When I first arrived at the hostel, the staff helped me out through my tough struggle of no money and no idea what i wanted to do! I managed to secure a farm job in my second day I was there. After only 2 days of booking in at the hostel , I ended up staying for overall 6

Perfect example of a hostel that does not care about their clients. We stayed here over the weekend with friends we were a group of 5 in 3 different rooms. All had a mould problem in the bathrooms that would take months to get to this standard. Two of the bathrooms fans were not

Response from MooloolabaBackpacker, Manager at Mooloolaba Beach Backpackers

Hi MikiT. Thank you for your review. I spoke to your group upon check out and what you have 'quoted 'seems to be slightly off the mark. Please be more accurate when quoting staff so that it is a true representation. The vents have been addressed with maintenance. The hostel is undergoing renovations as we speak.- This includes updating wifi boosters on each floor as you would have seen the electricians & other contractors here over the last week . There are a lot of improvements happening in stages in the coming months which will see room improvements. We have just replaced every single mattress with inner spring & frames are in the next stages. Renovations do take time, but we are really excited with the plans in place. We definitely do care about our guests. We provide a free recruitment for local farms and farms vary between hourly & piece rates. Guests who are doing their regional work have requested their rent day as Friday as farms pay wages on Thursdays, so we have merely done this to benefit our guests. As you selected to be on our free job recruitment, one would think this would appeal to you. We get a lot of return guests and recommendations for having this service, i apologise that it didn't live up to your standard. Everything you mentioned on check out is being addressed. We have 24/7 onsite staff to address on the spot issues should they arise. We wish you all the best in your future travels & would love to make it up to you should you return this way :)

My room upon arrival
"Ensuite and double rooms are both awesome! Pool views and balcony and kitchens on each floor"
"The rooms in the other block looked much nicer, from the outside. No experience of what they were like inside."
"balcony rooms are handy as its nice to get outside in the beautiful weather as much as you can."
"$34 for an ensuite room, worth it. Pay for 6 nights and get one free!!"
"Good rooms is the private ones with own bathroom, or the non mixed dorms."
US$42 - US$62 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
