The best hostel I've stayed in in Australia so far. The staff are all lovely, such a chilled vibe. It's right opposite the bus stop, there's free breakfast, free wifi, a nice pool, a tv lounge with loads of films and a laundry service. Even though there's isn't that much to do in rainbow beach itself, this hostel is close...

Pippies has a pleasant social area and kitchen is reasonably well equipped. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Rooms have AC and were clean and reasonably priced which is a plus, however, the mattresses are covered in a plastic covering which are super uncomfortable and noisy when one moves or turns over. It reminded me of the covers you might...

The hostel isn't amazing but it's good for a solo night stay before and after the Fraser Island tour. The mattresses are annoyingly squeaky so I felt bad when I turned in at 1am trying to be quiet. The facilities however are good and the wifi is decent. Moving on to the tour- it was amazing. Heard a lot of...

Good facilities, free breakfast, friendly staff, air conditioned room which was great (although I don't think this is the case with all the rooms). Only fault would be that showers always seemed to be occupied, as there didn't seem to be enough. Some rooms (including ours), backed right into the kitchen/chill out area, which wasn't conducive to sleeping when other...

We stayed here as part of the Pippies Tag-along tour that went to Fraser Island. We were impressed with the tour, and only stayed at this 'guesthouse' as part of the package. I wouldn't stay here out of choice. The hostel boasts 'most rooms have a/c' but we didn't speak to anyone who had this facility. Our 8 bed dorm...

We stayed at this hostel for a few nights, the first night before our Fraser tour being incredibly hot due to the A/C not working, hence we got no sleep at all. This was the case in most of the rooms according to the people we spoke to and in fact the hostel did bring in engineers to fix the...

We stayed for one night only on a quick visit to see the coloured sands. We were in a two bedroom apartment in the small apartment block away from the main Pippies Beachhouse. The location near to the beach is very good. the apartment was very clean and tidy, but rather dated and perhaps a little tired. The bed was...
