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

The bathrooms were unisex,which was a bit confronting,but for the set-up,it was quite good.They even given you a lift certain times during the day when the staff go to & from Surfers Paradise,which given the public transport out in Main Beach/Mariners Cove area is very"few & far between",it's a great incentive!

Hi Aviva B, Thanks very much for taking the time to review your stay with us recently. We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay and found our courtesy bus helpful.

You get what you pay for with this one. Average hostel, clean rooms and bathrooms, kitchen facilities and tv. Staff were great, couldn't fault them, and always helped with any queries. Overall the hostel just needs a bit of an upgrade because it's a bit out dated, but fine for the young backpacker. However, the one negative is that the... More

Offered what a hostel could offer, and was priced accordingly. Cannot say that the rooms, the bedsheets, etc. was the cleanest I have ever seen, but you get what you pay for. We had a car and the place had good options for parking. But if you need public transport to carry you around, you have to arrange for that... More

I had such a good time on this hostel. There is all you need there: Nice place, nice people, private or share rooms, kitchen and good staff! The kitchen wasn`t clean all the time, but that bad! One of the best thing, is the bottle shop in the next door. :) It`s possible to go to city center walking about... More

My rating of 4 out of 5 is based on the hostel itself, not the location which I thought was a little far from the action in Surfers Paradise. Staff nice, friendly. Rooms are clean and spacious. Communal showers and toilets were kept clean too. Easy to meet people here as I met a lot of solo travellers and everyone... More

You get what you pay for with this one. Average hostel with friendly staff. It's clean enough and in a decent location - walking distance to Sea World. Our room, a private double was clean but wasn't the best looking of rooms. Also, I would hardly call Surfers a "Paradise".

I stayed here thinking it was close to the Surfers Paradise however it is not within walking distance. Paper tickets are expensive on the bus. I however managed to spend around $30 for 9 short trips on the Go Card and went all the way to Brisbane and back for free and used the transport system to my advantage. Waiting... More
