It's budget accommodation, so the flashiness is in the fact there are single beds and the room had an en-suite bathroom, with separate shower/toilet/sink so no queuing required. There's free breakfast in a large communal space. The husband and wife duo who run this place are lovely. It's in a decent location, with a restaurant at the end of the... More

Perfect, friendly staff, everything tidy and clean all the time, nice ensuite rooms and lot of activities and free stuff (WiFi, computers, cinema room, etc)! I came here five months ago, and I don't regret choosing them again.

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

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

Thanks kindly for your honest review! But guess what? High season adds another dimension to the already cool vibe happening at Flashpackers, yeah a few more friends to meet and chat with, but still that nice relaxed chill feel. You must visit the 'bay' again, I feel you've missed soooo much. Yes Fraser is a highlight but local attractions ...water... 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!).

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...
