    To be honest, I have never seen a staff like this. No hello, not friendly at all. He told me to wait 15 min for my check in. I was waiting for around 30 minutes and during this time he was drinking with his friends....More

    Hostel has big rooms and everyone that works there is really helpful. We had a cancelled flight and booked in last minute and we're able to check in late. Close to surfers paradise beach and has a bar within the hostel.

    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.
