I recently stayed with a friend whilst travelling up the east coast. Thought it was a brilliant place to stay; clean, friendly and a great atmosphere. Had everything we needed and well situated within walking distance of the supermarket and beach. Owned by a couple who were extremely helpful from local knowledge to booking all kinds of tours. They rearranged... More

This hostel is particularly warm and welcoming, like the owners and the staff! They are available if you have any questions or if you want to book a tour or rent a vehicle. This place is a replica of an Aussie woolshed, consisting of 3 buildings that surround a large garden with hammocks and BBQ, that gives a general ambience... More

I came with my family and we shared a room with a nice backpacker. Everything was clean, and the hostel was quiet. Very good place to stay, close to restaurants and city center. The garden is lovelly and the kitchen tidy.

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

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.
