We stayed for 3 nights here, originally it was meant to be 2. The place itself is quite small and more quiet and relaxed than some of the hostels I have been too I think the lack of onsite bar fueling the noise and atmosphere are the reason. It has a decent size and comfortable open plan kitchen and lounge... More

Warick2013, Owner at Flashpackers Hervey Bay, responded to this review

Thanks for the response, and yes the free coffee and tea we provide does tend to stain one area in the kitchen, we endeavour to stay on top of this! I suppose I can only say that we are all individuals and have different expectations. As you said we provide FREE unlimited wifi (unfortunately when you stayed we did have... More

My plan was to stay in this hostel for a little while, my money was low so i've worked here for accomodation. At the end i've stayed here 5 or 6 weeks. It's amazing. The staff does everything for you. If you have a problem or something, they always help you on a friendly way. The owners comes regular into... More

The hostel facilities here are good- kitchen was clean and breakfast was free. The communal area was comfy and spacious and a nice pool. I was disappointed with the private en suite room. It was seriously tired and worn. The worst thing was the lack of air con. The fan was just pointless- it did nothing!! The temperature in the... More

We have been travelling from Sydney up to Cairns and stayed here for 1 night prior to going to Fraser Island. We stored our bags here for the Fraser Island trip - $2 for 3 days- amazing price! The staff (owners) are friendly and extremely helpful and the first hostel we have stayed in where the pictures online actually match... More

I travelling solo around Australia so have stayed in a lot of hostels. This one is great! It has the best kitchen/communal area I've seen with an air-conned cinema room a lovely outdoor pool and a terrace. The owners are the loveliest people ever and really make an effort to make it a home from home. They are extremely accommodating... More

This place is heaven. I arrived here after a long journey, tired, on a rainy morning and I was welcomed with a warm "welcome to paradise" by the people behind the reception and a free breakfast and warm coffee. The place has a large communal area and kitchen and a walk in fridge to store your food. The terrace and... More

The hostel is average sized with a pool and kitchen/washing facilities. Free breakfast and friendly staff made arriving after a 24hr bus much more bearable. The rooms were clean, no air con though just a fan. The owner and staff were really friendly. Used the washing machines, however things came out with stains they hadn't gone in with so perhaps...

We stayed at Flashpackers while waiting for our Fraser Trip to start and were really happy with it. The owner is a really outgoing and friendly guy, trying to talk us out of hitchhiking along the coast to make sure we're safe but still supporting us in finding the perfect route. He was really personal with all the guests and... More

From the start we had a lovely stay. The owner is such a nice enthousiastic person where you feel welcome from the very first minute. When we arrived (in the evening) we also had a free cheese and wine night, which was nice to meet all the people in the hostel. Such a great initiative from him! Then he also... More

The kitchen facilities were good and they provide breakfast each morning and bbq dinner on a friday night (all free). The rooms were a bit tired but they were fine. A close walk to the beach and cafes/restaurants
