Decent enough location as it's at the end of the main surfers paradise boulevard and the high way and beach are the parallel streets but the hostel was an overall anticlimax, reviews say it's a party hostel and it's in their disclaimer and welcome speach but we felt it wasn't at all, yes it's down to the individuals getting involved...

We came to Surf 'n' Sun after a not so great experience at another hostel. Before we paid for a night one of the lovely staff members showed us around so we could make sure we wanted to stay. After a look around we booked ourselves in for a week and later ended up extending our stay. Pros include spacious... More

The hostel is situated only a few metres from the beach and a very short walk into the town. The workers here are friendly and step off the desk to give you a tour round the facilities. Rooms are spacious with an en suite which is cleaned every morning so smells fresh. Pool is clean and good sun loungers. Kitchen... More

I chose to stay at this hostel after reading the good reviews & was happy with my choice. The best part hands-down is the proximity to the beach -- it's literally a minute from the doorstep to the sand. The hostel itself was a good value; the bathrooms are particularly run-down and could use some upgrading, however. The staff was... More

Booked a room at Surf n Sun backpackers for the night and was amazed by how good the room was! My friend and I got the double room and had a kitchen and dining room which we shared with just one other room. Could not believe how much space we got for just $35 for the night. Staff were nice... More

Stayed here for a week and it was a really nice place to stay. They pick you up from the bus stop and drop you back when you leave. The beach is across the road and its about a 15m walk to the city centre. The room was quite big and clean and the bathroom was ok not great for... More
