Me and my girlfriend stayed two nights on a 10 bed dorm. The best thing about the hostel is that they do things everyday. It's impossible to get bored!! Thursday's pizza night!!! The public areas are huge and really nice. Totally recommend!

Much better than my last hostel!! Good price for a bed in a ten-bed-room and a friendly staff as well. Really enjoyed my stay in Surfers paradise and Backpackers in paradise. Isn't the cleanest hostel I have ever been to But it is still okay.

Stayed for one night last week. The hostel was clean, friendly staff and good facilities. Ruby was on reception and booked us into our room. She was lovely and very helpful! We made use of the bar to watch the state of origin final. Would be a great place in the summer with chilled out atmosphere and hammocks to relax... More

Stopped for one night on a road trip of the East Coast. Great hostel, clean bedrooms, great facilities including a bar and coffee shop. The English girl on reception was very nice and helpful as we arrived late in the evening. Would definitely recommend!

Booked online for our son to stay for 9 nights. Booked at $28 per night and printed the screen as a reference. Received an email confirming the booking but it was at $30 per night and showed no deposit paid. On checking credit card statement $30 had been taken. Decided not to worry about the incorrect rate but turned up... More

Hi Wayne, As you booked via our website it does clearly state that everyone must have valid ID. It is the law in QLD and unfortunately the medicare card that you provided doesn't qualify and needs to be government issued photographic ID. "To avoid disappointment when checking in you must be over 18 years old and have an international passport."... More

What more are you looking for than a place to put your head down after a heavy night. Second time in surfers so experiencing both the high and low season. Atmosphere isn't the same but still a great night out. The staff are extremely helpful from the moment you walk in. The kitchen can get a bit messy but nothing... More

I came here without reading about it first or knowing anything about the place and I was surprised how great the place was. The staff and travellers who stay here are friendly and the rooms are surprisingly cheap, big and clean. There's a cool bar and a kitchen too for everyone to use, plus the wifi is affordable, which is... More

I've been here in Jan/2015 for a vacation trip around Australia west coastal. Honestly I do not recommend this place and I'd never be back here. The main points for those who are looking for a place: * Location: Great location and it's easy to walk around by foot * Price: it's cheap compare to others hostels, but do not... More

Hi Simone, Thank you for your review. Since your stay with us in January quite a bit has changed in the last 6months. We are now under new management and have refurbished lots of the hostel. If you give me an email we are more than happy to put you up for a night free of charge in one of... More
