Reception was friendly and organised, the kitchen, rooms, bathrooms were clean, you get cheap but good food, free pancake breakfast in the morning with tea and coffee. The atmosphere is very relaxed, chill music is on all day if you want to chill by the pool. It all seems very well organised... I liked it!

I've been here for only 2 nights but this hostel is very good. Even if no one used it (because it was winter) the pool is very good and the chill out area is huge, also there are a lot of common areas and the bar is good. Some rooms are better than other ones (some of them are fitted... More

Rooms are spacious enough & clean with own toilet/shower rooms. Good location. Staff on reception etc were a bit slow & could have been friendlier. Hostel does free sand boarding every day which was great fun must do this & see sunset from the sand dunes. At night we went next door to Frasers hostel as there was live music... More

What a chilled little town. Rainbow Beach's actually beach is HUGE plenty of space to run around and get your own privacy when you need it. Dingos is an awesome hostel. We checked in late on a monday night and the manager came up to us even though it was her day off and helped us to our room (we... More

Fraser Island itself was a great experience however the camping facilities were deplorable. Dirty dishes, no soap, no hot water, no dish cloths, dirty washrooms, no pillows. It could be a fantastic spof if upgraded. Your rules should include.... No brushing teeth in kitchen sink, clean up after yourselves, and turn off music at midnight or at least by 1.... More

Stayed in the hostel the night before and after our fraser Island tour. Its your basic hostel, not fabulous not awful. Its clean and the staff are friendly. Only complaint is that you have to give a $20 deposit for a blanket and I think considering it was winter these should be provided when you get there. Other than that... More

I slept 2 nights at the dingos backpacker in a 8-bed-room. The rooms were ok and very clean and the kitchen also. The pool area is very nice to relax and i had a lot of fun on the karaoke-nights. I did the Fraser Island Tour (3 days) with Dingos and it was awesome and one of my best adventures... More

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
