One of the best hostels i've ever stayed in! Very friendly staff, clean rooms, bathrooms and kitchen. I especially liked the free surfboard and kajak hire and the free shuttle! I would defenitely stay here again!

This is the 3rd time I came back to the hostel. The staff is great. Brittany and Ania at the reception do everything they can for you to make your stay amazing.

I stayed one night in this hostel and wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer. There wasn't much atmosphere, although I did stay on what was apparently the one night of the year that the bar and restaurant were closed (Easter weekend). The good: free Wifi, free shuttle bus, receptionist very friendly and helpful The bad: bathroom crawling with ants,...

Thanks for your review Ruth. You are right that there are only a couple of public holidays that really affect us the greatest and good Friday is one of those. Never the less sometimes the crowd in can differ greatly, so atmosphere can sometimes be hard to create. This has become far more prevalent since the inception of smart devices...

If you're bothering to look at a review before booking the place then don't book this place! we've stayed in many hostels & this is the worst yet. if it was really cheap we wouldn't mind but it's also the most expensive hostel! lots of bugs everywhere, massive cockroaches on BEDS, the bathroom infested with ants. 1 toilet between 12....

Thanks for your review. Like most reviews i have had over the years it could always be clarified by asking the question. There are many other toilets throughout the premises and in fact the ratio is 1 to 5 throughout. Ants can come in during weather changes and is you really want to stop them then the chemicals are not...

Our group visited the bar and restaurant at this place. The bar has great atmosphere and drinks are well priced. We ordered pizzas to compliment the drinks and they were pretty good as well. While not on the main restaurant strip along the water it is located only metres away and makes a pleasant change from the normal. Worth a...

Thanks for the review Russell. So glad you were able to find us as we are one of the best local secrets, unfortunately? Not sure, but we think it has something to offer off out of the mainstream.

I stayed in a female dorm for a couple of nights at Noosa Backpackers Resort and LOVED IT.

Thanks for you review. Unfortunately we are all guilty of driving the price up by booking online with the high commission based booking lines. In the end the customer has to pay. Travelers really need to discover a new way and that is buddyau.com this is commission free and will help drive prices down. Going through a laundry into a...
