The Flashpackers Hostel in Hervey Bay is definitely number one of all the hostels I've visited during my backpacker life in Australia! The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need for cooking meals and is pretty clean aswell. They've got a nice pool area, a cinema room and a big common room. And they've got special events like free...

Flashpackers Hervey Bay is definitely the best hostel I've stayed at during my so far 6 months in Australia. I've been there twice and will definitely choose it again when traveling through Hervey Bay. Both the dorms and the private rooms are really clean and comfortable and they have amazing ceiling showers. The common area is really nice and clean,...

+ Kitchen + Pool (even if it was pretty dirty) - No Wifi in the rooms - No lockers !!! - No aircon in the whole complex - luggage storage costs extra - fan was so loud that we didn't hear our alarm clocks in the morning - beds were dirty (sand everywhere)

Fantastic friendly staff with excellent facilities and a very nice pool. Our only downfall with this place was no aircon in the heat of summer, there are fans but only if your lucky like us do you get a big giant fan :) Great free breakfast in the morning, the walk in fridge is also fantastic (also great for if...

I camped there for five days and it is $15 for the first and $12 for each next person per day. The breakfast in the morning is really nice as well as the cinema! The pool was great! The hostel could use some renovation though. All in all I could have stayed there longer!

Stayed for five nights, an awesome atmosphere, friendly and super generous staff and management, & plenty of things to entertain from BBQ nights to wine & cheese or a movie, or a quick swim. Comfy bunks (most DON'T squeek!) & Everything's clean. Would recommend anytime to anyone, a great place to meet others & have good relax & recoup :)

Stayed here before my Fraser island tour. Really nice hostel. Rooms are spacious. The shower is amazing! Clean and well kept. The Common areas -large and clean. Somewhere you actually want to cook. Lots of movies to watch too. Swimming pool area is lovely! They also do a shuttle run to the bus stop and pick you up off your...

I don't expect much from hostels, but they should be clean and from staying in excess of 15 hostels around Australia they more often than not are. This is also the first time I've given less than 4 stars to a hostel or motel on TripAdvisor. At Hervey Bay Flashpackers the communal areas were clean, but our private room was...

Thanks Ryan! You write under the name honest review which you should be. However you leave out the fact that you have already left a similar review on the 24th November in your partners name. It seems you didn't appreciate our reply and have written again. Interestingly you answer all your issues/problems/questions and even throw in a few nice points...

Really great clean hostel with fast wifi and a fully equipped kitchen! I thought the location was good and the staff are so friendly and helpful! Comfortable sofa lounge room too which was so nice as not many hostels have this!
