FREE PANCAKES EVERY MORNING. just got to get up early but it’s worth it! Then go back to bed Rooms are clean and spacious with a toilet and shower per room. Few fans per room. I stayed in two different rooms, one had a lovely balcony. There is a open kitchen that you will get black on you regardless of...

We had a one night stay at this hostel. The room we were in was full of idiots quite frankly and from what I could hear it's what they get quite a lot at this hostel. They were loud and rude and woke us up at 5am to shout across the room to ask the time?? Like seriously?! The kitchen...

I was here for 2 nights, not in a row. The room wasn't so clean... had to wash my feet before getting into bed, because of the filthy floor. Like most of the hostel I stayed on my 5 week holiday in Australia, soundproof is a word they don't know. My first room was next to the stairway... you get...

Rainbow Beach is honestly a Wate of time and money, the prices for anything are so high compared to Harvey Nay. There is absolutely nothing in the town , the beach is littered with horse poo and vehicles drive all over the beach with no care for people simply walking on the beach. Camping at Inskipt Point is disgusting, drop...

Do not make the mistake we made, this hostel (well it does not deserve that name) is horrible. We booked for 2 nights, but within half an hour after check in we discovered we only needed 1 night because of upcoming excursions. We made a honest mistake but there was no way to cancel the second night because we already...

For me, this was my favourite hostel on the east coast. It was the cleanest one by far- the bathrooms and bedrooms were impeccable. The bathroom was the only one that didn't have a gritty material floor that dirt clung too. All of the 8 bed dorms had one bed that was a double that I was lucky enough to...

First... Fraser's on Rainbow and Dingo's are one and the same. Literally the same place with two signs next to each other and loads of shared facilities. Second... The hostel us a Backpackers hostel, it's got the things you expect (the good and bad). Finally... It's really big and sort of impersonal as far as hostels go. All that said...

We checked in today and had lots of time to shop and eat but decided not to because of the meal deal we were told started at 6.30 pm. We were there on time but had to stand in Line. We ordered at 6.35 pm, and were told there was no food and we had to leave. We went to...

Restaurant badly organised. Many rules for dinner and drinks which makes no sense at all. Happy hours are vague and you get very small portions for dinner. Furthermore, dorms are good. Bathrooms arent clean and many hairs everywhere.
