A hostel is quite simply put an appropriately priced communal accommodation intended for backpackers and youth on a tight budget, in which more than one person sleeps in a room, it can be anywhere from 2-10 people per room, this is what allows hostels to set their rates to be so much cheaper than that of hotels, and also allows the hostels to invest in other expenditures and assets that benefit guests as a whole, such as pools, spas and hot tugs, the hostel becomes a tourist attraction onto itself. It is not uncommon for people to stay at a hostel and relax, party, and go no further than the beach that its located on.

One of the best Noosa hostels is the Noosa Flashpackers, a relatively new hostel, ideally located in central Sunrise beach, this is where most the major hostels are located, this is youth central, also just a short walk from all the major attractions that make Noosa such a popular tourist destination, built to specifically to accommodate backpackers, it has the boutique feel of a commercial resort with the community orientated, friendly, egalitarian atmosphere of a hostel. Complete with a pool, palm trees, overlooking the courtyard to provide just enough shade, amenities that extend as far as free breakfast, a shared kitchen with 24 hour accessibility, air conditioning, internet access, a BBQ area, free laundry, it’s easy to forget that hostels are intended for those on a budget.

Another excellent hostel worth mentioning, also near the Noosa river is the Noosa Backpacker’s resort from Noosa, with rooms starting at $22 a night, it is competitively priced and located right next to the Noosa River, it is in the same general location as Flashpackers hostel, close to all amenities, night clubs, restaurants and like Flashpackers backs a whole slew of extras to keep guests entertained. It’s own fully stoked bar, DVD’s, BBQ area, cable TV, a pool table, a common room, a games room, as well as free airport transfer. Another highly reviewed hostel in the same general area as the above two hostels is Chillout Noosa, also in an excellent location right across from the Noosa River and just a couple minutes walk from all facilities, Restaurants, bars cafes, and only a short bus ride away from a ferry. This is an another excellent hostel to book for your trip to Noosa this year, although this hostel doesn’t have the same out of amenities as the other two hostels, it makes an excellent substitute in case the other hostels are overbooked, or if you’re looking for a quieter resort without so many distractions and want to focus on relaxing and sight-seeing.
