We didn't have the best first impression as the hostel messed up our pick up, but it turned out to be a really good hostel. The communal kitchen area was really nice, with sofas to sit and chat on and cool wall decorations. The outside area is really nice, with lots of plants and trees! The staff were also friendly...

Stayed here for one night was going to try stay a second night following a trip to Fraser but glad we didn't book it. On arrival we weren't exactly made overly welcome and this whole 10 dollar key deposit needs to be mentioned in bookings because having lived in Australia for the past couple of years it's not unheard of...

I stayed here for a few nights before and after my Fraser island tour, which they helped me book. Its a family run hostel set around a garden area. It wasn't busy when I was there, however if it was I could see the small number of bathrooms and showers available being a nuisance. Be aware that people are leaving... More

I had a wonderful stay at Aussie Woolshed Backpackers-the staff were exceptionally friendly, polite and welcoming. The hostel had a very 'homely' feel to it, and I felt that a lot of love, care and attention was made to make guests feel comfortable and ensure that they had a pleasant stay. The free pick up and drop off service to... More

The hostel is really nice and clean. But there is no shuttle from the premier bus stop. Only for greyhound. The taxi is to expensive for a short stay. Unfortunately my bed was next to the toilet so I could hear the flash of the toilet quit loud at night. There is free WiFi but it didn't really work. The... More

Woolshed is a very beautiful and quiet hostel. It's a great relaxing place before you go on a Fraser Tour. It offers a large kitchen and tv area. The staff were very helpful for showing me around and where to go out.
