Perfect place to stay in Surfers Paradise. Friendly staff, clean facilities, swimming pool, evening bar with cheap drinks. Hostel is close to the beach, to Woolworths (10 min walk). There is a coffee place on the side with a nice breakfasts (very cheap), open every morning. This place is great when visiting Gold Coast.

Located close to the beach and main shopping streets. The hostel is affordable for budget travellers, and has a large variety of amenaties. The staff was very friendly and helpful in giving us a room last minute at the time of check in. Reccomended to anyone looking for an affordable hostel close to the beach.

A great location just a 10 minute walk to the beach and the Main Street of Surfers Paradise. Very affordable and has a lot of facilities, including an onsite bar, pool, store etc. We we're accepted without a booking too, which was really helpful!

Just a 5-10min walk from Surfer's Boulevard, this is a place that has good location and amenities. Atmosphere was relaxed, has a nice pool but too bad we went in winter. I like the hammocks outside the rooms for chilling.

If you're looking to party this place has it. They organize trips to bars and other stuff like that. If not, don't bother. Big dorms (loud; large groups chatting until late at night; some disrespectful travellers), free wifi is 30 min/24 hrs and is slow, staff minimally-moderately knowledgeable about anything in town that's not a bar or woolworths.

This hostel has very helpful and friendly staff and a great outdoor space including a swimming pool and hammocks. It has a nice cheap bar with a TV and pool tables. It has very good wifi throughout which only costs $2 for 24 hours. It's only a short walk from the beach.
