I've written a review for this hostel 6 times without it being published for some reason! I'm that passionate about how bad a hostel experience this was that I'm gunna try one more time. Summary, massively overrated hostel, not tranquil and peaceful when you're put in a room with longer termer and when its only you and them in a small apartment, you feel like a guest in their home. Our roomate snored horrifically and I ended up sleeping on the sofa, only to be woken up by the most arrogant (loved himself staff member) banging on the bin "cleaning" our kitchen and then watching you tube videos on his phone..no good morning or anything. I also found out from another swedish backpacker that he'd called someone a F*****g idiot in swedish when asking about the bus timetable, which is not acceptable considering it's his job to help backpackers. If this review doesn't get publish word of mouth is also an effective tool and I've been spreading the word about my experience here. Two positives for this hostel, the wifi and the pick up from the bus stop.

- Chill out and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Dolphins Beach House at beautiful Sunshine Beach, Noosa.This secluded, hippy-style haven is the closest hostel to the beach in Noosa, situated next to Noosa National Park with a boutique shopping village just one minute away.The ambience of this family-run hostel is quirky and unique - definitely not part of a franchise backpackers business. 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
