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.

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).

    I loved this hostel, it was a party and quiet environment at the same time even though people were having a good tome you could barely hear it from the rooms. The beds are pretty comfortable and the bar has cheap drinks. There is free breakfast and everyone is so nice

    My first ever hostel experience and certainly will not be my last. There is not one bad thing I could say about the hostel as a whole, I felt it was so well run and kept clean at all times by staff. I felt very safe here and really enjoyed my stay. The food is very cheap and very nice from the onsite kitchen, also the communal kitchen had everything I needed in order to cook up my own meals. When ever I return to the Gold Coast in the future this will be the hostel I stay at

    Nice hostel. Walls are pretty thin. Plenty of areas to sit and chill outside. Kitchen was quite small so cooking was a bit cramped. The guy working in the cafe in the mornings was not the most efficient. Didn’t appear to take any more orders if he already had one, so could you be waiting 15minutes for just a coffee. He was also the one in charge of free toast but again you could be waiting 10 mins as he didn’t bother putting more toast in the toaster. Would stay again.

    Enjoyed the one night stay there with my four other friends. We made good use of the pool there. What was surprising was that we were not expecting breakfast for free, it was an overwhelming surprise and other extras were extremely reasonable, which we did explore and had.

    I had a great time at this hostel and it had a nice chill atmosphere. Gusests and staff were really sociable. Close to Cbd and beach. Really nice cheap cafe. Only problem was my room was absolutely boiling due to the insulation and no air con. Also there was rips in my sheets. I would come again though!

    Good location near the beach and kitchen although small was never to busy. The rooms were quite dark and dingy and you are just given sheets and have to make your own bed (also mattresses are horrendous). Atmosphere wasn’t as social as other places I’ve been. They did have activities on but they weren’t that well organised or good. Overall it was good value for money and location was good which are the most important things.

    Rooms were dirty could do with a good clean. 4 sockets in a 14 dorm room and they were located in awkward places such as the bathroom. The location was good. Free breakfast from 8am till 10am, when asking the guy at the cafe where the breakfast was held (which was after 8am) he was rude. Wouldn’t recommend for solo travellers as we felt the hostel was not a good vibe.
