Easy to get around surfers paradise with the tram stop across the road. Friendly and helpful staff. Good atmosphere and relaxing.
We did just overnight sleep in mixed dorm. Room was nice and clean and people were also nice. Staff was superfriendly and helped us and show everything even we had a bit late check-in. Would stay there again!
very convenient to trams shopping major events and holiday theme parks thanks guys we had a comfortable stay
All good no complaints
The pool and spa and its location
You could only get wifi in the social areas and not in the rooms
all good ..if u r planing to stay at backpakers its a good place to stay
no lockers but you can give your stuf such as passort to reception
The bath room was clean. All the guests at this hostel obeyed the rule so it was quiet at night and I could sleep well.
Free wifi provided by this hostel is sometimes too weak to connect in our own room. If the hostel were located in Sufers Paradise, I would have enjoyed night more.
Staff were awesome! Rooms And bathroom were fine no complaints. Kitchen facilities were really good and the quiz nights and deals they do for nights our are really good!
1 very friendly and welcoming staff 2 clean kitchen , clean room and wonderful experience of playing card game in the night with other interesting mates 3 wonderful living condition
slow wifi connection
Good location. Secure & clean. Free bus into shopping facilities. Plenty of food in walking distance. Bar on site, so no other alcohol. Some games (darts & pool) in recreation area. Tour bookings available.
Average kitchen facilities & eating outside in smoking area. Limited on site parking.Noise from traffic & squeaky trams. Loud music too late at night.
ladders were a bit shakey. Ladder rungs were too thin and dug into my feet.
The staff is really friendly and helpful. The comfort and the facilities are what you expect in a hostle so it is totally fair. In general for a week or just a couple of days it is definitely ok.
Well, the Wifi is for free. Thats good but the availabity wasn't so. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it doesn't.
All.. So I add extra few days
Internet hostel mobile reception with Optus
- Clean bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen. - Comfort common/TV room. - Kind receptionist.
- The stair location is somewhat confusing. Seems it would be easier to find if there is no door in the entry. - No barrier/fence for the upper bed, which may be risky.
Near Australia Fair
I have to bring down the bed sheet, blanket & pillow case during check out which is difficult with the stuff I have. I have to go up and down twice which is not efficient.
Staff were brilliant
clean and quite
wifi is unlimited but limited with 100mb quota for every single session. 100mb is like surfing 10 mins. So for every session you need to head to reception for a new password which i didnt like at all
Meeting all the different nationality from all over the world and its a very good way of making new friends from all different parts of this universe and its in Southport which is very close to Surfers Paradise and very close to nearly most everythings that you will need to make your visit and stay more enjoyable
Cooling very poor in the rooms cos it was very HOT and the Gold Coast is a very warm environment in Queensland
Place is fine, Liquor rules are a bit silly not all backpackers can afford to but from the bar.
Being so far from the beach but bus does run efficiently
Never have I met ruder staff. So unhelpful
One of the staff was especially helpful and professional, I appreciated it a lot, his name is Jack!!
I paid 50 AUD/night (4 in total) sleeping in a dormitory (4 and 6), to, to expensive for a backpack hotel, I m really disgusting, no breakfast included. To have access to internet, we have to like their facebook page!!!! (that s why, they must perhaps have such success with tripadvisor, the code we received finished every hour, we always had to put the code in order to continue, it is very annoying, they advertise about wifi, give it then!!! check in at 2pm, check out 11!!!!, I noticed a document on a wall advertising on some formules selling 2 nights+1 sea world or 1 Cuncumbarian sanctuary or surf course or entrance to night club, or...., all those formules including a free entrance counted less than the price I paid without any entrance, when I asked more info about it, they seemed not to be aware, once they told me that ordered that by internet is impossible, I asked them to have an entrance somewhere as they proposed and for sure to compensate the 50 AUD a night I paid. I showed them the document about that advertisement, they pull the document off the wall and told me, it was advertisement during Christmas???? They gave you receipt and other stuff of advertisement paper but.....nowhere, you can found their phonenumber??? I had the surprise to discver that being in a taxi in direction of the bus station, I wanted to contact them urgently, nowhere on their documents, you could find their phonenumber? I came back to the hotel cause I missed my bus, noticed them this fact, they didnt know themselves, they promissed to tell it to the manager who was always not there, or not present or no available. We couldnt reach him or her to have some precision. my last night, I spent it in a mixed 6 beds dormitory, the room was small, too hot, the carpet stincked, it was impossible to sleep or to breath even, I dont dare to think to all the acarians. What I retain most is the excessive cost.
The staff was super friendly and wonderful with any questions you had about the city, night life and excretions! Definitely made you feel like you we're at home!
This hostel was fantastic, couldn't fault the place or the staff! Gutted I had to lead but be back very soon!! Very friendly staff and management, travelling on my own and made to feel very welcome and included! Facilities excellent, loved the make shift kitchen while it was being renovated!! No expenses spared at this place, all sheets etc were decent quality, showers were hot and powerful. Couldn't ask for more!!
I didn't mind being further out from surfers but this may be the only issue anyone can find however this is a free shuttle bus provided by the hostel throughout the day. It was a lovely walk through a park to get to surfers for those who want he walk!!
1 hour free and slow wifi
Expensive and overpriced, far away from city centre, 20$ key deposit? Serious?! And of course you need to have cash with you. Bathroom very poor for space, quality & privacy. Another hostel were the priority is to sell alcoholic drinks at the bar. Embarrassing smell coming just outside the front door.
the sea is really really beautiful!! blue sky and sea. surfer paradise. and harbour town.
