This is a working hostel in Caloundra about a 15 minutes walk from the grey hound drop...there is no shuttle and the hostel doesnt answer emails. Tired and dirty with a clicky atmosphere. Awful beds and no a/c. I wouldn't recommend a stay here.

"Go somewhere else!"
"Take a look before booking if possible, some rooms at the rear won't be affected by the other guests sitting outside the front late at night. If you can afford the room with ensuites, go for it."
