3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It's very well located, near the Greyhound bus stop and the center. Many young people and activities for spending time together. There is a bar that offers an all day breakfast at a good price. But the mattress was terrible.

I had a good time at backpackers in paradise. It was fun and I loved it. I would recommend to any other horrendous individuals like myself who are intent on self-destruction through alcohol poisoning and UV rays.

Made loads of great friends, lovely atmosphere. There's always something to do, friendly staff, good cleaners. Bars cheap and the nights out are brilliant would definitely go back there in the future. The rooms are cleaned daily and the beds are comfortable.

Really good laugh, good crowd and good staff. Definitely go out with the hostel at night, sick setup. Surfers is a great spot and the hostel is close to everything you need, stumbling distance from the clubs too which helps too. In all good place.

One of the best hostels I have stayed in Australia, friendly staff and the atmosphere makes it rooms cleaned everyday. Cheap bar that plays music of your choice on a playlist and pool aswell for the hangovers. Really recommend it with God served daily from the cafe.
