It's a big hostel but it wasn't very busy when I've been there so I was upgraded to a 4bed dorm and I had that one by my self for the first night. The kitchen is clean but the fridge was very dirty. The stuff was alright.. I enjoyed the pool, that was very nice. All in all a nice hostel close to the greyhound station, the beach and the city.
Really good location. Difficult facilities which made you enjoy staying there.
Different to a typical hostel as dorms are old hotel rooms. They are ok and have what you need. The whole place is in need of being updated. You get free use of hotel facilities (pool and spa) which is great.
No atmosphere, poor staff who really didn't care. Been staying in nomads all over Australia and this one let the company down unfortunately

Great hotel/hostel resort! Definetley be back :) On the flipside... cleaners could of done a better job daily in the backpackers rooms!?! :(
I am a girl and traveling by myself I did not felt safe. There was an homeless old lady in my room, but the personnel was very nice and changed my room.
More a hotel than a hostel with excellent facilities and kind staff. Located less than 5mins from the beach and bars/clubs. Great value for money especially as we were upgraded from an 8 bed dorm to 5 with a fridge and TV.
Literally 2 minutes walk on to surfers beach, swimming pool, hot tub, quality kitchen, we had a balcony and private bathroom in a four bed dorm. Definitely the best place to stay in Surfers for price location and facilities. Definitely go!
