One staff member very rude and swore in front of my children. Not welcoming at all . Ask for $50 immediately upon arrival for key deposit. Shred bathrooms . Both bathrooms and rooms not very clean. Only spent one night couldn't wait to get out of there.

We honestly strongly recommend not to go here - there are other accommodation options within the price range that will be worth your money. The walls were too thin and we could clearly hear others all throughout the night - was not able to sleep. The room itself as well as facilities were inappropriately dirty. Think twice before you choose.

Share bathroom for all. No separate bathroom at room . You need to pay extra for the parking. Noisy. Drank man roaming around the hallway. Not a good place to stay specially for family. I regretted it paying $110 for a night plus parking.

Observation & Analysis: Walked in to 2nd floor reception to check in during the morning of 04/05/15 and I was greeted by megawatt smiles by Greg and Annette (superbly friendly people). Greg showed me my room on the 1st floor which was facing the pool along with showing me where the toilets and smoking areas were, even gave me pointers... More

Arrived mid evening and was shown to my room by a friendly staff member who also helpfully pointed me in the direction of Australia Fair. Basic room with literally bed and lamp, but considering it was the room next to the toilets and showers, quite quiet. The loos and showers were clean and pleasant the whole length of my stay....

I stayed here for two nights but there were only few other guests. The place is overall clean but a little bit rundown and it lacked any atmosphere. If you're planning to go to the beaches you will have a fair walk, but for staying a night when passing through it's definitively worth the money. Parking is available in the... More

Better than a backpackers, slightly less than a 5 star hotel. Warm friendly staff clean rooms great environment, the new G-link close by into Surfers paradise is a plus runs all weekend, not far the Australia Fair. Always good to cook in a commune style kitchen with other people from all walks of life and countries, will be back with... More

We had a brilliant experience at arrival, the premises is well maintained, clean and presented. Beds are clean and comfortable. Conveniently located with just a short walk to the tram station and small store just across the road. Would highly recommend this hostel.
