The hostel is very run down. It needs a major uplift. Maybe they can exchange a paint job or something for accommodation for any working travellers. So that's my 1 out of 5. Two 5/5s--the atmosphere and the location. The atmosphere I think was more because of the residents there than anything, but still good. Everyone was really friendly, I'm pretty shy but had no problems socialising so that's how good it is. The location is excellent. 10 mins to the biggest mall on the Sunshine Coast, cafes and bus stop to another major shopping centre on the next block, library (and free Wifi) on the block after that, and 10 mins from the Greyhound bus stop (which is in front of the visitor information centre). If you rent a car there's plenty of parking around. Oh and it's on the water as well, nice view. So 1+5=3.
