Woolshed backpackers is a great place to stay for anybody in the Hervey bay area. The hostel differentiates in a couple of ways from most. First of all the overal cleanliness of the place. Everything is clearly looked after. The kitchen both inside and outside are clean and a breeze to use. Same goes for the showers, bathrooms and of... More

Next time I come to Hervey Bay I stay definitiv again in the woolshed hostel, why? Because it has a wonderful garden where you can relax, many different rooms ( sometimes with TV sometimes with own bathroom ), a kitchen with everything you need ( includet coffee, tee and sugar), a bbq in the garden, only five min. walk from...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay from start to finish. The Woolshed is a great place to chill out in Hervey Bay - the rooms are a good size, the communal space is excellent and the kitchen is never too busy. They've also got a lot of shady outdoor space to relax in, with a big BBQ, hammocks and sun loungers.... More

Clean, Good staff, Nice garden. Good for a Fraser Island base or just a stop off on the coast. Good location, right by the beach. Offering Fraser Island tours Hervey Bay itself doesn't have alot going on but if you stop there, Wool Shed is a good choice.

Just got there and the welcoming was sooo warm. Megan & Brent are so nice all the time. Got a lot of help from them to get to Fraser, and the hostel is just the bust I've found in the Eastern Aussie Coast so far. Clean, worth the price. Guys, I'll be back!!!

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
