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...

Stayed here for one night, on my way to brisbane in a tent. The hostel seemed good enough. It could habe been a bit cleaner, but the atmosphere, pool and kitchen were great. The wifi wasnt really working though.

Amazing! Bret was our tour guide and to be honest after a year traveling on different tours he has to be one of the top tour guides I have ever met. He had everyones respect, he approached everyone fairly and was quick to start the fun and made everyone feel comfortable. He was clearly passionate about the island and he...

We booked our tour to Fraser Island with Happy Travels. The trip was 2 nights camping on the island with a tourguide and 2 nights in the hostel itself. I'm not sure how much we paid but I believe around 430 AUS each. First all the good things: 1. Check in very easy and friendly staff 2. The food on...

Firstly, I have to say that after reading the reviews on here, most people who have written a negative review need to get a grip. The place is fantastic for the price you pay and you can't fault it at all. I stayed here for a week, went on their Fraser tour and stayed again after the tour. I moved...

I only stayed at Pippies one night but also completed the Fraser Island 3 day, 2 night trip through them and had an excellent experience in both places. At Pippies, you definitely feel safe and feel like you're in your own little hostel world because it is surrounded by a privacy fence. The grounds are lovely, shaded with trees, and...
