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.

Backpackers that want a rest before and after Fraser Island, or just a break from party travel - this is the place to relax. The awesome family that runs the hostel also lives on property and they take pride in a clean, super relaxed hostel! I'm a bit biased, as I stayed for accommodation and cleaned for a few weeks...And... More

We stayed at the Woolshed for four nights and had a very pleasant stay. We were in Room 12 (the newest room) which, although small, was well done, with corrugated iron walls and shower to imitate an actual shed. The room had a small flat-screen TV and excellent shower, but there was little storage space in the room (which wasn't... More
