Fantastic hostel! We stayed overnight in an ensuite room with 2 twin beds. It was everything we needed. Very quiet (especially for a hostel) and we slept with the window open. Thank you for your hospitality.

The hostel was really clean and organized. The amenities were also good. They have a nice TV, computer and study room. The toilets were also new and clean. However one negative point was that the TV and study rooms were locked by 1045pm.

An outstanding place for groups with the ability to hire a whole floor with self catering kitchen and lounge areas. Rooms are very clean and the staff are only too willing to help. Also great for a cheaper accommodation option - particularly with kids. I will use again.

I’ll close this entry with some pictures and a little bit on the Big Wave Complex Hostel that I have stayed at for the past two days. It is considered one of the nicer ones that one can stay at in Australia. It has all the modern amenities - a huge kitchen for making meals, common spaces on each floor... More

We stayed here for a night at the start of May 2014. Though the place was nice and looked modern enough, there were some downfalls. It was overpriced at $155 per night in low season, the rooms were slightly dirty and the common area nearby was noisy late at night (even though we requested a room away from this!). Also,... More
