What Our Guests Have Said

I have stayed multiple times at the Woolshed and think it's one of the best hostels I have stayed in.The lovely couple who run it are always helpful and accommodating and full of suggestions for things to do in the area and tours to book on to. The hostel itself has a bohemian feel, with bright spacious rooms and clean facilities. The garden in the middle is a little oasis of tropical plants and a pond with green tree frogs chirping at night. The garden comes with a bbq area and hammocks! There is a good kitchen with clean utensils for preparing meals too. They even have free bike rental!! If you're coming to Hervey Bay I highly recommend staying at Woolshed Eco Lodge

The staff seemed super friendly and an activity board offered things to do each day. They even offered free sausages on the bbq one night. Bicycles are also free of charge.
Met some cool people here which helped but all in all a quality stay and would strongly recommend.

From travelling the east coast, this hostel has definitely been the nicest place to stay. Everything is very chilled out, yet everything is spotless. The two showers are large and clean plus the kitchen is super tidy - the family atmosphere and warm welcome is fantastic. So much nicer than staying in a ‘traditional backpackers

Comfortable room and quality facilities, friendly staff and a good atmosphere in general. Good kitchen and lounge, TV in the double rooms with ensuite bathroom. Clean and tidy. The proprietors are nice and it’s worth a visit. If you don’t have a proper 4WD then consider taking their tours.

Great ambience and comfortable rooms. Parking space inside. Close to beach and nearby Great hostel! Lovely chilled place with nice clean facilities. Friendly and helpful staff - we booked our tour to Fraser Island with them and they were great. They’ll pick you up from the bus station for free so you don’t have to lug your bags, and there’s free bike hire too. Perfect distance for the beach (5 minute walk!) and some nice restaurants and bars with live entertainment. A great place with lovely character, would definitely recommend!food places

Really loved my stay here. The hostel had a lovely kitchen area and lots of greeness, hammocks and plants in the courtyard. Plus the owner is a genuine and lovely man! Perfect for a relaxed few days.

One of the most beautiful hostels i have ever been. A cosy hostel with a great location and excellent customer service. Friendly staff, free barbeque on friday night and very clean rooms, bathrooms and kitchen. Loved their garden and the whole environment

If you are looking for calm and serenity, you can stop at Woolshed Eco Lodge! Beautiful and clean place with a very good welcome The hostel is a good place near the beach and you can hire a bike to discover easily Hervey Bay.
