Clean and simple place to stay

I stayed here before i headed off to Fraser Island and again once I returned. It was basic and clean and there was nothing substantially wrong with it. The rooms were quite large compared to any other hostel i had stayed in and were well set out. Hervey Bay doesn't have a lot to do so if your only staying one night then I would recommend. However the storage facility is a shed hidden away amongst the garden and striked me as a little unsecure when I was just given the key to go and put my stuff in it myself. If anyone else's stuff had been stored there and somebody wanted to steal it, it could have gone missing. That said my suitcase was still there when I returned and was probably too heavy for anyone to consider stealing :grin: . Its a spacious hostel and i would recommend. Toilets and showers seemed to be very clean.

I don't know if this hostel was newly renovated but it was def well maintained. I stayed here for a while and had a really good time. The bar and the quiz held everyday at 6:30pm really encourages everyone to mix so its easy to make friends. I made lots of friends here. Jo the manager is so helpful too. The swimming pool is also always nice and cool unlike the Lagoon pool which heats up and turns into a bath in the afternoon in the summer months. So nice to go back to the hostel pool after the lagoon for the afternoon. Went out quite a lot with people i met from this hostel. Definately and highly recommend. I am planning to go to Airlie Beach again and I will stay here again when I do!!

This was one of the worst hostels I stayed in on my trip. But thats not to say it was terrible. I found the dorms were quite spacious and the staff friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were like a big warehouse. It did have quite a few showers so you weren't likely to ever have to wait for one. I stayed in the older building I think, it just wasn't that great. I probably would check out other hostel reviews in Brisbane and stay somewhere else if i ever go to brisbane again.
