Rooms are un clean. There were prevoious visitor rubbish under the bed and sand in the bed + bugs. . And we get the good room they said. Don't want to see other rooms then. And first of all, they charged me double for this room. Luckily I get my money back. The hostess even didn't know where is the... More

This was my 1st experience but this place was great! Rosie runs a really nice fun chilled out and relaxed place. Everyone was really nice and accommodating, welcoming and encourage everyone if wanted to participate in the fun and games. Always having fun and laughing and meeting great new friends. Thank you Rosie and team for a really fantastic experience.

Well this was my first experience at a hostel. It was cheap, very cosy and had amazing staff. I have seen previous reviews that were quite negative, But I must say you get what you're payed for and I really did. This place enabled me to experience a variety of cultures in a environment which was very home like whilst... More

I personally thought it wasn't too bad the place needs abit of Reno's though in saying that you get what you paid for. I would stay there again because of the location, surfers paradise beach is 6-7mins away by car and there's a big Shopping center 2min walk down the road.

She took us to the room then immediately thought OMG the floors are dirty, fan is old and dirty as well, bathroom can be flooded after shower because... More

This is a very run down place. It looks dirty, but I think it's because it needs renovating rather then cleaning. There's ants EVERYWHERE! The kitchen is generally keep very clean, the rest of the hostel however, is not. The rooms are a reasonable size. The pool is quite nice but I saw the cleaner using the water to clean... More

Jan/2012 I stayed in for one night only. It was the worst hostel I stayed. Kitchen, pool and totally disorganized and dirty bathrooms. The hostel is noisy and the attendant Trekkers stayed until three hours talking and laughing too loud, I could not sleep. I did not eat breakfast because of lack of cleanliness, I'd rather not eat. I definitely... More
