I'll start with the hostel: Beds are fairly hit and miss. I had a night before the tour and 3 nights after the tour. I was put in room 2 which is right next to the bar/ nightclub/ karaoke. If you want sleep and are anywhere near this room it's not going to happen. One bed with a proper mattress... More

The dingos self drive trip is fab! Dazza our leader was so much fun and he made our trip. It was fairly relaxed and we didn't have to get up mega early but we still saw everything everybody on other tours saw! There's plenty of food but maybe take a few snacks for the evening or if lunch is later!... More

Dingos Hostel: This hostel is incredible! Friendly warm welcome at reception, nice clean and tidy room/bathroom, entertainment at the bar every night with good priced drinks and a perfect chill out area with hammocks! What more could you ask for, i ended up extending my stay for a week to make the most of that stunning beach. Dingos Tour: A-M-A-ZING!... More

Stayed here for two nights as part of my Fraser Island trip with two friends in October 2015. Staff are really friendly and we were checked in quickly and given a plate, cup and bowl for meal times. The rooms are just average with around six to eight beds in each room with a good sized en-suite. The showers are... More

Stayed here before & after my Fraser Island trip. Basic rooms with restricted air con which was annoying. Cheap food & drinks offers daily that are good for backpackers on a budget. The hostel has a lot of travellers stopping off in campervans. Bring an adapter as limited plugs. No lockers in dorms which is inconvenient. Had some clothes stolen... More

This backpackers is located next to both Pippi's and Fraser and definitely the best of the bunch in terms of vibe and facilities. I stayed 2 nights before the Dingos tag-along trip over New Yeat and also 1 night after. There's a bar that opens 4 til midnight, with 'happy hour' over half that time! :) The pool area is... More

All i can say is, out of my whole east coast trip this had to be my favourite. Dingos on Rainbow beach was clean with good food. Only complaint about the hostel is that there was one Male member of staff that was extremely rude, unfriendly & should not be working there. To be telling us to "shut up" in... More

Lets start with my only complaint: the majority of mattresses in the room I had were terrible! They were like crash mats, not comfortable at all. Other than that the hostel is nice and clean, the bar is cheap and really good to socialise in (also free pool table), and there is free wifi which is nice. Would recommend if... More
