Stayed here for 1 night, it was clean & good. The rooms were really basic more like a prison but clean & did the job so would still recommend. On site parking that was free & wifi in the reception area. 5 min walk to a beautiful bay & another 3 mins to the main beach & restaurants that were...

I never thought I would live in a hostel, until this one. At first using the kitchens can be a bit tricky with limited supplies, and despite regular cleaning - the hostel is still dirty like a house within minutes of the cleaning finishing. The location is amazing.. worth a few days to enjoy the chill city, beach front, and...

come and feel the home.Stayed here for 2 nights but wish it was longer, they picked me up from the bus station and as soon as I got there I knew I had booked the right place. The kitchen is big enough for several people to cook at one time, the rooms are large enough and very clean with lockers...

Great place to meet people, beds were horribly uncomfortable and the people in my room were up most of the night partying so I did not get a good sleep, but didn't expect much else from a 25$ a night backpackers place.

This backpackers balances social and and out of control so well! There's great communal spots to sit and get to know people but they also send the party away from the rooms late at night to keep the noise down! Shannon is the best manager I have met at a hostel, friendly and kind to everyone but still runs a...

We've booked it with a friend as it's right next to the bus stop and we needed a place to stay for the night. Big mistake. It made our experience of Mooloolaba terrible. The room was for 4, which is supposedly good compared to 12 bed dorms. Although it was disgusting. The person who lived in it must've been there...

Hi There, We are so sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. I have investigated this matter and whilst we do our best to keep the ants and moths at bay, doors open with lights on are always going to attract insects. We live in Australia - and ants file right before rain which was the case in...

I stayed here for 2 nights in a very small 4 bed dorm. First and most important thing, there is no air con! Fans are provided in the rooms but all they do is push warm air around the room! Curtains and very thin, they may as well just not have curtains as they don't block out any light! Beds...

At first glance it doesn't look like much but this hostel was a lot of fun. Everyone was incredibly friendly, including staff, and I met a ton of people without even trying. The wifi is only in the lounge but it reaches the balconies and is good enough for Netflix and skype. They have daily activities and lots of freebies...

Something to do is organized every day, and usually, they are free activities. There is the possibility to use bike or boards for free and this is very...
