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.

Rooms are great, with own bathroom which is pretty nice. The common area is great as well, loads of space for chilling. The bar is good, many different types of beers, both domestic and imported. There s is also a great little café in the corner, where you can buy cheap breakfast and good coffee. The only downside is probably...

Good location, 10-15 minute walk to the beach and shops. We got upgraded from a 20 to a 10 bed dorm, which was nice. The hostel offers activities every night. Kitchen wasn't very clean and you have to pay $2 per 24 hrs to use the wifi.

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.

Stayed here for only one night but is such a cool chilled out hostel that is really cheap. Stayed in a 20 bed dorm I thought might be a little cramped but was huge and spacious. The bar areas really nice too with very cheap drinks and free pool and good friendly atmosphere.

With a big open common area and a nice pool this place befits it's title. The rooms are very basic but that's to be expected for the low price. The location is great with only 5 minutes to the central beach of Surfers Paradise. All in all it's a pretty cool place to stay and good for meeting people.
