Nice place clean/ tidy Staff not so friendly as other places I've been too. Good rooms and kitchen to make your own food. Really good location near to the beach and also near to the local shops. We were in a 4 bed dorm room. They had a pizza and Dvd night

The Kiwi dude on staff gave me REALLY bad directions for where to leave my bag when I went on the Fraser Island tour, and I ended up leaving it outside reception hoping they would find when they opened in half an hour before someone else did. That was super NOT cool. Everything else was really nice. It's really close...

I stayed here five nights before and after my Fraser island tour. It is a really nice hostel with cute corners to relax. There is a shuttle going eight times a day to town which is super good, cause it would be quite a walk. Every two rooms shared a kitchen and a bathroom. The kitchen was cute and well...

We had a good stay (only 1 night) at the hostel. It is very close to the sunshine beach and shops. A shuttle bus runs several times a day and brings you to the beaches or Noosa junction. We also enjoyed the outside area of the hostel with comfy seating areas and several hammocks. Would recommend this hostel to everyone!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Chill out and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Dolphins Beach House at beautiful Sunshine Beach, Noosa.This secluded, hippy-style haven is the closest hostel to the beach in Noosa, situated next to Noosa National Park with a boutique shopping village just one minute away.The ambience of this family-run hostel is quirky and unique - definitely not part of a franchise backpackers business. The owners are experienced travelers themselves, and Dolphins Beach House reflects their love of travel, with many exotic artifacts from India to Burma and Thailand. Once you slip past the gardens, the trees, the funky pink walls and the Guatemalan architecture, you'll realize that you have found a restful retreat.It's no wonder that Dolphins Beach House is Lonely Planet's best pick for Noosa for 2010 / 2011. Relax, unwind, enjoy.Our friendly staff are always happy to recommend where to go and what to see next. Office hours are 8:00 am to 7:00 pm ... more   less
