I was looking for hostels in Hervey Bay and the Woolshed struck me as one of the more professional ones in the area. An easy walk (20 minutes at most) from the Greyhound stop, I was welcomed into the fold immediately by Adam and Dara on reception. They answered any questions I had and got me ready for my tours....

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...

Thanks for your feedback and sorry your free transfer was late, during off peak times we only have 1 person in reception and driving the bus and sometimes everything happens at once! We will review our procedure and make improvements where needed. I'm glad you enjoyed our hostel and that it suited your needs. We're definitely not 5 star but... More

Thanks for your feedback! We are family owned and operated and we also live here so we try to make the Woolshed as homely as possible.

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...

We're sorry you were disappointed with your stay at the Woolshed it was certainly not our intention to make you feel unwelcome upon check in. Some form of key security is standard in hostels and is a small part of our check in procedure that our staff are asked to follow. The animal you describe making the noise was a... More

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

Thanks for your feedback! Some guests depart at 7.20am for tours to Fraser and check out time is 10am. During the day the hostel is fairly quiet if a sleep in is needed and earplugs can help with any early morning dorm disruptions. Each block has its own bathroom and we also have private en suites in some of the... More
