Really quiet and nice hostel, the perfect place to organize a Fraser Tour and relax before moving on. They got a nice kitchen and a nice garden. Moreover the prices are really good. Would definitely come back!

Stayed here before and after our Fraser Island tour. First night was a twin room next double, both the same price buy the double was much nicer. Nice facilities, kitchen common area nice, but not enough space for cooking! Also lack of pots and pans and utensils. Toilets clean and nice, but not enough! Often had to queue. Laundry available...

Very nice hostel! Clean and cozy rooms with relaxed people. Not a party hostel but still social. Kitchen was good, a bit crowded though. Nice staff! Bathrooms were clean and roomy. Only thing that was bad was that it was a lot of ants in the room/hostel area.

After a weary and miserable trip to Fraser Island, our next stop was Hervey Bay. Not only is the town small and charming with enough to offer in order to make our stay comfortable, the Woolshed Hostel was an absolute treat. We had stayed in some dirty, miserable places, but here was the complete opposite. Friendly service, spacious, clean rooms,... More

Staff are lovely and friendly! The hostel was clean, had a great common area with a TV, sofas etc. And a well stocked kitchen. They had a ranger bring in snakes and dingos and all you had to do was donate a gold coin. They provide discounts on tours and a free shuttle to the bus station. Great value for... More

I came to this hostel after my Fraser Island tour with Palace Adventures (which was very cool btw) They have a shuttle service from the Greyhound busstation Torquay. There was some spots to chill, I prefer the hammock! The kitchen was really clean and had free coffee as well! The showers/toilets was clean. During the day I was just hanging... More

This hostel is the cleanest hostel we have ever been to! The staff at reception are super friendly and the kitchen is well equipped for making basic meals. We even took full advantage of the BBQ. The only downfall is that the walls are so think we could here EVERYTHING from the rooms next to us, to the point where... More

Great location close to the torquay greyhound stop- about 10-15min walk max. Close to the beach. You can book a tour to Fraser island which is probably the cheapest we could see. Nice style of hostel. Comfy beds. Good kitchen and bbq area. They have storage lockers which you can pay for. Remember a padlock. Clean. Check out of room... More

This is a great place to stay. Relaxed setting with hammocks, bean bags, spacious, awesome atmosphere, and last but not least, super friendly and helpful staff. We were here last week, and decided to come back as we enjoyed it so much.

I was looking for hostels in Hervey Bay and the Woolshed struck me as one of the more professional ones in the area. An easy walk (20 minutes at most) from the Greyhound stop, I was welcomed into the fold immediately by Adam and Dara on reception. They answered any questions I had and got me ready for my tours....
