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

We spent just one night there and it was raining all day but I would definitely go back to this hostel as our double room and the bathroom were clean and the common areas were really cosy. Staff was friendly. I assume the atmosphere is beautiful when the wheather is better as the pool is surrounded by large trees that... More

This hostel was fine. Definitely not the best, definitely not the worst. We stayed in a private room, deciding to share a double bed to avoid dorms. Kitchen equipment looked a bit sparse but 5 minute walk away there was a fabulous cafe which gives you free wifi when you buy their $10 meal (which was fab), reception staff pointed... More

I have 8 years of backpacking under my belt, in 6 of 7 continents and rarely find a bad word to say about a place. Pippies beachhouse is the first place that negatively impacted me enough to want to come online and stop anyone else from wasting their money, or more importantly ruining their trip. Run down, poorly constructed 'buildings'... More

We loved our stay and trip at Pippies beachhouse. The shared dorm accommodation was pretty basic and for the time of year we went it was also pretty cold- but a lot of fun. But for the mediocre accommodation I would be rating the overall stay as excellent. The staff were hilarious and helpful, kind and patient. The BBQ was... More

Went with Pippies for their Fraser Island 4x4 tour and had a great time. I would definitely recommend driving on Fraser if you have the chance to. We were able to see the Champagne Pools, Maheno Wreck, lakes etc with ample time available to take them in. I would say this tour is rustic compared to others. You will be... More

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
