We stayed in a twin private and it was amazing! We basically had an apartment to ourselves... It was huge! Massive kitchen, sofa, cable TV, big bathroom and comfy beds! It's a little bit out of the centre of surfers but really close to the beach! The only thing I would say is the shuttle service from the bus stop is a little unreliable! But definitely stay here it's brilliant!!!
Great hostel, super close to the beach, short walk to town (or get the free hostel shuttle). Pool, tennis court and large TV room. Bar with cheap drinks and lots of benches to chill at. Bar crawls and quiz nights to join in on. Rooms were clean and quite spacious. Other people were friendly, it was a very comfortable hostel. Would recommend.
Didn't stay long enough to comment much but nice staff, good facilities and v close to a beach!
Staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. They made us feel very comfortable and were very helpful when we were having problems booking trips etc. Highly recommended.
Stayed here for 5 nights. No complaints. Would definately stay here again.
Great place. Loved the pool. The courtesy bus is handy, but the hostel is only a 15 min walk from town anyhow, and only 5 min from the beach. Loads of stuff to do... Tennis/volleyball/bbq/clubs to go to at night. The place was really clean too. I wish there were lockers in the rooms though.
Only negatives are that there are no lockers in the rooms and the beds could be a bit more substantial rather then a foam mattress.
Overall a good stay here. Friendly staff, great regular shuttle into the main town, short walk to the bus and really nice pool!
wifi only at reception and from 7am-10pm
The location of the hostel is very nice. Opposite to the tram station and 100 meters from the beach. The atmosphere is very good and the staff is very friendly.
Stayed for 2 nights and had an awesome time, Great location, clean and friendly and helpful staff. I lost my phone and it got handed in, brilliant.

Had a great stay at the hostal staff were great and facilities were also great, arranged great bar crawls each week, would highly recommend this to everyone
Would highly recommend! Had a really amazing time at this hostel! I was only planning on staying here for a few days but I ended up extending even longer because I was so happy! The facilities at the hostel are great with the free wi-fi and free washing! The rooms were always cleaned too. The staff at the hostel are the most friendliest and helpful and fun staff that I have met since I've been in Australia and I've been here for 5months! They have a great bar and organise the best nights out!
Stayed in countless hostels all over Aus, and this is by far one of the best. The facilities and room were great. The social aspect was fantastic, so easy to meet and chat to people. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.
Moved to this hostel and was so impressed! It feels more like a mini hotel than a hostel and is very clean. Staff are fantastic and are all so friendly. The Big Night Out was good also so I definitely recommend it.
Location was great. Really close to an almost empty beach and a short walk from city center. Wifi was better than expected; it reached just outside the lobby. They start it at 7.30 am and turns it off at 10 pm. The room only had a ceiling fan which looked very dangerous and the room got really hot during the night (we stayed in a room with 7 beds)
stayed here multiple times during my visit to oz,I absolutely loved my stay here everything from the staff to the atmosphere, could not have asked for more in a hostel, has shuttle bus that runs in to town every hour, comes in handy if you don't want to walk as well. again I would highly suggest this hostel to anyone. Keep up the good work guys! Gonna miss you all!
The hostel in general is very good especially the bar and the swimming pool but I think the bedroom was too hot. The fan wasn't enough for the temperature in Gold Coast during the summer. I think they need to improve the ventilation in the bedrooms.

Kinda on the expensive side, but probably the best hostel I've found in Australia so far, so you get what you pay for. Great atmosphere, nice crowd. Only annoying thing is that the rooms were pretty warm, they have fans but they don't help much. Deposits for keys and crockery are really steep so keep an eye on your things.
