This hostel does not live up to its name "flashpackers" at all! To advertise that this hostel is better than the basic hostels is totally wrong. As there is: No air con in the rooms (they have a floor fan than makes hardly any difference to the temperature and is so loud), no lockers, they close reception constantly throughout the...

I stayed in an ensuite double room with fan (no air con) for $80 a night which was worth it but only just. As hostels go it is not bad but is suffering I think from the flight of backpackers to Rainbow Beach as the Fraser Island hub. Therefore it needs to reinvent itself to keep people more than one...

The Flashpackers Hostel in Hervey Bay is definitely number one of all the hostels I've visited during my backpacker life in Australia! The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need for cooking meals and is pretty clean aswell. They've got a nice pool area, a cinema room and a big common room. And they've got special events like free...

Flashpackers Hervey Bay is definitely the best hostel I've stayed at during my so far 6 months in Australia. I've been there twice and will definitely choose it again when traveling through Hervey Bay. Both the dorms and the private rooms are really clean and comfortable and they have amazing ceiling showers. The common area is really nice and clean,...

Fantastic friendly staff with excellent facilities and a very nice pool. Our only downfall with this place was no aircon in the heat of summer, there are fans but only if your lucky like us do you get a big giant fan :) Great free breakfast in the morning, the walk in fridge is also fantastic (also great for if...
