Reviewed March 24, 2014

We stayed 3 nights in this Flashpackers and appreciated. Clean, modern and friendly. we felt a little bit older than the other guests, but we'll recommend it to mature travelers looking for budget accommodation. The double with ensuite is very quiet and comfortable, the loundge &kitchen really warm with all we need. The same for Harvey Beach.

Room Tip: Ensuite room with A/C, TV for a very good price.

Wow!!! From the Flashpackers pick up van to the pool to the kitchen to the rooms to the hair straighteners!!! Wow wow wow!!! A great place to stay in Noosa, I had previously stayed at Halse Lodge which was dirty and had terrible cooking facilities, it may be a bit on the outskirts but I really enjoyed either the walk in or catching the van!!! The all girls room in pink with a hair dryer and hair straighteners was bliss as was the wine and cheese night and all you can eat pizza night! The staff are fantastic and made a real effort to get to know everyone staying! It made me feel like I was part of one big family! Rare when it comes to hostels! So stay at this little gem of a place, kick back and relax and enjoy one of the most chilled out and friendly places in Oz!!! Staff at Noosa Flashpackers I send you all hugs and kisses!!

The only disappointment me and my boyfriend had was that we only stayed for one night. Noosa flashpackers was without a doubt the best hostel we stayed in during our time in Australia. Very friendly atmosphere without the rowdy and intimidating feel you sometimes get in larger hostels. The room we stayed in was beautiful and guests are offered free tea and coffee, free breakfast, wifi and use of surfboards - felt like we could have been in a hotel.

My boyfriend is diabetic and staff were extremely helpful in storing his medication, plus one receptionist took the time to be interested and was an all round a fantastic representative of the hostel. In addition, a shuttle bus picked us up and dropped us off in town and at the bus terminal (free of charge). Again, we enjoyed talking about our trip to staff and really appreciated the recommendations we were given. In turn, following our stay we recommended this hostel to everybody we met who was travelling to Noosa or Hervey Bay.

Thank you for making our time in Noosa so worthwhile.

Good shuttle service. Hostel is a little way out of noosa. Would probably take 30mins to walk to the beach. Air con in two seperate rooms was poor and didn't really function properly. Kitchen monitored by cctv and fines imposed if you don't clean your stuff!! Seemed that they were strict on this but not other things such as one staff member openly told us to not be suprised if people have sex in the dorms at night. Mattress old and could feel springs in it. Very creeky beds.

Thank you or taking the time to write your review, we understand we are a 15 min walk into town and that is why we offer a free shuttle bus service round Noosa. We are so lucky in Noosa to have 5 beaches but Sunshine beach is only a 10-15min walk max from our Hostel. We pride ourselves on being an extremely clean Hostel and have won many awards through trip advisor and hostel bookers for our cleanliness. The cctv cameras are there as a security reason but yes they are handy when it comes to finding guests who leave dirty pots and pans and leave the kitchen a mess, and I'm sure you agree it’s not nice to try and cook in a dirty kitchen with dirty equipment. After speaking to the staff they do remember a conversation about sex in Hostels, they didn't say “it will happen in our hostel” just that it does happen which is something that we do not encourage, but is also something that we cannot control. I'm surprised to hear you say that we have old springy mattresses as we are only 3 years old! Maybe it’s time we flip all the mattresses and see if that helps. We hope you enjoy the rest of your Holidays.

Stayed here for a couple of days when visiting Noosa. Was recommended by a friend and so glad we stayed here.
The room was very comfortable and the air conditioning actually worked! Free tea and coffee (and breakfast) was a nice bonus.
Lovely communal areas and very kind/friendly staff - they would have gone out of their way to help if you needed. Walking distance to one of the beaches and nice restaurants; hostel shuttle runs regularly to the other beach which is handy.
Could definitely have stayed here for longer if could have had longer in the area. Thank you for a lovely few nights stay!

Plain and simple this place is astounding.
We arrived at this place and even from the first moment the vibe of the hostel set us at ease. The staff were so friendly, helpful and chatty within hrs we decided to extend out stay for two more nights!

Once we checked in, we were taken to our room which was a tidy twin room with a private bathroom. The quality for a hostel was VERY good. Almost like a decent hotel standard. The hostel also provides a breakfast which is basic but very good, and plenty of things to do - like pool, swimming pool, board games, surf and body board hire. Also the fact that they provided a shuttle bus to all the major areas in town including the different beaches was fantastic. Only slight complaint was that they do switch off the AC during the hrs of 11am to 3pm (to save on costs). So on a lazy day we were sweltering - but this is only a Minor thing - as we spent almost all our days outside.

Brilliant
