Experience personal service and develop friendships with fellow guests in a quiet, intimate setting. Unlike other hostels in the area, we do not close our facilities early so you don\'t have to retire to your room early to watch TV, you can relax knowing that you can cook (in a real kitchen with everything that you need) watch TV or a DVD, make a \'cuppa\' (FREE tea and coffee) chat to others over a drink or simply just enjoy being somewhere that feels just like home whenever you want.
Larger groups travelling together can enjoy the luxury, space and comfort of their own fully equipped apartment at dorm prices!

Coming by car:
Follow the signs into Hervey Bay from the Bruce Highway. As you travel along Boat Harbour Drive into the main part of Hervey Bay, you will see Pizza Hut and McDonald's on your right. Go straight through the roundabout just past these and straight through the next set of traffic lights. As you go up the next hill you will see Queen's Road signposted on your left - turn left. Go down the hill to the first stop sign (you will have the police station to your right and Golden Chicken to your left) Turn Right - this is Torquay Road, but there is no street sign at this intersection. The Friendly is about 500 metres up on your left.
