Nice appartment like rooms with own bathroom and kitchen. Great atmosphere, pretty close to the city center and free wifi in de lounge! Only con is that the rooms don't have airco.

Hi, Thank you very much for your review :) We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. It can get a little hot during the Australian summer. We are only a small family run Backpacker Hostel and do believe it is sufficient to provide fans in all rooms and installing aircon in 20 different apartments would fall outside our budget. We appreciate your feedback and could only hope you may like to visit again at a cooler time of the year. We wish you all the best! The Sleeping Inn


No Common Room, only Common Area Outside (at least under Kind of a Roof), really nervracking that you have to give a deposit for everything, each fork, knife,... Has it's own deposit. A bit rediciluous . But nevertheless a nice hostel . Would stay there again.

Hi, I am a little confused about your review..you may have mixed something up :) Your room is an apartment with a spacious sitting area. You also have a massive undercover terrace with picnic tables to hang out. We have a huge common room downstairs. You only pay $20 key dep at the start which is connected to the kitchen pack and never once have we charged anything for a lost fork! Really not such a strict thing :) I do appreciate the time you took to write the review. Take care!


We really enjoyed staying there. The dorms are nice and clean! Pickup at the bus is arranged, which is nice.

Really good location. Wifi is ok. Basic breakfast. Good dorms but beds a little noisy. Recommend this hostel

Thank you so much for leaving your positive review. Such a shame you couldn't stay a little longer. It was our pleasure having you here. We are glad you liked the short walk to town/ beach. We are aware that the free WiFi can be a little slow at times and hope to have it improved for everyone by the beginning of the new year. We are sorry about the inconvenience it has caused. We wish you all the best for the rest of your travels. Take care! The Sleeping Inn Team


Very tinny room and only one shower for 12 girls....

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry to hear that you were a little disappointed and we couldn't meet your expectations. Our female only Apartment has 2 bathrooms, one with the shower inside. There are 3 beauty stations with big mirrors, straighteners, hair dryers. It would have been great if you could have come down to reception to speak to me in person. I could have shown you the other set of communal showers. Kind regards Sleeping Inn Team


The staff here were really nice but it's not the best hostel for meeting people. The bathrooms aren't very clean and the kitchens are missing alot of stuff. Even the people working in the hostel agreed it wasn't very clean, and they were the people cleaning it...


Apartment style hostel which is nice, room needs some maintenance I.e. No insect net on window, broken fan etc. but apartment was clean, free breakfast was good and close to town. Unfortunately we visited during schoolies!


Easy to meet people since they organize something every night,the hostel is basically splitted into units, the female dorms have their own unit with a private big balcony, living room, kitchenkitchen, bathroom and toilets, which was awesome because it looks like a doll househouse with lots of mirrors! There are supermarkets and bars/clubs about 10 min walking, the beach is about 25 min walk. Most nights were quiet, and the WiFi very slow! Would stay again though..


Hostel is good, stayed in a great room where you have your own little apartment attached to the room with a couch and kitchen for the room to share. The location is great and only 5 minutes to walk into the supermarket/ main strip. The pool is not nice though and its not the liveliest hostel unless you stay in a bigger dorm.
