Great location, only a 5 minute walk to the main street. Friendly staff and plenty going on around the hostel (BBQ's etc). Clean rooms, with an adequate kitchen. However, Internet could only be used in the public area by reception which was a bit annoying but other than that a good place to stay!

I only stayed here for one night. But really enjoyed it. The staff were so friendly, and welcoming, also helped carry my luggage which was a nice gesture. As well as, got picked up and dropped off at the coach station by the hostel. Had the $5 all you can eat BBQ, which was so yummy! And then went out... More

This hostel had a brilliant atmosphere. Staff were very welcoming and kind and pick you up in an old limousine! Rooms are small but have shared kitchen and common areas which are very social. Really easy to make friends here, so perfect if you are travelling alone. I stayed for 8 nights, but would have loved to live here for... More

I stayed in this hostel some years ago and really enjoyed it so decided to return this trip, but sad to say I was disappointed this trip.

Great management. An activity organized every night. Close to all you need in Surfers Paradise. Small enough to get to know other Travellers. Apartment style kitchens makes having a longer stay more comfortable. Good pool. Highly recommended.

Checked out less than an hour after checking in. No air conditioning, filthy common areas and cockroaches. What's worse is that the staff contacted me on my original check out date to say that they couldn't find me! Obviously some really good communication there. After them asking again why I had decided to check out early and me telling the... More

After spending two nights in Brisbane I was ready to pack my bags and go back to New Zealand beause of the staff being incredibly rude but decided to give Surfers Paradise a chance. And this was the best decision I could have made because I had a wonderful time here. This hostel is ideal if you're after a party... More

The descriptions and ideas behind this hostel are great. Apartment style rooms with tv rooms and a kitchen split between 4 people, 8 or slightly more. Brilliant. However this doesn't actually happen. Fair enough the hostel description says "majority" of rooms have own tv rooms but when you arrive into your "flat" and realise the company has sold out to... More

Best staff, good rooms, amazing nightlife, good games room to get your fix on movies, loads of fun, good location, if you go make sure you go for a big night out! Highly recommend staying here. Book a week because you'll probably extend!
