So I just stayed there for a couple of nights because I was heading to Fraser Island. The rooms are quite bad: - the humidity is so strong you can feel it in the mattresses and sheets - it's freezing, we had to ask for a blanket because despite it's winter they only give you a thin sheet - there...

I stayed here for one night in a 10 bed dorm prior to travelling around Fraser Island. The beds were clean and comfortable and although only thin sheets were provided, warm blankets were available on request. There are lots of plug sockets in the rooms which is always a bonus! The staff were helpful and organised a walk to the... More

We stayed in a 10 bed dorm for 2 nights before heading to Fraser Island which seemed to be what most guests were doing as it is directly opposite the bus stop for the transfers as well as greyhound etc. Don't stay here for a decent night's sleep as the music carries on until late and all the dorm rooms...

Great place to base yourself in Rainbow. Cheap, basic accommodation but clean and comfortable. Both dorms and privates have bathrooms in rooms. Stayed there for 2 nights as a weekend getaway from Brisbane. Great bar, kitchen and common facilities. Staff were fantastic. Great place to meet other travellers. Would stay again!

Worse hostel we've stayed at in Australia. I know it's cheap but simple cleanliness is not hard to achieve. We stayed in a double room. On both rooms they had dirty floors, hairs all in the shower and sticky furniture. The sleep was ok as we were tired from trips and travelling. However the bedding didn't seem thoroughly cleaned. The... More

Staff friendly and helpful. Terrible otherwise. Furniture in common room all tore and worn. Floors in room clean but worn and looked horrible. Bed had plastic cover on and sag in middle of double therefore uncomfortable and noisey. Pancake breakfast ok. Kitchen terrible, clean but looked horribly old and not many utensils. Whoever owns this hostel need to spend money... More

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
