I stayed here for one night when I came back from Fraser Island and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! The beds were comfy, and the rooms and bathrooms were all so clean! It was more relaxed which was just what was needed after my Fraser Island tour. There is a good kitchen area and a pool. There was also free... More

This was just like staying with uncle and aunty for the weekend. The property is well set out, rooms were clean and tidy and you have everything you could possibly want or need. The main share facilities, kitchen, dining and pool area are well set out and maintained at a high standard. They have a commercial set up in the... More

I arrived after staying at Flashpackers in Noosa and being impressed with the set up, the "feel" and cleanliness and I wasn't disappointed in Hervey Bay. The owner (didn't get his name) was very helpful in booking me a taxi, he kept referring to me by my first name which I thought was a very personal and nice. The room... More

Very chilled hostel with really good facilities. Kitchen very clean and plenty of space. Bedrooms clean and each bed had a plug socket. Hosts were really helpful and happy to help with everything, even out of hours.

Although there's not much going on in Hervey Bay, we had a night here before and after our Cool Dingo trip on Fraser Island (highly recommend). Flashpackers, as you see when you arrive, is pure luxury for backpackers. It's a hostel, but some of the rooms have en-suite and the showers are AMAZING and so clean. We booked a 4... More

Flashpackers is absolutely the place for backpackers! It has all the luxury of a hotel (every bed has it's own socket and night lamp). Common area is very relaxed and easy going. Super clean hostel, every dorm has their own shower and toilet (no waiting!).

So this was not a planned hostel. Our whole group was so ill camping in the winter round the east coast that we decided to get a hostel to recover. Luckily I found this hostel, with an early morning drive we ended up at the hostel at 9.30. Full of cold looking an absolute mess we was allowed to check... More

Beautiful common area. Rooms are basic, but you get a warm blanket and each bed has their own charger. Ensuite bathrooms. Staff is very helpful. Wifi only in common area. A little off the main drag, but its an easy walk to downtown.

Thanks Liz for your comments! Snuggy rooms in the couple of cooler months we have at the moment is always nice. Hervey bay is a sprawled out town so it can seem everything is far away, but our free shuttle bus helps get all our guests around town to the Greyhound bus stop at Pialba and the major shopping area...

We spent Christmas here and it was one to remember! Bill and lyn are spectacular hosts and really made us feel at home, especially needing it around that time of year. We ended up saying longer than we expected due their hospitality. Christmas dinner was excellent! Everyone chipped in $15 and got a 3 course BUFFET drinks and all. Everyone... More

If you have stayed at Noosa Flashpackers and thought that was good, this is better! Its not a party place (which for me was perfect!), but it is definitely sociable. There is a swimming pool and loads of seating round it, which is great, a big common area and a perfectly equipped and large kitchen. They have wine and cheese... More

It's great how people can have equally good experiences and recognise the differences between hostel setups yet still enjoy and make the most of their stay. I agree our communal areas in Hervey Bay are a little more spacious as we have more area, the pool and surrounds, the deck all fantastic and adds to the social feel. Its great... More
