I didn't like my stay at this hostel. We arrived with the Greyhound around 10 am but check-in wasn't until 12, so we just sat around looking for two hours. They must have new backpackers coming in at this time every day, and all other hostels check you in at all times, so I don't get why they where so... More

Only stayed for one night as i was just passing through, rooms weren't too bad - the staff was really helpful. I've stayed in better hostels but I've also stayed in much worse. i suppose just one night isn't enough for a fair evaluation.

Before getting into the list of negatives regarding this hostel I will for fairness sake talk about what it offers. The main reason you will stay here is for trips to fraser island which make the journey shorter than if you were coming from further south. Another positive aspect is the fact that you are just five minutes walk from... More

The rooms here resemble prisons. Everything's needs updating like the kitchen and social area. All staff were ok apart from one (Canadian?) girl on reception who was rude and tried to keep my passport when I went to Fraser Island but could give me no good reason for doing so. When I demanded it back she tried to get a... More

Really good location giving you one of the best access points for your trip to fraser island. The hostel itself has a big bar area, reasonably priced drinks and is full of like minded backpackers. However the rooms could do with a bit of TLC. Happy with our 2 night stay here!

Unfortunately this hostel is one of the only two you can stay at for the Fraser Island tour. It was dark, smelly, needing a fresh coat of paint and the beds weren't comfrey, the sheets were stained, the lights didn't work in the bathroom and they just weren't very nice. This hostel I think is slightly better than Dingos but... More

I work as a tour guide, constantly travelling every state and territory of Australia. I spend almost every night in either a hostel, motel, hotel or camping out in my swag. I regularly stay at dozens of hostels around Australia. I had spent about six nights at Frasers on Rainbow Beach up until March of this year. To be honest... More

I booked this hostel for the night prior and after my trip to Fraser Island. The trip was awesome: the island is beautiful and it was great to drive our own car. We got enough food for our group and the camping site was nice, although an airbed or matrass would have made sleeping more comfortable... So for the trip... More
