A lot of people stay at Rainbow Beach before and after a Fraser Island trip. I stayed here before my trip and at Pippe's after- pretty much the same but I would recommend this hostel over Pippe's. Don't expect much from any of these rainbow beach hostels as the rooms are a bit more basic than other Aus hostels. For... More

Stayed here in December as a base for the Fraser island trip. The hostel staff are friendly and helpful and the location is great. Beach was a short walk away along with lots of restaurants and shops. The hostel was a bit dated but you get what you pay for and it served its purpose as a base perfectly. The... More

I stayed here back in August for a couple nights with a friend. We didn't do the Fraser island trip, just went for a bit of relaxation in rainbow beach. The hostel could use a bit of a facelift but our stay was comfortable and we really enjoyed it The rooms are cleaned daily and the hostel has a nice... More

When I first planned to travel Australia, the intention was for me to constantly move around - being nomadic and seeing all that I could. This hostel, and Rainbow Beach as a town, threatened to scupper those plans as I simply never wanted to leave. I spent the best part of five months at Fraser's and loved every second of... More

Good location but the town is small so anywhere would be ok. Opposite the greyhound bus stop which is handy. Pool bar good & brought a burger there which was nice. Room not so great. We booked a double private with a shared bathroom but it didn't really feel that private. Had to walk through another dorm to get to... More

Good location for Fraser Island visits and friendly staff, though I must agree with other reviewers that the rooms themselves are pretty bleak. Rather prisonlike... though I suppose they were clean, just about, and the atmosphere was good!

This hostel was quite old and crumbling slightly however it had a good atmosphere to it and the manager seemed to be really intent on improving it. The food from the bar was good and there are free pancakes every morning! Although the rooms weren't modern, they were clean. The location is right next to the beach and its a... More

Stayed here for one night while travelling Australia, this has to be one of the worst hostels in Australia if not the worst. Paid for a double room which was a double bed under a bunk in a room off from a dorm! Hard mattresses, old sheets and decor matched with a dated and shabby shared shower room. Woke up... More

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
