We had one night at the Woolshed after our fraser island tour. We stayed in a private room with ensuite bathroom. The room was good and the bathroom with shower and bath was huge. The staff was very friendly and knew about nice places to go and eat and have a few beers. We had a great stay and could...

Around 10 mins away from the airport, this hostel has great rooms with a really cool woodland cabin type feel to them. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. The staff were helpful upon checking in and out. Our room (private double) was much better than hostel standard with a lovely double bed, lots of space and good wifi although you're...

A nice stop over before or after a Fraser Island trip. The room was really nice however only 2 showers/ toilets for a while block of people's (maybe I missed something). Really nice kitchen and great staff. There is a free shuttle to the Torquay Greyhound stop if you book it the night before. Be warned though, there are no...

Thanks for your feedback however you are misinformed. many of our rooms have en suites including 2 of our dorms. Bathrooms can get busy especially when half the hostel is returning or leaving for Fraser Island at the same time. Woolworths is a 20 minute walk and foodworks is only 5 minutes walk. There is also a pubic bus if...

I stayed here for 2 nights and I found that the room and bathroom was tidy and clean. Staff were very friendly and made time to talk to us during our visit. Reception staff we're also friendly and helpful. They offer a bus service to and from which I thought was great. Especially when you have a heavy backpack 👌

Thanks for your feedback, Having clean facilities and friendly staff are extremely important at the Woolshed. We're happy to pick up and drop off guests to the Torquay bus stop between 7am and 7pm, however if you are taking a late bus, train or plane we can recommend a public bus or taxi service. Happy travels

I only stayed here for one night but could have stayed longer. The rooms were all so clean and nice. The showers were proper showers. The kitchen and lounge area was really comfortable. Shout out to Dara and Adam on reception who were so chatty and lovely and really helpful!

Nice facilities, kitchen common area nice, but not enough space for cooking! Also lack of pots and pans and utensils. Toilets clean and nice, but not enough! Often had to queue. Laundry available...

Thanks for your feedback. All our rooms are individually decorated which is part of the Woolshed charm and character. We are always looking to improve the Woolshed and have recently added another sink to the kitchen. These are shared facilities and sometimes at peak times which is usually just before check out and around 6.30 when guests return from tours...

Very nice hostel! Clean and cozy rooms with relaxed people. Not a party hostel but still social. Kitchen was good, a bit crowded though. Nice staff! Bathrooms were clean and roomy. Only thing that was bad was that it was a lot of ants in the room/hostel area.

Thanks for your feedback and were glad you enjoyed your stay at the Woolshed. The kitchen can get busy at dinner time when we are full so we encourage guests to use the out side cooking area. We've recently done some renovations to this area and are always trying to improve the facilities without causing to much disruption to our...

After a weary and miserable trip to Fraser Island, our next stop was Hervey Bay. Not only is the town small and charming with enough to offer in order to make our stay comfortable, the Woolshed Hostel was an absolute treat. We had stayed in some dirty, miserable places, but here was the complete opposite. Friendly service, spacious, clean rooms,...
