I recently stayed at Dingos before and after my Fraser tour and I had a brilliant time! The pancakes in the morning were fresh and delicious along with the $6 dinner which I enjoyed. The staff are very friendly and helpful, they also took us up to the Carlo Sandblow (sand dunes) which was really good, such a great view... More

Had a nice time here at Dingos staff were all very friendly. Bar was nice with cheap drinks and free pool table. Kitchen small but never busy. Pool and surrounding area is so chilled and relax loved it. Beds comfertable and bathrooms clean. Wifi strong accessable most areas of the hostal.

They tell you dinner for 6 dollar so you think you gonna get enough but not. Then they told you free pancakes in the morning but you get only 2 pancakes not more. Then when you want to party and you go to the bar at 11.50 pm and they don't want to serve you at the bar anymore. I... More

Pretty cheap hostel so wasn't expecting that much. The room I stayed in was an ok size and very basic, it was a 7 bed mixed dorm. It was fairly clean, the bathroom was not so nice- it was a wet room layout so once someone uses the shower the floor becomes soaked and with the heat outside and the... More

I stayed in Dingos for 2 nights before and 1 night after my trip to Frazer Island. The facilities are clean and the bar is a good laugh at night time. There is FREE pancakes every morning and $6 dinners each night which were really good. It is an ideal place to stay are the safety talk for the trip... More

After my long trip, now I have the time to look back and write some reviews: this stop was definitly one of the best parts, if not the best (Fraser Is.)! My main reason to stay there was the trip to Fraser Island, anyhow this review is dedicated to the very very kind people working at the Hostel. I was... More

The rooms and general facilities are pretty old and definitely require some maintenance. There were 3 electric outlets for 7 people in the room which is ridiculous and the bathroom was really old and not very nice. The nice things of this hostel are the bar and its live music which was really cool. Moreover, you get free pancakes in... More

This place is just grim. Everywhere is unclean, grotty and unacceptable. The toilets, the general area, the rooms. Everywhere needs a visit from Mrs Doubtfire. The wifi (which isn't theirs) has a radius of a match stick, the tables are so sticky it's like a child has smeared them with pritt stick and the beds are that hard you may... More

Stayed here as we were going on their Fraser Island tour, right outside where the greyhound drops you off, clean rooms with en suite bathrooms! But nothing compared to the Fraser Island tour! Our guide didn't really care to much, and we eleven saw him in the evenings. But the group we were with was amazing, driving the 4x4, even... More

This hostel is lovely and clean the layout of the hostel is good and it has its own bar. Drinks are very reasonable but you cannot bring alcohol to this hostel unfortunately. There is laundry facilities, a pool, and a chill area. Kitchen is ok you get given metal plates and Bowles, therefore there is nothing to put stuff on... More
