We stayed here for 3 nights on our way down the coast, the hostel is pretty dirty, the kitchen has food and pans sitting around. Our 'surfers room' had ants all over , climbing up the windows next to 1 one of the bunk beds. It didn't feel very welcoming and place needs a huge revamp and insect extinguish! Would... More

Clean Basic Level accommodation- furnishing were very dated however the unit is right on the edge of the Beach reserve. Sleeping accommodation on the first floor approximately 15 steps . Not much likelihood of older people enjoying the stairs. Not appropriate for young children - because of stairs also. No tea or coffee provided so you should be prepared to... More

We stayed in a double room, which was lovely and with a balcony! Price was ok, the room was clean, the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner (shower), but was alright! It was a pleasure to stay here, especially after the uncomfortable nights in the tents on fraser! The kitchen was well equipet, but it would be nice if... More

We stayed here for one night either side of our Cool Dingos trip to Fraser Island (excellent by the way). Having read the other reviews our expectations were low and our experience matched this. Our double room was not very clean (stains on sheets not removed from washing, lost bra under the bed etc). Right outside the window was a... More

Whilst the beach unit was clean the beds were old, creaky and very poorly sprung. Great if you like to wake up feeling like a banana but not good for anything else. (This is of course if you got any sleep) Then you can look forward to the morning shower that is little more than a warm dribble followed by... More

Hi PomRoys, Thankyou for your review and the notification about the single beds, Usually we only have children sleeping in these, so will check them out and replace if needed. The towels I have just checked and are pretty standard for budget accommodation, they are also dried in the dryer so not sure how they became scratchy. I will also... More

Only spent a night here after coming back from a Fraser Tour. The hostel have everything you need of you're a backpacker. The free WiFi was surprisingly good and the free breakfast was nice (toast with peanut butter/jam and coffee/tea). The room (8 beds) was a bit small, but it didn't really bother me since it was one night. Location... More

Didn't suit our needs. When we checked in they said they'd either need a twenty dollar cash deposit or my ID. I had no cash on me so I just thought I'd show them my ID to satisfy them. But when I asked for it back they said no they were keeping it until we checked out and showed them... More

Hi and thankyou for your review. We are a backpackers hostel and as we don't take guests credit card details like a hotel would, we take a $20 deposit for the key so that it is returned to us, this is pretty standard in all hostels around the world. Some of the rooms have names, like Sunshine, Moonbeam, Cartoon &... More

We had a great time on the Frazer Island trip! Also great you get one night free before and one night after the trip at the hostel!! Our tour leader Brett was the best, he taught us so much about the island! Great campsite and so much fun! Would 100% recommend this trip to everyone! One of the best parts... More

Really chill place to stay with a good vibe. The kitchen was a decent size and the bunks fairly comfortable. Bathrooms were a little dirty but good size. Nice outdoor picnic table area with hammocks. Overall fun place to stay.
