A cosy place and a good kitchen/common area. Cockroaches in the room and you have to pay extra for the air condition. The reception is closed in the middle of the day and we didn't get any information about that. Nice staff.

Amazing and cozy stay! Many friendly people and super helpful staff! Hervey Bay wasn't our favourite place in Australia, but this lovely hostel made it worthwhile. Nice rooms, good kitchen and drop off at the greyhound busses available. Only thing missing is a small pool. Thank u for a lovely stay!

I did not actually stay in this hostel but I stayed across the road! When I came back off a trip I realised that I had lost my towel and with my reception closed it meant I did not have a towel to have a shower with. Thankfully the guy on reception here was really friendly and let me hire...

Although this hostel is not near a lot it is only a few minutes walk to the lovely Hervey Bay beach! This hostel makes you feel like you're in the outback with all the little shacks! It's by far the most chilled hostel we've been to so far and it also has free wifi which up the east coast doesn't...

Thanks for your feedback! When Brent has the time he loves to have a chat and Xena the dog loves a pat and belly rub!! Hervey Bay is the Gateway to all Fraser Island highlights and the Woolshed offer some great money saving accommodation/tour packages when booking direct. Everything is hot in this heatwave however we do offer rooms with...

We stayed here for 2 nights while going to Fraser Island and loved the atmosphere that was here. Free parking for cars. Free 1gb of wifi. Reception was shut when we arrived but they left a key in a safe for us so we could check in when they reopened and was nice to let us chill by the beach...

Thanks for your feedback. Clean facilities and rooms is what you pay for and we're glad we meet your expectations! I agree it can be uncomfortable in some of the rooms during a heatwave however we do provide dorms and privates with aircon for a few extra dollars. We have a small supermarket 5 minute walk and the Woolworthes is...

Great price, staff and location, very clean! Completely recommend it. At first we booked a 1 night private double bed room, and then changed the plans for 2 nights, was easy to extend the stay. ................................

I stayed by myself in a private room for 2 nights as a base to visit Fraser Island. Very friendly reception staff & they offered free transfers to & from the Greyhound stop during reception hours if pre-arranged. When I left my bus wasn't until 9.35pm but they booked a taxi for me. As I was departing late I paid...

Around 10 mins away from the airport, this hostel has great rooms with a really cool woodland cabin type feel to them. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing.

Thanks for your accurate description of the Woolshed. Generally guests are only here for 1 or 2 days so 1 GB is plenty however if your staying longer we're happy to provide more data within reason.
