The clue’s in the name of our hostel: Backpackers In Paradise. Here, you’ll find a 50ft swimming pool as well as a huge sundeck with a barbecue for cooking up a feast. When you’re not lazing the day away in a hammock or knocking around on the table tennis, grab a free bodyboard and hit the waves. But not before you’ve had your free breakfast in our sunny central courtyard. For a cup of proper barista-made coffee, head to our Paradise Café. Or slip into the Jacuzzi for some serious relaxation!


You’ll find us right in fun, buzzing Surfers Paradise. Can’t wait to get in the water? Surfers Paradise Beach is only 9 minutes’ walk away. If you fancy ticking some culture highlights off your list, stroll 12 minutes to the Skypoint Observation Deck to get those all-important views (and Instagram shots). Roaming off the beaten path? Hop on the bus at the Surfers Paradise station to go further afield. The Light Rail at Cavill Avenue (seven minutes away) will take you to Gold Coast Airport in under an hour with only one change.

Take your pick between mixed and female-only dorms, or go for the double and twin private rooms if you like to do things your own way. All rooms have fresh linen for free, an en-suite bathroom and security lockers for all your stuff. Air con helps you keep your cool in the Aussie summer.

Extras and activities

When night rolls around, curl up in the cinema room or check out our famous Billabong Bar for a cocktail (or two).

    Really loved this hostel! Great friendly atmosphere with plenty to do! The beds were super comfy and i felt so comfortable the whole time! The food is amazing and SO cheap as well as cheap drinks. I highly recommend this hostel overall! Pool was great, walk into town easy, and the bar crawl was super fun too.

    I stayed here while waiting for my 2nd year visa to be approved and I enjoyed my stay. The staff were very friendly, but most were cliquey and kept to themselves - can’t blame them though as most had been there for weeks/months. Nice kitchen, pool, bar and layout. Didn’t have any food from the restaurant but it looked delicious! Considering I was pissed about my visa this place definitely helped make the best of everything so I would definitely recommend staying here if coming to Surfers.

    Pros: good facilities, decent breakfast and good location. Cons: no privacy at all, staff was searching rooms in the evenings (not sure if it was for booze or something else) Also barging in to get people to go to parties. There are plenty of flyers around, if someone wants to go they will go, no need to barge in without any disregard to people sleeping or changing.

    The location was great. The staff were very repetitive and useless when we had just answered the question. There was 1 toilet and 1 shower to accommodate a 10bed. The toilet was in a separate room to the sink so you couldn't wash your hands if someone was showering, the shower room door didn't lock and then the shower door was broken so didn't shut. Was fine for my one night stay as I wasn't in the room, but I don't think I'd want to stay much longer

    The room was much more basic than I expected. There was no air-conditioning as the listing says. The bathroom was shared and not the ensuite I expected as per the listing there was also a cockroach in there one day.

    The hostel it’s self was very nice. the facilities (kitchen, pool area) were very clean and good. how ever over half the people there are staff which created a very bad atmosphere. the staff were very clinquey and uptight and me and my friends felt very excluded and like we couldn’t interact with anyone there

    Avoid! Advertises that there is AC.. there isn’t! Complained to reception, said only SOME rooms have AC. She advised she would contact her manager for us - who we never heard from. Also went to hire the FREE bodyboardS... turns out there is only ONE board to hire & tried to charge us $15 to hire it! Bathroom was a disgrace, black mouldy marks all over the floor, NO hand soap (great in the midst of a potential pandemic!) Kitchen tiny with just couple hobs. Not enough characters to finish review!

    Don't go to this place! It said that the reception closed at 8pm, we arrived at 6pm and there was no one there. We couldn't stay there and had to find another place. Terrible service
