchen and lounge area is a great space, and the walk in fridge and free use of computers are great features. The rooms were all very clean and the receptionist staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful! The only big... More

Stayed here a couple of nights before heading to Fraser / K'Gari Island. In retrospect, the best part was probably the free re-usable grocery shopping bag (which is so sturdy I continued to use it throughout Australia and in South America many months later). ROOM: Average bunk beds in the dorm. Clean bathroom. Decent sleep quality. KITCHEN / DINING /... More

It is a very nice and cozy hostel. The staff is very friendly and felt very welcome here. It was a shame we only stayed there for a night before hopping onto fraser island. They have private parking available in their backyard. The rooms are big enough, clean and airconditioned. Ensuite bathroom with separate toilette is also very convenient. Brilliant... More

We only stayed the one night here but the hostel was brilliant. The rooms were clean and the facilities were really good. Washing machines, a cinema room, a pool, sofas and free breakfast. Possibly one of the best hostels ive stayed in. Also the staff were amazing. Very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The only downsides that I found... More

Thanks for your kind words reflecting everything we try to get right at Flashpackers. Apologies we did have some major issues over the last week with the internet supply to the hostel, one of those out of our control things which is now back up to speed and working well for all our guests and for our reception staff!
