We got upgrade to a room in an apartment which was great as the hostel kitchen was very small. Definite party hostel.


Only downside is you have to buy their alcohol. $3 cup of goon. Other than that, everything is sweet.

One of he best hostels I've stayed at in Australia. Friendly and helpful staff. Very close to the beach, bars and shops. Nice clean dorms with en suite which was a bonus. Great place to stay if you like to party and socialize - everyone drunk together and played drinking games before a night out at the bar (which was very cheap). Nice kitchen and the best part was it had an oven which most hostels do not! Would highly recommend and will be returning!

Absolutely loved my stay here, by far one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The people there and the staff definitely made it for me; all the staff are so lovely and really get involved with everything, helping you out with whatever you need. The nights out arranged by the hostel are really good and everyone has so much fun. Definitely a party hostel but obviously in a good way. Great kitchen, everyone washes their stuff, loved the TV room and dorms were generally clean.


Excellent stay!


We stayed in one of the private cabins and had fun. The construction sucks but that's not the hostel's fault. It was really cool having a big kitchen and living room, and the other room we shared with was really nice. It's close to everything and they organise awesome nights out so I'd definitely recommend it :)


This was one of the best hostels I have ever stayes at. Right on the beach. The staff were awesome and really made you feel at home/welcome. They upgraded us for free to an apartment which was an added bonus. I would recommend this hostel and definitely stay here again. Really good times


Super friendly staff, always happy to help. We were upgraded to a private apartment for no extra cost. Fun backpacker bar crawl and plenty of facilities.


The staffs are very kind and helpful, especially Harry. He is awesome,
