Aussie Woolshed Backpackers Hervey Bay Fraser Island Reviews

The Aussie Woolshed is located about a ten minute walk from the main Hervey Bay Esplanade and the beach. It is a 20-30 minute walk from the Greyhound bus station but they offer transfers between certain hours. Also, the transfer van for the hostel across the road from us will give you a life to and from there.

There is a clear theme running throughout the hostel - Woolsheds! It has a very Wild West, farm, rustic feel. The common room/kitchen is ultra cool. The kitchen is located behind a bar-style partition. There is a huge relax outdoors area with hammocks, a BBQ and a garden. The bathrooms are very clean. Free parking too. You also get free WIFI if you book a tour with the hostel - we did and it was great fun! Otherwise, the WIFI costs $3 for three hours. You pay $5 for air-con for the day. I think it's bad form to charge for air-con but that is the way it is!

The room we were in had a tv and DVD player and single beds as opposed to bunks.

The only thing that really bothered me about this hostel is the inconvenient hours the reception is open. When we arrived it was 2pm and had to wait until 4pm when the reception opened. The receptionist was 15 minutes late too. Other days she'd decide to close at 7pm or 8pm or whenever suited her really. I can understand she has a life and responsibilities but when you run a hostel you have to establish set hours of opening and closing and stick to them. In my opinion!
