    Lovely friendly reception

    Too noisy!!! The worst hostel of the East Coast!

    Having stayed there over 20 years ago, Halse Lodge is still a magical place. It is great for backpackers and for people looking for an escape but without going broke. The social activities are fun and make it a fun place to be.

    Rooms are quite small, no lockers. Dining while watching Rainbow Lorekeets is awesome! Go for guided walk, that was really nice :)

    Amazing location, great bar and restaurant. Would stay there again

    Overall, a fair place to crash for a couple nights, and those who are looking for a party and like to dine out will truly appreciate Halse Lodge. Self-catering folks looking for a quiet spot should look elsewhere; the on-site bar will keep you awake at night while the tiny kitchen may have you waiting in line to make a meal.

    Kitchen was so small and unusable. Noosa is such a beaitiful place though. Wifi only works in a small area and is really expensive.
    Olivia L March 2015
    Kitchen facilities were awful, too small for all the people staying and the hobs rarely worked. Wifi was expensive and didn't have the option of global gossip. Wouldn't recommend.

    Beautiful old building with a veranda and great bar / restaurant area & garden. Excellent location moments from the beach, national park and Hastings Street. Downsides: noisy ceiling fans, vents to the outside allow noise and insects in. Some of the rooms have doors to the veranda which are lovely but people leave them open potentially allowing anyone off the street into the rooms - bring a lock!

    Customer Reviews on

    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 make a booking on, you will be invited by email 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:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    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.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    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.

    Comments including staff names

    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.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    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.
