We loved staying here! Such a great place for a chilled few days by the beach. Room was nice and clean and the bed was comfy. Staff were helpful and all amenities were very clean! Just one small thing it would have been nice if there were a few more spoons in the kitchen. Will be back here again on... More

I believe a wife and husband run this place. Both were extremely helpful and pleasant to me regarding tour, flight, and bus-to-the-airport information. The site itself is sort-of nice, though, being a backpackers' joint, it can be noisy, depending on who's in the room next to you. Earplugs are advised for those who need quiet at night.

Really great place to stay short or long term...very clean kitchen with everything you need...peaceful surroundings in tropical garden with hammocks...the owners are extremely nice. Had the best nights sleep because it's quiet.

Woolshed is a good hostel, nice staff. Everything is clean. The beds are pretty okey aswell. Good kitchen, barbeque area outside. Cool outside under the palmtrees to chill out. I felt safe there. Big dorm rooms. Even a own bathroom in the 8bed dorm! The only thing..no airconditioning :-( so hot in the rooms at night.

We stayed at the Woolshed backpackers before and after our visit to Fraser Island and were satisfied. The rooms were clean and large. The manager was very friendly and helped us booking a whale watching tour. The hostel doesn't operate a shuttle service after a certain hour (I think 7 pm) but this ended up not being a problem as...

I stayed here for 2 nights, one before, and one after my Fraser Island tour. Very clean rooms, clean bath rooms as well. Also a free drop off at the bus stop early in the morning. Very nice staff, also the kitchen was very clean. Only thing that wasn't really working that well was the Wi-Fi, but then again, it... More

It has great facilities: a well equipped kitchen, an outdoor bbq , tv, wide range of dvds, laundry, book swap, nice garden, hammocks.... Staff are helpful and welcoming. Hostel... More

We stayed here both before and after our Fraiser Island tour in a private double room. Hotel is easy walking distance from restaurants and supermarkets. We were leaving in the middle of the night to catch an overnight bus. Manager was very accommodating- he organised a taxi to collect us and made arrangements for us to leave the key. Great... More

Stayed in a double, which was very clean and cute with telly and comfy bed. The air con is optional extra which we didn't realise before we went (extra $5 a day) although they do provide a fan. Only a short walk from the beach and about 15minute walk to the nearest Woolworths, The staff on the desk were great,... More
