At arrival the location is just perfect! Opposite of the greyhound station and in between two stopping centres. they advertise to have a free guided walk to the sanddune but after waiting for 30 minuts in front of reception we were told after asking there was no guide and had to do it ourselves (not a problem if they would...

I stayed at Pippies for two nights and found the amenities to be good, beds comfortable and our room had enough space. It was generally clean and tidy except for the few times other guests did not dry and out away their dishes, which is no fault of the establishment. My main problem with this backpackers is that despite having... More

I booked a package for their 3D2N Fraser Island tour and it was simply awesome! Can't thank Denny more for being an amazing guide. I was lucky to have a super fun group and we had fun times going around various sites in Fraser and making the best of our nights/times in the rain. Pippies itself is a nice, chill... More

I have been in Oz for 5 months and I can say this 3 day tour was easily the best experience so far. Big thanks to Brett for being an absolute beauty... Your laid back nature and easygoing humor really made the trip a good time for everyone. Fraser is a beautiful place, and each day is definitely lived to... More

Very quiet due to lots of tours to Fraser Island. Wifi signal only good by the pools but not the room, but it is free. Alcohol allowed and laidback on the noise levels. Personally my friend and i think it completely depends on the people we meet - we had a great time as we met a good group of... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as we waited to go to Fraser Island. We paid a little extra for a private room upstairs with a balcony, which I would definitely recommend as you only have to share your bathroom with one other room. Kitchen was large and clean and there was free toast and spreads for breakfast which was good.... More

I arrived at Pippies on the 7.40am premier. The bus stop was literally across the road- only a few footsteps away. I was immediately made to feel welcome and was offered free toast and jam for breakfast and free tea/coffee. Nice to be able to have this whilst watching TV (I'd not seen the news for weeks!) My room was... More

For a cheap hostel, it ticks all the boxes of being budget - rooms and bathrooms in need of a bit of a face lift but if you are not bothered by such things then this hostel is probably a good one to pick. In my opinion, I found the hostel rooms to be small, run-down and, our room in... More

We only planned to stay here for two nights but we've been for a week now and don't have any plans to move on yet!! The staff here are friendly, helpful and genuinely make you feel like a part of a family away from home. The facilities are amazing for what you pay. Free sand blow tours and free paddle... More
