Pippies is a pretty laid back hostel with a cool outside chilling area and reasonably well equipped kitchen. The staff were generally super friendly, especially Jess, and were more than happy to have a chat. I stayed in two different rooms, both 4 shares and both clean and comfortable. The TV room (with original playstation!!) was nice and usually had... More

We loved our private double room! The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was big with a bath and a shower. The breakfast was basic- toast and jam, but what can you expect for a price like that. We left our luggage in their storage room but didnt feel it is very safe because it is not right by the... More

I recently stayed for 2 nights in Pippies before going on a Cool Dingo tour of Fraser Island. We couldn't have picked a better hostel, the location was ideal and easy to find and upon arrival we were checked in by a lovely girl who had a vast amount of knowledge about the area and was only too keen to...

Here are our quick positives and negatives of the stay: Pros: *Our room was amazing, large and with a shared balcony with the other double room on the floor. *Bathroom was only shared with one other couple and was large *Very clean *Facilities are great with...

Kitchen was clean and tidy and rooms were some o the cleanest I had seen. Sorry reviews so late still haven't forgot how... More

Stayed here for 3 nights total in two different 4 bed dorms. The hostel and rooms were at an acceptable level of cleanliness but could definitely be cleaner. One of my rooms was right by the kitchen and so was very noisy in the morning. The noise would also start very early as people were preparing to head to Fraser... More

Rang to check that it was okay to check in late, we were assured that it would be fine and was just told to ring the number. We attempted to call the number for 30 minutes before asking another guest if they knew of any staff members around. We then had to walk over to one of the pubs to... More

I have been staying at Pippies for two nights this year. It is a small nice Hostel. The kitchen and bathrooms are good and tidy, you have everything there what you need. But the rooms, I have been in an eight bed dorm, are really small. There is not even enough space for all the backpacks so it is also... More

Loved my stay here had such a cool vibe and homely feeling, not even like a hostel more like a b&b. there's a lounge with a hard drive with a ton of movies for free and everyone just seemed really nice and chatty. nice and clean and helpful staff, highly recommend it.

Definitely recommended for Fraser Island Tour and if you want a friendly, happy place to stay. Great tour of Fraser Island (2 nights). Danny was a really cool, knowledgeable and organised leader. Beautiful scenery, swimming opportunities in boatloads and loads of wildlife seen, including whales, eagles and dingos, of course! Camp is well set up and amazingly hot showers! Everyone... More
