Pipppies Beach Hostel Rainbow Beach Reviews
Oct 20, 2007
If you stay in Rainbow beach, do not stay at Pippies! Even if you get a couple of free nights there through your travel booking, as soon as you are able, move to one of the other hostels. The management here is unscrupulous and they are not the cheapest of the 3 side-by-side hostels ($26 for them, Dingos $21 and Frasers on Rainbow $21) anyway.
While we were here the hostel owner's son's friends broke into our car parked outside on the road and stole one of our backpacks and half of our friend's clothes and art stuff. They dumped some of the stuff in bushes down the beach when they found it none of it was valuable but none of the rest was ever recovered despite having no value to 15 yr old boys.
Despite the hostel owner knowing her son was involved, she merely said 'yes, they're little buggers aren't they?' and did not see fit to discipline her son or put pressure on him to help us or the police. She then tried to stiff my friend over money she owed her for work she had been doing around the hostel. Like mother, like son?
