Jet boating, Surfing, scuba diving, all right there. they have a shuttle bus that goes into Surfers Paradise every day. nice and clean,... More

I booked the Surfer's Paradise YHA as I have had great experiences at other YHAs in Australia, but I actually ended up changing hostels after one night here. The staff were pleasant but not particularly friendly. Other YHAs I have stayed in had a better welcome and feeling about them. You have to pay a deposit for your key here... More

My friend and I stayed in a female 6 bed dorm which was very dark, dingy and far too hot. There was only one tiny window and two rubbish office fans in the room, which were useless, we hardly slept because of this and the mattress cover and the sheets weren't very appealing either. We really appreciated the free shuttle... More

A nice hostel - clean room & bathrooms and good facilities. Kitchen and common area spacious and well kept - good TV with movies and games. Room was spacious but could do with more light. Location is good for the beach but a little far out from the town. The free shuttle buses are useful for getting around in the... More

Two steps away from the beach, this place is great to relax after the city (in my case Brisbane). It's off season yet the weather is fantastic, the hostel is half empty, I have a 4 bed dorm to myself, what else can I ask for? The rooms are quite outdated but roomy. They have massive windows which is weird... More

The room was spacious, but had a weird smell. The common areas were ok. Smoking was not allowed in the hostels area, only outside, what is very good. Although it's located only a few steps from the beach, the location is not very good because it's quite far from the center, if you don't have a car.

Just stayed 3 nights at Surfers paradise yha, can highly recommended. Location was great, right across from the beach at Main Beach. In was a bit worried about booking and being right near all the noisy night clubs and traffic but I was pleasantly surprised.

Rooms were standard and beds were mostly comfortable. Generally clean but the kitchen needs to have more space for the number of guests that are using it. Communal areas and balcony are spacious and nice. It's a shame the hostel is so far out from the main town at that cheap evening transport is hard to come by. As weer,... More

Booked a private room for 2 at this YHA and based on the pictures and real life - there's a big difference! As a previous post said, it felt like a jail. There is one small window to let the air, mosquitoes, flys and bugs in/out. 2 fans in the room. The double was 2 separate twin beds and located... More
