Liked: Lovely self contained units so you have use of a kitchen and living room and outside area between around 7 people, free wifi in rooms and free bike hire so you can easily explore the surrounding area- pretty quiet, defo not a party hostel but great for a bit of time out! Also they collect you from the bus terminal for free should you need it which is great!

Disliked: Air Con in Rooms is extra but there is a ceiling fan

Liked: Very clean and cosy living units and big rooms. Every unit has its own living room, kitchen and bathroom. There have been three rooms with 2 or 3 beds each in my unit and we have had a great time. Free Wifi is slow, but still good to have.

Disliked: It's a very boring 20 minute walk to the next Woolwoths and a 10 to 15 minute walk to the beach. But it"s the location where most of the other backpacker hostels in Hervey Bay are, too.

Liked: Hope is very helpful. If you want to book a tour then definitely talk to her as she knows a lot. The property itself definitely feels like home. The wifi is slow but it is free so we cant really complain. There is also a free computer to use and free bike hire. The hostel is 5 mins from the beach and 15mins from Woolworths.

Disliked: Towels are extra to hire whereas in the 'welcome' booklet it says they are free. Also the booklet mentioned hiring hairdryers but they do not have these available. The book is definitely out dated and needs updating.

Liked: Good internet, nice and quiet hostel and extremely helpful staff. We stayed here either side of our fraser island tour and the staff arranged after hours check in and kept our luggage which was a great help. If your looking for a party hostel this isn't one but it is a great place for a good nights sleep after a busy tour.

Liked: This is basically an old house that has been turned into a hostel. Rooms were nice and spacious. Had a kitchen and living room which was nice. Free pickup from the bus station!

Disliked: Location was not great, hostel was pretty dead as far as night life is concerned. Seems like most people were just there to get to Fraser Island.
