Nice, clean well located hostel in a lovely small town on Sunshine Coast. Enjoyed my trip here, people were friendly and would love to visit back again in the future. Whole atmosphere here is very chilled, nice if your looking at a few days relaxing.

We didn't really know what to do when we arrived at the Sunshine Coast however the manager at the Backpackers was great and shared lots of great recommendations, printed maps and generally went above and beyond. Thanks James!
