No air con in the dorms make it impossible to sleep in the Aussie heat and the cheap mattresses don't help either. The hostel is actually a 20 min walk from surfers and not in surfers itself. Although they do run a bus it's only on for a few hours during the day. Wouldn't stay again, there are plenty of... More

This is the best hostel i've visited in Australia. Nice and clean rooms, lots of free accommodations. Friendly staff and good location. This hostel is located near the beach, city and shopping place. I recommend it for a young people who want a good place for a cheap price

This hostel was great. Lots of activities, bar, free bus to the beach. All the staff were friendly. Room was more of an apartment. bedroom, kitchen, sitting room, balcony. We had a car and parking was not great but they workmen in tiling a downstairs area (this was not at all noisy) so there were taking up more parking space... More

One of the best hostels we have stayed at during our 10 month trip in Australia so far. Everything is very clean, great location with a free shuttle bus into town. Lovely and hospitable staff and the overall atmosphere of the hostel was great.

We didn't stay in the dorms but in a van outside so i cannot comment on the rooms. We stayed for 3 nights and wanted to stay more...the camping amenities (showers and toliets) a small bit far away but so clean and the first decent shower we encountered! The rest of the hostel was flawless! The staff were super friendly!... More

We stayed for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer! Of all the hostels we have stayed in across the world, this rates at number 1!! There's a definite backpackers vibe and were made to feel welcome by all the guests and staff as soon as we arrived. Rooms are clean, big and comfortable and we were lucky... More

I enjoyed my stay here. Some rooms are connected by a joint lounge which was nice. They had a bbq dinner night. Staff were super friendly and helpful. If I went back to surfers and i was backpacking I'd go there again.
