The first thing you need to bear in mind when searching for the right hostel on the Sunshine Coast is its location. If you plan on spending most of your time at the beach, then it makes sense to find a hostel which is close to the foreshore. If you are interested in exploring the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, then a hostel nestled amongst the beautiful forested areas would be more suited to your taste.
Locations closer to the beach also have a range of shopping centres, restaurants and bars within walking distance. So if going out on the town at night is high on your to-do list, then staying along the foreshore is a must. Check out the accommodation options in stylish Noosa, the family friendly Coolum, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba and Caloundra, or the cool and creative hinterland villages of Maleny, Montville and Mapleton.
