    Really great hostel for people on a budget, lovely free breakfast, free washing is great & the WiFi was actually not bad either, unfortunately we had some rude boys in our room that thought it was funny to come in at 4am and wake everyone up & play music and just generally be arses- to make it worse I was poorly & the lack of sleep because of them was making me worse so we asked to move rooms and they upgraded us free from a 10 bed to a 4 which was perfect for us to sleep!Great hostel kind staff

    Seriously great hostel with lots of cool people and opportunities to meet. The kitchen is really nice and modern and clean. The staff are friendly and cool. You are in a good location close to the beach and downtown part of the city. I had an awesome time here.

    Great free breakfast, free laundry, nicely updated bathrooms and kitchens. Is definitely more of a party hostel so keep that in mind when booking. Not much in terms of secure storage, bags are left in hallway cubby where anyone could access and no lockers in room.

    Staff were helpful & friendly, amenities were great with a good common area for chilling out then a separate common area for pre gaming etc. Room was a bit arse especially for the money, could have got a decent air bnb for the same price. Key codes to get in the room mind - only stayed a couple night and 2 randoms just walked in our room! Probably thought we were out.

    While the hostel has great facilities- free WiFi, Landry and breakfast which was amazing, the people staying there were really rude and made me feel extremely uncomfortable. Don’t expect to get a good nights sleep here. I’d avoid surfers paradise in general tbh, especially if you’re a solo traveller

    I asked if it would be possible to change my dorm when I saw I was alone with 4 guys that they’d party all night non stop. The receptionist didn’t want to change me coz I paid just for one night.... the result was that one of them was throwing up in the room everywhere at 4am and all of them been so loud. The hostel was such a mess at this time, everyone so drunk, been loud and disrespectful. I guess I was no lucky with my mates, but the hostel didn’t take any responsability.
