I stayed at Dolphins for 3 nights and I loved it. The hostel itself is laid out really nicely, every two rooms has its own kitchen, bathroom, lounge and outdoor seating area so there's only 8/9 people sharing the same facilities.
The hostel is only a 5 minute walk from Sunshine Beach which is nice and quiet but a reasonable distance from Main Beach and the town centre. However the hostel does offer a free regular shuttle bus if you want it alternatively the walk through the national park to get there is great ~ beautiful views of the beaches and little coves to spot sea turtles. Highly recommend it!
From the little contact I had with the staff they seemed friendly and cleaned the kitchen, sitting areas and dorms frequently. The wifi was also free. Would definitely stay here again.

The owners are experienced travelers themselves, and Dolphins Beach House reflects their love of travel, with many exotic artifacts from India to Burma and Thailand. Once you slip past the gardens, the trees, the funky pink walls and the Guatemalan architecture, you'll realize that you have found a restful retreat.It's no wonder that Dolphins Beach House is Lonely Planet's best pick for Noosa for 2010 / 2011. Relax, unwind, enjoy.Our friendly staff are always happy to recommend where to go and what to see next. Office hours are 8:00 am to 7:00 pm ... more less
