“Great place to stay”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Me and a friend stayed here earlier in the year and had a great time. Rooms are clean and a good size and had a nice bathroom. The communial areas are very nice and spacious and have a big tv and good kitchen facilities. Staff are very helpful and friendly and there is a nice outdoor pool and seating area to chill out. Noosa itself is great and i highly recommend staying here.

This is a gorgeous hostel, very nicely decorated, has a lovely pool at front and standard of the kitchen and common areas are excellent. The seating areas are all open plan so it can be quite loud if the television volume is high. The room was clean, beds were comfortable and had a good ensuite and shower. There is also a light and electricity socket at each bed. Breakfast (cereals and toast) is available free of charge each morning and the staff were very helpful, booking activities and providing lots of local knowledge for restaurant recommendations and things to do. As the hostel is located at the edge of Sunshine Beach, it's about a 20/25 minute walk from Noosa Heads. However, the hostel provide a frequent shuttle bus from the hostel to Noosa Heads and Main Beach. Would recommend!

Excellent that we were picked up from our coach and had somewhere to leave our bags while we waited for our room!
Spotless communal areas, really nice quiet room with a book exchange, including magazines!
Room was huge and bathroom amazing, more like a 4* hotel than a backpackers!
Pool area was nice and great free shuttle bus around town. Good location for sunshine beach too.
Only downside was room was opposite a shared bathroom so woken up by people slamming doors to use that, but v minor.

My wife and I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights.

Positive:
Modern, clean, clean, clean!!! Rare for backpackers hostels in Aussie!
This backpacker hostel is very cosy. They have a huge space to relax and watch movies.
Facilities: swimming pool, barbecue, kitchen, laundry, dryer, free wifi, play games, books etc.
We booked a double bedroom. The room was big and the bathroom was great. Best shower in Australia hostels! Apparently the dorms come with their private bathrooms.
They have a free shuttle to drop you or pick you up down town every hour.
The staff is super friendly. They organize pizza dinners, grill parties, or wine and cheese nights.

Negative:
Walls are not well isolated and it can be a little bit noisy. 20 min far from center.

No doubts! The best backpackers hostel during our Australia journey!

We stayed here four nights in a double room with ensuite. The room was beautifully decorated and had cable tv and good reading lights, but the shower was really a surprise! This was the most luxurious bathroom we ever came across in a hostel. It had a large walk in rainshower, with a glass wall with an outside view. (But don't worry, no one can see you standing there because of the plants in the garden). The only thing we didn't like about the room is that there is no place, like a closet or anything, to store your belongings. The room itself is kind off small and when staying four nights you want to unpack your backpack. So you have to place everything on the floor. But this is just a minor issue.
The place has a very nice vibe to it, very relaxing and not a party hostel.
There are two very large and modern fully equipped kitchens, and a big tv area with comfortable couches to relax on.
There's free breakfast provided: coffee/tea, cereal, milk, bread, butter, jam and peanut butter.
Free wifi is very much appreciated, but works in reception area only.
The only downside to this place is that it's a 15 to 20 minute walk to Noosa center. But since we had a rental car, this didn't bother us much.
We totally recommend this place.

Thank you for taking the time to write great review. We agree our Private rooms are lovely especially the showers. We understand that it would be nice to hang your clothes when you’re staying with us for a while, so thank you for that feed back we are in the process of figuring out what we can do to create more storage area in the Private rooms. WE are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels.

We were initially booked into Flashpackers through Dropbear Adventures for our Fraser Island trip and I'm so glad we did! We booked a private double...bed was huge,so was our shower (best shower I had in oz) and staff were so nice. Really good atmosphere in the hostel and there was a cinema area, games, pool etc. They ran a shuttle bus into town every hour however we always walked as its only about 10 minutes and its lit up at night.Would definitely recommend it to anyone planning to stay in Noosa who doesnt mind spending a little extra for a bit of comfort and bette facilities.

Good place to stay in Noosa. Located a little bit away (about 15-20minutes) walk from shops but really good shuttle service in place. Rooms are clean. Staff are very helpful. Only thing that annoyed me was the fact the tv room& kitchen & reading room are all connected & some people like to watch the tv at full volume- very rude in a communal setting & though there were staff around they didn't tell anyone to turn the tv down& I mean it was blaring!! But apart from that it's a good spot!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We here are all pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and hope that you can return in the future. We understand the TV can be a little loud sometimes and it would be quite annoying, will do our best in the future to keep on top of the volume so it doesn't disturb the other guests. Safe and happy travels.
