I liked this hostel a lot, it was fun and sociable, but also had a good tv area with lots of movies if you didn't feel like going out. The rooms were pretty standard for a hostel, pretty clean all around, it is a bit of an older building though. Close to the beach and bus stops and a short... More

The reviews about this hostel were so good that we booked this for 5 nights. One couple and one more friend in dorms. This hostel is not what we expected at all!! So, it's a ok place to sleep your nights BUT this place is not exactly located next to the beach as it may seem (for example in Google... More

There is a new handy light rail station on the opposite side to us and the beach? Not sure what your problem is about that????Google maps don't lie???we cant tell Google what to... More

The hostel is located right at the heart. Beach is 5-7 mins walk from the hostel. The bus stop is also just 5 mins walk away. All the major clubs are at 15 min walk distance. Surfers paradise is two bus stops away where you find loads of restaurants. Though its a hostel and we stayed in 6 people dormitory... More

The place was ok for the price paid but when I arrived to my room to sleep there was somebody sleeping on my bed and the staff was nowhere to be found. My friend got his pillow stolen and when we found a person who worked there the words we got from him were: Too bad for you brother, your... More

This hostel may be from the outside the worst looking accommodation in the city with its prison like appearance and graffiti yet it is a perfect lesson in why not to judge a hostel by its initial appearance. Just a short walk around from the bus drop off to the reception and you are greeted by the friendly staff who... More

Rooms good size & clean with own bathroom. toilet/showers were fine but could do with a refurb. Bit of a walk of a... More

We enjoyed our stay at surf n sun, they have a good communal area with big tvs and huge dvd collection. Also have (very tiny) tv in the dorm rooms which also play the movies which was a good extra. Only one toilet/shower per dorm which isn't enough seeing as there is only one public toilet in the hostel. Kitchen... More

They have a free pickup-service and a nice small pool. It's very near to the beach but quite far from the centre. They make party every night so it's never boring ;) I slept in a 8-bed-dorm and the bathroom was very little for 8 people, but it was clean.
