This is a great place to stay if you're in Rainbow. It does what it says on the tin, and the staff are super friendly. I genuinely don't understand the terrible and poor reviews on here, people need to remember they're staying in a HOSTEL. If you want everything to be perfect go pay more and stay in a hotel,... More

Good place for a few days, room are good and there is a nice pool and communal area. Free sandboarding and sunset walk is a good way to meet people. Only think that let it down was the shower on 2 occasions had literally a dribble of water so it was impossible to shower.

Let's start saying that when I checked in I was given a key that didn't open my room door and then I found out from my roommates that no other keys worked so basically every time we had to get into the room we had to hope for someone to open it from inside. I asked to change the room... More

Where do I start?!?...... My partner and I were going on the dingo's fraser island tour and didn't want to stay at the dingo's hostel as they don't have private double rooms, only 8 bed dorms, so we were recommended pippies beach house as it is right next door. We called up about 3 weeks before our stay and confirmed... More

We booked a 8 persons dorm but we got a 4 persons 'room'. We thought alright but we found out it was a tent in the frontyard (next to the kitchen and common area). There are two bunkbeds in this tent, not enough space for all your stuff. We went back to the reception and complaint about it. She said... More
