Had an amazing stay at the dingos hostel with a nice bar and cheap drinks there. My favourite tour on the east was the dingos 3d/2n tag along tour with our tour guide Muzza!! He absolutely made the trip he was funny and just had as much fun as us. We saw a lot of awesome spots like lake Mckenzie,...

Our Fraser Island tour was the highlight of our East Coast trip!!!! The 4x4s you get to drive are so much fun. All your food is provided and I loved that you prepare and cook all your own food with your group. The food was really nice too, which I was surprised about. There were great cooking facilities provided and...

This hostel seems to basically JUST be a transfer point to Fraser Island- it fills and empties daily, and I arrived to a bunch of recently returned zombies in my room haha no one even looked up when I entered and said hey! The day beds are an awesome touch if you're waiting all day for whatever transfer after checkout,...

Hi Lauren, thanks for your review - we love that you enjoyed our private room and also appreciate your feedback about daily entertainment and volume at night and gonna improve that soon :) It's never very nice when it rains anywhere, let's hope it'll be a nice dry sunny winter! Enjoy your further travels and drive safe :) Cheers Dingos...

The reception is not friendly. From 8 pm everything is closed, from the laundry to the portals. We left our clothes turn into the washing machine to go eat (in the kitchen, no gas operated) and back put them in the dryer the laundry was closed. And nobody wanted to help us, they all said they couldn't do anything and...

Hi Liouba34, we're very sorry that you had such an experience with us. Unfortunately we cannot keep the laundry open longer due to neighbor noise complaints that's why there are signs with opening hours in the laundry everywhere. The Bar is open till late and staff is always happy to help out with any issues you might have. All cookers...

We loved this tour. From the offset it was organised well, we were grouped for our car which was then the same group for our cooking/food. We were in the lead car for the first day, with our tour guide Muzza, who really made the trip for us. He lifted the atmoshphere with his jokes, music and knowledge of the...

I absolutely loved my tag-along Dingo's tour on Fraser Island. I had 1 night in the Dingos Backpacker Resort and I wished I could've stayed a night extra after the tour cause it's so much fun! The bar at the hostel is so much fun and cheap as well, the rooms are basic but has everything you need :) Fraser...

Booked this hostel and the three day two night Fraser Island tour through Peter Pan travel company. The hostel itself is very loud. If you are not looking for a party hostel do not book this hostel. The music and parties go on past 12 midnight even though you must be up at 6 to leave for your Fraser Island...

Hi Emily, thanks for your opinion. Our bar in Dingos Hostel is indeed a fun and loud place where you can have heaps of fun till midnight as everything shuts in Rainbow Beach latest at 12pm so everybody who wants can get a good rest for the next day. Regarding your points for the tour, it's true we can't have...

This hostel was exactly as expected from reading previous reviews with two bars, two pools and a 5 minute walk from the beach, there was no shortage of things to do. There is a pancake breakfast every morning but unless you get up at 7am, you are likely to miss out on that. Very sociable hostel but a very high...

First of all, let me state that Fraser Island was just awesome - clearly one of our east coast highlights! However, we had pretty bad luck with Dingo Adventure, especially with our tourguide 'Jonesy' and the 'introduction guide'. The tourguide was completely weird, most of the time he seemed to be confused and could hardly speak one straight sentence. We...
