Cancelled our booking just 12 days out from the event for "renovations". Have no idea why they would still take bookings if this was the case. Staff weren't very apologetic about it either. Character limit.

Thank Patrick S
Management response:

Unfortunately we had not planned on being shut at the time you booked, hence why we where still takings bookings. Many apologies again for any and all inconveniences, I hope you find something affordable and close by. My recommendations would be a hostel in Noosa. Kinds regards Caloundra Backpackers

I stayed here for 3 nights just as a small stop over and to go to Australia Zoo. Everything was fairly clean but their was a weird vibe around the place. i stayed in a private room with a friend but still felt a bit unsafe and wanted to keep my stuff in the car over night. It's pretty average.

Stayed here in December and loved every minute of it. The hostel is very basic, but has decent beds, showers and kitchens on each floor. In addition the staff are very friendly, and offer plenty of extras for anyone wanting to hit the beach. Is a bit of a walk from the main beach area, but at least means it's...

Great price for double room, quitr good beds, reasonable kitchen and common area, nice terrace. Very nice bathrooms. Really quiet during our visit, probably might changed during peak weekends. Close to the beach and shopping centre just across the road.

Nice, clean well located hostel in a lovely small town on Sunshine Coast. Enjoyed my trip here, people were friendly and would love to visit back again in the future. Whole atmosphere here is very chilled, nice if your looking at a few days relaxing.

We booked this a couple of weeks before and even though I made a couple of changes it was no problem to the manager James who was friendly and professional. At my age I was a bit nervous about a backpackers having never stayed in one before but we only wanted one night which was pretty difficult over Easter. I...

“Take a look before booking if possible, some rooms at the rear won't be affected by the other guests sitting outside the front late at night. If you can afford the room with ensuites, go for it.”
