I absolutely loved this hostel. It is clean and cosy with comfortable beds and pillows, big kitchen with good equipment. It is quite small which made it very easy to get to know the other guests and the atmosphere was just great. You feel very welcome by the staff and long stayers and it is easy to make friends.

What an absolute dump. My friend and I thought we would treat ourselves and book a double private room as a change from the dorms we had been staying in. I am glad we did this as I literally dread to think what the dorms would have been like. The communal area just outside the room smelt of urine and... More

This hostel is OK. It's clean, the bed are comfortable and the showers are good. Problem is it is out of the way, its a 30 min walk to beach and 40 min if you want to go to a pub. The hostel does provide a free shuttle bus but it stops running at 5pm. I stayed with my boyfriend... More

Stayed in a private room but shared bathroom, walls are very thin could hear people going to the toilet next door! Room was stuffy and breeze block walls so felt a little bit like a prison cell but did the job with a comfortable bed. Shower was good and clean, staff were helpful and left the key available when checking... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Noosa Backpackers for 2 nights and found it fairly average. It's a proper backpackers hostel! We stayed in a private double room and it was quite small and stuffy! Also there's a shared bathroom so had to wait my turn to get in there! It was also really noisy at night as the walls... More

I was picked up at the Greyhound/Premier bus stop with the free shuttle. This is advertised as the only hostel on the Noosa River so it's a bit away from the middle of town and the beach. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the grocery store and there are riverfront restaurants nearby. The dorm rooms have vaulted ceilings with... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my boyfriend in March 2015. The hostel itself was a little dated but had a decent restaurant attached and free wifi. There was a useful hourly shuttle to town and the beach however as it ended at 5pm we were pretty restricted to the hostel in the evenings, it was a 25 minute... More

Glad to say we only had to stay here for one night. Upon arrival the two women behind reception did not seem fussed we were there at all. It was if we had to prompt them and interrupt there awfully important conversation just to check in. After check in which was about 5:30 we got to our rooms which was... More
