This is a superb YHA and very professionally run. High standards of cleanliness, relaxing rest areas, well maintained grounds. Camping ground is great, kitchen, showers and TV area as comfortable as home.

After looking at the list of van parks in Hervey Bay and their prices we were delighted to find this place. They have their prices advertised outside as you drive past- $24 for an unpowered site. We paid $20 as there was a June off peak special on. What a brilliant place to stay- so much better than the van... More

We booked here for just one nights stop over between work and found it to be the most beautiful place! The grounds are amazing - so much space with a gorgeous lake outside the bistro area. Ducks, chickens and even Peacocks roaming free! Not what we expected to see! There is a pool and spa just outside the bistro, and... More

I absolutly loved my stay here. It is a little in the middle of no where with a 20-30min walk to the nearest supermarket, but it is only a 10min walk to the beach which is perfect for fishing, the hostel also offer a free shuttle service that will pick you up from the Coach station. There is a harbour... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night after returning from Fraser Island. We booked a 'budget double' room which only cost £31 through hotels.com - so to be fair we were not expecting a great amount from this place. To list the positives first, there is free parking and the food in their bistro was very nice and... More

We stayed here the night before and after our Fraser Island tour. We booked a private room and we really enjoyed it. Would totally stay here again. It has a nice outdoor feeling to it with birds running outside and the team at reception was really nice and were very helpful Only downfall was the internet didn't work.

Booked a twin room was very cheap for the Easter Long Weekend. Had two beds and ceiling fan. Great for sleeping curtains blocked out all sunlight. Had a share kitchen and bathroom. Kitchen and Bathroom were very tidy and clean. Did have a bistro but we did not eat there. Very close to the beach just about a 100 metre... More

This is a mediam scale hostel. The rooms are good but not great. The kitchen is clean and enough space to cook. We slept in a double room, it was very small and hot. Overall the whole place was abit messy. Also the dining area closes around 9.30. This is abit early. There is free wifi and free PC's to... More
