I stayed at the Woolshed for 4 nights in total and really enjoyed my stay. The place is really clean and really well looked after. Its a really chilled out hostel, not the most social place I have stayed in but if you just want somewhere clean, quiet and somewhere to relax its perfect! Close to the beach, there are... More

Thanks for your feedback. We've noticed that since we've starting offering free wifi guests don't seem to interact with each other as much as they used to when they had to pay for it, as they're busy trying to use there 500mb of data which is allocated for a 2 night stay. We have 2 budget dorms without a/c option... More

Very nice and CLEAN hostel. The owners were super nice and even came to pick us up when the bus from the Fraser Island company forgot about us. Spacious bathrooms, nice rooms, good beds. Cosy kitchen/living room. Reception not always open.

We stayed here for 2 nights. This is a clean and pretty centrally located hostel but seriously lacks atmosphere. Don't stay here if you want people to speak to each other! The owners were not that friendly and the reception is hardly ever manned which means you have to search for anyone should you have a question. Also, they literally... More

Were sorry to hear your experience at Woolshed didn't meet your expectations. Unfortunately the personalities of our guests is beyond our control. During peak period we work long hours to ensure the running of the hostel is maintained to a high standard. There is someone in reception from 7am to 11am and 4pm to 7pm everyday during school holidays and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights at this lovely hostel. The staff and owners were really helpful. We booked our Fraiser Island tour last minute with the hostel ad everything was made easy. The owners kindly offered to drop us off at the bus station and let us use the facilities whilst we waited. Everyone staying at the... More

We spent two nights at Woolshed backpackers. This is a nice cluster of little wooden houses. The vegetation decoration in the garden is very peaceful. Overall it is a quiet place, despite the thin bedroom partition. I recommend this place.

We booked this hostel last minute and arrived in the middle of the night after reception was closed. The woman I spoke to earlier in the day, left our keys, directions, and everything we needed in their mailbox so we could check in late. She was very helpful again with our questions the following morning. The bathroom was nice and... More

The hostel is really beautiful and has great rooms. It's absolutely clean and the staff is really friendly. They are really helpful with trips to Fraser Island even if already booked with other companies.

The hostel has a beautiful garden and a very relaxed atmosphere through it rooms, social places and the hammocks. In addition the owners Megan and Brent are very friendly and help you with everything you need to get organized for your travel. A very good choice to stay :-)!

Beautiful location. So chilled out. Perfect place to stay before hitting Fraser island. Just what I needed after driving all the way from Sydney! Megan and Brent really went to extra mile. Definitely will come back again on my next visit.
