I stayed in this hostel as part of the Fraser Island trip. The hostel itself isn't bad, had a great atmosphere; cheap drinks; good activities and was clean enough. However the trip to Fraser Island that Dingos provide is fantastic! I had the best weekend yet during my travels. The weather wasn't great at times but our group and tour... More

The dingo's tour of Fraser island was definitely one to remember; I had a blast!! Obviously the natural beauty of the island is a major plus but it was the warmth, humour, and essence of the tour guide (Mick) that really won me over, he was great!!! Loved the stories, the laughs, the highs and the lows*. You got to... More

Myself and two friends recently did the Dingos Fraser Island tour. We really didn't know what to expect, but it well exceeded our expectations! The tour guide Mick was friendly, informative and overall great craic! The entire group loved the places he brought us and all of the stories about the heritage and traditions of the island's people. The campsite... More

The hostel is located next to the other hostels in what is probably one of the smaller towns on the east coast. There really isn't much at all going on in Rainbow beach. Even the beach is pretty poor by Australian standards. The rooms are often sticky and filled with sand but I have the feeling that this is the... More

Just got back from 3 days Fraser Island and I must admit, it was worth every penny! Visiting the beautiful island with so many great places, eating mussels we found on the beach, driving a 4WD on the bumpy roads, drinking at the campfire and watching the most amazing sky during the night are only a few of all the...

The hostel is nice enough- with the bar having cheap food and drinks deals The tour I have to say I was a little dissapointed with. We still had a great time... It's hard not to in such a beautiful place! But things could have been improved with more informed structure of the days, so we could better organise ourselves... More

The hostel itself was ok. Reasonably priced bar, room was clean bar the mess one of our room-mates left behind. Free pancakes for breakfast is always a bonus and they do cheap meals too. The communal kitchen was a little too small for the number of people and that showed when I had to eat dinner with just a knife... More

Dingos hostel was a pretty good base for our Fraser Island tour, but the tour was what really stood out! Despite the weather being bad the first day we still had an amazing trip! There was so much food of a good quality and we really felt we got our money's worth! Out tour guide, Mike was amazing!! Great guy,... More

I stayed at Dingos Backpacker Adventure resort one night before my trip to Fraser Island (whichh also waS organised by Dingos) and two nights after the three mist amazing days on the big sand Island. First of all, it's literally 20 meters from the busstop, so good! Second, it is cheap compared to other hostels, plus you get More for... More
