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

A short walk from the promenade and heart of noosa, this hostel is more suited for short term stayers, common area is roomy and spacious with books and games, rooms are a little congested, no aircon breakfast is not too bad... Staff are very good!

I was surprised to see my top bunk didn't have sides... ?! An old man who was living in the dorm said they are illegal, not sure how true that is. They advertise 4-6 people dorms but we was in an 8 person dorm, they definitely cram you in. The walls aren't finished. Just plaster board and terrible paint work.... More

Handy shuttle service the hostel throws on, as it's a touch out of the way (though close to a few restaurants and the river). Our double room was comfortable, though the plug socket was weirdly placed half way up the wall. Wifi was a bit of a shambles, fairly weak for most of our stay. The one bathroom and toilet... More

I'll start by saying the staff were very friendly and helpful, we was picked up free of charge from the coach station. However the hostel is so far out from everything! 15 Minuit walk too nearest shop and 40 min walk to the town or beach. They do run a shuttle service that stops quite early and doesn't run that...

I have stayed at dozens of hostels and this hostel, unfortunately, ranks with some of the worst ones. The good points are the shuttle - though it doesn't run as often as you would hope the shuttle to do - the staff seem friendly and there is bar (though as it is licensed there is no BYO and the bar...

This was my first hostel experience in Australia. I stayed here with a buddy about eight years ago. At the time this was a five-star backpacker hostel - complementary shuttle from the bus station and to the beach, free kayaks, renovated rooms and en suite bathrooms. The grocery store was close by and we ended up having great chats with... More

There was nothing great or anything terrible about this hostel. They will pick you up and drop you off at the coach station. The hostel is beside Noosa River, you can borrow kayaks during the day. It is far from the beach and main shopping areas. There is a free shuttle provided but this is runs around once and hour... More
