My girlfriend and i enjoyed our stay at the flash packers. The rooms were clean, the free breakfast was great and the communal areas were well looked after and felt very sociable. We stayed in a double room with an ensuite bathroom and a private outside area.
The room was very comfortable which was important after a long flight. The location is a bit out of the way but this was no problem as we had our own transport and the staff run regular shuttle buses into town. The receptionist also arranged and booked trips for us from the front desk.

Myself and my partner spent just two nights in Flashpackers but I would have been more than happy to stay longer.

Our bus was late into Noosa so the shuttle bus wasn't at the station to bring us to the hostel when we arrived - but after one phone call the shuttle bus dropped by especially just to pick the two of us up. On arrival we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff, and could already tell that the place had a lovely chilled out atmosphere.

We had a double ensuite room (room no. 1 in case you want to request it!) which I have to say was the best hostel room I've ever stayed in. Very very clean, large ensuite/wetroom, tv, our own fridge, air con and a bunk bed which had a double bed on the bottom and single on top - very comfortable and nice clean sheets.

I'm seriously scared of bugs and insects (I know, Queensland was probably a bad choice!) and reading reviews on tripadvisor of other hostels I had psyched myself up for the fact that hostels tend to host more bugs than other accommodation but our only visitor was a tiny spider - very impressed especially given the lush green surroundings.

The kitchen was big enough for everyone and kept very clean, everyone there was respectful and we met a lovely bunch of people, just wish we'd had more time there to get to know more of them.

Even after we checked out the hostel said we could stick around and use the kitchen/lounge for as long as we wanted until our bus arrived and even let us leave our luggage there while we went to the beach (although it didn't look like there was anybody who was going to watch over it - so perhaps don't leave your valuables behind if you're going to do this).

The only downside is that it's about a half hour walk away from Hastings street and that end of town, but the shuttle does bring you out there if you're willing to wait around for the next one going, sometimes it can be a long wait because there are a good few pick up points the bus goes to around town so that's why theyre not running ever 15mins. Had we not walked it at night I'm sure it would have been a nice walk though! - right beside the national park. Also Sunshine beach is only a 10minute walk away and it's beautiful.

Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone going to Noosa, especially if you're looking for a quieter hostel, just wish they had Flashpackers hostels everywhere!

Room Tip: Room number 1 - it's beside the laundry room so can be a little noisy with the pipes going in th...

What a fanstastic place to stay. I have been traveling up the east coast for 3 weeks now and this is the best hostel I have stayed in to date.

The facilities are clean, plenty of space in the rooms (including abundant and well placed sockets for power and lockers), and great common areas.

Other Awesome things:
1) free wifi & pc use
2) free breakfast (basic but free)
3) regular shuttle service to points around noosa
4) The staff are very friendly & helpful
5) great beach nearby

Plus Noosa is such a chill place that this has been a great stay. So glad we detoured here and would recommend this hostel to anyone!

I stayed here for 3 nights it was a lovely hostel! There was a great atmosphere and everyone was helpful especially the owner Warick! There is free Internet and a free courtesy bus that picks you up from the bus, drops you to Coles or to the town on request! For $25 a night it was the best value hostel we stayed in on the East coast of Australia. We got the girls dorm for 2 of our nights which had some lively touches such as colourful lockers, a hair dryer and straightener in the bathroom and pink duvets! This was a brilliant hostel a little out of town but with the bus available for use it won't bother you!

One of the best hostels I have ever been!
Very friendly stuff, clean rooms, free shuttle service, free WIFI, well furnished and moderate rates. Definitely a place to stay longer! During the day there is a shuttle service departing every hour to the main beach or the supermarket.

Nice little hostel. Was more like staying in an appartment. Nice lounge area with TV. Free breakfast. Location could be a little better. There is no nightlife near by. So u are pretty much stuck to the hostel at night.

Hey Laura, thanks for your nice comments. Noosa does offer about 5 Nightclubs and plenty of bars apart from being renowned for its great eateries, so bus, taxi or 15 minute walk gets you to the middle of town. The hostel is a lovely place to chillax though - you're right!

This is probably the nicest hostel I have stayed in. Friendly and welcoming environment and very clean. Staff were very helpful and helped with travel plans and costings. Location is slightly out of town but there is a free shuttle which either takes you into town or the beach and getting picked up is easy.

Highly recommend and would love to stay here again.
