The staff is friendly and is well located but our room (a double) was very small and overpriced, we did like the style very stained and easygoing but the kitchen and common bathrooms weren't clean enough.

A friend and I accepted jobs from a local farm as strawberry packer (female) and strawberry picker (male). We were told accomodation would be provided and were pretty excited about our first job. However, our excitement over the location was the only positive experience about this hostel. It is situated right next to the Maroochydore River and you only need...

This hostel is right next to the beach & a park with free barbecues etc. It does look a little shabby from the outside but I think this just adds to it's charm really. Rooms are clean & beds are comfortable. Communal ares can get dirty in the evenings, but it is a hostel and you learn to accept things...

We were extremely disappointed on arrival at the state of the house. First impressions were not good, the garden is a mess and the inside of the house is not much better. Staff were not that helpful and the only good thing was how close it was to the beach. Wifi is available but you have to pay, which is...

Stayed here five days in summer time. Everyone and everything is very laid back and easy going, sometimes a bit too much. Needs an upgrade when it comes to, well, pretty much everything. All the rooms are basic, kitchen is basic, bathrooms are basic. You just get what you pay for really. They do offer farm work, but you have...

Awful, awful, awful experience. Rude staff. Dirty and Smelly rooms (bed sheets had dirt/sand on them). The whole house is completely run down. Bathroom/Toilet right next to the kitchen. Arrived at the backpackers and found that the room we were allocated absolutely stunk. It was uninhabitable, unfortunately this was at 11pm at night and we had no way of going...
