Folks here are lovely, really nice location - right near the lake which is awesome for sunset. Came here at the start of winter and was still amazing. Staff are helpful and very friendly. Nice common area for meeting people. Will definitely be back.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Amazing location by the river and beautiful, clean facilities, wish I could have stayed longer. Noosa itself was a beautiful town and Noosa backpackers resort was the perfect base to explore it from.

I stayed one night in this hostel and wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer. There wasn't much atmosphere, although I did stay on what was apparently the one night of the year that the bar and restaurant were closed (Easter weekend). The good: free Wifi, free shuttle bus, receptionist very friendly and helpful The bad: bathroom crawling with ants,...

Thanks for your review Ruth. You are right that there are only a couple of public holidays that really affect us the greatest and good Friday is one of those. Never the less sometimes the crowd in can differ greatly, so atmosphere can sometimes be hard to create. This has become far more prevalent since the inception of smart devices...

Thanks for your review. Like most reviews i have had over the years it could always be clarified by asking the question. There are many other toilets throughout the premises and in fact the ratio is 1 to 5 throughout. Ants can come in during weather changes and is you really want to stop them then the chemicals are not...

Our group visited the bar and restaurant at this place. The bar has great atmosphere and drinks are well priced. We ordered pizzas to compliment the drinks and they were pretty good as well. While not on the main restaurant strip along the water it is located only metres away and makes a pleasant change from the normal. Worth a...

Thanks for the review Russell. So glad you were able to find us as we are one of the best local secrets, unfortunately? Not sure, but we think it has something to offer off out of the mainstream.
