“great value”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

Stayed for 2 nights in January. one either side of our trip to Frazier Island. Two couples age 50+ and 20+. rooms are a little on the tight side and only one had air con, but they had great character.The facilities were great, out door cooking facilities, large TV room, fridges and bring your own drink allowed. Toilets and showers are spotless and only a short walk from all rooms. Staff are friendly, our key was left out for us with no waiting to book in even though reception was closed when we arrived. we left our car on site while we did 2 days on Frazier Island (5usd) .very quite at night time for a great nights sleep. highly reccommend this to young and old.

A really nice hostel. A really nice place to chill out and rest after the Fraser island trip. We arrived late on a greyhound bus and the owner seemed annoyed we'd called late but we checked in okay. There was good, convenient pick ups to and from the greyhound station.

Stayed in a clean female dorm in a nice comfortable bed. The hostel is located close to the centre (walking distance) and since we booked a tour (Fraser Island) at the hostel we got to park our rental car for free and got free wifi.

We stayed in a double room in this hostel, it was lovely and clean and just like a hotel room! It had a tv and DVD player with access to DVDs from the reception! The bed was comfy and the showers/toilets and kitchen were all
Spotless!!! It was a quiet hostel but really nice atmosphere! It was family run and the staff were extremely friendly and always there for advice! I would really recommend this hostel!!! Best hostel we've stayed in!!!

Reviewed 24 December 2013

Unlike your regular backpacker's hostel this was extremely quiet and chilled out. Other guests seemed to share this vibe and this made for some nice laid back and friendly conversations.

Private ensuite room was great, bathroom outside so was a bit worried about wildlife and insects but nothing in sight. TV a good addition.
The whole feel of the place is rustic with wood and trees everywhere, but it's extremely charming. Hammocks outside are a great place to chill out with a book and the communal area is comfy and the kitchen is practical.

Location is good, short walk down to the esplande which has a shop and a couple of places to eat. Beware however that everything shuts down VERY early in Scarness so don't expect dinner or a drink after 9.30pm! Not much else to do or see there unfortunately other than a walk along the beach, so have a good book to hand...

We spent two nights here before and after our trip to Fraser Island. The room was clean and comfortable with a private bath. The courtyard area had a great grilling station and the kitchen/common are was large and comfortable.

Well located within walking distance to restaurants and a bus stop located directly in front. The Woolshed is tranquil and cosy as indicated by the previous reviewer. This is not a place to stay if you are looking for a party - I was not so it was perfect. The staff was friendly and helpful.
