We stayed for 5 nights, average rooms, beds are decent, we had an ensuite in our room which was clean enough. Our stay was made great by the staff and the atmosphere, there is a basketball hoop and a tennis/volleyball court which is free to use all day. There are benches to the side of this where most people eat... More

Shuttle picks you up from the bus station. Staff was friendly and helpful. I stayed in a five bed with ensuite bathroom. It was pretty much clean although the girl living there in a work holiday had her stuff everywhere (including beer bong :). I would stay here again. It wasn't too close to major tourist area but it was... More

Great staff, very helpful and encourage socialising around the hostel. Free hourly city shuttle very useful. Rooms clean, facilities good, and kitchen clean. Bar cheap, good place to meet other backpackers. Three blocks from the beach! Big night out on a Wed/Sat is a must!

Can't say I had a bad experience here. We did manage to get a great deal where we booked 3 nights and got 3 for free. This helped a hell of a lot as we were short on money. It's quite quiet throughout the day except for the same music being repeated all day...every day. There doesn't seem to be... More

Paid a little extra to get a double room because we read that it was a bit of a party hostel. It was nice to have our own space with kitchen and living area. The kitchen was a bit grubby and so was our room but it was grand. When we took our sheets off the bed to check out,... More

From Surfers Paradise Transit Center it is about 20 minutes walk, but hostel offers a ride with a small bus for free at day time. From backpackers Lounge in Transit center they will make a call for you. This bus also goes once in a hour from hostel to Transit center at daytime. Beach is 3 minutes walk from the... More

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! After originally only planning to stay the one night, we extended it more and more each day! The rooms were the best id seen out of the... More
