“Definitely the best hostel in australia!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Hostel modern, very clean, relax et great atmosphere, staff really friendly and helpful. Easy to meet people in this place. The shuttle bus is convenient & drop you off to the shops & beach,it runs all the day. Some geat evening events with free BBQ or cheese & wine are appreciate by everybody. Free brekfast, free wifi, free surf hire, a lot of free stuff! I ever travelled all around Australia in many hostel, and this one is definitely the best one for me, hope I will come back again!

Room Tip: Female dorm is cosy and perfect with ensuite bathroom (hair & straight hair dryers included!).

This is a great hostel to stay at! Its comfortable, clean, very modern and has a great atmosphere. Very easy to meet people here and staff are very friendly. Slightly pricey than other hostels but you get what you pay for. The shuttle bus into the shops and main beach runs frequently.

We were travelling as a couple and stayed in a private room. It was generally quite clean and nicely decorated, very nice bathroom and TV in the room was great. Overall despite being very busy, it was quiet and peaceful.

Some negatives that can be improved - The bed was awful, the mattress desperately needs to be replaced cause the springs dig into you while you sleep and I only weigh 55kgs. Also they only ask you to bring your sheets and pillow cases to be washed, our duvet cover didn't look very clean, but this is not unusual for a backpackers. The bathroom has no curtains or blinds and the windows aren't frosted glass, which was weird. So we had to hang a sarong across the window so the neighbours couldn't see in while we shower. WiFi is not well suited for a full backpackers and drops out at busy times of day when everyone is using it.

I might stay here again if they get new mattresses, but I think for the price it's not so fantastic. Decor makes it look good but for me a comfy bed is more important.

The staff were very friendly and helpful! We had a car so location was good for us.

Hi Mrs MV, thanks for taking the time to review us.
Our private rooms are smart, modern and trendy. The shower is a feature being designed with glass panels so it doesn't require a shower curtain. Our lush topical garden directly outside the floor to ceiling shower panel provides the necessary screening. So the shower is a little bit edgy! C'mon live a little..
We will check the mattresses again for comfort. Contrary to your belief, we do wash the entire linen. (Duvets included) Actually as a guest in a private room you are not required to strip the beds and we do this thoroughly after departure.
In peak periods our FREE WiFi is in high demand and on rare occasions it may drop out but our staff quickly reset this if told, for all to use again.
We do appreciate reviews but would prefer to be informed of any problems while guests are staying with us so we can rectify the situation immediately and make your stay the best it can be.
Noosa is a wonderful place and we hope you enjoyed the beaches, walks and restaurants while you were here.

I should probably start by saying this was the first hostel I'd ever stayed in and only stayed here with my partner to keep costs down on our road trip. We hoped this might be better than your average backpackers on account of its name but it was very basic. This wasn't necessarily a problem as everyone was friendly enough but the location is pretty bad. You have to rely on their shuttle service or have a car to get into town, but maybe I should've done a bit more research!

Dan, you say this is your first backpacker experience so we find your review very harsh as you have nothing to compare us to. I would be very confident that after travelling for a little longer and staying in other backpackers, then returning to us your review would be vastly different.
As you say you stayed here "to keep costs down". Yes we are a budget accommodation provider but we do also pride ourselves on being very clean (receiving top 3 in the cleanest hostels in Oceania), provide FREE WiFi, computers, breakfast, 2 pillows per person, amazing 8 inch shower heads, lockers, power points, individual bed lights, great friendly and helpful staff, the list goes on, that sets us apart from the backpacker market.
As you say we provide a shuttle service all day from 8-8 for those guests who prefer not to walk. Perhaps you missed the fact that we are a 10 minute walk from beautiful secluded Sunshine Beach, 15 minute walk from the locals shopping centre and only 2 minutes from the Noosa National Park.
Your research may have been better placed in understanding what hostel life is about. From the look of your other reviews, a beachside front location overrides quality every time.

I stayed here for 3 nights in a 4 bed dorm. The room and the rest of the hostel were kept very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful and took the time to advise me on where to go and what to see during my limited time in Noosa.
One minor complaint was that the kitchen was a bit small for the number of guests staying there (but the place was fully booked!), which meant there wasn't much room to store food and there was often a queue for the stoves.
Overall, really enjoyed my stay here and wouldn't hesitate to return if I was ever passing through!

Thanks very much for taking the time to review us. We do have great staff who are very helpful and welcoming. It's funny you mention the kitchen as others think it's plenty big enough for everyone. Usually that's the place you get to have a chat with someone new or at least brush up on your culinary skills!
