    Amazing, the best hostel I have stayed in in Australia by a long way! Rick the owner is very welcoming as are all the staff. You can tell how much he cares about the hostel and the guests. The staff seem to be cleaning 24/7. Can’t recommend this place enough. Great location near all the main bars in Surfers Paradise

    Such a clean hostel. Common area looks amazing and rooms have plenty of space. Free breakfast is great. 4 minutes walk to everything you need (beach, city center, tram and shops) definitely come back!

    Amazing experience! Staff was very friendly and helpful and the hostel has everything and more that you may need: free breakfast, lovely new lounge area with TV and Netflix, iMacs and free laundry! Most importantly, the bathrooms, the room and kitchen were clean and tidy which is a rare find in hostels. First time staying, definitely coming back soon!

    I stayed in this hostel when I first came to Australia and now if I'm going to the gold coast it's a no brainer I always choice to stay here each time. The staff are amazing they will go out of there way to make everyone comfortable, the rooms are always kept clean, nice community area upstairs. The owner takes good care of the place and often comes in through the week, which in my opinion is good as a lot of places you will probs never meet the owner. I would recommend to anyone.

    Loved my stay here, booked in for two nights and ended up staying for the week. Worth the extra few dollars compared to other hostels in surfers, as it’s super clean, bathrooms are nice, free laundry & great breakfast!! Plus party room and social area. The staff are all so friendly and go above and beyond, with special mention to Isa and Sarah on reception and Klara and Henry on breakfast/house keeping. I would definitely stay here again.

    If you are looking for a party hostel go for it. We wanted a quiet night to rest before a long flight and people were partying in the hostel until 4am when it was supposed to be quiet after 10pm. The common area and the kitchen are in the first floor and we could hear the music, tv and people screaming all the time.
