facilities are not well maintained. there are in room cockroaches. room is tiny with smell. but it is acceptable with this price if you just need a place to sleep. nice and helpful staff.


The main issue with this hostel is the standard of the bunk beds. It is the only place I have stayed in 6 months of travelling that has bunks with no steps to the top bunk. It was difficult and dangerous to jump up there. The mattresses are thin foam and the whole bunk is very flimsy - if you try to climb up on the plastic you fall off. Added to that the young staff organising nights out are more concerned with having as breast night themselves than their guests.


Its a nice place to stay near most hostels and surfers paradise. It is cleaned every day but some people in my room stayed long and stuff were every where. They had some stuff going on every night that was nice to participate in.


Stayed in a double bed private room. The room was spotless with a dresser (which is always appreciated) a large wardrobe and a nice bathroom with endless hot water. Sheets on the bed were ripped and the pillows were terrible (not worth a bad rating but worth mentioning, it's a hostel so fair enough) A couple guys smoking pot outside, but hey it's the Gold Coast, I guess that can either be a good or bad thing depending on who you are and it had nothing to do with the hostel or the staff. 4/5.


Poor standard of rooms and communal area, terrible upkeep of rooms, very basic, poor wifi connection even in the common room, smelt of stale smoke, a LOT of people crashing around at 3am taking the p***. Wouldn't recommend


Everything was good here. I really enjoy my stay. Keep it up Sleeping Inn. It just that keep your instagram account updated more often. 👍


Stayed at the hostel for 4 nights, and I was very pleased with my stay! The people working there are awesome, and it's so easy to get to know people since you have your own "apartment" together with other people. The rooms were a bit small, but alright! It was good that each "apartment" had their own kitchen and bathroom, even though they were quite dirty! It was a 10 minute walk to the beach, but I didn't mind :) Overall it'sa nice hostel with awesome people :)
