Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

The hostel is not too big, which gives a nice and cozy atmosphere. The location is perfect, 5 minutes away from the beach and the shopping center. You can take the tram from there anywhere you like. I liked that they organize diners, very cheep and a nice way to meet other people. Altogether a very nice hostel!

I spent in this backpackers hostel one night, and it was the worst night of my 2 weeks trip. Despite the hostel has a good location, the rooms are awful. I slept in a tiny and filthy room with 3 more people (there were cockroaches in the bathroom). My bunk bed hadn't a ladder, so the stuff provide us a...

Great social location for the young at heart. Great parties and group club outings. Appartment style is awesome to chat with flat mates on deck and lounge. Staff are amazing and friendly and helpful. Slept really well in the 4 bed mixed dorm, excellent blackout curtains and no noise overnight.

We stayed here for just one night. Staff were friendly but we had to wait until almost 3 until we could check in due to the room having not been prepared for us. We stayed in a private room which was a bit grubby. The common areas next to the room had a lot of potential but again were grubby...

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...
