Nice and clean hostel! Close to the beach, lovely staff and an overall good stay for backpackers. They allowed us to shower off even after checking out before we got our greyhound bus which was so kind of them and great for us! Reccomend to stay here!

Came with two friends to pippies before the tour of Fraser Island which was definitely one of the most special things I'll ever do. We had Gas as our tour guide who completely made the trip what it was. He made us all feel like a family and took us to the most incredible places. Couldn't think of a better... More

Stayed here and did the Fraser tag along tour and we had gas as our guide! He was what made the tour so special for all of us. He would take us to the remote spots where all the other tours don't go and would try and get us to the popular places first before everyone else arrived. He was... More

First of all the tag along tour was one of the greatest things I ever did in my life. The island is just beautiful and behind every corner there is something new to discover. Especially Gas, our tour guide made this trip unforgettable! We stayed in the hostel the night before and two nights after the tour and it was... More

We went on Brett's tour on the 31st. It was absolutely brilliant. We had 4 4WDs with eight people in each, with the tour guide and a few extras I think we were a personal group of no more than 35. A perfect size. We visited Lake Mackenzie, a Rainforest and the ship wreck on the first day, with a... More

We stayed at Pippies a night either side of the Fraser Island tag along tour. We arrived at Pippies and met up with everyone going on the tour itself, there was 24 of us in total. We had a 4 bed room with 2 bunk beds both nights we stayed there, the rooms were clean and they both had air-con... More

Rainbow beach only has a couple of hostels and I wouldn't be sure if Pippies is the best choice. Possibly not the worst either. Good points: - Right beside the Premier Bus & Greyhound bus stop (although all the hostels are). In general, a very good location; - Basic free breakfast; - Somewhat reliable wifi near in common areas. Bad... More

Rainbow Beach is tiny with only three hostels so not much choice. They're all right by the Greyhound stop and beach. Check in wasn't very informative and the sunset sand blow 'tour' wasn't on, you just had to go on your own. There was also confusion with other people checking in the wrong rooms so people were in and out... More

Brett was great guide... More
