I got a incredible time there. The hostel is really good and the city is peaceful and wonderful.
I am lucky to met too many good people there who made my unforgettably memories.
Thank you very much guys!

I had an amazing time in Flashpackers Hervey Bay with Mel, Trich, Katie and the volunteers who worked there. We used to do different activities such as going out, to the beach or kangaroo spotting! They'll do everything they can to make you feel like home and they'll help you with everything.
The hostel is also great, the kitchen is big and clean and the living room is comfy.
Hervey Bay is a beautiful place and it's even better if you can enjoy it with the nice people from the hostel. I'd recommend going to Flashpackers Hervey Bay to everyone, it'll be an unforgettable experience!

Raquel was an amazing worker who would help anywhere she could. She bought joy, smiles,laughs and cheer to the hostel and made alot of friends along the way. We will miss her dearly.


What can I say, I had the perfect month at flashpackers Hervey bay. The hostel is so clean, beautiful, with all the things that you need to feel like you are at home. I worked with amazing people, Mel, the manager, is incredible. She made me part of the family since day one and we had a blast together and with the others backpackers that worked with me. Hervey bay is a small town but you'll find things to do everyday. I'll definitely coming back. Thank you Mel, Trich, Emily, Katie, Alycia, Violette, Max, Leo, Bastian, Jordan, Michael, Britt for an amazing time.
