Booked this hostel and the three day two night Fraser Island tour through Peter Pan travel company. The hostel itself is very loud. If you are not looking for a party hostel do not book this hostel. The music and parties go on past 12 midnight even though you must be up at 6 to leave for your Fraser Island...

This hostel was exactly as expected from reading previous reviews with two bars, two pools and a 5 minute walk from the beach, there was no shortage of things to do. There is a pancake breakfast every morning but unless you get up at 7am, you are likely to miss out on that. Very sociable hostel but a very high...

First of all, let me state that Fraser Island was just awesome - clearly one of our east coast highlights! However, we had pretty bad luck with Dingo Adventure, especially with our tourguide 'Jonesy' and the 'introduction guide'. The tourguide was completely weird, most of the time he seemed to be confused and could hardly speak one straight sentence. We...

Booked onto the 3 day/2 night tour with my younger sister and it was incredible. Fraser Island is beautiful, driving in the sand is such a fun experience, meeting some awesome people from all over the globe and generally just having a great time. We were really lucky with the people in our group and in our convoy as a...

Stayed here and did the 4x4 trip to Fraser Island. Had an amazing time on the tour couldn't recommend it more. The hostel was also great two nice big pools (it's joint with another hostel) and two bars, free breakfast too and cheap dinner. Rooms are clean and spacious and the showers are great

I had an amazing three days and two nights in Fraser Island with Dingos Tag a long tour. Our guide Brendo was hilarious and really informative, the food was great and non stop and the island itself was amazing. The hostel however, needs a bit of improvement. Cockroaches in the room and expensive drinks are downsides, as well as bad...

If you have any other options, don't stay here. I originally booked three nights accomodation on either side of a Fraser Island tour with another company. My plans changed and even though I asked for a refund for my third night (72 hours in advance), they told me they don't refund. I have never stayed anywhere with such poor customer...

This is basic accommodation as reflected in the price, room wasn't very comfortable due to humidity during the day and freezing cold at night with the air con blasting out. Would be nice if we could control the temperature of this, but can't see that happening, there's a general prison camp feel throughout the place. Overall its OK as a...

I spent two nights at DIngos prior to leaving for my 4x4 tag along tour in March. The hostel itself is fine, no frills... if you have a choice of which bunk to pick, make sure you look at the mattresses beneath the fitted sheets because some appear to be from hospitals in the 1950s, and some are newer. I...
