Koala Backpackers (Koala Beach Resort) in Noosa (now NOMADS Noosa) is not far from the beach and shops. Even though their rooms are quite big, they usually put as many bunk beds in the rooms as possible. Depending on the people you are staying with, that can be a little disturbing during the night (if they prefer partying in the room). There’s a bar and a pool as well in the hostel. The facilities were comparably clean when we stayed, but the rooms were not locked most of the time (safety concern). We also found the price a little high for an 8-share dormitory.
