They have made this hostel sound very impressive from the leaflet but in fact it's very average and very far from how they make it appear. There is free wifi, but it only works in the reception and is very hard to connect to. The dorms are apartments, mainly for 4 people, with a kitchen, bathroom and living area. The... More

The staff were very accommodating, our coach was not until 6.45pm and they let us use their facilities throughout the day even though we checked out at 10am. One of the more livelier hostels my friends and I have stayed in and the staff did everything they could to get everyone involved. Rooms were clean and the dorm was more... More

You recieve a really great warm welcome when checking in. However it somewhat goes downhill when you enter the room. The size of the dorm is great but it's disgustingly dirty. For example, bed was full of hairs, the bathroom was disgusting and the overall cleanliness was just bad. Some of the cleaners don't really clean, just skim over a... More

I spent 8 nights at Sleeping Inn and got to meet so many new and interesting people everyday! The staff on reception were very friendly and welcoming... Importantly, the beds were very comfortable and room clean and tidy. The hostel was an apartment style so lots of kitchens - which I loved! :) There perhaps could have been more sockets... More

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the staff at Sleeping Inn Backpackers. We had had a few obstacles heading down to the Gold Coast and as a result got there a bit late. The lady (Milka) who worked at the backpackers was so friendly and helpful. After we checked in and she brought us to our room... More

I loved Sleeping Inn so much that I ended up staying for 2 months! (March '13- May '13) When I first arrived, I instantly felt like I was part of a family- it was so welcoming, especially while traveling alone. The funky vibe of the hostel was great and very unique! I loved the open spaces and the games room... More

Myself and my girlfriend booked ourselves into this hostel for three nights, but silly us forgot to organise a pick up with the hostel but luckily it's really easy to find with public transport straight from the airport! We arrived on a Saturday which was great because they do a big night out! It's such an easy way to make... More
