If you are looking for aircon don't come here. Falsely advertised on their website which didn't give a good first impression. Next we were stood at reception for 5 minutes waiting for the 2!!!!!! Female staff more interested in finishing their fags. Other staff just weren't helpful and forgot about my queries minutes after they had left me to deal... More

Ŵe originally booked to stay only 2 nights but ended up there for 3. The lady on reception (Karen I think her name was) was very friendly and helpful. We had booked a stay on Fraser Island at the kingfisher resort for 1 night and thought that would give us enough to see of the island - she convinced us... More

Quite a way from the esplanade, although there isn't much there anyway! Shared kitchen dirty and full of flies. Bed ok, sheets nice n fresh. Decent en suite bathroom in 4 share. Nice pool and communal area. Bar closes by 11pm.

Our room was clean, and big enough for 4 people, and its a good place to stay if you wanna go to Fraser Island. I was satisfied with this accommodation till the checkout: I realized one/ two hours after the checkout that I forgot my shampoo/conditioner and my phone charger in the room. So I told the reception and I... More

We had a great time in Hervey Bay and this hostel was a good place to stay. I particularly enjoyed the pool and bar area, where we spent plenty of time relaxing. The meals were good and very reasonably priced as were the drinks. We ate here every night as it was just to comfortable to move anywhere else! We... More

I stayed at Colonial Village for two nights. Reception staff were friendly and welcoming, and the grounds look lovely. The room was small but had a fan and two beds, which was really all we needed. The mattress was not very comfortable, and when removing the linen, the mattress cover looked like it had not been washed in a fair... More

I stayed at the Colonial Village YHA for 4 nights in October 2013. I had a single room which just had a bed in it, but was perfectly adequate, clean and comfortable. The shared bathrooms were clean and I never had to wait for the showers. The staff were friendly and helpful and can advise and arrange all sorts of... More

We really enjoyed our short stay at the hostel. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were really clean and the rooms comfortable. I would recommend getting a smaller room instead of the big dorm, since you can't lock it and it did not look really comfortable. There was always someone at the reception and the staff was really helpful. The restaurant/bar... More

This lovely hostel is set in some beautiful gardens in a quiet area in Hervey Bay. Perfectly situated to go whale watching (the staff gave me great advice as to which tour operator to use for the time of year) which is Hervey Bay's biggest draw. The Neptune's Reef Aquarium is also worth a look if you fancy feeding sea... More
