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

Hostel ok. Have to pay for wifi but it's good and fast. Room quite clean but double room is a double with a bunk bed ok top which they dont says. not much to do in the area itself. The reception staff are very rude.

I stayed here for 1 night either side of our Fraser Island trip with my boyfriend in March 2015. The greyhound bus stop is right outside the hostel and the main road is right around the corner. We had a private, ensuite room which was spacious, although a little bit old. One big complaint would be the lack of organisation... More

This place is disgusting. Couldn't bring myself to cook in the kitchen as it was vile! Food left out nothing was put away and everything covered in flies or ants. The staff really don't seem bothered. There are signs asking guest to wash an put away but these are just ignored and staff seem to just leave it. They do... More
