Really nice stay. Good people, quiet which is good if you want it quiet. Staff were helpful. Room had a fridge and mini kitchen so was good! Would stay again.


That's the best backpacker. Staff was very nice, she will give a lot of travel advice and the facilities, room and bathroom is very clean.

Swearing at the staff is not cool. Our staff member helped you with your question even after you swore at her so you know that if you had a problem with your blanket or anything else you only needed to come and speak to us.


The place needs a bit of freshing up, but everything was very clean and the lady at the desk was super friendy and helpfull!


It is a low priced hostel in Surfers Paradise and 10 minutes walk to Surfers Paradise beach and all tram stations. Nearest bus stop is Ferny Ave. stop which is just 5 minutes walk. I will give excellent ranking to this hoste.l I liked the friendly environment at this place. It is value for money because at low cost you get all facilities.

Thank you very much for your comments. We hope you enjoy your time studying here!


This hostel seemed to be more for people who were staying in town long term. There were no safes in the room, but you could lock up your valuables at reception if you needed. There was a lack of outlets in the room, so I would recommend buying a cheap power bar of you have many things to charge.


Loved this place;relaxed


the staff are nice and the reception time should be 20:00, even though my flight was delayed, the staff still help me for the check-in. The location is good and close to the beach.


It's a nice hostel with a very kind staff. It's in a very good location, quiet but not far from the heart of fun.


Thoroughly enjoyed my stay even if it was only for the one night. Right from the get go I was made to feel very welcomed by all the staff, beds were comfy and location was super! Can't really ask for much more when staying at a backpackers, especially one as cheap as this... Would definitely come back and recommend to my friends for future reference :) Thanks again


A nice enough hostel, definitely better for those wanting a rest from Gold Coast antics!


I really enjoyed my stay here it's quite quiet but that's great as you can talk and have drinks with friends. The staff are amazing and so helpful.


Amazing Hostel! We really had an amazing stay as we were looking for a bit more quiet hostel, it's not that type of party hostel like in the other hostels in the street but if you want to party you just have to make a 5 min walk and there you are in the centre of surfers! Very nice staff, good kitchen that is more than big enough for the small hostel. Nice bathroom and beautiful double rooms, I can't understand the bad reviews, if it once was like said i n those it now isthe complete difference!
