Great atmosphere so much going on. Awesome prices at the bar and friendly staff especially the lovely women behind the bar. She was really friendly and funny. Our room was clean and they gave us the entire room to ourselves. And better prices on the pub crawl than the people on the street.

Stayed here with two mates, pretty much has everything you need! On suite bathroom, $6 cider (trust me on this, that is a bigger deal than Ron Burgundy himself) also has an Xbox, so is an ultimate winner..... Oh yeah and the people are pretty cool too. Would I stay here again? Is the pope catholic?

This place wasn't our cup of tea but I imagine it would suit others. Beer pong and drinking games going on from early afternoon. Didn't use the kitchen so don't know about that. Location was good for bars/restaurants/beach/shops etc. We had an apartment the first night, little bit dingy but big and clean, though bed was sinking a bit and... More

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.
