Here is a really nice backpacker, clean and friendly have never failed to strike up conversation when I am here about 3 times a year. Staff last time were all friendly and helpful and likeable and there is Anytime Fitness close by so I was happy. Come here to chill out not a party hostel in winter but a nice...

I really enjoyed staying at flashpackers! The pickup shuttle from greyhound, free breakfast, free wifi, clean and comfortable rooms, familiar atmosphere and a home cinema :-) just perfect! It is also located near to the beach and I would everyone reccomand to have an afternoon walk at the beach, so beautiful!

We ended up staying here a lot longer than planned due to good old cyclone Debbie! When we first checked in the reception wasn't overly great but the owner and the American receptionist were super nice! When we did finally get to our room our beds weren't ready but it was better than having to make your own bed! They...

This hostel does not live up to its name "flashpackers" at all! To advertise that this hostel is better than the basic hostels is totally wrong. As there is: No air con in the rooms (they have a floor fan than makes hardly any difference to the temperature and is so loud), no lockers, they close reception constantly throughout the...

I stayed in an ensuite double room with fan (no air con) for $80 a night which was worth it but only just. As hostels go it is not bad but is suffering I think from the flight of backpackers to Rainbow Beach as the Fraser Island hub. Therefore it needs to reinvent itself to keep people more than one...

I've wanted to stay at this hostel for a while as all of my friends recommend it and say how amazing this property is. Danielle our reservation agent was super friendly and helpful. We stayed in the private double room, super comfy and the most powerful showers i've ever been in haha! The hostel has a great common area, cinema...

The Flashpackers Hostel in Hervey Bay is definitely number one of all the hostels I've visited during my backpacker life in Australia! The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need for cooking meals and is pretty clean aswell. They've got a nice pool area, a cinema room and a big common room. And they've got special events like free...
