“Dirty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2008

While the set-up of the place is a welcome difference (apartment style), the place is just plain dirty. The bathrooms are moldy. The furniture is old or broken. And, there was a four inch hole in the bathroom between the sink and the floor. It was fine for one night in Noosa but I'd see what else is out there.

For a budget backpacker, this is one hostel with lots of character. It has a really cool open air lounge area with sofas, hanging chairs and a pool table where most of the guests hang out and mingle. The staff is very helpful as well.

But cleanliness and upkeeping of the place still leaves a lot to be desired. No problems with the linen, but the rooms and living areas seem kind of old and dusty and lighting isn't too good at night.

In terms of location, it's about a 10min drive to Hastings Street where all the shops and eateries are located (the hostel is located at Sunshine Beach). The street where the hostel is situated is quiet and peaceful.

All in all, a nice place to chill out and decent enough for an overnight stay.
