“Feels like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

I stayed in so many hostels during my travels down the East Coast of Oz and this was my favourite hostel! It felt like home.
For 4 nights in February I stayed in the girls only dorm - pink duvets, big mirror, air-con, big shower, hair dryer and straighteners, modern decor, light and plug socket by each bed and a big locker each. Couldn't ask for anymore.
There is a regular shuttle to Noosa Junction (bus station & supermarket) and to the Main Beach, however it is walk-able.
The kitchen is large, clean, spacious and equipped with all the utensils you will need and there is adequate fridge and storage space.
The only negative point is that the free wi-fi wasn't working when I stayed and there was only two computers by reception for people to access the internet, so there was always a queue.
The walks through the National Park and along the coast are beautiful and I also went to Steve Irwin's Zoo whilst staying in Noosa which was a great day out.
Best place to stay in Noosa!

Room Tip: The girls only room is a great room!

We are stoked by your review and pleased to add you as another satisfied guests who loved Flashpackers and all that Noosa has to offer. Our female rooms are very popular and all the girls love having a hair dryer and straightener to play with as we understand that they are not an easy thing to go traveling with! We hope to see you again in the future, safe and happy travels

Noosa - Flashpackers
Date of stay: 06/04/2013 a 10/04/2013
Dorm: 4 bed mixed / $34 per night
Deposit: Passport or $20
Overall: 9/10

This hostel is by far the best I have stayed in & better then some hotels I have stayed in. Located about 15 minuted from the transit centre. The hostel has regular shuttle buses running around Noosa.

The hostel is very modern. The pool is very nice & has a nice area around the pool that is partly sheltered with comfy seats. The hostel have a great common area with a big tv & comfy seats. The hostel has a separate room with 2 guitars in & a shelf full of games. The common are of the hostel had a good atmosphere. The hostel doesn't have a bar & instead people are drinking there own drinks, which I much prefer.

The kitchen here is amazing. Very clean, very good utensils & good equipment. The girls who work at the hostel make sure the kitchen is kept clean along with the rest of the hostel, which I thought was good.

I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm which was very clean & had an en-suite which was better then a lot of hotels I've stayed in. The hostel also had the best laundry, with machines that actually wash your clothes.

Overall I was very impressed, after staying at 2 hostels in Noosa & visiting nomads in noosa I would defiantly recommend staying at flashpackers. Although a bit more expensive, it was totally worth it from a short break from bad hostels.

Flashpackers has a free shuttle that picks you up from the bus, which I had never had all over Australia. The staff were all so lovely and explained where everything in Noosa is, and what the hostel has to offer! The kitchen, bathrooms and rooms were super tidy and well maintained.
It seemed like a house but on a larger scale. The lounge has a large tv with leather couches and wooden coffee table and wooden tv cabinet. The kitchen is styled similar to a home kitchen (and is flasher than my own kitchen at home). The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and well maintained.
There was free breakfast, free tea and coffee, free Internet, and a free shuttle around Noosa's main areas. They must have figured out exactly what backpackers want, because that's exactly what they have done.

We did a trip up the east coast of Aus and this was one of the best places we stayed! Staff were unbelievably helpful, went out of their way (one lady whose name I have forgotten unfortunately stayed 30 mins after her shift to help us sort some stuff). Rooms are great, clean and very modern. Showers great, kitchen good, TV area nice and communal - pool is adequate and would be nice if was bigger but with the space available it is fine. Great place

Very clean hostel, bathrooms were spotless, friendly staff, big kitchen with lots of crockery and utensils. All rooms had lockers
Nice lounge area with TV
Free wifi which is great - however very slow in periods when lots of people are in the hostel (evenings especially).
Not much atmosphere in this hostel beacuse most people are on their phones, tablets or computers all the time. If you were a lone traveller and wanted to meet people this is maybe not the best place. I travelled with my boyfriend and a friend of ours so this was not a problem.
20mins walk out of the centre of town there is a free bus frequently but does not run late so if you want to eat in town in the evening you would need to get a taxi or walk back.

Ok so things that make it perfect:

-free pick up and daily shuttle around all main beaches and shops so although not in the centre it isnt a problem. Also own is only 20 mins walk! It's good to walk
-cleanest hostel I have seen in 7 months of travel.
- amazing staff and owners also.
- free wifi
- free surf boards! (good ones! And body boards.
- great kitchen
- massive tv and DVD player
- pc's if you don't have a laptop.. Guess what... They're free too!
- free canvas bag to store your shopping in!
- clean bathrooms and great rooms
- oh yeh A POOL!
- free sausage sizzle and wine and cheese evening ( byo wine and cheese provided)

Basically we went for this place due to the great reviews and so glad we did!

Before I wrote this I read the bad reviews out of interest. I would reiterate either it was a bad staff member or just a knob of a back packer! Probably the latter! But if it was a bad staff member I can guarantee they are all amazing and the owners made me feel at home from word go so don't understand the bad reviews. They were years ago though?

So book here or you'll regret it!!

I stayed 3 nights at Noosa Flashpackers. One of the best Hostels during the last 10 Month Travelling. Very clean ,friendly Staff. Really good was the big Hostel Taxi Shuttle on Monday night to The Pub and back! Just 2 dollars for each way. This is a really good Service. Breakfast and Cheese, WIne and Crackers on Monday was very good and enough for everyone. Great Possibility to meet other Travellers!
And very rare as well good Washing Machines!
Staffmembers always friendly and helpfull! Good Atmosphere! The Perfect Hostel!
