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

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
