For the cost of the place it was quiet nice. the rooms are small and you share a bathroom with other guests which was all fairly tidy.I would be appropriate for travellers and people wanting to experience the night life the gold coast has to offer cause it was very close

I stayed for 4 nights. There is no blanket or quilt in the room, but you can ask for free. Free breakfast, free wifi, friendly staff, and you can drink in their bar. I like to use the ladies only bathroom. But one of nights, The noise made me wake up at midnight, many people still talked and laughed outside...... More

Literally a home from home! As soon as I arrived with 2 friends the staff and other guests were so friendly and... More

Good points: free wifi, free breakfast, modern showers Bad points: hair all over the floors in the showers and our bedroom, only a few plugs in the room, none by your bed, squeaky and uncomfortable beds. The whole place could do with a... More

I dont normally bother writing a review however this place is so trashy I felt I had to...The staff are rude, The whole place is run around its staff and not their paying customers, they have the music blaring through the whole place so you have to raise your voice to even speak. There are 8 showers shared between over... More

From the moment we walked in this hostel was disgusting. The kitchen was tiny and was filthy and had mouldy food and the dishes were never washed. The toilets and showers are unisex and they are some of the worst we've ever seen. The staff didn't clean them at all and there was toilet paper everywhere. They just seemed to... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in September, the staff were friendly and the events they run at night are great (free entry + free drink) and helped us save a bit of money on our traveller budget. Everywhere seemed clean but it wouldn't suffer from an update.

Nice hostel close enough to the town. Lovely staff always willing to help. Free internet and breakfast alway a bonus. Would recommend this place as great value for money. Would come back here if I was ever in the area again.
