Absolutely loved it, if I come back to noosa I'll definitely be staying here again!

Make sure you do the coastal walk all the way to Hell’s Gates. Hit all the stops in between

The cutest hostel although it didn't feel like a hostel! The restaurant was fabulous where they offered special food and drink deals for guests every night ($10 for a beer and pizza - so good) and some of the cheapest food in town. I loved how they offered an orientation with a glass of wine and the opportunity to meet other guests and get acquainted with the town. The free parking was great too as we had a car with us. Great location - close to Hasting street and the beach.

Good location, rooms too hot, more attention to room cleaning as very dusty , kitchen small for so many people,

Loved it, super social, met lots of awesome people! Excellent location. Bathrooms were clean. Rooms were clean. Only complaint is noisiness due to balcony (which is awesome but not when people are sleeping).

Awesome place in prime location. We booked during a peak time as no where else was available. We normally never stay in hostels but I was really surprised. The only thing to mention was pretty bad mattress, so it was hard to sleep on. Great clean place ,friendly with nice people around. Bar and restaurant also good. Would stay again.

Location was the best, five minute walk to the main beach, restaurants, bars, and the national park. Hostel bar/restaurant has delicious chocolate brownie that you must order. Free surf board rentals for everyone staying and free shuttle bus to greyhound/transit station. I stayed in a 4 bed door on the second floor, would highly recommend this room category and location as they were quieter (away from the kitchen) and airflow was better here with the ceiling fans. If you are looking for a party hostel I wouldn't recommend staying here but at nomads, however if you wanted a quite stop to come back to at night it's perfect because KB's bar is a less than 10 minute walk away.

Apart from one receptionist most were unfriendly, reception itself runs on a really tight schedule and closes early, just like most of the hostel (shuttle bus, surf board hire) No real common area to meet others. Barely any charging options (8 sockets for 16 in dorm). You can charge stuff at the reception, which is inconvenient though. Kitchen doesnt have enough equipment in busy hours (6pm - 9pm), which makes you queue for cooking. The rainforest room itself is a really good dorm for a 16 bed dorm and its great to sleep there but apart from that i didn't enjoy my stay.

Hostel Rating See Customer Rating Guidelines


YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That’s why when you give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:


Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.


Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.


Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.


If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
