    I had a great stay. The staff were really friendly and accommodating. Conveniently located for what I needed and great value for money. Had everything needed for cooking etc nice pool but being on a busy road it's a little noisy which I expected. I brought ear plugs with me so it didn't bother me at all.

    Stayed during the Gold Coast Marathon. Location was excellent close to parklands, cafes, shops and easy walk to start line in the morning. The staff were thoughtful and left the kitchen open so we could prepared breakfast in the early morning before the race.

    The people at the front are very nice and kind along with being helpful to accommodate your needs! Rooms are what I expected however no lockers which are pretty iffy. Depending on your room mates it could be a good or bad experience, overall a great place

    Good location close at the tram station, very well equipped kitchen and clean facilities. No lockers available and room either stuffy or loud from the traffic. Can’t say too much about the atmosphere during off-season.

    It was out of season for tourists so the hostel was full of people staying long term. Stayed in a 4bed mixed dorm. 0 lockers so I left valuables in the car which was parked in one of the 4 spaces round the back of the hostel. Located on a fairly busy road. Traffic noise was an issue so I didn’t sleep very well. Smoking area appeared to be the whole perimeter of the hostel so you smelt Staff were really friendly/helpful 👍🏼 probably the biggest positive for this place.

    Das Hostel liegt direkt an einer Hauptstraße, welche sehr laut ist. Allerdings ist es nur eine Minute zur Bahnstation entfernt.Außerdem hatten die Bettlaken Flecken & wenn man nach einem neuen gefragt war es genauso fleckig. Die Duschen hatten keine Tür zum abschließen sondern nur nen Vorhang, waren allerdings einigermaßen sauber.Die anderen Hostelbewohner waren >27 Jahre alt.Man konnte also keine neuen Leute in seinem Alter kennenlernen.Generell war man froh wenn man aus dem Hostel draußen war

    If you like cramped quarters with people sleeping (and snoring loudly) on couches in corridors and in rooms then this place is for you. People parking their cars to block you in with no response from the staff. Overall, it’s cheap but not worth it.
