Mooloolaba Beach Backpackers
Reviewed 22 December 2011

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.

I live here for 3 months while working near by. The place was really awesome to stay at. The staff always went out of there way to help you, whether it be looking for work, booking tours or finding buses etc. Security is very good and any issues are dealt with very quickly. It is a very safe place to stay. The rooms are very clean and the cleaning staff will change your sheets if you request it. Everyone gets together downstairs for drinks, but it always quiets down by ten if you need to sleep. Nice and close to the beach too. There are free bikes and surfboards to hire as well. Free bbq on saturday nights and there is quite often cheap deals going on whale watching etc.

Room Tip: Rooms on the far side from the court yard are quieter

We stayed here since everything else was booked up. It's terrible... The beds screech, the walls are dirty, no blinds in our room, the fan that's installed in our room couldn't be plugged in because that cord was too short. The sheets were dirty and there were bugs in our room.

On the plus side, free rental of surf boards and boogie boards were nice and the staff was very friendly and courteous... Still though, not enough to make me come back.

As this was the first time i'd bought my boyfriend to Oz, I wanted him to see the amazing beach where I have so many fantastic childhood holiday memories. Unfortuantely we arrived right smack bang in the middle of school holidays when you can't get a room for less than 3 nights under $150. We booked a double room with ensuite for $70 and have to say it did the job nicely...wasn't too noisey as it was midweek, and the staff were very friendly. As we were heading back to Brisbane in the afternoon, they let us keep the car in the carpark while we had a swim.

Only a five minute stroll to the beach, and close to the wharf as well. I noticed they also had meal options at the hotel which were very reasonably priced if you're on a budget.

Nice one Mooloolaba - you never disappoint!

At $28 for a dorm you expect more. We were in a 4bed dorm which was clean but the bunkbeds made more noise than you can imagine, no one could sleep if you just turned over. Doors were slamming all through the night because they do not have anything to slow them down. Alot of people seem to be working on farms here so you get alot of noise at 5am. The showers were not hot and just dribbled on you.
The curfews were all at 8pm, I dont like to stay up all night every night but 8pm they stop you goin out on your balcony which is ridiculas. It is not a cheerful place to be and for a more expensive hostel i expected better facilities and service.
Only good thing is the location.
