Had an awesome couple of nights here chilling in the pool, playin B Ball and have some very reasonably priced beers. Tram stop just up the road. Nice and close to everything you need.

Really near to the beach. Wish that the WiFi reached up to the rooms, however I understand the security issues if that happens. But it would have made our stay a bit more convenient. Love how there's a free washing machine option for laundry though. And the staff are super helpful. Would definitely consider staying here again if I return to Surfers.

15 min walk to center or you can take a tram. Bar is quiet and it is only for the quests of the hostel. This is also a right place if you want to sleep long in the mornings.

Pros:the place is nice, if you like sports is the place for you. really cheap beers at the bar and my room was really good, there's a free washing machine which is really nice . Cons: is placed on an highway, so you have to walk at least 15 mins to reach everything ( or wait for the shuttle), my room was really really dirty.

The beds are very confortable. Our shower was terrible, the water was thinner than water sink, very bad for taking a shower. The location is OK, something about 15 minutes to get to the city walking.

It's very valuable for money, the price is cheap, the environment is clean, and the staffs are nice There are some facilities such as sauna, pool, basketball court, bar...etc to use, which is very convenient. Besides, it's not far to go to surfers paradise by walk. Warm recommended.

Nice hostel! Clean and confortable! Not so close from the center of surfers paradise, but have a free bus to go to the centre each one hour. Good price of beer in the bar. Good kitchen to cook. Wi fi only work at 7am to 10am and only in the reception.

Great place to stay. Friendly staff. It is a 15 minute walk on the beach from the center, but they have a free shuttle as well. The backpackers night out that they have on wednesdays and saturdays was a lot of fun. The staff is helpfull with booking activities. Pool area, pool table, volleyball and tennis court. Lots of fun to stay here.

A fantastic hostel with awesome people. The staff were obliging, friendly and the atmosphere was great. I had such a good time, I hope to come back in the summer. I really have no complaints, the facilities were excellent, especially the free wifi, bar and of course great company. The hostel was kept clean and the staff were happy to help out with any questions or requests. Would recommend staying here 100% :)

Really welcoming atmosphere and staff. Got picked up by staff with the courtesy bus at the transit centre, checked me in, then he walked me to my room whilst carrying my sheets and blanket like a proper hotel bellboy. That was a first for me! Great deal with whale watching and they lend you all the stuff you would need in Gold Coast. 5 minute walk away from the beach. Only negative comment is that they leave the vicinity gate wide open 24/7. I'd stay here again now that the tram is operational.

Nice hostel with good facilities such as a free washing machine! Bathrooms were good a little small for a big dorm. Kitchen was good and fairly clean. Quite a walk into surfers but they have a shuttle bus which I used a lot. Not byo but the bar is reasonable.
