    Good Hostel. With a pool, billiard and ping pong table. Loundry 4$. My room had a private bathroom(with shower) and was very clean. They clean it everyday. Nice hostel to meet other travellers and there is always a plan for the evening.

    Perfectly situated in the heart of surfers paradise this hostel is in easy access to the beach and all major clubs. The staff provide excellent service including nightly bar crawls and great food service. Plenty of screens for sport and pool tables

    There are some cabinets available, but I think you need your own lock. I didn't bother about it, just left my stuff on/around my bed and nobody bothered it.

    Hi My daughter and her friend are in Aus at the moment and I am looking to book a hostel for them. Only problem is they fly into Brisbane Airport. Can anyone advise best way to get from there to this Hostel please. Also is the transport quite good once there as they have no car and want to go to Seaworld etc. Many thanks.
