I never write reviews, but this place deserves to be boycotted. For a standard, private room, you're paying $75 a night. That's all well and good, until you realize how completely underwhelming this place is. Let's start with the beds, So threadbare that you feel the individual springs poking you throughout the night. Furthermore, the night I slept there, it... More

We stayed here for one night, the location is excellent being close to beach, shops and restaurants. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The manager was helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

This hostel has been my home for a month or so. This place doesn't know what hygiene is. It's definitely a nice place where to meet people and have fun. Conditions of the structure are quite ok. The fridges, kitchen and equipment not good. If you are going to work in a farm around the area, choosing this hostel won't... More

I spent time here a few months back and It really did make a positive impact on my oz backpacking experience. The people that worked there or some that stayed awhile and worked there like myself really embraced and encouraged a community spirit of offered help and passing it on. All were welcome from the sun loungers, beach combers, long... More

We went to mooloolaba to meet some friends and chill for a few days. The backpackers is well located about 10 min walk from the esplanade. We had a private room which had it's own toilet, sink and shower. Then in the room we had a tv with cable and cabinet to keep all our stuff in. Kitchen is pretty... More

A very nice place, few minutes walk from the beach and shops and restaurants. The hostel offers all kitchen facilities, and the rooms and very nice and clean. They also offer free surfing boards so you can save money. Very cool place, management aims very friendly and helpful. A bit pricy but I guess like everywhere else on the Sunshine... More

This backpackers is just across from the bus stop so very convenient location and close to the beach and shops. Reception closes in the middle of the day for a few hours so be aware. You can use bikes for free and sign up for free stand up paddle board lessons. That was awesome! The first night I was there... More

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
