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.

My husband and I had an amazing time working here in exchange for accommodation. We stayed working here and living in the staff house for 4 weeks. It was great because you can be as involved with other travellers as you like or escape for a little down time if you want to. The hostle is very clean and all... More

My partner and I (both in our 20s) stayed here in July 2014 and I am sorry that it has taken me so long to write this review. The Aussie Woolshed is a really nice family run hostel. The guy who owns it, Brent, was super friendly and helpful. He recommended good places to go in Hervey Bay and answered... More

Very clean and welcoming but walls in the double rooms up in the what only I can describe as a tree house were very thin so we could hear EVERYTHING!

We only stayed in the Aussie Woolshed for 1 night but wish we had got to stay longer. This is an absolutely beautiful hostel on amazing grounds. You truly feel like you are in the middle of nature with still only being 5 minutes from the centre of Hervey Bay. The common area is fantastic, comfy sofas, tv, fooseball table,... More

When I arrived at Whoolshed I couldn't believe this is an hostel!!I've never seen a kitchen so clean, the common room is so comfortable and it seems made just to sit down and enjoy tv, or a book, or a game with friends. The bedroom (6 beds) was also very clean and spacious, with wardrobes you can lock. The garden... More

I had two very relaxing days in this cosy hostel. Nice and friendly stuff with a very comfortable living room. Unfortunately not a lot plates, knifes and forks.. I payed for a 6 bed dorm and I was upgraded to a 2bed dorm for 2 nights, that was brilliant. I definitely had a good stay there

We really enjoyed how quiet it was here. After staying in noisy hostels with nightclubs and bars it was so lovely to be somewhere so peaceful. It's only a few minutes walk to the beach & a few shops & restaurants. The owners were really friendly and happy to help any way they could
