We stayed at dingos for one night before our trip to Fraser island. We are staying in our camper van in the car park and there is toilet and hot shower just for people in vans. Great place and atmosphere. Had a really tasty chicken curry for just $6!! Staff are helpful too.

I stayed at Dingos for 3 nights and had the amazing Fraser island trip in-between my stay. The hostel staff were friendly and helpful when i had any questions during my stay. The bar was good fun each night with a great atmosphere. Kitchen facilities were good and seemed to be cleaned every hour. Rooms were clean and spacious. The... More

Dingos has been an absolute pleasure to stay jn,. After returning from our dingos tour of Fraser island which is a large sandy island near rainbow beach we were greeted with luxury. The hostel has a great bar where you can buy alcoholic drinks. I have just had an alcohulic drank from here and it was good. I would recommend... More

Dingos is a great hostel for backpackers. Affordable, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and a bar - what more could you ask for! Perfect location right beside beautiful beaches. Would definitely recommend to friends travelling the east coast.

I spent three days with dingoes doing the tag along tour and camping and it was the most amazing experience. Our guide Joel was super and even cracked put the guitar on the final night around the campfire which was super. They provided all good and drinks and it was all super and extremely well organised. Safety was a big... More

The beds were comfortable but it got freezing cold during the night in the room and you have to pay for blankets. There's free breakfast which lasts for 15 minutes if you are lucky. they offer a great variety of activities. The atmosphere is beautiful at the night.

My review as you seems to request it. I go to Rainbow beach for 2 night, where puppies was okay to fine, dingo was a desaster. Probably the worst night I spent in Australia. There is no blanket (you need to go to the reception and ask for it), you can't use the pool, the free breakfast is really limited... More

Stayed here before our Dingos Fraser Island trip ( which was amazing ) . Really disappointed with the hostel, in the morning cleaners would come into the room with no consideration for the people not checking out and trying to sleep, they were so noisy! Free breakfast was just toasted pancakes which were first come first serve so didn't last... More

We were cold at night - you have to get blanket at reception and leave a deposit. If you don't realise it's going to be cold and reception closes at 7 you can't do anything about it during the night. Great idea to give everyone a set of a bowl, cup and plate to be responsible for but it was... More

About the hostel: Loved the hammocks and the kitchen was fine. - The "free breakfast" consists of pancakes served mainly for those leaving for the Fraser trip. It runs out in 20 minutes or less. - WiFi was never working, calling it "Dingos Awesome Free Wi-Fi" is a bad joke. - It's winter. When the sun goes down, it's cold.... More
