Liked: Good location, close to the esplanade and the beach. The staff are super friendly and can help suggest things to do. They also offered to do pick ups and drop offs from the bus station and can hold your luggage for you if needed.

Liked: Not far from the beach, there is a shuttle bus that can pick you up/take you to the greyhound bus stop, but you can't catch it then its only a 15 minute walk. Really friendly staff that help with any problems and can book trio for you e.g. Fraser island.

Disliked: Quite far from a supermarket, WiFi doesn't always work if there are a lot of people using it

Liked: Comfortable, clean, homely feel hostel. Very chilled atmosphere with some great extras. Great for leaving your belongings when going to Fraser Island. Highly recommended this hostel.

Disliked: Oven in the room needed to be cleaned as it had food scraps ect that was burning making the kitchen and rooms smokey. Lack of communication with the pick up times were the only downfalls.

Liked: The place had a real homely feel to it with each 4 bed dorm having its own kitchen and living area. It was very comfortable and clean and the information about what to do in the local area was incredibly helpful as we were only there a day!

Disliked: Nothing really to dislike, great service, very friendly and a generally nice place to stay!

Liked: Best hostel we stayed in Australia! They really live up to their name (superfriendly staff). Free pick up from bus terminal. Very nice rooms and you only share your kitchen with 2 other rooms and each unit has its own living room with a tv. The staff was very helpful and gave us a good overview of where to go to.

Disliked: Absolutely nothing. Stay here!
