The staff went out of their way to assist us with any info about the gold coast and the rooms and facilities were very well kept.

What a great place to stay, great location and facilities. Cheap backpackers accommodation which was real value for money. Lots to do and see in Surfers Paradise and nightly activities at the backpackers too. Free Wifi, free breakfast and there was even a bar, which helped to get us warmed up before the night out!

Want to go back! and wish I could have stayed longer. The Staff were really accommodating, and there was always something going on. I went to a Surf lesson organised through the hostel, so much fun. And a night called the Backpackers Big Night Out this was insane. My room was small but comfortable and clean.

The toliets and shower facilities are disgusting, they smelt awful during our stay and do not look like they get cleaned regularly.

Clean, spacious room (4 bed) Not far from beach or drinking strip. No air con, just a fan and very humid. Staff would continue to chat at the benches and leave you stood at reception, even when they have seen you. Not allowed to use the washers before 1200pm.

Toilets were being redone on one floor so only 4 showers and 4 toilets available to use. Didn't cause a problem though, it was a lovely little hostel had a swimming pool didn't get a chance to go in though as only stayed for a few nights, 2 fans in room so it was enough for 4. Free breakfast which is a plus and they have nights out which is pretty cool.

Loved my stay here. Accommodation clean and with great facilities. The pool area is superb, big pool loungers and even hammocks. Bar was open all the time and had very good drink deals. Would recommend if passing through Surfers!

Not a very nice hostel, no aircon, tiny kitchen and no cutlery. Staff is quite friendly and the location isn't bad.

The location is really good and the pool area is nice. However, the rooms are extremely small and cramped and feel like they reach highs of 100 degrees. Probably the hottest room I've experienced whilst travelling with only a little fan attached to the wall. The kitchen was also tiny and very dirty making it hard to cook anything more than a microwave meal. You can't bring your own alcohol but there is a bar and the hostel staff do organise nights out.
