We stayed here for 2 nights in one of the apartments which was a real nice change. The apartment had a kitchen area, bathroom and lounge area which was shared with another two people. Would have liked to have stayed here longer if there was more to do in the area. Perfect for a few days chilling out. Wifi was... More

This hostel is every solo travellers dream. Dorms are clean and well looked after- they come in every morning. It's only a short 20min walk into the centre for all the shops and restaurants. Little stores are located near by at petrol stations for your everyday needs. It's 5min walk to the beach. Every night the hostel has something new... More

As soon as you walk into this hostel you know you're in for a good time. There's a bar to the left, volleyball/basketball court in the middle, and pool to the right. All of the rooms are facing into the court and everybody is hanging out outside. The hostel takes you on an epic night out on Wednesdays and Saturdays,... More

An all round excellent hostel. Good staff! Great facilities! A pool! A bar! And when I was there had some amazing roommates! As a British backpacker I had no idea what Schoolies was. I am far from a party person. But this hostel was perfect, the staff were great at organising events and nights out. It brings everyone together! Very... More

Was here for a couple of nights, travelling on my own. Really enjoyed the hostel. Staff were very chilled, good fun and mixed with guests. Nice courtyard in hostel with pool at one end and bar at the other and a tennis court in between. Allowed for plenty socialising among guests! Rooms were ok, well kept and clean. Surfers paradise...

We loved our stay here.. The staff are super helpful and friendly, the center is a basketball/volleyball/tennis court. There's a bar and they have a bus to take you into town for partying. Some nights you get free entry and drinks into the clubs from the hostel. Our room was really clean and comfortable.. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here 4 nights in a twin room and were pretty impressed to discover that we had an apartment style room with our own kitchen, bathroom and lounge which you share with one other room. Free wifi in courtyard and free use of washing machine is a bonus. The pool area is pretty nice. Free shuttle to town and greyhound... More

I did like this hostel. Good atmosphere and the big backpackers night out was great!! They do offer free wifi however it's turned off between 10pm-7:30am and is only available in the courtyard and reception area...hardly seems fair! Also the rooms were very hot...they need some aircon! Staff were lovely and there was a free shuttle into town every hour.... More
