If your looking for: Unbearable mattresses that are as thin as a blanket with a dip in the middle and clearly 10 years old, cockroaches, loud music at 9 am, then you will have no problem staying here. Our room was infested with roaches, clearly this place hasn't been properly cleaned in a while, a bug terminator might be a... More

Not sure how this hostel is marked so highly... I can only put down to the positive reviews coming from people who are happy sleeping in an unhygienic environment. Myself and a friend booked 2 beds in a 4 dorm room... It turned out it was an apartment with 3 dorms (12 people) sharing one shower, toilet and kitchen. The... More

I stayed there only for a few nights but I must have met the friendliest and most helpful staff ever! They were helping me with everything I needed e.g. booking bus tickets. I also got a shuttle drive to the bus station when I left there. I was traveling with a friend and for some reason we got a dorm... More

I recently stayed in sleeping inn for a couple of nights and really enjoyed myself. There are different activities every night that was really fun and cheap, especially the $5 all you can eat bbq. There was drinking games each night which was a great way to meet new people! The free wifi is a good feature but it's not... More

We recently stayed at the Sleeping Inn, and I was very impressed with the HUGE room where we had a living room, our bedroom with the 4 hostel beds, and a full kitchen! Definitely unique. Those at the desk were extremely helpful, and hospitable. The lady working the desk even let me borrow her cell phone to Shazam a song... More

Overall, I had a wonderful stay at the Sleeping Inn. My only concern was with the noise coming from the nearby apartments. Aside from that, my experience was very nice. The staff was very polite and answered all of my questions. The location gave my some good walks, and near the beaches plus the heart of Surfers Paradise. In addition,... More

What a fantastic location ....on top of town and a short walk to the beach. Great facilities at the hostel, we had our own living room and kitchen. Made such a difference to have a bit of space and privacy. Our room was small but comfortable, we didn't spend a lot of time in our rooms so to be honest... More

Great atmosphere! Great people! The staff was getting out of their way to make me feel welcome. I travelled on my own now for 6 months and never found it that easy to get in touch with new people. My room was inside an apartment? Really different. Haven't seen this kinda style before? The big night out club crawl was... More

The staff were super nice! They picked us up from the bus stop and took us back to the hostel. Loved that they were apartment style accommodations so we shared a kitchen and living room with only 8 other people, made it very homey. The pubcrawl was a great way to meet people and was tons of fun. Only negative... More

Sleeping Inn is the kind of hostel you never want to leave. The fact that this hostel is B.Y.O means that the crowd at Sleeping Inn that are awesome normally, then turn respectively bonkers after a few quick rounds at Goon Pong. Prepare for some heated matches! If you are trying to save money, probably best to stay somewhere quiet... More
