Awesome Backpackers”
Had an amazing time at Flashpackers, Awesome location, awesome staff, clean and well appointed dorm rooms and free breakfast each and every morning. Nothing to fault at all, even had a shuttle bus to Stockland Shopping Centre (Greyhound/Premier Bus Terminal) almost each hour and a shopping Rum at 5pm-6pm.

Cosy and sociable hostel. Friendly staff and excellent kitchen facilities. Free bike hire - but tyres were all flat and brakes didn't work on the others. Please sort before someone has an accident :). Overall lovely stay, would return.

They had bikes to use...but all were broken (so fix them!) dirty cushions in kitchen to sit on. maybe a few hooks on the bedroom walls for towels n things & some pictures or posters on the bedroom walls? maybe sweep the bedroom floors of sand sometimes, or leave a broom for the guests to do it! very bland decor everywhere. 1 friendly staff.

Fabulous chilled hostel ”
This hostel was great. It had a real home from home feel. The kitchen facilities were the best I have encountered in Australia. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a pool, cinema room, comfy lounge, washing lines to hang laundry, nice showers. They run themed evenings and allow BYO drinks. There is a regular free shuttle to and from the greyhound stop/ large supermarket. The only complaint I have is that the room was stiflingly hot. There was no air con and just a small free standing fan that did very little to cool the room. Needless to say sleeping was a very hot and sticky experience. Nevertheless I would highly recommend this place to the traveller who is looking for a nice home from home hostel and not a party hostel.

Good location”
Pro- location is great, quiet place to chill before Fraser Island tours. Would stay here again. Con- Toilet light was out & told reception but didn't get fixed so kind of difficult to go to the bathroom in the night time, lots of things out of service like movie room & boiling water machine in kitchen. Also, if you arrive to reception when the bus is out picking up from the terminal you can't check in until they arrive back as there seems to be only one person working on reception?

Bill, Lyn and their staff were very helpful and kind. Really encouraging me to stand up and get well after cancer treatments.:) I loved the breakfasts and free computer use to research Hervey Bay and Fraser Island or other destinations. Very generous with courtesy bus, continental breakfast, free coffee and tea during daytime. Free sausage sizzle on Friday nights. The actual bed was perfect. No fault found. Just the pillow protector had someone else's bloody drooling stains on it when I took the slips off for washing, it looked awfully disgusting. I'd had my head on it for 7 nights. Yuk!!! Never mind. Am not letting this minor incident stop me going back. Bill and Lyn run a magnificent Flash packers.

One of the best hostels!”
Staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful. They do a free shuttle bus pick up for greyhound buses. Free breakfast was brilliant, free tea and coffee All day and they even do free BBQ and wine and cheese nights every now and again! Rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. Good showers and a nice lounge area. They offer luggage storage for $5 for the duration of your Fraser Island trip. Location was great, just a short walk to the beach!

Good place to stay”
The location is great, everyone is so friendly there and a great place to use as a base
I really enjoyed my stay there. The staff are so friendly and the shuttle minibus from the bus station was great. I stayed in a four bed dorm all ladies and was great even the shower was a nice size. The hostel puts on breakfast and it's a nice area to dine. The location is close to the road which leads to the beach and if walk a bit more one way there are a nice couple of cafes for lunch or just chill with a coffee.

Immaculately clean hostel . Good stay”
Spacious private rooms, very comfy clean bed, nice swimming pool
I enjoyed a comfortable stay @ Flashpackers HB. The room (private double) was very big more like a studio apartment, nice ensuite bathroom, large projector screen cinema room, large pool, very clean kitchen facilities however no oven just stoves. However I find all the staff to be quite rude here and never at the front desk which is quite annoying. (Apart from the older man who met us at the greyhound depo on our arrival he was really nice but never saw him again during our stay). One woman was so rude to me after returning from my 3 night camping @ Fraser Island bare in mind I hadn't had access to a bed/shower/toilet for 3 days whilst at Fraser so I just wanted to get into my room and shower, she was then awfully rude when I checked back in I considered relocating hostels (just because she was flapping as she had 3 people checking in ...) . I find the Flashpackers at Noosa is a million times better, amazing helpful kind staff, much more modern at Noosa!! So I was slightly disappointed with my overall stay at Hervey Bay flashpackers. The rooms don't have aircon which is awful in the summer heat! And the wifi connection isn't great either. I also think the atmosphere during my stay at Hervey Bay flashpackers was quite , dead... Just abit boring no one to really socialise with. The hostel is also a good 25 minute walk to any decent food and shops (at the junction). One perk is the 'KATMANZOO' cafe/takeaway across the road from the hostel which sells good breakfasts, burgers and chips etc and coffee and cold drinks. That was good however everything else is pretty far away. I would stay again but it wouldn't be my first choice.
