Sleeping Inn Backpackers
Reviewed July 13, 2013

This is my 2nd time staying at Sleeping Inn. I was there twice for Gold Coast Airport Marathon, once in Jul 2012 and this year Jul 2013. The location is just about 40 mins bus ride from the airport. It is about 1km walk to Surfers Paradise. Public transport is easily accessible. I stayed in a 2 bed dormitory with a shared bathroom and a kitchen. Price is reasonable but don't expect 4 star hotel facilities. What matters most is the convenience.

Room Tip: To choose a 2 bed dormitory, try to take 14B1 as 14B2 has a big heater attached in the bedroom.

The staff is very nice. We actually booked a 4 bed dorm by arrival we told the lady that we just travelled for 24 hours. She said we probably would need a good night sleep and put us in a double room. Very nice. Good location too. The kitchen could have been a little bit better equipped. Thank you sleepinginn

Soon as we arrived we was greeted by friendly staff and could see that this was going to be the place for us. Lots of like minded people out for a good time, always something going on and a really good environment to meet people. Room was clean and cleaners came everyday, we stayed for three days and had a good time. Good location as well, easy walking distance to everything beach town centre pubs and clubs. Thanks SLEEPING INN.

Great place to stay, walking distance from the town centre. Good value and was very happy with our 4 person room. Staff were very helpful and pool was a massive bonus. It attracted a nice group of people.

I was put in a room of 8 people (rather than one of 6 which i'd booked online, because 'that room was full of guys and just one girl') hey ho that was fine and I was pleasantly surprised to see our room had a kitchen, however, in my room was a party of 7 travelling together and I felt a lot more alienated than I would have done with a bunch of solo travellers. Very loud at night, full of drunk people until early hours (hostel nor guests care if you're woken up at daft o clock). Dirty and boring - would definitely not stay here. Wi fi was really intermittent and reception didn't care if you had access or not - not a massive issue but don't say you have it if you don't.
