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

This makes a massive... More

Paid $62 for a "deluxe room" (means it comes with a tv) on check in found the floor covered in wood shavings. Looks to have come from the ceiling. Later I was standing outside my room having a cigarette after a very long day when a female staff member drove past very slowly and yelled out the window to me... More

The place is very beautyful, with a lot of charm. I love the kitchen area and all its wooden furniture, and the hammocks in the central garden... My dorm was also very clean and with enough space for everybody ^^

We visited the Aussie Woolshed Backpackers before our trip to Fraser Island. As we arrived around 11pm and left around 5am we were happy that the team was able to provide us with a late check in and early check out service - for free. On other places it is not given that you get your key deposit back before... More

Loved every minute of my 2 weeks being here (booked on extra nights as I didn't want to leave). Not just the amazing gardens, extreme cleanliness, or the endless facilities (including wifi and a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom) but the staff were amazing. Always up for a laugh and just welcomed you in to their family, couldn't do enough... More
