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

This place is right next to the bus stop with greyhound and premier, good information inside. The rooms were basic but nice, the bathroom were how you would expect a hostel to be. There's a bar inside which has cheap food and drink which is cool. The pool looks decent but there's never anyone in there which is weird. Staff... More

We stayed here the night before our transfer onto Fraser Island as it was the only place that had space. Our group had a private double and some in a shared dorm, both rooms were dingy and dirty. The hostel runs its own tour to Fraser but staff seemed completely clueless on any other tours that ran in the area... More

The kitchen was disgusting and didn't even have the basic stuff you need for cooking. Noisy, impossible to sleep. I stayed in a female dorm but they still managed to put a guy in our room. The staff is friendly but they have no idea what they're doing. This place just wants to make money. They management don't care about... More

Me and my friends slept one night on this hostel before going to Fraser Island. We were able to check in late which was great, but there were no air-con in the room and it was not possible to close the windows which were annoying since there was a live band til pretty late. We had to pay 20 dollars... More

Stayed for two nights. Booked a private room but had to go through a dorm to get to it which we weren't too impressed with. We thought we were getting air con (that could have been us misreading the hostel info but the dorm we walked through had it) but all we had was a dirty and dusty old fan... More

Asked for a double private room but had to walk through a 6 bed dorm to get to it. We were basically sharing a room with them. The mattresses were uncomfortable, like sleeping on concrete, people next door noisy, loud beds from next door (if you get what I mean) and the bathroom was disgusting. Mud all over the floor,...
