The lady that runs this place is probably one of the nicest hostel owners you will meet. She was lovely! Wifi was pretty shocking and unusable if I'm honest. But the rooms were clean and nice enough. We were in a triple room with our own bathroom and the shower was good. Kitchen facilities were nice and clean, as was the fridge. Has its own pool and TV room. The location is pretty much spot on. Can't go wrong. Nice quiet hostel, so if you're looking for sleep then I'd recommend this place.


This is a small hostel, almost like a converted house so quite different to what I had previously been used to. The staff were really lovely and friendly, giving us advice about where to go etc. I thought the hostel was fairly comfortable but it was a little bit run down which made me not feel as keen to stay there for too long. There were no lockers to store valuables in the rooms but the owner did lock them away for you in the reception if you wanted.


Good stay- staff very helpful! It is a good quiet place to stay in Surfers Paradise!


everything is bad...


Location is a little far to walk to if its at night. Everybody was quiet and respectful. I felt though the toilet seemingly looked a little old on first glance, it was actually good and kept clean!


It is a nice , small hostel and it is quite . It is a bit a walk to the but it is okay. The staff is very friendly and helpful.


Lovely hostel. In a good location with an easy walk to the centre, free WiFi was good and the lady that ran it was very helpful and welcoming. Was very quiet but its past peak season now. Would definitely stay here again.


We were three people staying in a 3-bed dorm ensuite for a couple of nights. The manager Belinda, and the rest of the staff, is so friendly and helpful in giving advice on everything from restaurants to accommodation and jobs. The kitchen and outside areas are really cozy and give good opportunity to hang with fellow travelers. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Thank you. I hope you're all enjoying your new place and have found good jobs!


Really good location. 5 minutes walk to the shops in Surfers Paradise and the beach. Staff is nice and the atmosphere is ok, but not a lot of party.


Very friendly, free Wifi, small, quiet


Very clean, very well located and quiet! That's the place for a relaxing holiday!

Great atmosphere, nice staff and really cosy hostel. Lives my stay here!


Small hostel, quiet place so that's good if you dont want to be in a party hostel like so many are in surfer paradise. Mqybe a little bit old but stillba good place to stay


Really good hostel, clean and friendly staff.


I liked that is was nice and quiet and the staff was really friendly and helpful. The only thing that kind of bothered me was that the wifi was really slow and I could only use it on one device. There are lockers in the room, but you will have to pay one dollar a day. The lockers in the staffroom are free, but you won't be able to excess those after the staffroom is closed.


The hostel is very quiet and good if you want to rest for a night. The reception is exceptionally friendly. The wifi wasn't very good. Own kitchen and bathroom in every room. Didn't meet a lot of people so probably not the best place for traveling alone. Close to town


will come back one day

Very nice hostel! The free shuttle is very good if you come by bus. There are always a lot of free activities and the staff is great! I stayed in a 6 beds dorm but we were just 3, so heaps of space!


Location is great only a 10 minute walk to the edge of town. Hostel is quite small but nice. Rooms are clean and bonus to have wifi throughout and own fridge in room! The lady who runs it is really lovely and happy to help with anything!


The staff is really nice! She booked activities for us. You can use a free computer. There is free wifi (in the room too!) Lockers are $. The kitchen is big enough. There is a swimming pool. 15 min walk to the beach, less than 10 to the bus station. The hostel is really calm. If you want to sleep instead of party it is perfect.
