We stayed here for one night after Fraser Island and found that the staff wernt that helpful and our rooms were quite small and we didn't feel very safe! Kitchen facilities were very basic, wouldn't stay here again

Stopped at dingos for one night as I had booked my Fraser Island tour with the hostel next door and got there a day early. Location is good as you get off the bus and you are basically at the hostel. Rooms were clean and tidy as was the ensuite. Wifi is free but pretty poor and can only get... More

However tour guide wasn't very talkative and didn't tell us much about the history of the place etc., more information would be appreciated.

En suite shower was a little gross and the communal kitchen was atrocious. There was no way I would ever cook there. Mostly quiet at night as the bar shuts down early.... More

We did this tour and had a great time because we had a great group! But the organisation looks like a scam! First you pay a lot to do the tour. Then at the safety briefing you need to pay $5,- for fire wood per group. (And guess what, arriving at fraser island the driver knew nothing about fire wood... More

Not the best hostel out there, but cheap food and an average nights sleep gets the job done. Handy having Peter Pans next door to use the wifi, but it is literally like all the other hostels in Rainbow, can't complain about them, they suffice for the few nights you'll stay.
