I stayed here for 2 nights in December, and my poor experience started as soon as I was collected from the bus depot, where the member of staff driving started telling me during the journey what a nightmare it was working there and how he could not wait to leave ASAP - not exactly filling me with confidence! When I... More

I never write reviews but this place was so much fun, is so clean -- one of the cleanest backpackers I've been to in Australia, and their events each night were fun and everyone hangs out and plays pool or listens to music or watches movies together and uses the pool and hottub, I just wanted to write a review...

This place is like staying in a hotel!! everywhere is clean there is comfy beds clean showers and the rooms great. For anyone staying on the gold coast you can't choose a better place with so many movie selections and easy access to trams and buses and surfers is 3 stops away this place is ideal

Staff are very friendly and helpful. A little on the more expensive side for backpackers to what I'm used to back home but is decent for the area. Only problem is rooms are really hot in the summer and no air con in the rooms. All in all great place to stay

Stayed here in January for 2 nights. Location was a bit too far out from the centre however was right next to a shopping centre with a supermarket, and a team station for way access to town and the beach. The hostel staff were very friendly and got given a tour when arrived, and my bag was even carried to... More

I stayed at the hostel for two nights. It seemed half empty at that time. There is only one toilet in the bathroom of each floor, which is quite bizarre, but didn't seem to be a problem since there weren't many people at the hostel in that time. The light in the rooms is pretty poor, and fans won't help... More

This hostel was lovely with everything you need. All the staff and visitors were very friendly which made you feel very comfortable there. The hostel is close to the main town and very close to an awesome restaurant 'Outback Jacks'. After a long and busy East coast trip this is the perfect place to stay to chill out.
