Free paddle boats and a guide each morning. Free trip to Noosa on Sunday so be smart and get dropped off their if you intend to stay there. Kitchen not well equipped so buy easy to make food. Good vibes from staff and guests.

I had a great time at this hostel but mainly because of the people, particularly the long-termers, that were staying here. Really welcoming and friendly. The staff however need to be more accommodating. It's very business-like with no personal feel. They do u no favours! There r signs and notices all over the walls and a very strict 9:30 curfew...

I booked a private double room with ensuite while on a visit to the Coast to catch up with friends. Let's start with the positives...one of the three staff members I interacted with was very friendly. That's about all I can come up with as a positive. Now for the negatives...the room was extremely basic and the bed was the...

I booked a double room with ensuite. What I got was worse than a prison cell - bare concrete block walls, a double bed with a mattress that was really squeeky and lopsided, a rickety wicker chair and nothing else apart from the shower/toilet. No night table, no cupboard, not even a shelf. All my things had to stay on...

I enjoyed this hostel from the first moment!!! The stuff and the guest are like a family and always helpfully! The rooms are very clean and the free activities are sooo good.

I really enjoyed staying in this hostel, it is friendly and offers a host of free stuff such as equipment hire. I especially enjoyed the stand up paddle board lessons/sessions with Sam. A great way to start the day/break up the afternoon. Free WIFI, free breakfast, free fun!!!
