Great people, cleaning staff does a good job, good accommodations. No complaints. If your young and looking for a good time this is definitely a spot to hit up while in the sunshine coast. It beats the other hostels in the surrounding area

It's a good stay, and the staff at reception are beyond great. The kitchen that is provided on each floor is too small for the amount of people it has to hold, and that goes with the fridges as well. It's overall a quite dirty place, even though you see staff clean it. The staff who cleans and works for... More

The apartments could be filthy and you can't move around easily when you have to think about staying clean all the time. There's no free wifi that me and a friend thought were included. The wifi was very expensive. But, you can rent a bike and surf board for free which is good. Free breakfast. the check out is at... More

Barry and Linda are the new managers of this place, and they are turning the place around! Great clean beds, safe at night and convenient free breakfast. Also heaps to do there including a pool, pool table, tv, board games and communal kitchens. Overall a super pleasant stay!

At the moment my favourite hostel in Queensland. Could use a few improvements but very worthwhile for a short term stay. The beds are comfortable, there is a great common area, the staff are knowledgable and very willing to help you, and there's a kitchen/common room on every floor so it doesn't get too busy. The pool is also well... More

I had an amazing time here! The facilities here are outstanding, free surfboards, bodyboards bikes and the best thing the FREE STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING! The instructor was outstanding! A company over the river charges $25 per hr. Mooloolaba is a little hidden gem that a lot of people miss out on. The backpackers is situated about 700 meters from... More

Short walk (700m) to the beach and shops (Boutique shops and restaurants and other accommodation and even car hire). Lots of restaurants 100m away. Lots of activities happening on the beach. Nice beach with lifeguard. Can watch beginner surfers doing their thing in the morning or have a dip in the Pacific Ocean yourself. Good covered places to seat and... More

The hostel is decent enough, the room I was in was clean and bright. The free breakfast was a bonus as I didn't know about this before booking. Mooloolaba is a gorgeous little town with a stunning beach and is definitely worth a visit. The only downside to the hostel, in my experience was the tiny kitchen (I think there... More

It's strange to see some negative reviews here…. this place is definitely not dirty at all! I heard it's newly renovated so maybe that's why I am giving it a 5-star rating! Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and toilets, free bike and surfboards hire… and you can book a FREE stand up paddle boarding session! The instructor was great... More
