Liked: Was only a small hostel, but was a good stop off before visiting Fraser Island. Were more like you were in apartments as you had your own living, dining and bathroom area which you shared with only a few people. The beds are really comfy!!!

17 September 2006 would recommend this property

Liked: The staff is incredible friendly. They really do whatever they can do to make your stay an enjoyable one. The Hostel gets cleaned every day the facilities are usually spotless. Plus, it is really, really safe. The dorms have good sized lockers, every room has its own key and every unit (with 3 rooms) has an own key as well. Not a place to party but definetly the best hostel in Oz so far.

Disliked: left no negative feedback.

19 July 2006 Laura would recommend this property

Liked: A fantastic hostel to stay in! Cannot recommend it highly enough! A real home away from home - just what you need when you've been travelling for months. Sheryle and Gary are so welcoming, they help you with anything you need and even recommend other places to stay in Oz for your future travelling. We have had an amazing time and extended our trip here - best hostel we have stayed in Oz. If you're travelling around the East Coast make sure you stay at the Friendly Hostel in Hervey Bay!!!
