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...

We stayed at Dolphin's for two nights and really enjoyed our time there. The staff were really helpful with booking our Fraser Island and Whitsundays Package for us and found us a great deal! The hostel was a little noisy at night, but we didn't mind. Great access to the beach and makes a fantastic walk up to Noosa National... More

Nice and relaxed hostel. Stayed in a 4 bedroom and was basic but good. wifi was great and haven't seen it better or faster anywhere else! The bathroom and kitchen are ensuite and you share it with one other room. the seats outside are great for meeting other people. the hostel itself is near the noosa national park. There are... More

I stayed at Dolphins for 2 nights and had a great time! I slept in a 4-bed dorm room that was basic but clean. The staff were really friendly and often helped out with directions and advice whenever I went up to them. Wifi is super strong and that really helped me as I do freelance work on my laptop....

Located at a quiet area, but is within walking distance to Sunshine beach and provides shuttle buses to and from noosa junction. There are kitchens for every 2(?) rooms, which is a nice feature compared to usual backpackers' shared kitchen. Not the newest looking backpacker but there is a nice feel to it.

Stayed here for one night in a five bedded dorm. The hostel is clean and quiet. The wifi connection is very good. We did our washing there and they were the best washing machines we have come across in any hostel..usually stains are left but not here. The only downfall was that the bathroom and shower were shared by ten... More

I loved staying at dolphins. I am travelling around the world and dolphins is one of the best hostels I have stayed in so far. We had a double room and had booked shared bathroom but as it was off season we got upgraded to an en suite. It looked like it had been recently refurbished and was incredibly spacious... More

Very nice and helpfull staff, they wont let you sleep at outside :) Quiet location. Near controlled the Sunshine Beach. Room and kitchen were ok, five persons including me in same room. You share the kitchen with 9 other people. This is not a party hostel! :) Pros: close to the Noosa National park, free wifi access, free courtesy bus,... More
