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

I stayed here for one night while passing through the area. It is very old and run down. The room was extremely dirty and not well maintained. Damaged tiles made for an unsafe bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location is fantastic. With some improvements it would be 5 stars for sure.

I stayed here for 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm. The dorm was filthy with other peoples stuff all over. This obviously meant that nothing could be cleaned/had been cleaned recently. The bed was uncomfortable and creaky. The room lacked A/C and the small fan available did little to ventilate the room. The rest of the hostel was also... More

Hello Gandalfthepink, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at Mooloolaba Backpackers. Its unfortunate the experience you had was not pleasant. As you stayed in November 2013 it would be unfair of me to comment too much on the staff or general cleanliness. Since starting with the business at the end of March, I can... More
