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...

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.

The reception makes a really goid first impression but thats about it. The rooms are alright. The pool is filthy. The dinner deals are a joke! Do not make the midtake of buying them... There is never enough food. The bar at dingo is , at the very least, satisfactory. It closed at 9 one time and they actually kicked...

Frasers on Rainbow Beach is a really good hostel. It has been renovated, so all the rooms look amazing! The rooms and bathrooms were clean. The dinner portions could be bigger, but they are totally fine for only $7 and there is always a vegetarian option - sometimes the vegetarian options are vegan as well. When you get up early...

Freshly refurbished, this place used to be in very poor condition. They renewed everything and the rooms are now actually really good. If you have already been there before I recommend you try it again now! Cheers to the very nice people at rainbow beach
