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 17 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.

    My first experience in a hostel and what a brilliant one it was! The staff could not have been more welcoming and lovely; awesome people who genuinely care about you having the best and most comfortable stay. They made my time there so great that I ended up staying an extra 5 nights than planned! Rooms were super clean, events were well organised and the facilities were good too. Left with the loveliest of memories, will definitely be returning!

    Great staff and facilities. Only slight improvement would be making breakfast available earlier because you can’t go there really if you have anything planned in the morning. That might be by design though

    Very convenient location. We made a late check in (10pm) and the girl at the front desk made our stay with just easy words: I was waiting for you. Lovely. The breakfast is pretty basic, just cereals &toast. It’s clean and the kitchen is well equipped. Many facilities so you can just chill there as sofás and outdoor area+swimming pool. I def recommend it

    It was good, the only bad thing is they don’t have soap in the toilets.

    Excellent location for the price, easy walking distance to surfers paradise and cavill avenue. Awesome outdoor area, pool and bar to hang out in. Rooms/beds/bathrooms are pretty 'get what you pay for' but for a place to sleep so close to the surfers paradise you can't complain.

    Good located in Surfers Paradise and the rooms were clean. The kitchen was way too small to cook.

    Only stayed for one night in the large 20 dorm. Lights didn’t work so the atmosphere in the room itself was a bit eerie but the bar was class. Went on the barcrawl but got left behind at the hostel and had to ring the hostel and find our own way there. Guy named Chris was really helpful so thanks mate. Decent location very close to bars and the beach. Decent hostel overall.

    Nice enough place. The club crawl was disappointing considering the how hyped up it was by the staff.

    No Aussies allowed in dorms is a joke of a rule! I had to pay over $80 for a private room and still share a bathroom. I had no issue in Byron Bay or Brisbane. The room itself was a double bed with a door, window and one electrical outlet that happens to be on the other side of the room - I couldn’t charge my phone Whilst lying on my bed. The hostel itself is old and rundown; lacks comfort. The staff are friendly and the drinks are cheap. Free brekky is a nice touch (2 toast).
