Came to backpackers in paradise for a 4 day holiday - ended up staying 2 weeks! The best group of people I've met so far - especially Laurie! The rooms were clean with their own spacious bathrooms. The communal areas are sociable and the pool is amazing. Will definitely be coming back to my home from home as soon as...

Perfect location at the heart of Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise. You will enjoy the environment, chatting with people around the world sat down at a good terrace with a huge swimming pool. The Staff is very kind and good cleaners, they always try to help everyone who needs for it.

Good customer service. Cleaniness of the room was disgusting! Floors weren't clean and mopped. It was dirty. Both single bed sheets & pillowcases were also dirty. Must have been from previous stayers. Bathroom was ok! Could hear loud as conversations through the walls from the room next door to us which annoyed me throughout our weekend stay! I had to...

Great location for all central activities inc shops and clubs etc. Kitchen is pretty tiny, but other than that is a very affordable option. A full out party hostel so expect nothing less. Nice to also have a pool.
