Great location, only a brief walk to the bars & restaurants in Surfers Paradise, yet quiet at night to allow a good night's rest. The owners are fantastic, very courteous and they go the extra mile to ensure the residents have a pleasant stay. Just as I was writing this review, they got a More

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 More

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 More

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 More

I thought the location was great, and the physical hostel itself was nice. My only complaint is because of the amount of people that worked at Budds In Surfers it felt quite unwelcoming and a few individuals defiantly felt like they owned the place. I've stayed in a few hostels big and More

I stayed here for a few nights and had a great time. The staff were friendly and organised nights out every night, so it was really easy to meet people. The hostel was really close to the beach and just a five minute walk into Surfers. Overall I had a great stay at Budds! More

It's a big hostel but it wasn't very busy when I've been there so I was upgraded to a 4bed dorm and I had that one by my self for the first night. The kitchen is clean but the fridge was very dirty. The stuff was alright.. I enjoyed the pool, that was very nice. All in all a nice hostel More

Pillows are either non-existent or flat/lumy/yellowed. Mattresses stained. Top bunk too close to the ceiling fan so risk of being chopped when you climb into bed. Bunks also very unstable. Full of drunk Irish / poms. More
