We stayed here for a night and arrived pretty late. If we would have had a choice of finding another place at that hour we would have, because the room and hostel in general was dirty!!! The NZ guy who welcomed us was really nice and helpful so we had a positive attitude upon arrival. It was so late that we just wanted to go to bed, but first I had to clean at least 20 long, dark hairs of my bed. The floors were really sticky (wear flip-flops at all times) and the walls and cupboards were full of stains and spillage from other travellers. In addition the blinds were broken and there were heaps of dust and dead flies in the window sill. The mattress was so thin that I could feel the planks under the mattress.The room would have been really nice if they had just cleaned it properly and fixed all the broken stuff in there. The pool was never an option to use since it was surrounded by dirt and empty beer bottles. When I complained before paying the staff was very unprofessional and there was never even an option of paying less than the 31 dollars it costed per person. Would never stay here again, and it is without a doubt the dirtiest hostel I have ever stayed in within Australia.

When arriving we were told we had a double room with TV and ensuite, we actually had a 4 bed dorm but were assured nobody else would check in to that room. The girl even made up an excuse that all her private rooms had been booked out for weeks, which is no excuse as we had booked one. The hostel is clean though

I had a really great itme here, but it was mostly because of the wonderful people I met and stayed with here for several weeks. The hostel itself is kinda run down and dirty, with an ill equipped kitchen, and bathrooms that get filthy because there is no separation of the shower to the rest of the floor. We told one cleaner about this and he said he didn't care. Rooms dont get cleaned everyday (i guess because the cleaners dont care..) Despite all this I had an amazing time. the location is great, beach and nightclubs and pubs nearby. If service and cleanliness had been better this place would be getting 5 stars from me!

My friend and I stayed at Mooloolaba Beach Backpackers for only 1 night. We stayed in an ensuite bedroom. It was pretty clean, we're happy about that. We met only one staff and she was friendly enough.

We love the location as it's quite near to the wharf and underwater world.

We left early so we didn't have the breakfast. There is a kitchen but the kettles are worn and stained pretty badly. Utensils are not very clean.

Nevertheless, we had a comfortable stay.

We stayed here one night, bed was so much better than YHA beds. But still not a hotel bed quality.
No aircon , but a good fan worked perfectly. Had good service, free toast and coffee for breakfast.
Overall great value. Had some specials like cable wake boarding only $25 for 2 hours. Bargain. Included all hire of gear etc.
Would stay again no problems at all.
Also has a pool and a pool table.
