    I only stayed for 3 days to continue my trip to the north. The place is very comfy, the manager made sure I had enough blankets as it was a bit cold at night, the kitchen has the most utensils that I've never seen, mattresses are vey comfortable and everything was clean. I would highlight that is very relaxed and chilled place to stay and people there were friendly. I would stay here again!

    I had a wonderful time staying here! The staff were friendly and helpful. they have a couple of long term guests that were fun to hang with as well. Definitely is not a party hostel witch is great because surfers paradise is a great place to go out and party. so was nice to know i could get a decent night sleep even in a 12 bed dorm. they have lots of signs up with general rules and i was shocked at the other guests that did not keep the kitchen clean. They should hire better cleaning staff.

    This is a hostel to rest, recuperate, study, work etc. Quite relaxed vibe, staff are great and very short walk to party atmosphere, food and beaches.

    Very Good

    Stayed for 1 night so we feel we can’t review that much as we barely spent time here. The kitchen needs some TLC (but has lots of utensils available) & security is pretty low - anyone can walk in & no lockers in dorms but reception has locker (access 8-8). It’s a chilled homely hostel - for the price it is we were overall happy. The lady on reception was very nice & actually gave us a 4 bed dorm to ourselves! Atmosphere was low but I reckon we came at a quiet period so no fault of their own.

    Accommodation satisfactory for last minute decision to participate in Gold Coast Half Marathon. Disappointed to find rubbish still in bin from previous occupants. Booking was made early Saturday morning and arrival after 3pm! Only given one sheet and a blanket, for each bed. We have stayed in a backpackers before were beds were fully made and room clean before arrival. Staff pleasant.

    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.

    I couldn’t even sleep. I left and booked another backpacker. Everything dirty, the staff was just starting and there was no one to support him. The rooms are creepy and I didn’t feel safe there. I would never come back or recommend.
