Stayed at Dingos 2 nights before and 1 night after my Fraser tour! Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean, beds were comfy, showers are AMAZING! What more do you want??? And the pancakes every morning are awesome but you have to get up early.

The only reason I didn't give all five stars is bc the first time I stayed for a night my shower had no pressure and not much hot water, however, when I returned from Fraser Island (a must do with Cool Dingo!) I had a new room with a lovely shower. The bar was good, kitchen clean, rooms were clean... More

My girlfriend and I had booked the Fraser Island tag-along tour through Peter Pan's with a nights stay either side in Dingos Hostel. It's a good social hostel, the bar has a good drinks promos which is handy cause there ain't much else to see or do around the town area. We had an absolute great bunch of people on... More

The hostel has a nice pool, good open air kitchen and a social eating area. There's nothing to do in rainbow beach so only come for The Fraser Island trip. The tour was well organised and we stayed in a campsite surrounded by a fence to keep the dingos out. So much depends on how well you get on with... More

Had my best night meeting people in dingo'a super social bar. Credit due to the friend English barmaid who kept the place going (must be because she's smart enough to do a maths degree). We stayed in camper van around the back. This was ok. No power, but showers etc good. Owner was really moody in the morning when trying... More

I stayed in this backpacker for two nights. It is clean and the stuff is very friendly. For dinner it offers you meals for 6 dollar. They are tasty but the portion are too small so you have to order again one or you must go to the next supermarket if you are too hungry. However, I booked my tour... More

Arrived on a greyhound bus directly opposite the entrance, greeted by a hostel employee for those doing a Fraser Island tour (we weren't) but nice to arrive relatively new to hosteling with nothing to worry about. $6 meals every night were good...

(This is a review of just the hostel and not the company that did the tours to Fraser) We stayed at the hostel for three nights and found it to have everything we needed. The rooms were a good size for the number of bunks, which meant everyone had room for their own stuff. There's a pool and a nice... More
