I've stayed in the Woolsheds for four nights in a basic room (shared bathroom). The place was really spacious and clean. The beach is quite close and you can also relax in the garden. The staff was very helpful and recommended me a great tour to Fraser Island. I really enjoyed my stay. Thanks!

I've stayed in the Woolsheds for three nights and it's been the best hostel I've been in Australia. It was very clean, very comfi and quiet. They really have a look for details and the staff is more than friendly and helplul! A really lovely place, which I would definately recommend!

Stayed here for three nights, as a friend and I booked a Fraser Island tour through the hostel. Upon arrival we found the owners Meg and Brent to be very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We stayed in the 6-bed mixed dorm, which was clean and well presented with plenty of space for storage (lockable cupboards and lockers available.) The communal... More

My wife and I stayed in this hostel for 2 weeks. We were in a basic room with no TV, and shared bathroom. The room had enough space, was clean and tidy. The showers, bathroom and kitchen were also clean and neat; no problem with hot water. We also did enjoy the garden, especially at breakfast and lunch time! Although... More

Glad we could be of assistance, helping you settle into your new life in Australia. Best of luck for the future! There is a Woolworths south of us app 2km away. But the one to the north by the Pialba Shopping Cent is only about 1km. More

Stayed here for 2 nights so that we could tour Fraser Island. I had stayed here 11 years ago and it was pretty much what I expected still. The accommodation was great value and their service was excellent. Recommending the right tour to go on (small group) and booking it for me in advance of my stay too. Overall it... More

So great to have repeat visitors, especially after a 11 year gap! Also fantastic to know we are still providing a quality experience to our guests after all these years... Yes, our knowledge of Fraser Island and it's tours are 2nd to none. We're not sitting in an office 100's or 1000's of kilometres away basing our opinions on how... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in a private room. Room was clean and cosy. Kitchen and lounge area was huge and really quirky! Toilets and showers kept spotless. Slept well but was woken up a few times by something scratching on the floorboards....think it may have been the resident possum. Wouldn't have liked to stay here... More

One of our resident possum's, 'bushy', is a bit active at the moment. She has another mouth to feed! We would like to take this opportunity to welcome the newest member of the Woolshed Team, 'little bushy'. Mum is doing well and coping with the sleep deprived days, while dad, we believe it's 'Graeme' is sadly nowhere to be seen...... More

I was in a room that was so close to the next that I could hear them using the toilet and talking on the phone. Also I got the feeling that I was a pain in regards to dealing with the owner. Also the "dorm" rooms are very small.

Appreciate the review. However we're thinking this guest may have us confused with another hostel. None of our 3 dorm rooms are next to any bathrooms. The closest is 2 rooms away... And we've never had a problem with the size of our dorm rooms. In fact, according to our permit/Lic we are able to put 2-4 more beds in... More

Stayed here for one night and sorted out parking for a few nights when we did trip over to Fraser Island. Great spot outside of the town so it was great and quiet - apart from some animal on our roof at 5am :-) . We wanted a quiet place so it was great for us - We also had... More

Thanks for the kind words. We believe one of the most basic elements of running a quality backpackers/hostel is being clean. It's one of our top priorities on a daily basis and is very much appreciated by our guests. To clarify our location. We are actually right in the middle of Hervey Bay, one block back from the beach.

Location, bed, staff helpfulness were all good. I had a car to do shopping - not sure about public transport. BBQ area can be a bit loud - but everyone was having fun (and I went to the Irish pub - walked) Will definitely stay again.

Thank you! There is a bus stop directly across the road and another 20m away on our side. One will take you all the way to the Marina and the other to the shopping cnt. BBQ is simply awesome... All electric for ease and no loss of eyebrows! BBQ and outdoor eating is the Aussie way and so much more... More
