I spent time here a few months back and It really did make a positive impact on my oz backpacking experience. The people that worked there or some that stayed awhile and worked there like myself really embraced and encouraged a community spirit of offered help and passing it on. All were welcome from the sun loungers, beach combers, long...

A very nice place, few minutes walk from the beach and shops and restaurants. The hostel offers all kitchen facilities, and the rooms and very nice and clean. They also offer free surfing boards so you can save money. Very cool place, management aims very friendly and helpful. A bit pricy but I guess like everywhere else on the Sunshine...

This backpackers is just across from the bus stop so very convenient location and close to the beach and shops. Reception closes in the middle of the day for a few hours so be aware. You can use bikes for free and sign up for free stand up paddle board lessons. That was awesome! The first night I was there...

It's a good stay, and the staff at reception are beyond great. The kitchen that is provided on each floor is too small for the amount of people it has to hold, and that goes with the fridges as well. It's overall a quite dirty place, even though you see staff clean it. The staff who cleans and works for...

The apartments could be filthy and you can't move around easily when you have to think about staying clean all the time. There's no free wifi that me and a friend thought were included. The wifi was very expensive. But, you can rent a bike and surf board for free which is good. Free breakfast. the check out is at...

At the moment my favourite hostel in Queensland. Could use a few improvements but very worthwhile for a short term stay. The beds are comfortable, there is a great common area, the staff are knowledgable and very willing to help you, and there's a kitchen/common room on every floor so it doesn't get too busy. The pool is also well...
