We stayed as a couple in Noosa for two nights, luckily we didn't get the "staff room" that other couples had complained about in previous reviews, but were given a room in the building where the laundry is. The room was quite standard, bed, walls, two windows (one boarded up for reasons we weren't quite sure of), and a small... More

At last a good nights sleep. Great hostel with everything you need, the free shuttle bus picked me up and dropped me off in time for my greyhound bus and also offered courtesy runs to the main beach and noosa national park. I certainly got my value for money as i was able to take the free kayaks onto the... More

I stayed 3 days at Noosa Backpackers Resort in a 6 bed dorm call Stardust, everyone had a locker with power point, the room was very clean with high ceilings, cool and quite.

Stayed one night only. Complimentary shuttle bus into town, food available in the evening (I had fish and chips), cafe in front of the backpackers where you can have breakfast or you can use the kitchen, although you have to put a deposit down for a bag of plastic crockery/cutlery, which feels a bit naff. TV room attached to kitchen... More

Thank you for your review of your experience with Noosa Backpackers. All reviews are important for the management of the facility. There is in fact no deposit on cutlery/crockery so i am unclear where this perception came from. The only deposit is for the key upon check in and that covers all items after that point. As with all travel... More

We were just there for one night. After half an hour in my bed I was feeling kind of bites and could not sleep, when I turned my light on to check what it was, I had around 20 bed bugs crawling next to my head, and there were far more all along the bed. I went out of the... More

It is with much regret that your experience was and memory of Noosa is tarnished by obvious bites. The staff representative obviously failed to act with the compassion you were seeking. However in 20 years I have never seen bites to appear like yours as a result of bed bugs. The appearance and the symptoms are copybook sand fly bites.... More

Great location and facilities ! However, for HYGIENIC & SAFETY reasons I would not recommend Noosa Backpackers Resort. Our room was a true bed bugs playground. Poor crisis management the next morning from the manager in charge. Ask for a free-bed bugs room upon arrival if you still want to go there and meticulously check your backpack once you left,...

I fully understand your support for your friend. Yes, the matter could have been handled better however things were a little misguided in the facts by the hysteria. I feel for the victim of the bites but one must put the obvious here. The bites and welts shown in the photos are obvious sand fly bites from the day leading... More

I had a lot of time for this hostel as I am the sort of person that can't handle an unclean place, and this definitely was clean. Staff were great and wifi was good too. Rooms more than adequate. Has reallly nice outdoor space.
