We stayed for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in a double room and the room was clean and tidy, the bed comfy and the communal shower area was also clean and tidy and looked recently renovated. The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming, recommend for anyone travelling to Noosa :)

The hostel itself was pretty nice. We stayed in a room of 5, and each 2xrooms of 5 had their own bathroom and kitchen/fridge etc which was convenient, we didn't struggle much with needing the facilities. The rooms are pretty small and no lockers, and people don't really lock the doors either. Wifi was free and worked in the rooms....

The hostel is very nicely furnished and decorated, the whole atmosphere is very chilled. Unfortunately it is quite far away from the actual center and you have to walk a lot or take the shuttle and there are prohibitive signs everywhere which destroyed the atmosphere a little...

We had a nice stay here last week. The staff were all friendly and kind. The common areas were very clean, we hadn't seen a clean kitchen in weeks and it was lovely however our bedroom was far from clean. Understandably when you are near the beach there is sand everywhere but the rooms were so so tiny and under...

This hostel is very basic and I guess what you expect from a standard hostel. However staff aren't welcoming and the rooms are small and cramped. The facilities including the bathrooms also seem dirty. Good if you don't care about cleanliness or your here for very little time. But three nights here is enough for me

The management have no idea what they are doing. They were rude, arrogant and disrespectful. We were sitting with the manager of the reception and he let us know that it was 7 pm music off. At 6pm the rude manager/owner came out and told us that it was late and we had to leave. As a back packer this...

This hostel is in a great spot if your wanting something a little bit out of town, and really close to sunshine beach, just a quick couple minute walk down the hill and you're at a beautiful beach. There is a shuttle that runs, but the times aren't too frequent, the last one goes into town and comes back at...

Stayed at dolphins beach house for two nights whilst touring the east coast of Australia and it was by far the worst hostel we stayed in throughout our trip. The staff were unfriendly, it wasn't clean and the shuttle bus service that they off was awful. They offer free surfboard hire, however you have to leave a 100 dollar deposit...

I stayed in a 5 bed dorm room this week with some friends and it was so perfect! The staff was friendly and helpful, the room and the facilities were clean and well maintained. Free WiFi, free surfboards hire and a lot of fun! Its the place to stay in the Sunshine Coast!

Stayed in a double here and the room is so nice. One of the nicest hostels we've stayed in! Kitchen was lovely. The decor makes it here. The incense sticks reminded me of home...there's so many nice touches here. Unfortunately they were full otherwise we'd have booked an extra night, but we'll def be back!! The bus also picks you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Chill out and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Dolphins Beach House at beautiful Sunshine Beach, Noosa.This secluded, hippy-style haven is the closest hostel to the beach in Noosa, situated next to Noosa National Park with a boutique shopping village just one minute away.The ambience of this family-run hostel is quirky and unique - definitely not part of a franchise backpackers business. The owners are experienced travelers themselves, and Dolphins Beach House reflects their love of travel, with many exotic artifacts from India to Burma and Thailand. Once you slip past the gardens, the trees, the funky pink walls and the Guatemalan architecture, you'll realize that you have found a restful retreat.It's no wonder that Dolphins Beach House is Lonely Planet's best pick for Noosa for 2010 / 2011. Relax, unwind, enjoy.Our friendly staff are always happy to recommend where to go and what to see next. Office hours are 8:00 am to 7:00 pm ... more   less
