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.

I really don't see why there's so many bad reviews. Myself and my girlfriend had a great time at Arrival. We found the staff to be professional, friendly and the room/bathrooms to be clean. They did explain they recently purchased the accomodation so perhaps the previous owners are to blame for the negative reviews.

For nearly the same price you can stay at say the Meriton with separate bedrooms, your own kitchen/bathroom plus living area with exceptionally clean accommodation. At Arrival Accommodation you get a pokey, dingy room with threadbare linen. Also if you want to sit down you have to go to communal areas, and forget about the bathrooms, disgusting. Left after one... More

We paid $60/double bed/night, which was really cheap. You get what you pay for. The blanket smells a little but other than that everything is acceptable for such low price. We basically only needed a bed to lay down (rather than sleeping in our car) and hot showers. And they were all provided.
