The best place we found on the East Coast bar none

After spending a lot of time (and money) on inferior accommodation along the East coast, we stumbled upon the Friendly hostel almost by accident - it was one of many in the Lonely Planet. We were in luck though! Here was a hostel with proper sized beds, which you didn't have to make yourself, a large, clean kitchen shared between a maximum of six people, and staff who were truly friendly and knew virtually everything there was to know about Fraser Island. Absolutely the best value for money and our most comfortable stay on the East coast.

$60 a night for a "twin room" - in reality a breeze-block box barely big enough for two single beds, plus no air conditioning, no lockers, and no windows - was far, far too much. The only redeeming feature was some good advice about trips around the Whitsundays, hence 1 star. Otherwise it would be a big fat zero... Do NOT stay here unless you have completely run out of other options.
