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

Based on the reviews, we booked a double room with private bathroom for two nights through booking.com. Upon arrival, late in the afternoon, the person at the front desk told us she had to leave to drive to the supermarket with some guests. She quickly checked us in (gave us the key to our room and pointed in the direction... More

Stayed here before and after Fraser trip. By far one of the nicest hostels I stayed in on my trip up the east coast. As soon as you arrive you are greeted by really friendly staff who actually make a real effort to make sure you have a good stay. The whole living/kitchen area is really smart for a hostel... More

We stayed at flash packers for one night expecting it to be the ultimate backpackers.... It was just average, nothing flashy the same as any other hostel, we stayed in a four bed which was very small, no AC, and a queue for the toilet in the morning for our room and others.!

So sorry to hear your expectations weren't met Christina, but you have to remember that hostels are in a budget accommodation range, so if you want premium "Sheraton" type facilities you need to pay and stay at those type of hotels. However, Flashpackers does offer an extremely clean, modern, comfortable and friendly hostel experience with a lot of free inclusions... More
