The bathroom was rank because there was no ventilation. The shower curtain was so mouldy it was stuck together, pretty much useless. The room was so hot and far too small for the 4 of us who were squeezed into it. No air con!!! The staff weren't the most charming men either. They put a lot of pressure on us...

Great little hostel in the heart of Surfers Paradise close to all the action. Real friendly team of backpackers working there, easy to meet people. Great vibes and atmosphere. My room was like a flat, had a living room kitchen and bathroom which was great so homely. Will be back!

Good backpackers hostel. Hostels are what they are. You can only judge them on location and staff. Both were excellent. Located near the bus station and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Would stay again. Eimear at reception was great.

Stayed here last month for 4 nights and it was the best stay I've had in a hostel since being in Australia! The rooms had an apartment style layout which really sets this hostel aside from others I've stayed in. There's constantly something going on which made making friends very easy for someone like me who's travelling solo, and the...

Me and my partner stayed here for one night just to check out surfers paradise. We paid the extra for a double room hoping for a nice little place to relax, the place was very quiet but I can see why. The room was filthy, the windows were caked in mould, the sheets hadn't been changed from the previous guest,...

We can definitely recommend the hostel. We stayed there for 4 nights in an apartment for a small budget. The apartment was great. We had a kitchen, living room and a own bathroom. Everything was very clean and tidy. The staff was very friendly and chilled. So far its definitely one of the best hostels we been!

For the first and only time during my traveling I felt being "at home" and not in a random, empty and chaotic hostel. They have bedrooms organized like in a flat, one living room and kitchen for 3 bedrooms. In the girls one hair dryer and straightener were provided, like a dream for a traveler that needs to bring around...
