I stayed here for 2 nights in a very small 4 bed dorm. First and most important thing, there is no air con! Fans are provided in the rooms but all they do is push warm air around the room! Curtains and very thin, they may as well just not have curtains as they don't block out any light! Beds...

At first glance it doesn't look like much but this hostel was a lot of fun. Everyone was incredibly friendly, including staff, and I met a ton of people without even trying. The wifi is only in the lounge but it reaches the balconies and is good enough for Netflix and skype. They have daily activities and lots of freebies...

This review has just extremely positive or extremely negative aspects. The location is good, the beach is not far. The guys of the staff are amazing, everybody kind, always smiling.. very nice. Something to do is organized every day, and usually, they are free activities. There is the possibility to use bike or boards for free and this is very...

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...

Thumbs up for the front office team that gave such lovely service during my stay there. They were so friendly and helpful at times. In addition, there are so many free interesting activities to do here but so sad i got no time to try it. I had a bed in mixed dormitory room with bathroom inside and it's quite...

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...
