My stay at Dolphins Beach House was absolutely sublime. Surfboard hire, ping pong, pool, and hammocks to read away the day in. The staff were incredibly friendly, always willing to help but also cool enough to hangout with all the time. This is the perfect place if you want to kick your shoes off and just relax for a while....

Loved this place and my time spent here! I wish that I had more time to hang around. The hostel was super relaxed and chilled out. The staff were super cool! I spent majority of my time hanging with them. Made some great friends here too! The hostel isn't located in the city centre which was perfect because its 2...

Best hostel I've ever stayed in! Had so much fun here. Super chilled vibe, instantly felt at home. All the staff are so friendly and helpful and fun. Smells of lush incense. Has a lil pool. 5 min walk away from the beach and free shuttle to main beach. Wanted to live here forever! Hammocks and chill out spots galore....

Had a great time relaxing and detoxing at this hostel. There's a real hippie Asia vibe about it with Buddhas, Hammocks and chillout areas everywhere which is great. It does have everywhere that you can't drink after 7pm but the staff and others didn't take much notice of this so you can hear them when in bed, didn't really bother...

This hostel is really far away from the action. The shuttle bus is good but it doesn't run nearly as frequently as it should. The hostel has a nice "hippie" vibe but considering it's meant to be a quiet hostel, you can hear everything everywhere. The doors to the bedrooms have slats in the them that let in light and...

I stayed in a premium deluxe ensuite room with air-con (upstairs), it was ok but the bed was way too short for me (not a real Queen-size bed) and the couch looked stained and dirty. Room wasn't vacuumed properly when I arrived. I cleaned mould from around the bathroom tap and tiles eventually as it annoyed me!! There was a...

If I were to describe my stay at this hostel in one word that word would be 'terrible'. Me and my partner were shoved into a cramped 5 bed dorm, where we were subject to 34 degree heat at night, cockroaches in and around our bed, not to mention on the cutlery Aswell. You would expect the noise level to...

When we first arrived we loved this hostel it reminded us of places we had visited in Byron! The hostel offers a free bus throughout the day to noosa junction bus stop and the main beach which is a nice gesture as this hostel is not near anything apart from the national park! There are signs everywhere saying "no noise/drink...

My friend and I stayed for four nights. It is nice that there's a free shuttle bus, but the driver(s) aren't keen for a talk, which is a pity. The hostel is covered in signs that say 'no goon', 'no drinking after 7pm', 'checkout before 9.30am' and 'strictly no use of facilities after 10am', '$5 fee when you want to...

I stay there for 2 nights and it is nightmare. The policy says guests need to keep the noise down to the reasonable level, but the first night people were sitting outside and talk loudly, the second night there were people playing butbilliards at mid-night. Do not recommend this hostel and personally won't stay there again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Chill out and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Dolphins Beach House at beautiful Sunshine Beach, Noosa.This secluded, hippy-style haven is the closest hostel to the beach in Noosa, situated next to Noosa National Park with a boutique shopping village just one minute away.The ambience of this family-run hostel is quirky and unique - definitely not part of a franchise backpackers business. The owners are experienced travelers themselves, and Dolphins Beach House reflects their love of travel, with many exotic artifacts from India to Burma and Thailand. Once you slip past the gardens, the trees, the funky pink walls and the Guatemalan architecture, you'll realize that you have found a restful retreat.It's no wonder that Dolphins Beach House is Lonely Planet's best pick for Noosa for 2010 / 2011. Relax, unwind, enjoy.Our friendly staff are always happy to recommend where to go and what to see next. Office hours are 8:00 am to 7:00 pm ... more   less
