You pay a little more but it is worth it. Only was going to stay a couple of nights but was having such a good time that I ended up staying a week. Very good facilities and rooms and staff very nice. Recommended.

After a terrible experience at a previous backpackers in Surfers, it was a breath of fresh air to be staying somewhere where everyone was social and the staff made an effort with you!

Stayed here for nearly a week and had a great time! I was happy to find the room was cleaned daily. The staff were nice and friendly, location was fine as the beach was around the corner and the bus went every hour into town. Went out on the big night out and that was really fun for a laugh....

Room was average, always quite hot and my bed was painfully squeaky. I was impressed that the hostel had free use of the laundry machine and free body board hire. Free wifi was good, but also creates a line up of anti social backpackers sat outside reception staring at their devices all day. Location was ok, close to a really... More

Stopped here for one night whilst traveling up the Gold Coast. Really friendly and decent little place run by Northerners from England, so it was never going to be any different! Really great atmosphere, everyone having a good time but nothing crazy or out of order. We had an ensuite room which had a shared bathroom and kitchen with another... More

Super late review but these guys are amazing. So helpful and awesome people that help organise things for you or give suggestions. Rooms are cool- bunks allow for a good group of you to crash in the same room. I liked the location- petrol station with food just across the road for necessities or a quick bite to eat, a... More

So we hadn't planned on staying here but due to there being a few more of us then planned, and uni games being on so all the hostels were booked, we ended up here for two nights. We loved it! The staff were so accommodating when we were trying to book up our rooms! They took us out on Big... More
