After traveling around in Australia I have stayed at different hostels and I must say Caloundra backpackers was one of the best! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The room was clean and it was so nice having a private room. We stayed for two days during easter and had a great time. The sunday market was really good-... More

This hostel is by far the most chilled I've been in! There wasn't many people there... It's close to Australia zoo which is so worth seeing and the beach is lovely!! The hostel was clean but I thought it was quite expensive for what it was. You do get free wifi!!

This place is not safe or clean. I have stayed in many hostel / backpackers, so I understand what comes with staying at one. However when you book a single room with a door that does not lock do not lock, it is frightening when in the early hours of the morning men from the street are knocking on doors.... More

We stayed 1 night (meant to be 2 but couldn't bare it anymore) for Easter holidays as hotels were full.. The good: location. That's it. The bad: filthy showers covered with mould, soiled towels left on shower floor all day, broken shower heads, rotten curtains, the hostel in general is filthy and half-broken. Fridge out of order, a broken oven... More

I spent 2 nights at this hostel in a 4 share room. The room was clean and neat, it also had a desk which was great. Unfortunately there was no aircon, but no backpackers I've stayed in has ever had one so I'm cool with that. Bed was surprisingly comfortable. The showers were clean and there is space for you...

Its in a decent location, the rooms and bathrooms are pretty clean, the staff ae nice, the kitchen is okay and the social areas are nice. The issue we had is that there were a lot of middle aged people there, and they were nice but some of the men were a bit creepy... the rooms were tiny and the... More

As it happened we didn't stay......we booked and we went but we left, all within a short space of time. I'm not a person to moan but this place is deserved of my moaning. We arrived to find the hostel. In the parking area was someone repairing their car. Sat outside the hostel on a sofa which should be burnt,... More

well, where to start.. my friend and I thought it would be a great idea to buy food the first day we got there, the next day the food was off because the fridge broke (wasted $50) - they couldn't even be bothered to have a bloody sign up after this unfortunate accident to warn others about not using it....

Ok so we checked in if that's what you call it to a young girl who was sat out front with a gang of others drinking on the sofas she showed us to our room which when we got in we had a very squeaky bed and fan. Everyone seemed to be very clicky with each other and it seemed... More

Stayed at the hostel for 3 nights and it was OK-ish. Bathrooms are in need of a cleanup and refurbishment, showers grubby, no standup urinals for the guys in the toilets, and only 2 loo's to choose from. Kitchen also run down, fridges, oven, plates and utensils not in good condition, and room was OK but only a small fan... More
