Noosa wasn't much to look at in the dark, and we were glad the Koalas hostel bus was able to take us to the resort from the Greyhound as we were shattered by this point, and the hike up the hill might well have done for me!

Fortunately the hostel also had a mini-restaurant as we couldn't have been bothered cooking. We got something to eat and made our way to the room we'd booked from Surfers - a double.

We thought they were a really helpful hostel, giving us two keys when we arrived. When we were scrabbling around trying to get the key into the lock, we thought there'd been a mistake - we could already hear voices from inside our supposedly private room.
Turned out our room was beyond theirs: one key got you into a 6 bed dorm, the next into the double room, which only had a bed, a bag rack and a chest of drawers and TV in it! We had to share bathroom facilities with the dorm. Not exactly what we'd imagined, especially as the double was more expensive, but we'd had enough of dorms for a bit, and wanted our own space. We also felt happier being able to lock our bags away when we weren't there. The room wasn't great, but it was a bed and it was clean, so that did us for two nights.
