My friend and I recently spent a night at the Surf 'N' Snow Backpackers and had the worst night sleep ever. We have both spent a lot of time travelling and staying in backpackers, and this has definitely been the worse experience for us both. The room wasn't too messy, as many reviews have stated, but the beds were a disgrace. Not only were the beds unbelievably uncomfortable (we paid for a double, en-suite room...not the cheapest), the bedding looked centuries old and smelt. Our room had no windows and there was no ventilation whatsoever, not only did this mean it was unbearably hot, but also meant it smelt musty. Not only did we spend the whole night in a stuffy room with an uncomfortable bed, we got woken up at 6/7am by construction just next door to us. Jack-hammering and drilling is not the nicest alarm at that hour of the morning. If this work had been planned in advance, it would have been more suitable to put us in different room.
I have to admit that the staff were very friendly (although a little unorganised), and the location was perfect, but I will NEVER return to this backpackers...and with a number of backpackers and budget accommodation in the CBD, many of which I have stayed in, I would advise anyone to stay well clear of this backpackers...
