Stayed here for the first time back in April 2013, loved it then. Was a great chilled out place, everyone there was so welcoming and friendly, and all the staff were brilliant.
Having stayed before when i was travelling on my own, i found it a great place with lots of helpful staff with great knowledge of the area... When i came back last month the whole atmosphere of the place is very different.
The new backpacker staff are not suited to the type of hostel it is supposed to be. The guy who checked us in was nice enough, but didn't speak to us the whole time on the shuttle bus, gave us no information about the hostel and basically gave the impression he'd rather be off with the other staff.
We stayed in a 4 bed room which was in the block which the staff seemed to use as their common room/kitchen. While we were there, the rule on drinking was broken every night by the staff, making loud noise right outside our room.
Generally i don't ever bother leaving reviews, just feel that the manager needs to address this, as it could be a great hostel and i have enjoyed staying there previously.

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.
