We stayed for one night only on a quick visit to see the coloured sands. We were in a two bedroom apartment in the small apartment block away from the main Pippies Beachhouse. The location near to the beach is very good. the apartment was very clean and tidy, but rather dated and perhaps a little tired. The bed was...

Can't seem to find a separate page for the tag along tour of Fraser Island so guess it all goes on here. Pippies hostel itself is alright but everybody we spoke to was only there because they were going on or had already done the 4x4 tag along tour of Fraser Island. So the hostel itself is kind of irrelevant!...

I had one night in this lovely little hostel. The only room they had available was a private double which was very reasonably priced. The bed was comfy and the 'shared' (literally only shared with one other room) bathroom next door was lovely and clean too. Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. There was a good mix of people....

I stayed at pippies either side of a 3x day Fraser Island tag along tour ran by Pippies. The tour I cannot fault. The hostel however is a slightly different story. The hostel is very clean, secure and has working A/C, (bonus), the pool is pretty and there is a pool table and a dartboard. However, one of the longer...

We stayed here before and after a trip to Fraser Island (we organised ourselves not through the hostel). The first night we weren't on the main site but a house a couple of streets away, this was quite dirty, poorly lit and lacking in wifi. The second night we were on the main site (which was better) still a bit...

We stayed in this hostel for two nights, one before the trip and one after. Check-in was chaotic, there was only 1 lady for everyone that had just come off the greyhound. She was so nice and friendly and was doing the very best she could but help the girl out, get more staff!! The room was a decent size...
