I am very disappointed with my booked tour to Fraser Island and my stay at the YHA in Hervey Bay. However, I have upgraded my deal with accommodation on Fraser Island they were not aware of this and this was not possible. I declare this at the reception of the YHA on the day of my departure (7: 00hrs), with... More

We are travelling with a camper trailer and wanted somewhere to camp away from the caravan crowd. This place is a find. The camping area is shady with some grass. No sites, just find a spot. Mainly backpacker vans as this is YHA establishment. The bar and bistro are a nice spot to relax with cheap beers and food. Great... More

We stayed in a double room for a night before and 2 nights after Fraser Island. As with most hostels in Hervey bay, you expect them to be just that; quiet places to stay before your louder trips to the island. That's what you get; really clean rooms, clean kitchens, a nice small pool. Also some really cheap drinks and... More

We arrived after reception hours and followed our instructions to get our key. We were greeted with a less than friendly reception staff member who was just locking up and despite us reassuring her that we knew that we were after hours insisted on taking us (grumpily) through the check in process. The bistro staff were very obliging in making... More

We booked here as another close by van park was full, not disappointed though as that looked very crowded. This is a YHA that has powered (8 sites only) plus non powered on a large block of land, plus many cabin types. We booked a powered site which was fine for our motorhome. The checkin was slow due one staff... More

Wow .... it is a YHA, motel, campground and caravan park. Friendly efficient check in, loads of tour information for Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. There is also a bar / bistro on site. I was given a 'free drink' voucher .... ? maybe because I was a YHA member ?? Meals in the bistro were ? $10 to $14... More

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.
