Our car broke on Fraser Island and we were left stranded. Palace offered us a free ride off the island and even let us use the shower before heading on our way. Some of the most genuinely nice people I've ever met

100% would recommend this tour! It's very well organised and it simply amazing. We got to see all of the sites on Fraser Island including a plane ride over the whole island for a largely reduced price of $60. My friend and I were on the trip with a great group of people. Fraser Island is the most beautiful place...

Came here with a friend as part of the 2 day/night trip to Fraser + 2 days stay in Hervey package. The hostel is great, all the areas are clean and the staff are friendly. There are 4 free computers to use as well as WiFi and a cinema room. The kitchen isn't massive but it seems the hostel is...

Booked two nights with this hostel using Base Jump cards. Told them we'd be arriving on the bus at about 12am ish; "all good". Rang the day before to confirm and no check in permitted after 7pm. We were going to have to sit outside the hostel from our arrival time until the hostel opened in the morning! Cancelled our...

We booked the tour through wicked travel in Byron Bay with Lena and got all the information that some other reviewers didn't get at the time (You have to pay 50$/Person bond for the cars, 10$ keybond for the hostelroom, 5$ to get a sleeping bag for Fraser island and I don't remember how much to lock your stuff while...

We stayed in this hostel as two nights were included with our 3d/2n Fraser Island tour. As we stayed for free I can't really make any complaints; we could use the kitchen, use the cinema (great when you come back knackered from the tour) and shower. The tour was amazing! It's such a privelidge to get to go to Fraser...

The amount of bad reviews this trip has is completely unwarranted - don't listen to them, everyone I did my trip with absolutely loved it so go and do it! The 4x4 driving is one of the funnest things I've done in Australia. The cars are absolute beasts and it was so much fun driving on the off road terrain...

I stayed in Palace the night before Fraser island and the night after. The hostel has great facilities, clean toilets and kitchen (although the kitchen is small) and clean rooms. The hostel is very social and right next to the beach! There are plenty of supermarkets and food places nearby although expensive. Would highly reccomend staying here!

Did the Palace tour from the hostel, which was one of the best things I did in Australia. The campsite was basic but was a good environment for everyone to make friends. Throughout the day, everyone with a valid driving license got the opportunity to drive the 4WD around the island. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and good fun. Fraser...
