I stayed her for one night before and after I went to fraser island. Brent was really nice and very accommodating because we were checking in later than the office hours and we checked out early in the morning on our way back from fraser island. He was lovely, friendly and made us feel like we were staying at a... More

My friends and I stayed at Woolshed Backpackers for 3 nights and we were quite surprise by the quality and cleanliness of our room, compared to the price we paid. We booked a triple apartment, which includes a double room, a twin room and an ensuite bathroom. The advantage of this hostel is that it's really close to the beach... More

We stayed for just 1 night in a double room. Nice gardens, Comfy foam mattress. Dated rooms. Our room was outside the gate at the front near the road, so quite a hike in the night to the only toilet block which was at the back. We were only provided with a top sheet, which was a little cool for... More

This hostel has everything: comfy beds, cool kitchen (outside cooking as well!), tv room, tours to Fraser Island, transfers, nice bathrooms, clean !, washing for four dollars and the best: hammocks! I loved my stay here. It is a bit far from the supermarket but close to the beach. Extra bonus are mosquitoes, but they cant help that!

Very nice relaxed atmosphere, located in lovely gardens. Felt like you were in a rainforest. Good amenities and close to everything. Quite rustic but nice to be able to watch a dvd at night in our room. Good cooking facilities, obviously set up for socialising with games and group pizza night. Friendly staff too. Maybe need more showers though

Has everything that you need for your stay in Hervey Bay, room was good size and the bed was comfy. The only down side to our room was there was a little circle window which you couldn't couldn't block out the sun in the morning, which wasn't the best to be woken up to after our 25 hour bus journey....

This is a great little hostel, very nice surroundings, clean rooms and communal areas and very friendly staff. Plenty of hammocks in the gardens to relax on! We chose to stay in a deluxe double room which was lovely, although slightly let down by the fact it was not a regular double bed but instead a double with single-bed bunk... More

The room was small and felt a bit closed in but at least it had the much needed air con!! mosquitoes are a pain in the area but that can't be helped. The staff here are amongst the best I have come across on my world tour over the last 12 months, and a free shuttle bus that takes you... More

Stayed just for one night, but what a lovely hostel! The room was spacious, extremely clean, soft sheets and even towels. The shower was big and worked well. The hostel is a ten minute walk from the beach and shops and restaurants. The kitchen and living area was what we liked most about this hostel. The kitchen was really big,... More

Booked two nights, stayed for four nights and could have easily stayed longer. The owners are genuinely nice and helpful people. The rooms and communal areas are very clean an nicely decorated. The garden is beautiful and a perfect place to relax. The hostel is close to the beach, pubs and restaurants and relatively close to big grocery stores(Woolworths and... More
