I think some people are being a little too harsh on the hostel in these reviews. The location is a sticking point for many, while close to a beach it is also quite far away from anything f else of any significance. This is attempted to be remedied by I frequent shuttle services to town and the nearby supermarket/bus station.... More

We stayed at Dolphins twice on our east coast trip and loved it both times! First time we arrived we were shown to our Double room, It was spacious enough clean and had a decent sized TV and air con. The double rooms are separate from the main hostel which meant a quiet nights sleep! They have their own Kitchen... More

We did not enjoy this hostel at all!! The room was a joke with very thin partition between and you couldnt see the TV from the bed. The only window in the room was the front door, the place was very dirty especially the bathroom.

I had originally stayed at another hostel in Noosa, but due to a cyclone further up the coast we had to move due to all the rooms booking up. I really enjoyed my stay - the chilled, low key vibe was exactly what we needed after a few hectic days of trying to find transport or accommodation. The free wifi... More

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
