We stayed here as part of the Fraser Island tour (which was AWESOME) but the hostel itself was very average. We arrived at 8am and had to sleep in the bar until 11am which wasn't a good start - a member of staff just barked this at us when am we arrived. Great after a 14 hour coach journey. Rude... More

We stayed in our campervan but had two nights inclusive in Dingos before and after our trip to Fraiser Island so we used the facilities but didnt stay. The facilities are great and pancakes in the morning were pretty awesome. We got seconds on the last morning :) The trip on Fraiser Island really was amazing. However this really is... More

We were in a dorm room for 8 people, bathroom in the room, not really clean. There's a nice place to relax next to the pool and free wifi from Peterpans in the bar. There's free pancakes at 7am, first arrived, first served, be there at 7! You can also have dinner for 6dollars. Simple food, good but not a... More

We had pre and post accommodation here as part of our Fraser islsnd tour package. We arrived to check in at 9 and the receptionist simply replied 'check in is 10' very abruptly. Sure we knew 9 was early but we were hopeful! The hostel itself is okay, the laundry room was good with good space outside with washing lines... More

Everything about Dingos was amazing. The rooms were very clean and they also have air conditioning. I must admit it did get a little cold but you can rent blankets. The keys are on a band so you can't lose them which was another plus. There are $6 meals which are very tasty. Even when you checkout and your pick... More

We had an awesome time at Dingo's. The hostel is very clean and fun, good entertainment nights with live music etc. The staff are really cool and friendly. This is a must stay if doing the Fraser Island 4x4 tour. Camping on the island was so much fun, met some really nice people. Best prices in Oz for alcohol :)

Stayed here before and after our Fraser Island tour. The rooms are clean and are air conditioned. The kitchen is kind of small but functional, it's kind of annoying that they provide you with a plate/bowl/cutlery which you then have to keep in your room. Free pancakes on the morning of the tour were great!

Stayed here as part of our Fraser Island tour, the night before we left and the night we returned. Rooms were nice, beds were average, bathroom was grand. The kitchen area is fully equiped and the bar was a good laugh and the pancake breakfast is not to be missed. Located near IGA, other convenience shops, the local pub, cafes,... More

The camp site was infested with bush rats that bit people at night as well as nibbled through their belongings - chewed off cables, pants , jackets etc 3 of 4 restrooms were clogged on day 1 and nothing was done to fix it. Neither was toilet paper replaced. They say they cater to special diets but vegetarians just got... More

Dingos is the place to stay in Rainbow Beach! Great bar with cheap drinks, awesome kareoke and good vibes. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly and the pool/hammocks are fun to chill out in. Plus, there are free pancakes, lockers at reception and wifi! The tour is next level - Fraser Island is absolutely stunning. Our guide was very knowledgable... More
