I don't know why Surfers paradise gets a bad rap from some backpackers but I loved the place and this hostel deserves most of the credit. The staff really try to involve hostel stayers in nightly activities including a great Wednesday night pub crawl which is perfect when you want to meet people. The small pool is exactly what you...

I used the greyhound bus to get to surfers paradise & the hostel were there picking people up and taking them to the hostel which was a good touch. We traveled as a couple and we didn't go to Surfers Paradise for the party scene, however as soon as we arrived we realized this wasn't the place for us. We...

Very nice and friendly staff to begin with! You guys need some new pans to cook and real aircon for in the rooms. A fan makes you give a cold but you have to put it on because it's so warm in the small rooms. Nice refreshing pool and nice to have a living room for 2 rooms

Friendly staff, rooms are ok for a short stay, WiFi signal gets very weak in the room, need some new fans though. Location is good not too far from central of Surfers & beach. Nice to have a pool & gaming room.

Me, my husband, my mom and her friend had booked an apartment with two bedrooms. The apartment seemed to be dirty, the pots and pans were very old, as the furniture. The TV was not working... I don't recomend this place.The rooms were dirty, sheets seemed not to be changed for a while.

We stayed for two nights in a private double room with shared bathroom. The staff were really friendly and picked us up from the Greyhound Bus Stop.

It is in a good location to the beach and main shopping area. Really nice having your own kitchen area and a freezer. All kept very clean and tidy by staff daily. It's a small but very social hostel, perfect for those travelling alone or in a small group. I would highly recommend doing the bar crawl if staying on...
