A cozy hostel with a style of zen. It's great that they offer several kitchens and good wi-fi throughout the hostel but the whole place could be much cleaner. We saw a rat behind the fridge, a cockroach in a pot, a giant huntsman at the door and several different species of bugs in the bedroom. The staff was rude... More

I stayed 3 nights in this hostel. The hostel is just OK. The rooms are pretty small, but they have a nice open common area outside. Internet works really good, at least outside, not in my room. I just did not really like the atmosphere in this hostel, but that is just a feeling. People and staff are friendly enough... More

We arrived to Noosa and upon leaving the Greyhound we were pleased to see that the hotel offered a free shuttle service to and from town throughout the day. This was due to the fact that the hotel was away from the main hub of activity in a quiet residential area (about 3km). We arrived and after checking in, were... More

The hostel looks nice and clean but the staff is not very backpack-ish and not very enthousiastic. The 5 dollar charge to store your bags for the day after check out from the room is an easy way for them to earn some extra money. They encourage you to use resources with the environment in mind but on the same... More

I'll start by saying this hostel is in a good location for the beach but this seems to be the only positive thing i have to say!!! They have so many rules that it really spoils the experience. I have been travelling around australia for 17 months now and have never came across these kind of rules. 1. Firstly there... More

This is a lush hostel if you want a chilled friendly vibe. Don't be put off by all the rules on the walls. It's just to keep it quiet and chilled. Staff really friendly. The hostel is divided into apartments so it's really nice and social. In the evening everyone sits downstairs in the court yard and chats. Good shuttle... More

if you're looking at being in the heart of Noosa and living the party life style, this is not the place for you. It's the perfect place to chill out, pretty far away from everything however. It's also not particularly sociable as the hostel don't put on any events. We didn't mind because until now we had been at nomads... More

I stayed here because the place I wanted to go was booked. It turned out that this was a very relaxing place to go. The goon ban make it that there is no hard partying going on so if you are looking for that go somewhere else. The heavy Indian atmosphere in the decoration of the hostel create a very... More

It's an OK place, but nothing special. However as there's a limited amount of available beds in Noosa, they are bound to be booked out. The receptionist girl (dauther of the parents, who own the hostel) was resistent for any feedback or improvement ideas and didn't understand the difference between a formal complaint and feedback to improve the overall customer...
