So I stayed here a night before my excusin on on Fraser Island and a night after I got back from the trip. It wasn't the cleanest, but wasn't the worst hostel I stayed in. No aircon & the beds weren't the best but overall I would stay here again for a short time only. Staff are so friendly and... More

Worst accommodation I've ever seen, dirty, old and very unhelpful staff and management. Definitely not worth your money! Plenty of other nice accommodations around, don't go to Fraser's or Dingo's, it's a scam! They just want to make money! Hot water not working, dirty sheets and towels, old and worn down building.

Stayed here as part of our Fraser Island tour for 2 nights with friends. The room itself was clean and spacious and we had an 8 bed dorm to ourselves (this consisted of two rooms joined together with no door). Our first night at this hostel was eventful due to one of our friends waking up in the middle of... More

Frasers on Rainbow is a below average hostel, run down and pretty filthy. Serves its purpose for Fraser Island though. The tour was incredible. Geoff was our guide and he was super friendly. He had so much love, passion and knowledge about the island! We went to beautiful spots (of course)!

Poor communication with respect to late check in. We were advised for late check in to go to Dingos next door but were not advised that we could not use credit cards and hence had minimal cash. Lucky between us all, were able to round up the funds to make this payment. There was also minimal staff behind the bar... More

The hostel Fraser on Rainbow doesn't exist any longer. You have to use the reception and everything else from the Dingo hostel next to it. Dingo looks better. You can sleep for $10 per person in your own car next to the hostel and use toilet and shower. The 2 nights 3 days fraser island self drive tag along tour... More

Booked a double room here usually stay in dorm but after a long bus ride wanted a comfy stay! Looked like a crack den! Holes in all the walls, thick filth on the floor. But the Frazer tag along was well organised.

Arriving at Rainbow Beach l checked in at Dingoes Hostel. Assuming Dingoes was full after checking in with them, I was sent next door to another hostel (Fraser Hostel) which had recently been taken over by Dingoes and is undergoing renovations as a sign indicates. Entering Frasers it was clear that this place was in desperate need of a make-over.... More
