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.

This must be the cheapest private room accommodation on the gold coast. I have stayed at Arrival over the years and have always been happy. The temporary Manager has now moved on..and the new Manager is a relation to the owner, he tells me..he seem very helpful. There are 4 live in cleaners who carry out their duties each day.... More

This place was described as a hotel but it was more like a hostel. i would have enjoyed sleeping in a prison cell more than staying at this piece of wood. The pool was absolutely disgusting it looked like a bath where people would go to wash their dirty feet. It was very disappointing, the positive reviews did not live... More

Honestly the worst I have ever seen. Somewhere between a North Korean prisoner of war camp, a half way house or something from nightmare on elm street. The smell was horrific. The bathroom looked like something out of the 70's but with a lack of quality plumbing as the taps were constantly in a flow. The bed was like sleeping... More

Normally I stay at four star resort style places. Travelled solo so took cheap option. Really better than I expected. Owners friendly. People staying there were friendly in the common tv area. Room was basic - booked single room and got single plus double bed on the top floor. The bed was like what I think I had when I... More
