Worse hostel we've stayed at in Australia. I know it's cheap but simple cleanliness is not hard to achieve. We stayed in a double room. On both rooms they had dirty floors, hairs all in the shower and sticky furniture. The sleep was ok as we were tired from trips and travelling. However the bedding didn't seem thoroughly cleaned.

Staff friendly and helpful. Terrible otherwise. Furniture in common room all tore and worn. Floors in room clean but worn and looked horrible. Bed had plastic cover on and sag in middle of double therefore uncomfortable and noisey. Pancake breakfast ok. Kitchen terrible, clean but looked horribly old and not many utensils. Whoever owns this hostel need to spend money... More

Our first hostel experience but was told this was better than some others. Couldn't have been happier to find we had a private room! An average night at this hostel whilst we travelled the east coast and they put on a very good Fraser island tour which I'd highly recommended

Stayed here a night on either side of the Fraser Island tour and as it was low season we doubled up with Dingos hostel. It was obvious from the beginning that we had the raw end of the deal. The rooms were acceptable but with 10 people arriving back from the island and one shower per room it was crowded... More

Worst hostel ive stayed at in Oz. Stayed either side of my Fraser Island trip. Think most people get free nights with the trip so they clearly haven't spent money on the place in years. Common areas are dull with no atmosphere and constant rap music playing - even during breakfast. Kitchen has no equipment - not even cutlery or... More

The hostel was filthy. I had to stay here for two nights unfortunately, and I had a friendly local cockroach both nights, though I managed to catch and kill the blighter on the second night. The walls had mould, the banister had not been cleaned in months, the public areas were grimy and neglected. The bar had little stock, so... More

I stayed in a 10 bed dorm here at Frasers over two nights sandwiching my trip to Fraser Island, both times the rooms were supposed to have 3 fans working and none of them did. This being in Australia in February when the days are hot and the nights are sticky so you can imagine the smell. There was a... More

I stayed here as part of a package deal to Fraser Island. The location is convenient, across from the bus stop. The rooms are hot with just a fan inside. The 10 bed dorm had one en-suite bathroom with attached toilet and shower. Meaning if someone was showering, nobody could use the toilet. There were toilets in the common areas... More
