- In 6 bed room, the beds were one behind the other, separated through a small wall, so that you had some private room
Clean Strong wifi connection Good location Friendly atmosphere Nice grounds Room was very good value for money Bed was comfy
Did have problems with a trialled bus service but the hostel owner was quick to respond to our feedback and make sure that it wouldn't happen again for future guests.
Noise from the traffic
Comfy and were pleasently surprised compared to the cost :) very laid back Nice atmosphere and ok looking rooms
Not throwing paper in toilet was the only negative thing that comes to mind
first impression: very relaxing, die hängematten im garten möchte man nicht mehr verlassen, kitchen very clean, beach reachable by footwalk, good choice for an accomodation stay if you want to go to hervey bay and/or whale watching
I forgot by returning the key at check out to ask for my key deposit and though I got it not back.
This place feels like a mini nature reserve with everything you need. It has amazing facilities - the kitchen and bathrooms were always immaculately clean. The outdoor bbq and hammocks is a nice touch. The price was very fair for the double and deluxe double rooms. As an Aussie myself, I really loved this Aussie backpackers. Brent went way beyond the expected client service and stayed back after closing time to help us book a last minute tour to Fraser Island. My South American friends and I were blown away with his hospitality. A great family-owned backpackers that doesn't feel like a backpackers.
The fridges in the kitchen I think need replacing. The kitchen itself though is great and the aussie touches are amazing.
I had a very pleasant stay at the Woolshed. The hostel has comfortable common areas both inside and out, with the ktichen/lounge in an interesting old wooden building that is nice to spend time in. The kitchen is well equipped and kept very clean. Wifi works quite well, despite (or maybe because of) a slightly annoying voucher system for login. Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff.
Dorm room was a bit small and bed not super comfortable, but they were adequate, and there are plenty of common areas so no need to spend a lot of time in the room. It bothered me that there was no hand soap provided in the shared bathroom. Please help ensure basic hygiene among the people I am sharing space with!
Beautiful wood cabins. Great staff. Even though I spent 3 days with non stop raining was the best place to hang out.
enjoyed my stay there, was in a 6 bed-dorm. Lockers available in the room. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Free wifi if you book any tour with them. Nice common room.
Only two showers.
Good sized rooms Comfortable beds Pleasant surroundings Nice staff Car park
No bath mat Tin roof - very noisy when raining! Also noisy when creatures were scrambling around! Room very close to shower block; it was quite noisy at times.
Staff friendly and helpful, hostel immaculate.I would definitely stay there again.
Friendly, welcoming hostel. Really like the old style woolshed in parts. Our room was upgraded upon arrival & we had a free sausage sizzle that night. Staff were accommodating & gave us advice about things to do. Loaned bikes & cycled along the prom.
Very helpful and friendly hosts, clean and quiet, cool kitchen and common room, free parking and close to the beach - so everything you need in Hervey Bay!
Wow, this place really impressed me, such a quiet, comfortable tranquil place. Beds were fantastic, everything clean an owner was friendly helpful. Just what I needed after staying in busy 8 bed dorms.
I loved the privacy of having a ensuite room. Otherwise very pleasant stay and lovely surroundings. Would stay again
A/C hire to be advised at outset
Spacious, tidy rooms, nice prople at reception - reafy to help. Excelent cooking facilities at kitchen and barbecue. Parking is free even when you go to Fraiser tour if you booked tour through them.
Noisy in the morning because of birds and possums. But we enjoed it :-)
Nice garden, 3 bed ensiute with bathroom was really nice!
The general setting was very nice. Very quiet.
The garden, the cleanliness and the comfort of the room!
Quite and peaceful location and atmosphere. Massive lockers in the rooms and plenty of space in dorms. Lots of outdoor space with hammocks to relax in. Short walk to the beach. Helpful and friendly staff. Hostel has lots of character.
Could do with a couple more toilets and showers, and an oven in the kitchen. Bear in mind that the budget dorm doesn't have air-con.
I liked the hammocks and the garden generally.
It miss a swimming pool. The girl at the reception is not very friendly.
Beautiful backpackers, really clean and the green space it's just really nice
I do think that the reception needs to work on how to receive people because they can be really unfriendly sometimes...
Reception really helpful. Free wifi & bag storage if tours for Fraser/lady Elliot etc booked with them. Upgraded to en suite room, worth it definitely value for money.
no soap, shampoo, noisy, a long way to facilities.
Cheap and cheerful laid back backpackers, staff is really helpful. The company we arranged our Fraser trip with (dropbear) picked up from the accommodation. Few minutes walk from the sea front with places to eat and shops.
