    This hostel has been great to me. I suffered an unfortunate injury on my second day staying here meaning I’d have to extend my stay for hospital follow ups. The lady at reception was very kind and helpful. She made sure I had a bottom bunk as I was unable to climb a ladder, helped me with directions to the hospital and has great local knowledge. The hostel itself is clean and spacious. You get what you pay for, it’s a cheap hostel right in the heart of surfers. Would recommend to anyone

    Best hostel in surfers, if you’re looking for more of a relaxed and laidback vibe rather than 24/7 party. Very easy to get to know people, as everyone automatically meets up in the little courtyard and there’s always people around willing to share a couple of beers/coffees and good conversation. Lovely staff, always up for a chat. This hostel truly has character, would always come back!

    Perfect stay for a few quiet nights away from the centre. Facilities very basic and could do with a lick of paint, run down feeling. Kitchen and bathroom were sometimes dirty but that's down to other people not the staff and sadly lots of flies in kitchen. However, staff were most helpful and keen to offer advice on area.

    the room was warm, the fan was not enough. The kitchen is locked very early and we were unable to get our food and fresh water and we were not warned of it. One terrible night.

    Probably the worst hostel I’ve ever stayed in. I was in a room that was off of another room so we had so many people in the rooms it was so loud. There was no one there to check us in when we got off our bus at 915 (like what no night person?) the lady was lovely that helped us solve it tho. The room was a sweat box, I had the fan pumping on me so I was sweet but my friend was dying of heat all night she couldn’t sleep. dorms were gross with people staying long term stuff

    Couple O' Days was my least favorite hostel in Surfers Paradise (I also stayed at Sleeping Inn and Bunk). The rooms were a decent size, but there wasn't much storage so they were messy and everyone's stuff was all over the place. The bathroom was small and the shower was tiny and didn't feel very clean. I was only there for a night and didn't spend any time there during the day. It was okay for sleeping, but definitely not a place I would've wanted to hang around more than needed.

    Your average grungy hostel. Doors left wide open and no lockers! Kitchen was not clean but staff very kindly let us use it after hours. Staff were really kind and helpful but the security and vibe of this place really let it down. A few people living there long term and being very noisy in the mornings between 530am and 730am! Definitely not the worst hostel I’ve stayed at but would avoid going again. Also there was no free parking on site - we just parked in the street.
