This hostel is so clean! I think I haven't seen a hostel that clean. I had a really good rain shower. The kitchen was large and well equipped. The shuttle service to the bus station is a big plus, especially the one at 5 o'clock so you could go to shopping center. The only negative point is that most of... More

When a hostel charges 80 dollars for a private room you expect a basic standard of cleanliness - such was not the case at Flashpackers.

I went there for a night after Fraser Island and I appreciated the calm of this place and how everything was clean. There is free breafast. Room was confortable. Shower and toilets were outside of the room but closed. Wifi didn't work in the room but was ok in the share rooms

The staff were quite friendly and the pool was lovely. Only problem was we were in room 13 and had to walk in... More

I've been travelling now for over 3 months, this place is by far the best place I've stayed in. Very welcoming staff, nice atmosphere and very clean! Gutted we had to leave in the end. Oh and the manager Abbie loves to be called baby girl, so make sure you do that..

With a basic breakfast included, this backpackers is clean, cozy and caters for all the facilities which you'd want a backpackers to have. Basic bunk bedding with modern and clean bathrooms. We don't often stay in backpacker hostels, yet this was definitely pleasant and the staff were both friendly and accommodating.
