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

The place could be Nice if efforts were made to clean better the rooms , maybe i was unlucky to have the worst room but it smelt so bad the carpet on the ground was wet and we had to deal with several coackroches in thé room, my worst souvenir of homestay in Australia.

Stayed here a few nights with some friends. The bar area and entertainment were quality, live music and pool tables made both nights stay good fun. Rooms are very basic and get really hot at night. Rainbow beach itself is pretty boring to be honest, nice beach tho but not really alot to do

This hostel is great value for money and has a good vibe with live music and entertainment during the week. It’s in a perfect spot close to the beach, Greyhound bus stop, shops and restaurants. The nightly dinner is good value for money and I’d recommend staying here.

The first night we stayed in a dirty ten bed dorm, the bathroom was absolutely vile with a ceiling full of mould and a disgusting shower curtain. The second night we stayed in a cockroach infested room admittedly with a much... More

Staff were great, bar was great especially when the live music was on. Kitchen was very small and not great. Rooms were dirty but adequate we had a private room with ensuite and balcony so it suited us. Would stay again but it isn't luxury.

I stayed at this hostel for two nights, the staff working were very welcoming and happy to answer any questions, the room itself was a decent size and had it's own bathroom, I spotted that the bathroom wasn't the cleanest I've been in, it was fairly dusty and there was hair over the floor. The bar was great, there was... More

I stayed at this hostel before and after my Fraser island trip as it was included for free with my booking. The main problem this hostel has is cleanliness. The kitchen is disgusting and consequently I ended up eating most of the time because I did not want to cook in it. The dorm rooms were not much better in... More
