Stayed here while traveling solo but quickly met lots of really friendly people both travelers and locals.

Great location, very friendly staff, but unacceptable overpriced private rooms. Would never ever stay there again and only booked it as it was the only affordable private accomodation option left in noosa around the specific time. Value for money however not meeting my expectations: smelly double room backdoor, not so clean shared bathroom, noisy dorm room next door and upstairs....

I had a short stay three day long weekend at Noosa. Stayed at Noosa backpackers Resort. New improvements, wonderful food at Global Cafe, William Street. Atmosphere at night was buzzing. Friendly staff, very helpful, the chef served up nice breakfast with dinner just right for us. The wall space with the murals was something unreal. Compliments to the master artist...

We were leaving early the next morning before reception opened and she also...
