Much better than than nomads down the road. Air con in room , free wifi and amazing chill out areas a few minutes walk from the beach. Had to go to nomads after dolphin and can certainly say I really wanted go back . Also tv areas and kitchen areas for every 8 people. Recommend this place to anyone ,... More

Staff were friendly but the number of rules enforced at this hostel gave it a slightly unwelcoming feel. Also had some of our perfectly good food thrown out - a bit of common sense would go far! However, the hostel itself is reasonably clean and rooms have pretty decent air con!

Fantastic hostel with great staff. After staying in a few 'chain' hostels, Dolphins certainly does have charm and character. The hostel bus picked me up, and made sure they did all they could to help me out with arranging 2 extra nights stay as the travel company I booked a tour with was cancelled. (Saved me a lot of headaches).... More

The nice thing about this place is that the staff are really friendly, it's easy to meet other travellers, and it's a little out of Noosa itself so it's quiet too. Having said that the aircon in the rooms doesn't always work, and one bathroom between 10 people isn't great. Not sure I'd stay again

We recently had our third visit to Dolphin's in as many years and were disappointed with how the hostel has really lost its charm, mainly due to the owners who are clearly fed up with hosting backpackers. As a group of thirty-somethings staying in private rooms, we certainly weren't looking for a 'party hostel' however the level of rules placed... More

We stayed hear for 5 nights of torture that was a nightmare before we even arrived! We had been in contact with the hostel a couple of days before we arrived to arrange a pick up which we were assured would be there. When our greyhound bus pulled up we saw the pick up, got off and walked down abd... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and it really was not worth the high price ($90 a night for private room with shared bathroom). I also want to note we have been traveling for 5 months and have stayed at numerous hostels in S. America, Asia and Australia. Location: the location is the best part of the... More

Stayed here two nights. 5 minute walk to sunshine beach which if you ask me is much better than the main beach!. You can access the coast walk in the national park from the sunshine beach which was great and we carried on walking round to mIn beach!. Free bus shuttle to and from main beach and into town. So...
