The staff here are outstanding. The helped me with all my problems during my stay here, very friendly and creating an easy going laid back environment. Rooms and showers are very clean, kitchen has everything you need to cook up a storm and the garden is laid out in a relaxed way with a few hammocks to swing in. Would... 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

We stayed for just 1 night in a double room. Nice gardens, Comfy foam mattress. Dated rooms. Our room was outside the gate at the front near the road, so quite a hike in the night to the only toilet block which was at the back. We were only provided with a top sheet, which was a little cool for... More

This hostel has everything: comfy beds, cool kitchen (outside cooking as well!), tv room, tours to Fraser Island, transfers, nice bathrooms, clean !, washing for four dollars and the best: hammocks! I loved my stay here. It is a bit far from the supermarket but close to the beach. Extra bonus are mosquitoes, but they cant help that!

Very nice relaxed atmosphere, located in lovely gardens. Felt like you were in a rainforest. Good amenities and close to everything. Quite rustic but nice to be able to watch a dvd at night in our room. Good cooking facilities, obviously set up for socialising with games and group pizza night. Friendly staff too. Maybe need more showers though

Has everything that you need for your stay in Hervey Bay, room was good size and the bed was comfy. The only down side to our room was there was a little circle window which you couldn't couldn't block out the sun in the morning, which wasn't the best to be woken up to after our 25 hour bus journey....
