Thought I would write a quick review about our stay here.
I visited Maroochydore with my fiance and booked a private room at this hostel. I've stayed at many backpackers so I know the deal and that's fine, we like the vibe in hostels. The problem was however for some reason the owner has the cleaners come in at around 7am and do all the vacuming. The walls are very thin, so the noise is quite loud and I couldn't sleep through it. I thought it was just a one off so didn't say anything, but it was exactly the same the next morning.
I commented to the owner who replied, yeah i know, the cleaner as another job afterwards so we have to do it then. I wasn't happy with this, as we were on holiday and not wanting to be forced awake so early. So asked for a refund, which of course was denied, part of the fine print when you sign in. On top of this they had fruit pickers staying there who got up at 5am and banged around in the kitchen which also forced me awake.
Maybe i'm missing the mark as it is a hostel, maybe i should have known that this kind of thing happens in hostels. The location is great and the people are nice, however If your like us and thinking of doing something similar for a holiday, i suggest staying elsewhere.
